Artist Statement

I am a city person. Too often I pass buildings without thinking.

But they hide stories, biographies, and famous architectural concepts. That is why our eyes wander restlessly in search of the unusual and the majestic, as in the case of  Berlin Dome or, on the contrary, the everyday but revolutionary architecture of the 1920s and 1930, meant to satisfy the hunger for affordable living space, as in the case of the Wohnstadt Carl Legien. The only thing that is even more stimulating than the discovery of architectural ideas is the search for the right perspective. This is often times an imaginary perspective which can render a plausible and more nuanced image to the viewer.

Tatiana Arsénie was born in Romania and became a dentist before emigrating to Berlin, Germany; she now works full time as an artist. Her training includes techniques in printing, Byzantine art techniques, drawing and painting. Tatiana was part of numerous individual and group exhibitions. She is the author of two books.
