Irina Alimanestianu

I am a painter interested in the connection of our human consciousness to the world we live in. My process is to begin by painting or drawing with marks, colors,and shapes that build up into experiences of landscape, organic matter, and architectural constructs. We move comfortably between virtual worlds and the natural world – having come to an understanding that they are one and the same. Our perception of matter and consciousness has shifted, moved on to the idea that it is all energy that builds up and disintegrates in varying rhythms that repeat seamlessly through nature from the macro to the micro.

And so I do not start a painting with a specific thing or intent in mind but rather let the painting build on itself, on its own energy and logic, to where it can serve as a reflection of my human experience and hopefully resonate universally.
