Anca Irina Lefter: NAG – Portal – Immersive Art Experience & Science – October/November 2019, InterContinental Hotel
In 2018 ARTIST ANCA IRINA LEFTER launched the PORTAL concept, an artistic concept with the purpose to make people reconnect with their own nature and inner world via painting, music, fashion, science and by that, to respect the world and nature around because they are a part of it.
The PORTAL is created by 5 elements of nature: AIR, EARTH, FIRE, WATER and MAGNETISM. PORTAL- Immersive Art Experience & Science combines the 10 paintings that show spirals of different colors used to build 5 portals representing: air, earth, fire, water and magnetism all representing the force of life and of the human relations.
The unicity and novelty of the Artist work is that she used on her works the house paint Benjamin Moore to which she added a Nano plasmatic technology from Plasma Romania, the visitors being able to feel the energy of the plasma while entering the PORTAL.
“The spirals make people to feel attracted in the painting, like in a tunnel. They focus on these geometric forms, on the colors and they will feel in a different state, more receptive, opening a door (The Portal).”– says ANCA IRINA LEFTER.
On NAG (11th of October 2019) the participants were encouraged to paint on a dedicated canvas using Benjamin Moore paint in order to help them to synthetized all their feelings and reflections through their own art after visualizing the exhibition.
Renaissance Art Gallery was number 49 on Bucharest NAG map and the exhibition was on display at InterContinental Hotel Bucharest.
69 museums, art galleries, foreign cultural centres, art hubs and alternative spaces will open their gates within the 13 edition of the White Night of the Art Galleries- NAG 2019 in Bucharest today, October 11.
