Landscapes: what I do keep wondering about is whether the artist takes control or nature makes him servant. The simplicity of these works by Oana Cosug makes them in any event enchanting. It seems as if no system has been used to select and arrange the flowers and the grass. With simple and powerful brush strokes she acts as a competitive creator of an overlapping world: as if beautiful captured childhood memories of summer days gone by whisper in your ear that anything is possible.The stunning warm red of the book, a contemporary drawning of the contours of kids on their back or the glassy white floral dust that swirls up and down…yes, she takes control.
