Constantina Seracin Interview, Elusive Unreality, February 2023 Bad Tölz
At the beginning of the 20th century, two creative currents emerged that questioned conventional standards and sought to escape everyday reality – abstract art and surrealism. Abstract art wanted to distance itself from traditional art, while surrealist art wanted to escape rational thought. Both, then, were striving for a common goal: to break free from familiar norms.
When most people think of painting, they probably imagine images that realistically depict the world around us. But what if we looked at things through a different lens – literally and figuratively? This is where abstract and surrealist painting comes in. Abstract painting can be defined as an image that represents a concept or feeling rather than reality. It often uses shapes, colors and textures to evoke a feeling in the viewer. Surrealism goes a step further by incorporating elements of the unreal or impossible into otherwise normal scenes.
All three artists in this group show prove how experimenting with genres can be a great way to express yourself creatively and take the viewer on an inspirational journey into unreality.
“To practice unreality is the hardest and most essential task for an artist” – quote by Lovis Corinth.

Victor Hagea creates artwork with the punch of a drama in three acts. In his works we look behind the scenes of a mythical and ancient production. The surrealistic works give rise to a new dimension of painting that transcends any physicality and will leave any viewer in awe.
In the work of artist Andrea Donner, the viewer will find abstract forms with inspirational color gradients. With a great enthusiasm, the artist uses any painting techniques and materials such as ash, lime, earth, wax and combines everything together to create unique works of art.
Feminine and graceful appear to us the female figures in the works of Constantina Seracin from. The artist is passionate about depicting the diversity of women in her art. Thanks to her modern painting style, her “Cleopatra” no longer seems so dusty and distant, but highly emancipated and contemporary.
