Maria Cantare is an artist, who works in a variety of media.
By applying abstraction, she creates intense personal moments. Her works are saturated with obviousness, mental inertia and bad jokes.
The question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image.
By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, she makes works that can be seen as self-portraits.
Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky.
