Mioara is a Romanian-French artist. She grew up during the communist era of Romania, but after the Revolution she left her country and lived in many other places as Italy, Greece, Switzerland, France and India before she recently settled in Emirates.
Her paintings are deeply autobiographical, a poetical result of her intimate experience of self-discovery, a language which eventually could release its soul by expressing itself.
She endeavors to give a physical form to the immaterial, to the fragile states of mind like the melancholy, the longing, the silence, the absence.
The concept of the Blue Silence and the Golden Rain are her recurrent subjects of self-reflection, so precious for her, as a materialisation of the complexity of human beings, the exquise beauty and fragility when falling in love.
She experiments with textures to bring more substance, which connects her to the sensual, to the earth, to the material and visible.
The cracks are expressing her fragility, “la fleur de peaux”, the impermanence of things.
Fascinated by the Art of Mehendi in India – that ritual henna tattoo, popular in Arabic culture, as well, and transposing it in her work, she found a response to her need for peace of mind. This intricate repetition of patterns became a kind of mantra, an open door for meditation, symbolism and poetical imagination.
Golden and silver are her strongest psychological colours, and the blue is the one she crave for, the colour of her longing, the blue of the distance and silence, the colour of something that she feel like will never can touch or appropriate.
Crystallize a feeling, that is her work. “Because Art is the name we give to our feelings made public,” As she like to paraphrase Iain Thomas.
