About me

photo

Alina Ciuciu is an incredibly gifted artist who demostrates a mastery of painting in a wide range of styles and unusual, extraordinary topics.

Her paintings show a variety of influences, which vary from day to day: realist, impressionist, abstract... She often uses only a “palette knife”, and textures with acrylic “impasto” which creates an amazing three-dimensional effect.

Her subjects might be ordinary scenes, people and animals, or fantastic images of a wild imagination and tremendous heart. They must be seen in person to be appreciated - or at least up close: tap or click one, and enlarge to see the detail...

Read more...

You’ll see an amazing depth of vibrant colors: such wonderful and beautiful hues, almost jumping off the canvas! And the very thick, almost too deep textures...

Often the setting appears quite common, but is so sharp in its details... Maybe an unusual but marvelous use of shapes and definition -- what an incredible imagination she has!

And her paintings exude her intense feelings: bursting with excitement; very passionate and always sensual; filled with love; captivating and endearing...

To view one, to pause and gaze at the moment she has stopped and put onto the canvas -- not just its shape, but its very essence: With paint not words, she captures a person’s mood, a person’s heart; their deepest desires; their very Soul.

And the next time you look at it: maybe it tells a different story...

Each painting is amazing, stunning; and when you think you’ve found your favorite, you may find the next one is even better!

Also, each often contains a mystery: Why is one flower unlike the others? Why do two very different things share the exact same color? Why the Title? If you are curious, why not Contact her and ask? She may reply with a direct answer -- or with yet another mystery!

And so Alina’s art is not only to be admired; it is to be felt, to be experienced. Her top-quality works never fail to impress: full of rich colors, beauty, life, passion, and wonder... Each painting is an amazing gift to us, something to be treasured forever.

From the Mondadori catalog “Artisti ‘19” (translated):

CIUCIU ALINA - Born in Oradea, Romania. A self-taught painter, she lets her imagination gallop and here it takes shape in images with very unique shapes and colors: she engages in intense strokes, or frames glimpses of landscapes dear to her, reproducing them with precise, realistic intent and with particular attention to chromatic variations, highlighting the romantic sensitivity. She calibrates the stroke, alternating delicacy and intensity, giving light to the same fundamental role that belongs to post-impressionist painting. She participates in exhibitions and national and international events.
