The first exhibition of the year at Artfooly, “THE HIDDEN BIRD” brings to our attention both older and recent creations by Olga Morărescu-Mărginean.
Watercolors and drawings, surprising in their elegance and simplicity, the artist’s works have a specific dynamics, best described by the author herself:
“I would like the lines I trace on a white background to get outside the space of the painting, wander through the room, move up the walls. I would like people to see them getting longer, springing out of the painting, dancing through the room.”
Each painting pulsates life, luring the viewer into the world imagined by the painter like a window open towards a universe which seems to materialize under her brush strokes.
