About The Artwork

"Through the eyes of Beatrice, mirroring in them will allow Dante to receive the whole visual reality of the unseen world " (The writing on the back of the tablet, in Romanian language, from "The eyes of Beatrice", by Horia-Roman Patapievici) TECHNICAL DETAILS : even though I put this artwork under the section collage, there is no glue used, everything is transferred using acrylic mediums: the text as well as the image are monotypes (except the red colour) TABLETS: What I gather under the name of ‘Tablets’ are some kind of hieroglyphs of studio life / mental structures that oscillate between a book and a painting / tool-container. A tablet can be viewed, read, touched, smelled, and involves the viewer's body. All Tablets have two sides: the image (sketch / photo) and a quote (writing / photo). Several tablets are organised into library bodies and correspond to the structure of my personal Dictionary of quotations. Tablets involve: stirring, sifting, storing, preserving, priming, locking, stacking, sanding, transferring, cutting, wetting, drying , using - Tablets are made of a very personal matter: a mixture of maché paper (obtained by shredding and macerating old books and other recycled papers), plant dust (obtained by grinding the hulls and the remains of dried vegetal food throughout the year), ashes(As a result of the fire made in the stove over the winter), using flour or glue as a binder, and allowing the whole to dry in the sun for a long time. The image is usually transferred using acrylic mediums and does not in any case involve any glueing, as in the traditional collage. - IN-TRIGÂ INSTALLATION The over eighty tablets that make up the In-Trigâ installation are organised according to several themes that correspond to the words of my personal dictionary of interest quotations: PAPER, LINE, DEATH, SHOULDER, SKIN, REALITY, SENSATION, COUNTRY. Alongside the tablets, other elements - studio leavings / workshop remnants - which served as basis for the installation, such as jars of ash and vegetal dust, dried flowers, coal, salt, boxes of paper remains, mummified objects, From old books, underlined books, notebooks with handwritten quotations, sketches of ideas, photos, objects found, memories, etc.

Painting is located in the center of my artistic interests, and through it I investigate concepts of time, memory, absence, waste, decay, violence, identity, subjectivity and vulnerability The purpose behind my latest artwork (painting-graphics, collage, assemblage) is to explore the expressive properties of paint and other materials through physical and poetic processes, following the development of a personal dialogue in between thoughts and colors, emotions and memories, lines and gestures, hesitations and decisions. Desiring to pull the viewer from representation, I like to draw attention to the painting process and to many painterly 'imperfections', which can be clearly visible in the works. My paintings are often built up in layers, during long periods of time, through a process of recording and analysing natural forms, shapes and objects which I make myself, or my own manipulated photographs. These visual sources often resonate with my old drawings and sketches, which are in turn incorporated in the future paintings. The brushwork experiments in the studio and the repetitive structural forms found in my environment become a language of my work. If I were to synthesize in a sole phrase what characterises my interventions, steps, installations and artworks of the media I have experimented so far (photography, video, performance, installation, sculpture), I would say that they are all somewhat self-referential. Self-referential in the sense that my work doesn't demonstrate nor does it present the functioning of structures belonging to the territory of the real. But rather it embraces these structures, interrogates them, in the pursue of a visual expression where reality and imaginary, conscience and unconscious, life and death stop being felt as incompatible. www.maiaoprea.ro/en http://maiastefanaoprea.wordpress.com
