“Iconography sometimes brought me in balance between good and bad. On one side – the chaos, on the other – the order. But what is good and bad, who can tell me what order there lies in chaos and how chaos exists in order …? I still don’t know, but l’m looking for the answer and I express my search on canvas. I’m priviledged I can do that”  – Stefania Nistoreanu.
