Adela Trifan

Duality, asleep and awake

Duality, asleep and awake

Material: Oil on canvas
Size: 81 x 100 cm

The artwork is part of the series called "Duality". This is a series of portraits of oil on canvas exploring the subject's multifaceted personality and different states of spirit. Like Schrodingers's cat, the subject is permanently experiencing a multitude of states, but we see the side that we observe.
Adela is a figurative artist and illustrator living in Spain. She has been practicing art since a child, and studied art in educational environments for 7 years. Adela moved from Romania to Canada as a young adult, where she studied Multimedia Design in Montreal at the IADT College and Visual Studies for one year at the University of Toronto. Later on she became a Canadian citizen. Adela has 17+ years of experience in graphic and web design and continued to create art. She lived in 4 countries and traveled to 29 countries, immersing herself in different cultures that influenced her way of creating and changed her medium of expression. Adela has now slowed down and now lives in Spain and loves painting with oils, exploring the human figure and especially creating portraits that focus on expressions adding a hint of the feelings and soul behind the mask that is our face. Her mission is to send subtle messages through her artwork that awaken a connection in the spectator’s soul essence. She has participated in international group exhibitions in Spain, Uk, Italy and Greece.
