Popa Emanuela

„What is art for me?

I think art is love in the sense of giving, of sharing with the world our souls as artists by creating something which will arouse emotions in others and emotions are what make us human. Just as we are astonished in front of a sunset, so we can lose our breath in front of a painting or any form of art. It happened to me many times and it was overwhelming.

Then, eventually, artists connect with people by energy, colors, vision, in a word, emotions and, therefore, I really believe by art there is a hope that mankind will become more caring, more loving and, ultimately, more human.”

About the „Cosmos” project:

„I love abstract painting.These three works are part of a little project, that I had at the university, called „Cosmos”. My inspiration was the painting of W. Kandisnky and J. Pollock, combining the geometrical elements of  Kandisnky and Pollock’s dripping technique trying to create something new. Kandinsky studied music and his art relied mostly on musical harmony, nothing was done at random in his art.

I loved the idea of harmony, rhythm and fluidity, but I also tried to be spontaneous creating so-called „music of the spheres”, something ethereal, making the mystery of universe more accessible to us by art. I want my art to visually impact the viewers  in such a way that they can feel the energy and the vibration of the colors and the whole dynamic of the compositions and, eventually, to stir up their emotions because art is not about perfectionism, it is about emotion.”
