Ruxandra Papa

Born in 1963 - Romania


Ruxandra Papa is a Romanian artist. She completed university studies at the "Nicolae Grigorescu" Academy of Fine Arts in Bucharest, as Master of Fine Arts, with three majors in Painting (Monumental Art), Conservation-Restoration and Art Teaching. In 1995 she took a Restoration and preservation course - painting on wood at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California.

She won several distinctions and prizes : Honorable Prize - Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Canada, 1988, First Prize at the International Art Exhibition of Miniature, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Canada in 1989, Honorable Prize, "Del Bello" Gallery, Canada en 1995.

Ruxandra Papa paints "mystery in daylight" as Virgil Mocanu says in a preface of one of her catalogues. Detached from the natural environment and depicted in part as characters in spaces with openings towards infinite the items of our daily life have grandeur and mystery. It is not Surrealism, as some people might think when in a hurry they try to find in a debut the influence of an artistic moment, but portrait painting, under a paradigm sign.

The eyes of an artist know to impose a motif, may this be as common as possible, so that a normal table covered with a cloth may impress us and make us think of philosophical issues. Analyzing in detail the images created by Ruxandra Papa we could notice that the painter is not interested in objects, but in geometry that the objects have only the role of translating into the known and tangible background a tidy unknown dimension humanized through geometry.
