VOGUE on Mona Ardeleanu and her work:

„Mona Ardeleanu knew she was a painter when she was a teenager. And in her application to study at the Academy of Fine Arts she wrote that she wanted her hands to do what her head imagined. Today she paints with a virtuosity that gives her enormous freedom and opens endless possibilities. Her motifs are objects composed of patterned and draped or pleated fabrics, ribbons, straps, rods and more. Some see this as a very particular form of almost old master painted still life. For Mona Ardeleanu, however, these objects are animated, that is bodies and characters. Their relation to the body arises from the very fabrics she paints, which are close to the body as a covering, as its second skin. KURO, the title of her work for the KÖNIG GALERIE edition at VOGUE refers to the world of kimonos. The work itself shows a richly ornamented textile object that is freed from all gravity and floats freely in space, but also refers to the human body with its delicate ribbed structure.”
