Prezentare Demers Artistic
All my family has been devoted to music, I was not an exception either, but I have chosen just to contemplate music and thus I attended the fine arts high school. I wished to study graphic arts, yet I happened to start my studies at the textile arts, Cluj-Napoca Academy of Visual Arts, hoping for a transfer as soon as possible. But I became enchanted by the infinite variety of this very special visual language, where forms and colours are completed by the soft tenderness, the airy quality of the three dimensional forms, the incomparable tactile sensation and other particular effects waiting for me to be discovered. This seems to be a delightful and permanent challenge. I only regret those fifteen or seventeen years when, under constraining circumstances, I was unfaithful to the act of creation. Waiting was still beneficial. Perhaps I had needed this silent period of professional maturization, not knowing which way to choose, as I refused to follow the fashionable path, where the shockingly unusual attempts to become the only aesthetic cathegory. The unmediated contact with wool, as I experienced the felting process, helped me out from the impasse.
