  • About the work

Collage on wood (Signed on reverse).

Powerful colors seize the viewer, while the numerous individual pieces of the collages overlap each other to relate to their own place within the composition. The face, which is composed of these cubist combinations of fabric and painted paper applications, presents itself to the viewer in frontal view, while wearing a horrified facial expression. With their colorful exterior, which resembles many ornaments, and the abstract forms of their individual elements, they are reminiscent of the mask images of African tribes of peoples who served as models for the Cubists. The pieces of fabric, some of which are made of faux fur, support this impression.

About the Artist

1977 Bucharest, Romania

Raluca Arnăutu was born in 1977 in Bucharest, Romania. She graduates the University of Art from Bucharest, Romania. She became known to the public through large textile installation. In 2012 she represents Romania at the 3rdInternational Kids’ Carnival “Tales and Thoughts” in Venice, Italy with the project “Beasts and Superbeasts”.

Raluca Arnăutu said: “Generally, my works represent a mixture of readymade and fabrics sculpture and at the same time have a hidden emotional imprint somewhere in childhood”. Objects and drawings signed by artist evoke emblems characters from the ancient fairy tales and legends such as wolf, dragon, eagle, polar bear, fish or cat, through technical and mental collages, that outline a world of strong feelings where you can no longer distinguish between reality and dream.

Works in private collections from Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Great Britain, Romania, etc.

Raluca Arnăutu is represented by Anaid Art Gallery since 2011.
