Artist Statement

I want to create an art with a message for my fellow men and by searching for the rescue solutions of the individual to urge reflection and hope. My painting is influenced by the socio-political situation in Romania in the 20th and 21st centuries. The imprint of socialism, with the overthrow of the value system, led to profound and sometimes tragic changes in the Romanian society. The deprivation of freedom of expression has influenced the everyday existence of people. Some have suffered virtually no blame in communist prisons or forced deportations. All these facts have induced natural questions about how some of these people managed to survive, the concept of happiness and the existential meaning.
