Raluca Andreea Hartea (Bucarest 1985), a visual artist, lives and works between Milano and Roma.
Attended the New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, NABA (2007-2010), and the Institute of Analogical Psychology and Dynamic Hypnosis, CID_CNV (2009- 2011).
Her fascination with human being leads her to explore the inner universe as a way of exploring the outer world. Through her work she investigates the meaning of subjectivity in the relation between the art work’s meaning and the emotive perception of the viewer, trying to connect cognitive psychology and biology of perception, emotion, and empathy. Through the content’s shape and color, she leads the subconscious and the feelings of the viewer up to face basic instincts as attraction and refusal.
