Art in Conversation with Elena Dragulelei Dumitru

ABOUT THE ARTIST
albani.jpg

,,Elena Dragulelei Dumitru touches the unseen in her art work with the grace of a conductor who guides his orchestra to deepand original interpretations. The artist harmonises the chromatic sounds in a lyrical discourse with dramatic accents. A composition dominated by surfaces, lines of force and delicate traces reveals a non-verbal message loaded with harmony. The pictorial gesture becomes a writing thatamplifies a certain emotional state that the artist wants us to share along with her.

Elena Dragulelei Dumitru‘s works are reflections of a sensitive ego that explores the worlds we go through."

Artist Statement

... to be an artist means soul and dedication. To give yourself unconditionally, with your thoughts, feelings, impressions andespecially with your dreams. A white surface is full of unsuspected feelings that you bring to the surface with thirst, love and why not with courage. The feelings are there ... you know it and it takes a lot of work and pasion to bring them to life on canvas.

Sometimes they stubbornly stays there, provocatively, teasing, until you find yourself ... or lose yourself.

The feeling is that a new dimension of complete freedom has been added to the Universe. The hidden things becomes certainty.
