Doina’s background is architecture as a profession but the representation through drawing and painting was explored and studied from a very early age, manipulating the artistic language directly within her architectural presentations.
Inspired by her new location around Hampton Court, London, surrounded by powerfully inspiring settings, Doina resumed experimenting with her oil painting studies, by taking further Master Classes, exploring the landscape en plain air in the local area or during travels abroad, depicting the defining sense of a place.
The new collection explores capturing and encapsulating the transience of a moment. The artworks emanate a sense of Now while playing on memory with the feel of the Old Masters decanted through the layering of time, knowledge and progress, taking advantage of the latest developments in technology and presentation, the sharpness of observation with undertones of a compression of historic techniques. Capturing the illusion of movement simultaneously surrounding the subject, as a dimension of the sublime, emphasised by the light changes. Each “frame” is a summary of a longer time span compressed on the canvas.
