Subscribing to the genuine tradition of modern sculpture, Slavenca Petre integrates in the bronze volumes emotions and personal impressions. The artist melts in the bodies of her works contradictory effects, inspired by conflicting dialogues between traditional craftsmanship and the functional elegance of modern machinery. The recall of the profoundly archetypal message, typical for folk arts, is evoked both in synthetic elements and in the titles of the artist`s works.
