Plurality of Expression
January 21 – February 10, 2017
Reception: Thursday, January 26, 2017 6-8 PM

Color is queen for Falcan Iulia-Lavinia, whose portraits of women defy the male gaze with stylistic invention. Born in Bucharest, Romania, Lavinia studied painting at the National University of Arts, earning both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree there. Painting on large canvases that match the height of her viewers, Lavinia draws inspiration from colors, people’s faces, and important events in her life. Large
walls are not immune to her touch either, as Lavinia also paints murals, glass, and found objects.  In fact, over the last ten years, she has established herself as one of the few muralist in Bucharest, developing a rare mural art business named Madonia Art.

Preferring acrylic for its persistent vibrancy, Lavinia conveys a complexity of feeling with simple, one or two-word titles. A number of her figures have sections of their bodies demarcated like stained glass. Others are defined by triangular patterns and whorls of color. Lavinia says that her paintings capture everyday events in her life, as if the people she meets are reflected back through her, transmitted onto canvas. This is the creative vision she seeks to share with the world. “I search every day for inspiration,” Lavinia says, “and I choose to be inspired by everything.”
