Art in Conversation with Maria Furnea

ABOUT THE ARTIST
albani.jpg

Images, melted feelings in color, mixed with subconscious states that create a decoction for the aesthetic healing of the viewer, chromatically sensitized harmonies, plastic surfaces that the fluidization of color gives transparent waves, spontaneously directed by bursts that create a melodic thinking towards spaces that, through discreet eye contact, generates pleasant beneficial disorders.

The sensitivity of the brush is supported by discreetly colored juices, which calm you but sometimes move you by living the thought. No, they are not just spontaneous games, they are emanations of feelings stored in time and that stood in line to bring them to the surface again and again through spiritually chiseled colors.

Artist Statement

Artist and Creation are two notions that intertwine and that can often change their role.

The relationship between the artist and the committed art is often loaded with vague shadows of tolerance, both perceived as two halves of the same creative process. And because there is often a disturbing silence in the artist's studio, he would often like to have someone to talk to.


Out of the desire to have this dialogue, in my abstract works, you can often find various figurative things inserted, because in this way, they make me feel integrated in my own creation, which make the silence of my workshop disappear.

The exhibition I propose, “Manifesto for peace”, deals with my relationship with the objects in the works, which are forced to act according to the scenario designed by me, but also to be a good advisor.

Thoughts, arguments, about the exhibition "Manifesto for peace" by Maria Furnea


Images, melted feelings in colour, mixed with subconscious states that create a decoction for the aesthetic healing of the viewer, chromatically sensitized harmonies, plastic surfaces that the fluidization of colour gives transparent waves, spontaneously directed by bursts that create a melodic thinking towards spaces that, through discreet eye contact, generates pleasant beneficial disorders.


The sensitivity of the brush is supported by discreetly coloured juices, which calm you but sometimes move you by living the thought. No, they are not just spontaneous games, they are emanations of feelings stored in time and that stood in line to bring them to the surface again and again through spiritually chiseled colours. These are works not made for a flat, simple look, but they require deeper looks, especially when you find that what is offered to you for viewing is packed in deep feelings, which forces you as a consumer to try to visually peel the colour film, as to see what lies beneath it, as a mysterious content, to find that the dream offered is not trivial but also colour, a symbol of the human brain.


Sometimes I have the feeling that Maria paints the silence, the colours become light and vitality again. Colour is not in and of itself, but the direct expression of a longing, a melancholy, or a jubilation in the face of the great life.


Maria Furnea's painting is par excellence a painting that suggests through chromatic metamorphoses, the desire to dialogue with the viewer, which she attracts with the warmth of chromatic accords. They are works that communicate a living and sincere emotion, a desperate invitation to meditate on events that have become colour, and rendered by a brush coordinated by an artist who knows how to discipline its effects.


If I were to define Maria Furnea's painting, I could say that it is the refined calibration of the inner seasons, colourful thoughts of time, disconnected states left free, floating chromatically. This sincerity and freshness of the works dominates the mixture between dream and reality, in a suspended time, where the air of firmness is disturbed only by the depth of thought.


My exhortation is: wake up visually, strengthen your faith in beauty, purify yourself through colour.
