“Iconography sometimes brought me in balance between good and evil. On one side – the chaos, the other – the order, but what is good and bad, who can tell me what order there is chaos and chaos in order …? Still I do not know, but look for the answer and I express in painting. I am lucky that I can put it this way.”  – Stefania Nistoreanu.
