• The drawings are a way of understanding myself in relationship with the world around me-of understanding myself as a Balkan and finally as a human being.  They represent attitudes, stages of human feelings and places (photographed in Romania and Bosnia). Feelings and places from "where I belong". My series, generally speaking, is not about "where", is about "why" I belong here and not somewhere else. My series is about being aware why I belong to Romania and the Balkans in general. The works are about feelings that  I've had during years. Feelings of loneliness, of isolation, of continuous interiorisation. We sometimes feel like that. Isolated, without hope,without escape. We expect to be saved from ourselves by an exterior force.  The feelings are "integrated" in specific spaces, currently met in the Balkan region -abandoned places, old buildings...places that are considered to be characteristically or sometimes kind of a cliche for this region by  the westerns. A world torn apart by history people and circumstances. A world of doubts, of insecurities, but in essence a true, vivid world. We are alive and passional in everything we choose to do. I tried to capture the "local flavour"  in a more serious way, not in a picturesque way as it is generally done. This is me seen  through human figures and places from where I was born and from where I currently live.
