About The Artwork

This drawing is part of a series of drawings entitled "The lost city", which contains the images of beautiful old edifices from Bucharest, my city, left to parish in ruin and oblivion. They were part of an exhibition I held in 2019, and some of these large houses - I am happy to say - are in a process of restauration. This deteriorated ornament representing a woman with a beautiful smile, sits on the walls of such a house. I am very curious if this bassorelief will be also subject of restauration...I do hope this will be the case!

Hello, My name is Gabriela Anitei, I’m 64 years old, born and living in Bucharest, Romania. I am a professional painter, graduated of The Fine Arts Academy in Bucharest in 1984. From that moment on I started to participate to various exhibitions, workshops, and periodically I presented my works in one man show exhibitions in my country. I am also professor, teaching children painting, drawing and art history notions. I create paintings and graphics in my late father’s studio, this being the place in which I have learned and developed the passion for colors, for the artistic world and where I have learned how to become a professional painter, under the attentive guidance of my father. I live modestly, but somehow in the sense defined by the journalist and poet Christopher Morley. Quote: 'There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.' So yes,I spend my free time trying to load my soul and my studio with all the richness of images, feelings and ideas that I can steal from this wonderful Nature that STILL surrounds us. In my artistic world I read a lot, I listen a lot more to various kinds of music, but mostly classical, especially when I’m working. Thus, my thoughts and feelings which emerge during these occupations, are the ones to be found explicit or just suggested in my works. Also, the pleasure experienced every time I am in the midst of Nature, far from the crowds and urban noises, is completed by the pleasure - even the need – of photographing everything that impresses me and leads me towards meditation. So that, when I return to my studio I surprisingly find myself painting and reproducing more my state of mind and feelings experienced before the subject, then the subject itself.
