Artist Statement:

"For me, the photographs are not just souvenirs of precious moments and beloved people. They are mighty storytellers. There is beauty in everything, especially in the way the natural elements reveal themselves to us untamed. The beauty of the landscapes and the evanescence of a solitary and magic moment challenges me to capture the scene for eternity.

Feelings, a glimpse of reality, a fantasy are some of the sources of my painting’s inspiration. I mix materials, I bend the lines, and I use symbols and shapes to create and hide my message. Among my favourite subjects and symbols, one may find the ship and the car as expressions of the human condition, the bubbles and balloons as expressions creativity, the beach as symbol of the inner world, the sea and the road as symbols of life flow, the sky and the clouds as expression of spiritual freedom, and the abstract as expression of feelings and unconscious thoughts." - Ioana Jitaru
