Romanian artist Mariana Sain-Morar presents "Enigmatic Visions" in a collective exhibitions at Agora Gallery in New York. Sain-Morar studied fine art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Iasi and Conservation and Restoration in Bucharest. She has exhibited throughout the United States and Europe and currently lives and works in San Diego.
"Mariana Sain-Morar's paintings are aware of their history. They have a folkloric, storytelling quality that enriches their post-impressionistic, cubist-inspired sensibility. Yet Sain-Morar never lets the past hold her back. She uses paint blithely and elegantly and, even when her figures and subjects remain stationary, her paintings always suggest forward motion. The blues and the earth tones that so often dictate her paintings' moods are hopeful and the birds that occasionally fly through the background or perch on a figure's head seem to urge Sain-Morar’s scenes into the future."
