Ideas of religion, existentialism and dictatorship dominate the iconography of my pieces, conveying layers of personal experience towards the subject matter. My practice is informed by different sources, from literature, film and my own cultural background. Growing up in Romania enforced experiences upon me that resonate within my work, particularly the strong presence of religion and the phantom of the communist regime.
The visual identity of my practice carries the themes employed to a sense of parody and absurdism, exploring the uncanny and a state of visceral uncertainty that is aimed towards the viewer. It explores a juxtaposition of different styles and the tension between the organic and mechanical, reflected in the use of painting and printmaking.
