Artist: Irina Ojovan
Irina Ojovan’s artwork is characterized by a subtle, yet specific composition of color tones. The color in her work exists solely for its own sake. Here, color is not subordinate to narrative or figurative lines or forms. Here color is liberated from the brush’s structure, its movement and its style. Little by little, the artist applies each individual layer of color, to create a pictorial space that is free of any representational perspective.
In some works, the artist grants the viewer a glimpse of the underlying layers through a kind of envelope. Often she leaves pencil lines behind, which perhaps stand for unfinished ideas that will only be thought through in the next work. Ojovan’s paintings, for the artist herself, are manifestations of her own thoughts and associations that point to the unspoken in life. >> more
