For Andrada Feșnic, painting is a true experimental field where the overlapping of layers, the collage painterly effect and the carefully orchestrated decomposition of figurative elements de ne an artistic pro le visually marked by the School of Cluj, where the artist comes from, doubled by a highly innovative personal direction. Cut-outs of reality, or rather jigsaw puzzles that seem to be missing enigmatic pieces: Andrada Feșnic’s canvases invite the viewer into a complicated labyrinth of overlapping realities. Reality, Andrada Feșnic believes, is not under the dome of a single truth, and the artist has a duty to simply suggest the tracks the viewer should take, without any predetermined direction. Inner landscapes or spaces of co-existence of memory, dream, utopia, the absurd and what we conventionally call reality: such are the works by Andrada Feșnic.
