There are very few secrets left untold by Ecaterina Vrana. Her works are inseparable from her intimate biography, and her testimonies act as transcriptions of the things she saw, did, or heard. Instead of overwhelming the viewer with her private life details, her paintings develop a dense imaginary space where her personal experiences open into an emotional or affective dimension. Her characters, both human and animal, live in an uncanny symbiosis in which new relations between body and language, the sensible and the verbal are explored. Along her personal mythology and archetypal imagery, the objects and the scenes in which her characters appear become vessels of feelings and atmospheres which make life worth living and, at times, unbearable. Complicating the act of seeing through allegorical extremism, the unconscious, sexual desires, and trauma, is a playful attempt to escape an individuated and guilt-sensitized interiority. Ecaterina Vrana daringly reveals iconic images of an unending recursion to a childhood care-free abandon.
