Miss C creates collage-like paintings that draw on such European Modernist trends as Naïve Art, Cubism, and Surrealism. Using oil and acrylic paint, and at times collage, she composes complex narrative scenes that gravitate toward themes of love and desire. Miss C is a keen student of psychology. Her work strives to address the human condition and the impact of history and social conventions on the mind, spirit, and behavior. Works such as Genesis and Denial aspire to express what lies beneath the surface of appearance. The emotions she captures in her paintings range from love to lust and from joy to sadness.
Miss C is a self-taught artist who has always painted. Born in a small Romanian village, she had little choice but to support herself by other means. She studied and worked as a journalist in Bucharest, before relocating to America and eventually settled in New York City, where she is finally able to dedicate herself to art full-time.
