Prezentare Demers Artistic
“Between the major themes that preoccupy the painter Daniela Gaftea and that always ask for other artistic points of view is that referring to the Christ Myth. The relationship between cross and the crucified, tragedy and the self sacrifice symbology for the salvation of the other acquires in artistic expression the sense of genuine ”memento”. The viewers spontaneously adhere to the image and end assuming it like a dimension of Christian faith. The dramatic nature of the compositional expression, the direct or revealed to each person senses lead to the idea that the theme is destined to the eternal theological or artistical interpretation. The attentively expressed foreshortenings generate the veridical and tragical impression. The chromatically emphasized accents of the foreground die in the shadows of the depth plans. The Saviour’s expression, beyond the assumed suffering leaves the impression of the revival’s hope.
Daniela Gaftea has the imaginative and expressional possibilities of an artist capable to repeat a millenary subject and to connect it to the modern man’s interest…” – Valentin Ciucă
“Allusion to a religious background, viewed from a historical perspective and open at the same time towards order and to abstract freedom includes the work of Daniela Gaftea as transtemporal landmark.”
