Still Life II.2

LIFE STILLS #1

       It’s been a very intense week here in the village of Inoteşti, somewhere 100 km above Bucharest. Mothers ran from home leaving their children behind, youngsters drank ţuică to kill their toothache, dogs were frozen dead on the main roads, while I was discovering the realm of the unique and amazingly difficult technique of Watercolour, which I have very rarely approached in the past.

For the last couple of months I’ve been gathering stuff.
All kinds of stuff. Found, discarded, used, household electronics,  whatever life cannot digest and whatever bits of cardboard my stove doesn’t need to light the fire.

I’m aiming to close the gap between art and life using these  everyday materials to create new  forms and connections. But all it is, is form and colour. Just that, form and colour.

      This will be my on-going preoccupation until spring, when the project “LIFE STILLS” will be exhibited. While the artworks that will be shown at the exhibition will not appear on this blog (but on my portfolio website www.maiaoprea.ro/en) I will keep you updated with my progress.

       Here are some watercolors that are meant to be offered to some friends  :
