marieta chirulescu - artist talk: indian summer 2018
Marieta Chirulescu’s work cultivates an ambiguity between painting and print that has become characteristic for her practice. The artist investigates process-based production, such as inkjet-printing on canvases that are partially painted over, sanded or erased. The artist reveals rather than conceals an editing practice, calling attention to the very act of looking or, in the words of French writer Georges Perec, ‘to discover what you’ve never seen, what you didn’t expect, what you didn’t imagine. (…) Neither the grandiose nor the impressive, but rather the reverse, the familiar rediscovered’.
