MOLDOVAN'S abstract works are painted with acrylic and gold leaf. The reflective quality of metal leaf adds a luminous dimension to the composition. The earliest use of gold can be traced back to ancient Egyptian civilizations, and gold leaf is most commonly recognized as a major decorative element of illuminated religious manuscripts from the middle ages. Moldovan's traditional choice of medium has been strikingly reinterpreted in this contemporary fine art context. The initial impact is of a graphic pattern of reflective material floating on a deep background, while viewing the work up close reveals a complexity of layers as well as the traces of the artist's mark-making and the nuanced texture of the gold leaf applied by hand.



 

IRINA MOLDOVAN earned a BA from Weber State University in Utah in 2005. Her works have been exhibited in group exhibitions throughout the United States, including Infusion Gallery in Los Angeles, The Studio @ 620 in St Petersburg, and Art:Raw Gallery in NYC. She can be found in several public and private collections and is the recipient of numerous awards and honors. Parallel to studio work, she held positions as an art instructor for adults with disabilities and helped manage the Chihuly Collection during her time in St Petersburg. Moldovan was born in Isjum, Ukraine and currently lives in San Francisco.
