CRITICAL REVIEW


          As a distinctive figure in the Romanian contemporary feminine visual poetics, the artist Victoria Zidaru contemplates in her  elaborate creations the force of a circular time, of forgiveness, of rebirth and becoming, of living in balance with nature and God.  No matter if it is about her sculpture, painting, instalment or fashion design, her art is inspired by the religious canons and it  expresses an intimate perspective of the revelatory type inspiration. The artist is placed by theorists in the Neo-orthodox movement  of Romanian fine arts, among creators like Horia Bernea, George Apostu, Marian Zidaru or Ovidiu Maitec. Through modesty and  publicly embracing a simple serenity, through the calm and contemplative attitude, qualities mirrored in her creation, Victoria Zidaru  represents an artistic profile completely opposed to the West European inspired feminism. Her academic training and the recourse to the human imagination’s resources by using archetypal visual structures are creatively intertwined with a genuine thirst to rediscover the shape through embedding popular craft in the approached technical and symbolic repertoire.
