“The art is a symphony of colors, and is an inner resolution; it is a combination of the inner perceptions, the analytical, and the rational. No matter where I am – whether jogging in the park, listening to Moby, or strolling in the city, I always have my sketchbook and I paint with my watercolors,” says Lia.
Lia’s exhibit at the Dacia Gallery included a new portrait.
“In Dacia Gallery I showed my portrait, titled “Winter” – it is a portrait of a woman from the emblematic period of the human history – the Renaissance, which I connect to the blossoming of human creativity, of innovation and of a new kind of spirituality. The society is in its highest peak. I depicted the women with a Renaissance vision – all glowing and with flowers in her hair – as a symbol of the blossoming of the inner potentials and abilities. The figure is positioned on the background of a winter landscape – forest, covered with glistening snow – as a symbol of purity and innocence”.
Her new project is series of watercolors with figures dancing on the beautiful tango music.
