Teodora Axente

Teodora Axente’s (b. 1984) painting is a lot of scenography, the construction of images starts from either classical poses, or, in most cases from unusual and strange situations, constructed by the artist herself. The characters painted in a manner that sends you to the seventeenth century classics are “accessorized” with various modern materials, such as tinfoil or plastic wrap. It is as if we are in a fantastic dressing room, placed in an uncertain time, and Teodora Axente’s characters are disguised in outfits that are more or less fancy, in a note often playful.
