CRITICAL REVIEW


        The early talent ennobled by dedication, intelligence, refinement, faith and inspiration, invested in countless working hours, spectacularly blooms in the artist Mara Vîlceanu Breza’s works. The impressive power of the sculptor does not lie in physical autonomy, but rather in the conceptual flexibility of an innovative vision. Her sculptures target the dialogue with a perspectival time which envelops the human being in love and truth. Using a symbolic arsenal from the theological and mythological field, such as the angel’s wing - as a symbol of protection or the gate - as the sign of passing, the Christian conceptual approach that represents the basis of many of the artist’s works makes her belong to the Romanian group of artists inspired by Neo-Byzantine elements. The synthetic and elegant iconic hieratism has both an Egyptian origin, in works such as Beatrice or The Gate Keepers, and it also comes from the acquisition of Gothic inspired elements, being recognizable the artist’s preference for slender shapes and elongated proportions.
          As a founding member and secretary of the Bucharest Sculpture Branch since 2008 and organizer of The Small Sculpture Salon, Mara Vîlceanu Breza profoundly invests in the personal and collective sculptural projects.The early talent ennobled by dedication, intelligence, refinement, faith and inspiration, invested in countless working hours, spectacularly blooms in the artist Mara Vîlceanu Breza’s works.
