Constantine Cionca (1955, Romanian born, United States) is an artist who works in a variety of media. On his conceptual digital work Cionca tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way that generates diverse meanings. By studying sign processes, signification and communication, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality.
&<8232;”I think of my digital work as blending manipulated collage of fragments: objects, drawings, paintings, photographs. They are improvisational images that question our&<8232; making of the art through language and knowledge. My digital project has always been grounded in pleasure and aesthetics”.
His digital works question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture. By applying abstraction, he tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
His works doesn’t reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Constantine Cionca currently lives and works in New York.
