India ink on paper
29, 7 x 21 cm
Florin Mitroi's ink drawings on paper were mostly executed in the 1980–90s. Among classic erotic and nude studies, Atropos is represented as a dominant female figure often embracing Mitroi in a protective attitude. A recurrent subject in the artist’s work from 1974 until his death in 2002, the mythological goddess becomes here an allegory of the artist’s destiny, as well as an echo of his obsessions.
