INSIGHTS - Insights. On the one hand, the new paintings and wall objects by Anamaria Avram show the characteristics typical for her: a handwriting that comes from the tradition of figurativeness formulated in detail; hyperrealistic and microscopically exact - and above all, they are a visual adventure for the viewer. On the other hand, there are coarse, relief-like raised, abstract color sections that pile up the color material as if spatulaed. Anamaria Avram is able to harmoniously and coherently combine both in a very small space and even on small formats.

In the show INSIGHTS, painting presents itself extended to the object. Oil on canvas is sensitively complemented with textiles, cement, and mixed textures.  In an architectural manner, the parts of the work are superimposed, concealed, combined, or inserted into one another. The contrasting materials, such as the emphatically soft, velvety fabric and the cold hardness of the cement, each deepen the sensual effect and give the utopias of the painted pictorial worlds different effects and perspectives.

INSIGHTS are glimpses into symbolic interior worlds, into nested, partly hidden fragments of space and enchanting interiors. The places remain ambivalent: are they abandoned - or in expectation? Is one inside or outside? In a love nest or at a crime scene? Even the only living creatures in these settings, cats and flowers, blend into the symbolic world and reveal nothing.

Anamaria Avram's closeness to the romantically mysterious and surreally absurd is wonderfully timeless and entirely devoid of the last references of an elucidation. This is a great pleasure and an ever new aesthetic experience.
