Art in Conversation
with Maria JARDA

ABOUT THE ARTIST
albani.jpg

The colors are what allow him to give a concrete shape to his admiration for the main theme: Nature. And for MARIA JARDA, color is life, it is strength, it is a message, in itself. Feelings are the basis of creation, they are responsible for the way the artist relates to subjects when painting. Feelings or FEELING, generically speaking, emerge from each of his works - the one put on the canvas, with pathos, and the one felt by the viewer, in front of the work. Feeling is the vector through which the painter's condition reaches the eye and the soul of the beholder. Nature is a constant of his artistic activity, whether it is the forest, with its trees that connect the earth to the sky, in an ascent that takes us to the heights, through the way it filters the light to induce states. of contemplation.

Artist Statement

Flower compositions are an opportunity to gather, in bundles, states of bliss, the outpouring of the feeling of beauty. Having a predilection for flower vases, we find in his works chromatic and compositional correspondences with works of the great names of Romanian art, bringing us, once again, close to the classics. Marines are also another way of rendering, on canvas, the interiority of the artist, his sensitivity to see on a shore, profiled on a sunset bathed in color, a state of warmth and trembling, equally. Its sea, calm as play, reaches the shore, to rest, after a long and hectic adventure, at sea. The sunset - the end of the day and the journey, is a silent witness to reaching the final destination. It is the color that, passing through the feeling, gives a sensitive representation of the nature of Maria Jarda, in all its splendor. "
