Valentina Brostean have always had an eye for the strange beauty in the grotesque of life, this appreciation is now very evident in the work she is creating. Inspired by the relationship between dreams, natural world and the emptiness of consumer culture, between safe childhood playing to everyday marks of reality she bring and creates a new type of creatures in her imaginary world. Her body of work is built of melancholy interaction between man-made status symbols and frozen moments of the utopian childhood memories. Strongly focused on figurative narration her characters simply reflects us, modern society without its masks, without the fake presentations that makes us acceptable to whatever group we are part of. Yet the only place where we are truly revealed the way we are, is from the inside. If the viewer examine her work closely, they might come to the realization that her creatures are really kind of self portraits, set in a fantastical landscape of imaginary world which echoes of her own. A bitter, yet sweetly coated prescription for modern life.
