In the late 80s, Rodica was attracted to Metaphysical Painting
that enabled her to create unique interpretations of the
relationship between mind and matter. Giorgio de Chirico, Paul
Delvaux and Rene Magritte were like guides to her own soul
Rodica immigrated, alone and without support, to New York, USA in 1996. In spite of many
difficulties and complications, she managed to obtain an AAS degree
in Textile and Surface Design from the Fashion Institute of
Technology, New York, NY in 2002. She currently does freelance
In 1994, her Solo Show, "The Grail", organized by Goethe
Institute in Bucharest, received full media coverage in the press
and national television. Rodica recently participated in "A Feast of
Imagination’, an international exhibit organized by H R Giger Museum
in association with The Society for Art of Imagination, London, UK
at Galerie Museum HR Giger, Chateau St. Germain, Switzerland 2006.
Her painting "Walpurgisnacht" is being exhibited at the
prestigious The Mall Gallery, near Buckingham Palace in London, UK.
Rodica World, presented here as poetical pictographs, is a sui generis
travel into the metaphysical realm of ourselves. For her painted poems Rodica
employs symbols and metaphors for rendering l’incertitude et l’angoisse de
l’homme, and earthly human struggles compensated by a virtual triumph and escape.
