STACKING/ STIVUIRE @ Annart Gallery 2016

[EN] Following the receipt of the AnnArt Prize that the AnnArt Foundation offers to young artists, starting from 2011, in September 2016 took place the exhibition STACKING, curated by Raluca Băloiu, which comprised a series of works, from painting to the installation-object – created over the years 2015, 2016. The viewer meets with a complex network of pieces of an unusual archive, composed of objects built on media such as canvas, cardboard and tablets; By the composition of the latter (recycled paper, vegetable dust and ashes) the artist Maia Ştefana Oprea defines the approach of recovering a flow of personal life, with openness to the collective horizon, interconnected and impermanent.

Privitorul se întâlneşte cu o reţea complexă de piese ale unei arhive insolite, compuse din obiecte construite pe suporturi precum pânză, carton şi tăbliţe; prin compoziţia acestora din urmă (hârtie reciclată, praf vegetal şi cenuşă) artista Maia Ștefana Oprea îşi defineşte abordarea recuperării unui flux al vieţii personale, cu deschidere către orizontul colectiv, interconectat şi impermanent.

DEVIS GREBU in the opening of AFTER ZĂERCS exhibition

Master Devis Grebu honoured me greatly by opening my exhibition AFTER ZĂERCS @Signum Gallery in Bucharest:

EN: … she is a sort of locomotive, a locomotive that doesn’t crush the truck or the barriers when they meet, but who simply — I would say– plants flowers behind. She is multiple, has no limits, has this curiosity of the genius to insert, to intervene in all areas, in all matters … and succeeds, and does them very well, in my opinion even better: out of the ordinary. I am so happy for her evolution. It was 11 years ago that we met for the first time. (…) This exhibition is a more special exhibition, since it also has its humor, having been started out of a language problem …… ever since her childhood.

She uses many different materials here, which she either combines or suggests. In the paintings that she does with oil or acrylic on canvas she still suggests combinations of diverse materials. I do not think that one can define her, figurative, surrealist, abstract? I look at her paintings and they could be abstract, but also surrealist or figurative. Because you discover – if you want — in each of the paintings elements that are specific to these categories. I think this is actually a quality. Better yet, not to be integrated under a specific dome. Neither I, in what I do, I don’t think that I could fall under a certain (…) and maybe I an subjective because I see in her the same ambitions, the same desires.
