In this group of symbolist landscapes, the artist explores the ways in which different color notes can act as chromatic keys to unlock memories and stimulate emotions. The clouds are more than just manifestations of the physical world we inhabit, moving forms in space made of vapor and air; they can also represent particular interior narratives, states of mind, and intangible music that the viewer may experience. – Linda Ganus Albulescu
