In the period 12 June – 17 June 2018, Senso Art Gallery participated in the Paper Positions International Art Fair from Basel, Switzerland, a large-scale cultural project. Hosted by Ackermannshof, a splendid building complex dating from the 13th century, the event was held during Art Basel Week, the time of the year when the picturesque city from the banks of the Rhine vibrates to the rhythm of art and tallies the greatest number of visitors.
Senso Gallery chose to represent Romania in this prestigious manifestation with the works of Ana Stefania Andronic BUZU, from the #fast food cycle, which creations propose a complex decorativism, impregnated by symbols and graphic suggestions.They had already been faced with the demands of the European audience, enjoying extraordinary success, from the very first days of the artist’s personal exhibition, organized by Senso in the period 4-31 January 2018, at Five Plus Art Gallery in Vienna, Austria. On this occasion, the art album #fast food – Ana Stefania Andronic BUZU was also presented, a volume containing works of the artist, edited by FILDAS Art in English and German.
“Ana Stefania Andronic is a graphic designer who has carefully evaded the temptations of contemplative life, which are opposed to her open temperament and to the exuberant creative energy she possesses; she has blended, just like the young people from the generation she represents, in the trepidations and the jamming animation of active life, whose prompts she has come to decipher so well, that she accepts them with an interest freed of any stiffness, with good-humour, detachment, and humour” – Doina Pauleanu, critic and Doctor of Art History, manager of the Constanta Art Museum.
