Barbara Peonia’s Universe
It is not common to meet artists capable of transcending matter to the point of making it aware and participating in their very Essence. Time freezes in surreal worlds full of meaning, which are layered in symbols that echo quantum symmetries and cause poetic effects, not lacking in profound emotions.
