Daniela Grapă, 1976, România
The causal core of my painting is the human being. My main concern is based in representing the intimate, psychological reality of self and exploring the infinite depth of the human soul. My artistic approach is an exercise of contemplation and interrogation of the dynamics of the relationship between essence and appearance, singular-dual, intention-accident, language-noise, dynamics-rest, equilibrium-imbalance.
The fine line of demarcation between the two territories is implicit. I try to place myself equidistantly, in a personal space, in an abstract, observable time in the two territories: one extra sign and you have entered the other realm. I paint to shine light upon the complex , intrinsic universe of every human being.
