Mutations :


Working with reality as matter, Andreea Talpeanu's research subjects are deeply rooted in hypermodernism and therefore in the transformation of the world today. The artist creates hybrid works with vestiges, which are contemporary reflections. Thus it generates new bodies or synthetic materials for an organic result.

His works presented in several series, "Coagulations, Nudes Hypermodernes, Hyperlinks", etc ... do not seek aesthetics, but the very essence of the fusion of things, whether they are material or immaterial. His plastic approach is not an interpretation of a contemporary subject and its metaphor, but the very search for the definition of what the bond means in today's society.
