SAFIR – RIFAS

Dorina Maria Pantea a.k.a Safir

Dorina Pantea born on 11.23.1987 in Deva. Over the years of study in faculty, Ph.D. and MFA studies, I gained the experience and values necessary for any artist, also I consider that the diversity in ideas and concepts is an essential addition to the development and introduction of “innovation” in the Art World: “the image create the most magnificent cocktail of effect and sensation”. My creations include traditional painting, figurative or abstract paintings, drawings, and digital art. On the one hand, I give free will to the flow evolution and informal gestures, stimulating disintegrative forces, and on the other hand, clarifying forms of human traits, these wandering spirits are pushed to the limit of a symbolic dialogue with the audience.

“Diversity and originality are two concepts that characterize me. When someone chooses to go on a single road, its vision is blurred and it will not notice anything around itself, this happens in art also, so I chose not to follow only one “art direction”, instead I diversified my artistic approach. One thing can be recognized in my work and this is the personal touch of my style, this does not change, it’s like a personal and artistic DNA.
Beyond the looking glass, you will see the real me.” (SAFIR, Dorina Maria Pantea)

Diana Loredana Pantea a.k.a Rifas

Diana Pantea born on 28.04.1983 in Deva. In the years of study in faculty, MFA, and Ph.D. studies, I accumulated the experience and values each artist need. My artistic approach presents a series of themes and subjects the synthesis of the “abyss” found in the Fine Arts, and is discussed in broad perspectives, with projections of shadows and reflections in the mystic field, of cosmogony and primordial sin, but also tragic, cybernetics and imaginary, artificial morbidity of modernity, metaphorical and violent actionism that distort reality and transforms it, creating a shadow image of what lies in the depths of the human being. There is a number of issues that discuss the artistic abyss outlined in my paintings. My creations include traditional paintings and drawings in which the approach shows a substrate that raises topics of psychological, philosophical, mystical, mythological. Mixed technique paintings are made by joining or patching pictorial surfaces with different combinations of materials and textures of cloth, cardboard, plywood, crystals, and pulp color, well-integrated in the coherence compositional structure.
“Matter and deformed concept of the relief form are the two approaches that define my art. What I want to output through my work is that whatever has a shape, color, and relief and is tangible as the matter is ephemeral. Materiality does not last, and yet, we are trying to capture its time and duration through painting. Everything starts from a point, then materializes in a form, a notion of reality. Reality defines us but we are not characterized by it, what makes us unique is our imagination and creative ability, that’s why my artistic theme has varied artistic approaches, and the link between real and imaginary is the raw material and the relief applied on evenness of the canvas. Creation is a delirium of the imaginary matter: Flemish reality combined with the physical substance of imaginary fantastic ideas. “(RIFAS, Diana Loredana Pantea)
