Artist name: GABRIELA CRISTU.
“ The Theme of the Human Being, full of contradictions, passions and sensuality, with his struggles and his anguishes but with sublime creative powers as well has preoccupied me in my whole artistic activity. Aiming at expressing states of mind and feelings, a whole world of other creatures accompany the image of the human being in my tapestries, transforming everythings into genuine stories which, similar to” The Book of Sand” by Borges, get other meaning at every new reading. Imagery and Metamorphosis.( … ) “. Gabriela Cristu.
