Ileana Dana Marinescu

Of course, Ileana Dana Marinescu has humour; it adds to her inventiveness and tonicity, the ludic and manufacturing spirit with which she was endowed, but which she has cultivated with refinement and discretion; concomitantly, she is also a production designer for miniature sizes, fashion designer, creator of stage costumes, goldsmith, glass worker, metal smith, medallist, drawer, colourist; Of course, she has read Arghezi and has managed to create new forms and shapes of beauty from shards and fragments, from sumptuous and humble materials discarded or at hand, or from seemingly unfeasible combining textures, from forgotten or useless parts.
