The author about her work
Invitation to participate in this event I received from Zoltan Balog, “Inter-Art” Foundation Aiud vice-president. It was because I‘m IUOMA (International Union Of Mail Artist) member. Mail art is small format works, which may be sent by mail as a letter, but not as a package. Personally I rarely do small-format works. Therefore each time I need to “reduce” myself. That time I chose the collage technique. Painting was a little abstract, made on the sandpaper. It‘s like the land everywhere – even under the water. My words “Be ware of the artists they mix with all classes therefore they most dangerous” mean that the artists have forthright, childish and philosophical approach and expression of it you can not hide anywhere, blue spots in the painting – the water which is blood of earth, red blood is symbol of humanity in which also is water. So that’s how I’ve tried to reply to the topic. I didn‘t take a photograph of my work before sending it to the exhibition. Therefore I give the organizers version of it from the catalogue.
Therefore we can only invite you to come and take a look at these works at the United Nations Headquarters.
