my projects

The series presented here shed light on my current concerns, seeking to identify visual patterns that recur, to varying degrees, and sometimes almost obsessively, in each series. The context in which the subject is seen is crucial.

What cultural and personal associations does the viewer establish with the object? How do these factors influence the way the subject is perceived and interpreted? Generally, visual patterns are used to create a sense of order, balance, and harmony in a design, or conversely, to convey a feeling of chaos, movement, or energy. In some cases, visual patterns can also be used to convey meaning or symbolize ideas. How can these reference points be manifested and destabilized?

Similar to the recurring motif of water (Cloud stories, Glassworks of Elena or Shapes of water), which serves as both backdrop and actor in my work, foreground objects and background subjects alternate, exchanging their positions, merging within the lens. The viewer’s process of identification stumbles, and the elements become polymorphic, embracing different dimensions, unfamiliar shadows, and reflections, as seen in the series Could be on Mars. A new narrative can then emerge.

Thus, playing with distance, circling around the object (The Corselet, Monkey Mind), traversing patterns of representation can produce the indecipherable, the familiar, a loss of meaning, or a new configuration of reference points. Looking closely, observing from afar, being in the midst of movement (Between A&B), encountering reflections (Blend in, Reflected events), the reversals, and the doubles of reality (Light just beyond red). My photography practice continuously challenges the certainties of perception, both in the abstraction of form and in the identification of figures.

recovered memory

This archive rather contains the period 1989 – 1997, when I was studying at the Ion Andreescu Academy of Fine Arts in Cluj, a city that gradually became my new “home”.
