Beginning of the Universe

Searching for God

Emotional Intelligence

Self knowlege

   I am a plastic artist and a psychologist also.

   Born on 18 August, 1962 in Iasi, Romania.

”Artist Marinela Rusu comes from psychology, with psychoanalysis-related experiences, and the forms of her paintings are more molded, more conceptual, are forms that lead to abstractionism without being an abstractionism without form or separated by reality. Being a researcher, she inclines towards expressionism, appeals to essences, through an extraordinary symbolic charge, concerning the universe, feminity and masculinity.

We find symbols, such as the spiral, meander, the motive of bird or harp. Her paintings are a plea for the universe, which she explains on the basis of scientific elements. In the themes approached, reason is penetrated by sentiment, and rational "action" is wider than the sentimental one. But the feeling comes after that and loads the work, finishes it, makes sense. Its symbols range from private facts to the general, philosophical universe, and the themes are complemented by a philosophical interpretation. In fact, this is the purpose. The symbol sends to the origins, reminds us of them.”

Critic about M. Rusu's paintings:

”Marinela Rusu’s artistic creation is clearly an original, mental construction – and I greet her mind and her ability to innovate, to leave the usual patterns.
Her paintings bring us a plus of knowledge and freedom, and a plus of creative imagination. It is somehow, an atypical, original exhibition. This modification of the aesthetic paradigm – a successful experiment – makes her to stand out from the mundane, to cross in a transcendental dimension, where things are just ideal or possible.
Looking at theese paintings, I see a sidereal ballet, a movement on the surface, a verbiage in which occur the signs of time but also the signs of being. The search of self is the result of personal experience in the permanent dialogue with the universe. We can read many of Marinela Rusu’s paintings as a metaphor, ideal expression of a vast sky, which can be one of Ellada or of a Romanian space, where the flight is the metaphor of absolute freedom.” (Valentin Ciucă – one of the most wellknown art-critics in Romania).

 
Some words of the artist about this painting:
”I think that modern art is more than an exhibition of forms and colours. Above all these, we wait for a message, an idea, a call. My painting Searching for God is a symbol of self searching, of self awarness and gathers the mysteries of transcendence. The third eye, the clepsydra, the path of light which comes from above are all - in this painting - keys for interpretation. How to be read depends on everyone’s spiritual experiences. This search never ends because our inner and our hope and our imagination are infinite.” (Marinela Rusu, artist and psychologist).
