Originated in Botosani Anca Irinciuc (born in 1978) lives and works in Bucharest.
She has a Licence (2004) and a Master Degree (2007) at the National University of Art in Bucharest, Department of painting. She has been a member of the Union of Plastic Artists in Romania since 2005, the painting branch, in Bucharest. She had many personal exhibitions, under the careful observation of art critics.
Anca Irinciuc had personal painting displays in some of the art galleries in the country (in Bucharest, Iasi, Bacau, Bistrita, Medgidia, Piatra Neamt) but also abroad (Essen - Germany, Brussels - Belgium); she has also participated in a series of camps and artistic creation residences.
Since 2008 she got involved in different activities regarding the prevention and collapse of children in education by working with and among children, making use of certain structures of art in order to stimulate imagination.
Through her work, Anca Irinciuc shows us a social game open towards any participants, a dynamism of the characters, changing colours which rearrange and combine themselves in various plans, depicting meanings and perceptions in the viewer's eye. The majority of the proposed themes may be enriched by understanding these forms – man outside the realm of the ordinary.
" Interaction is represented, nowadays, by a giant social game. In this network, one can participate, function, become an integrant part, and even change things in a certain matter. I structure my program under the shape of one permanent research, trying to obtain a new understanding of reality.
Reality is not the same with the notion of ”nature”, art itself doesn’t fit into the limitations of nature. This program shifts my analysis towards the space where dreams are born, contributing, in a way, to the enrichment and expansion of possible interpretations.
I am looking for ways of breaking the barriers of the visual space, constant endeavors of seeing beyond ordinary reality. I want, I explore,
I demonstrate, and the object gradually expands, through intensive and coherent labor. I am trying to build elements of one reality that undergoes distortion and transformation. And I do that by imagining full shapes and conglomerates which base their frail existence on reality. The language of painting I have used throughout my interpretation is connected to the harsh reality of the present moment, more than in a dream or in a nightmare. A great part of my program can be improved only by understanding these shapes- spiritual man trespassing the boundaries of normality."
