Romanian fine-artist based in North Cornwall, Catalina-Maria Ungureanu is well-disciplined in painting, etching, lithography, screen-printing and collage, approaching each piece with a traditionalist respect, whilst also balancing it with contemporary experimentation. Her practice is informed by different sources, from literature, film and her own cultural background. Growing up in Romania resonates within her work, particularly the strong presence of religion and the phantom of the communist regime. The visual identity of Catalina’s practice carries the themes employed to a sense of parody and absurdism, exploring the uncanny and a state of visceral uncertainty that is aimed towards the viewer. Catalina is currently studying Fine Art at Falmouth University, UK.
