Ilona luca Decsi
Family photographs have given me enigmatic image, remembrance of the last century. My dream to realise an interesting idea, to paint beautiful ladies from the 20th century. Since then I have copied old brown photos applied them on handmade paper. Recently I have worked them with aquarell and tempera as well. I would like to paint the influence of this period and the atmosphere in my graphic series. In spite of I know,the language of the photo has moved on since then.
At the beginning of last century women were wearing beautiful dresses, full of lace and madeira. They had those elegant big hats, gloves, flowers, and rich carpet, drapery in the old photographs. The design of the twenties was extremely nice, clothes were outrageously pretty. In my graphique series I intend to show Birth, Marriage, and Poetic memory and Dream.
