Art in Conversation with Andreea Rus
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Visual Artist | Romania
Andreea Rus is a visual artist, painter, with a doctorate in visual arts, in 2011, at UAD Cluj-Napoca. ”I call my creation as a whole of Neo-Sacro-Expressionism, a title given by myself, with deep roots in expressionism, neo-expressionism, and in the specificity of this people who lived in and to the sacred, over the centuries, inspired by Constantin Noica's philosophy.
NO ARTWORKS FOR SALE AT THE MOMENT
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.
