"Cristina Ivascu (1986, Timisoara, Romania) is a Fashion and Beauty Photographer. By choosing mainly formal solutions, Ivascu tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way. She also likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work.
Her photos are based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. With a conceptual approach, she tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations.
Her works never shows the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, she tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
Her works directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context."
