|Works by Romanian artist Simona Soare are featured in the collective exhibition "Narrative Sequences," presented by the Center for Book Arts.
Drift into Purple Blue is showing a unique artwork, an over 5 m color etching with a fantastical world depicted in eight scenes and the other artworks, by the contrary, Miniatures 2009, where the surrealistic world is a microcosmos full of enigmatic details.
Simona Soare was born in Romania, Galati 1.08.1979. She studied in UNA (Universitatea de Arte Bucuresti) until 2003 by the Prof. Dr. Marilena Preda Sanc. In 2003 she was an Erasmus Student in KHB (Kunsthochschule Berlin Weisensee) and later 2007, she graduated with MA Art in Context at the UdK (Universitaet der Kuenste Berlin).
She is living now as an artist in Berlin and her main fields are etchings, printed art and art in public space. The artist's stay in New York is supported by RCINY.
The exhibition "Narrative Sequences" will focus on work that creates a sequence of images that leads from one to another as a literal or an implied narration unfolds. By this narrowing down to a single aspect of an artist's book, Rosenberg is able to broaden the varieties of how artists explore telling a story, through form and content. For each of these artists in these works, a narrative emerges through the relationship of the previous to the following. They explore various commentaries on societies through who we are as a whole or as individuals, through personal experience or as participants in a broader culture, in an explicit way or a more abstract dance of natural forms.
Participating artists include, Christoff Baron, Zane Berzina, Chris Bierl, Jay Bolotin, Sang-ah Choi, Beatrice Coron, Bill Creston, Kahn/Selesnick, Ben Katchor, Rachel Lumsden, Rafael Mundi, Heidi Neilson, Julia Schmid, Karina Skvirsky, Simona Soare.
