Visual art improves health and overall well-being. Even Plato believed that arts affect our character, trigger emotions and influence our behavior. With this in mind, we have selected works by artists who take you away from the busyness of modern-day life and invite you to immerse yourself into a more relaxing, tranquil environment.
Constantin Pacea’s inspiration is the truthfulness of nature. His series “La Isleta” takes us to impressive, remote islands. Expressive interplays of forms and colors, the result of a complex creative process which readily embraces the unexpected. Rodica-Ioana Ghilea loves the act of drawing. In the style of meticulous and complex artists such as Albrecht Durer and Carel Fabritius, she describes her world with amazing detail. Representations of birds, insects and portraits are metaphors for her soul. Ion Nemtoi takes glass, one of the most fragile materials in the world and turns it into opulent, powerful works of art. He tries to shape it, to turn it into sculptural forms, to render it three-dimensional, whereas color helps him to give it a painterly quality.
Vasile Sarca is a color artist. His avoids symmetry, so that lively, exciting effect is achieved. Ion Mandrescu’s bronze sculptures are a meditation on human existence.Regina Moritz pen stroke in her drawings conveys a form of tenderness that results from her careful handling of the situation of touching the pen tip with the drawing or watercolor paper. Her works have a subtle lyrical message. Victoria Zidaru’s works have a natural purity, made from handmade paper, cloth and medicinal herbs. Daniela Fainis builds plants from the inside, and they expand into reliefs of porcelain petals, floral imprints, and graphic interventions. She is interested in the physiological process, in transformation and growth, from the stage of the seed, to the one of efflorescence, making the transience of our life visible. Atena Elena Simionescu’s beautiful engravings draw attention to the fragility of nature.
