CRITICAL REVIEW


        Alina Aldea explores different possibilities of creating art using methods specific to the contemporary framework of ideas and styles. She manages to generate new relational, interpretative contexts due to the dialogue established between the artefact and its immediate context of reception. The human anatomy (fragmentary, abstract, deconstructed, alone or together with a ready-made object functioning as a conceptual adjuvant) becomes the recurrent theme of an assumed iconography. She creates the series called The Chimeras (drawing) where the abstract, on one hand, and the equilibrium between transparency-opaqueness and the constant weight, on the other, excludes the descriptive, the revival of the organic.
