Abstract

Analyzing the latest creations of sculptor Elena Stoinescu, this study confronts the sources of inspiration behind artistic creation and the final profile of her world of shapes in the works exhibited at the Art Gallery “Delta” in the exhibition suggestively entitled “Roots”.
It is about, on one hand, the peasant fabrics and about Romanian traditional rugs (as material, work technique, textures, stylistic aspects, colors and motifs), absorbed by the artist in her work, and on the other side about the range of impulses coming from the European modern tapestry, especially from the French.
The summary of means and techniques Elena Stoinescu is operating with, the suggestion of a message with “eco” accents, tradition upgrading , recovering the idea of harmony of the contemporary man with nature, with the environment, with the natural materials (wool, flax, hemp, leather .), which is transmitted through these works, are due to the artist ability to understand the spiritual horizon (the stylistic matrix) in which she was formed, her “roots”, and in the same time to her ability to tune with the benchmark names of Romanian culture: Blaga Bernea, Eliade, who boosted her horizon with new values, enriching it.
