Popa Strasnei Aculina
Prezentare Demers Artistic
Aculina Strasnei Popa is an artist who has made it despite the obstacles laid by the society or the destiny. Ambitious in the best sense of the word, she has followed with perseverance and tenacity her own way, avoiding being seduced by the, voices of mermaids” of fashion. She has never wanted to be like the others, she has always wanted to be “herself’. And she has made it.
She has achieved a serious and grave art of an exciting resonance. Deep in her soul, she possesses a richness of archetypes with an ascending tendency. I could say that, related to Aculina Strasnei Popa, C.G Jung provides us with the key to understanding of an artist who, under the impulse of irreproachable vocation, manages to find the exit of the labyrinth and rise into the light.
A religious breath crosses her works from a certain period when she especially devoted herself to easel graphic. A religious, but not a mystic breath the religiosity of Aculina Strasnei Popa derives from that unsophisticated, simple devotion of the Romanian peasant, everywhere and ever. A seriousness that generates a certain security for life and quietness for death the motives included in the composition of those works have been collected from the rustic space and integrated into an oneiric vision A haycock, the ladder, the wing, the wheel, the cross and the human, they are assembled in an image apparently “realistic”.
