There is an expressive world, with free association to mythology, the Tarot and matters of nature seen the work of Manuela Zervudachi.
I first saw her bronze forms in Paris and have been haunted since.
Along with the objects, Manuela creates visual scenarios of organic forms,
drawn from childhood memories and spirited journeys.
These sketches become functional pieces such as torcheres, furniture, sconces and custom commissions.
Manuela’s exhibit, out of the blue,
sculptures, mobiles, luminaires, and bas reliefs, is currently on exposition at Galerie Dutko.
Manuela has recently collaborated with Annoushka Ducas
to create a hard to resist collection of exquisite jewelry, Manuela.
Enjoy the Good Company of Manuela Zervudachi.
