Watercolors

Since 2014 Ardeleanu also works with watercolors parallel to her main series of paintings. Those watercolors are soft, colorful and accurate the same time.

Mona Ardeleanu

*1984, Lörrach, Germany

Educated by Daniel Richter, Franz Ackermann and Karin Kneffel Mona Ardeleanu posses a huge variety of expression in painting. For a couple of years she creates series with strange arrangements of patterns, materials and fabrics which are shown in front of a monochrome background, floating and without any reference. Such compositions inspire gaze on one hand to inwardly create a clear image but on the other hand they turn into the opposite – the image dissolves into colour only. While perceiving the image a basic uncertainty evolves. What do I really see?
