ART on DISPLAY @ Kube Musette
Calea Victoriei 114, Bucharest
Elena Dumitrescu’s art belongs to a school of neo-Expressionist, figurative sculpture and to her profound relationship with Greek-Roman Classicism, from where its impeccable technique and observation derives. Tradition and discipline, two concepts that the artist leans on, have solid roots in Bucharest sculpture school, and her Italian experience structured her research over ancient tradition, enriching her art in a solar overflow.
The sensitivity and delicacy of clay modeling is perfectly balanced with materials’ strictness and consistency, the severity of her themes is attenuated by playfulness that never leaves forms. Today, she is one of the important artists and teachers, and her work deserves all the attention of those who can enjoy a humanistic approach in an era of technology.
