I have the strong belief that in this time of chaos and uncertainty, beauty and balance can save our spirits. My series "Mandala" is originated in that deep need I've felt inside and I've read in people's eyes, that need of safety, harmony, protection and finding one's way home. Lately, I've felt inspired to approach spiritual and metaphysical art, which has deep significance for many people and can be a powerful meditative and ritual tool. I've felt like using mandalas in my artworks to create what Jung believed was a "safe refuge of inner reconciliation and wholeness". By using colorful circular geometric patterns in my artworks, I create mandalas (in Sanskrit "magic circle" and symbol of the universe) to provide a sacred space into which the person who is contemplating them can invite the Self and experience integration and wholeness. Just like the women in the portraits, who are surrounded by this colorful geometric focused outer universe that is perfectly balanced with the inner universe. Digital collage, printed on paper. Printed with 4 cm white border. This work will be shipped in a secure tube. © Catalin ILINCA

fragments from an interview given to ARTDEX: // What motivates you to create? // I'm a very creative person, so I just create! It's in my nature, I simply can't imagine life otherwise. If I didn't paint or draw, I would definitely write or compose music, or I would make my own movies. // Tell us about your artistic style? // Most of my works are figurative, but I also have an abstract landscapes series. Generally speaking, what we call abstract painting could fall into various genres or categories, but my tryout in this field could be labeled as lyrical abstract. While my work in the figurative area could be simply associated to contemporary realism or contemporary figurative. I've always been a very versatile artist, I've experienced a lot of different insights and perspectives, I've embraced various styles or genres, depending on my inner evolution and on the faces of my evolution as an artist. At some point in this evolution, I've even felt like creating a new style, a style which I called Magic Expressionism. It's about a series of compositions that remind of the surrealistic current, as I put together elements that have could suggest an oneiric state, but, at the same time, personal manner and the visual expression I used set them apart. // Does creating art help you heal? // Definitely, yes! Both at a personal level and as an artist. I'm going through a metamorphic process right now. And it's not so simple :) It has its ups and downs, but I'm happy and enjoying it, because I feel I'm on the right track. I don't care how long it will take and how hard it can get anymore, it will probably take me a life time. I've progressively realized that all of my convictions and principles, the image I had of myself, what I thought my personality was like, all these were mainly external programs or patterns I had assimilated during my childhood, from school, family, environment. Many years, I thought that an artist's soul should be torn by a constant inner turmoil and disappointment regarding the present. I thought that frustration was the source and the propeller of creativity. I was wrong and this belief brought me confusion and unhappiness. I'm finally happy I could clear my perspective and realize that being on the dark side is a false and pointless way. I'm glad that people can see now the beauty, the serenity, the inner light in my paintings. I have the feeling that my artworks are always one step ahead of me.
