Codruța Cernea uses painting as the ideal medium to exercise possibilities and to reveal hidden aspects of her own existence.
Her works have a profound meditative atmosphere and often capture private moments, reflecting the subterranean feeling of solitude increasingly present in the contemporary human experience.
The observer’s viewpoint, nostalgic scenarios about the future, the individual experience as a subtle mirror of collective transformations, the landscape, human nature with its contradictory emotional needs are some of the themes explored by the artist in her distinct and ever-changing pictorial universe.
Born in 1979 in Târgu-Mureș, she is currently living in Bucharest. In 2010, she got her MA in Painting from the National University of Arts in Bucharest. Her works have been exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions and are included in public and private art collections.
