MOCANU Alexandra N33 Tapestry (2019)

Born in Bucharest, Alexandra Mocanu grew up immersed in the world of handcrafted arts, her mother is a textile artist and her father designs furniture. In the midst of the scents, sounds, art tools and materials surrounding her, Mocanu began to explore her own compositions and perceptions, first through photography and then through painting and tapestry. Inspired by the spontaneity of repeated gestures, her abstract paintings are created in gouache at first and then meticulously decomposed upon a loom. Her contemporary work illustrates an instinctive, thoughtful process, which allows the illusion of the passing of time to appear part of her work.
