Tincuta Marin is an intriguing painter and sculptor with a spell-binding ability for fantastical and transhistorical storytelling. Driven by an abundant imagination, Marin synthesises different characters and stylistic references from Romanian folklore and ancient civilisations. She does so not in an expressively allegorical way, but rather in an inventive melange of elements and personages she finds fascinating, composed into scenes with a mystical allure. Marin is a syncretic storyteller that ropes us into her oneiric world to take on a nonlinear journey through imagination, craft, folklore, and art history.
