Eve and Adam

Gabriela AniteiBucharestRomania

2019Oil on canvas

100 x 98 cm

This artwork represents the biblical couple, Adam and Eve. Although they are still in the garden of Eden, they already find themselves constrained in the darkness generated by the serpent - multiplied, as one sin leads to another - which surrounds them with a net of thorns, keeping them in the out coming guilt and punishment for their capital sin. Eve dominates and crushes with her body and her guilt Adam, who is despaired realizing the capital mistake he made and the falling that follows. They are holding one another in a desperate embracing, conscious of their the doomed destiny which their disobedience brought upon them. The subject made me choose earthy colors for humans, as they are clay in the eyes of God, rotten green for serpents, as symbol of lethal perfidy and destruction, and black for the tragedy of the ancestral moment. For this painting I have opted in favor for painting knife instead of brushes, as I intended to give the painting as much substance consistency as possible. This painting is made with professional oil colors and fine turpentine.

Hello, I am a profesional painter, member of the Artist's Union from Romania. In my figurative creations I am drawn mostly to the impresionist and expresionist manner of representation. I also like very much the art of photography and I am trying to improve my skills in that domain, also. During the years, I had six personal exhibitions and many participations at group exhibitions. I also have works in private colections in Romania, SUA, Germany and Austria.
