Artist Zara Tisma turns to art as a therapeutic escape; a form of meditation that helps her to declutter her mind and process emotions. Through her detailed drawings she explores the dialogue between nature and man-made environments, seeking to find a harmonious balance between both worlds. We speak about what inspired this exploration; how she overcomes challenges in her practice and how creativity affects her well-being.

Oneness: Anca F. Stefanescu

Oneness: Anca F. Stefanescu

Artist Anca Francesca Stefanescu interweaves the organic painting techniques of figurative art with digital geometric creations of abstract expressionism to depict the contrasts and polarities that exist in life. In her exploration of inner and outer realities, Anca invites the viewer to become a participator in the piece through their own perception. She shares how a tragic life event gave way to a peaceful acceptance of nature’s life cycle and led her to embrace oneness with herself. Anca also speaks of how the pandemic’s “pause” on normality provides an opportunity for humanity to redefine itself and to change paradigms that are no longer working.
