Pictor -Cornelia Tersanszki
Trǎiește și lucrează în Bistrița (Bistrița – Nasăud). A absolvit Institutul Politehnic din București (Facultatea de Automatică) și Școala Populară de Artă din Bistrița.
Arta pentru Cornelia Tersanszki este un dialog sensibil și intens cu universul unde trǎiește. Un univers pe care ȋl percepe ca pe o imagine a sacrului ȋn care fiecare componentǎ este proiecția unui reper spiritual. Picteazǎ pe sticlǎ ȋn culori vii, pure, ȋn care lumina se coaguleazǎ ȋn impresionante armonii cromatice. Naturile statice ne indica un artist preocupat de desen și rigoarea construcției plastice. O relație ȋntre spiritual și elementul realului. Ea conferǎ culorii un loc dominant ȋn comunicarea vizualǎ pe care o realizeazǎ. Un artist al participǎrii totale al permanentului mister al realitǎții, al materiei, al vieții. Prin picturǎ a dat frậu liber fanteziei, exprimậnd libertatea interioarǎ. Chiar și atunci cậnd par ȋndelung gậndite și elaborate, ele nu estompeazǎ efectul spontaneitǎții. Din lucrǎri rǎzbate ecoul liniilor geometrice perfecte care se pulverizeazǎ prin analize grafice și cromatice pentru a crea un ansamlu ȋnzestrat de reformulǎri, suprafețe colorate intens unde alterneazǎ forma angularǎ și voluptatea liniilor curbe. Un limbaj plastic modern care acordǎ prioritate vibrației luminoase a culorilor. Privind organizarea compoziționalǎ a lucrǎrilor, observǎm acea relație a formelor,dincolo de cea cromaticǎ, o armonie a contrariilor ȋn numele opticului.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT MY REVERSE GLASS PAINTING
I have this very strong belief, that a more luminescent reality lies upon the one we normally see. And a glimpse of that reality is kept in every one of my glass paintings….
I use the ancient technique of reverse painting.
I love glass because it has its own life, and, in a subtle way, it takes you inside the old time lores. The ink and the oil colours, mixed up with bronze, complete the sense of time, past and present together, as if each work opens a secret gate to another life…
When painting on the back of the glass, the first element painted is the first seen on the other side.
I use oil colours, bronze and ink.
In the begining I normally make a drawing on paper. I need the drawing to support my imagination, but, when drawing, I “see” all the picture I am going to paint, from the beginning to the end. Of course things may change during the process (they often do), but the general feeling / the emotion that inspired me remains.
The second step is to “put” the drawing on glass: I use black ink.
The third step (not compulsory) is to make accents with bronze or metal leaf – it depends.
Than I add layers of colour, mix them on my pallete or mix them directly on glass to achieve the profoundness I need.
As I was not prepared to explain the way I paint, I have only a few progress shots.
The back of the painting looks very different. Here is another example:
That’s all about the technique. The rest is vision, message, imagination and feeling.
