Florica Prevenda

Works    Bio



























Florica Prevenda, an established Romanian contemporary artist, presents a series of paintings “Somewhere in Time” which invites us to slow down the crazy pace of our current lives, to take refuge in nature and in a world that we can idealize.
Immersed in her childhood, Florica Prevenda creates a space filled with nostalgia and imbued with the sublime, drawing inspiration from the bucolic landscapes of the Romanian countryside.
Organic and raw structures, straddling figurative art and abstract art, generate images full of drama and textures such as this field of flowers displaying infinite nuances of color in the diffuse and shimmering light of an after -sunny midday.

1959 Born, Dor Marunt, Calarasi, Romania

Associate professor at the University of Arts, Bucharest (1993-1997)
