Strands, Threads, Metabolic Meditations
On her current exhibit, Irina had this to say:
“My current abstractions are sensory mappings of the energy I feel around me. It is the energy between things as well as the energy of things. I paint directly, intuitively, what I am experiencing subconsciously as well as consciously. I’ll think about atoms, fish, wind, patterns of gas in the universe, the smell of the ocean. It is a dance between intent and random action. It is an exploration of our primordial language of shape, color, and rhythm that has evolved in us since we were single cell organisms. Painting brings me closer to my center and to what grounds me in the world. It’s how I celebrate being alive on this planet, ”
Irina Alimanestianu, grew up and lived around the world with her Romanian parents as they fled Soviet Communism. She lived in New York, France, and Switzerland. Her dear friend Maribel Alvarez says this gave Irina, “a sense of collective world history and cultivated an interest in the shared human condition.” A subject that still interests her to this day.
Irina Alimanestianu holds a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree from NYU, a Master’s of Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate University, and an MBA from Columbia University. Her work and writings have been featured in numerous art and artists publications.
Additionally, she was recently selected for the Parrish Art Museum triennial show “Artist Choose Artists, 2019” in Water Mill, NY.
