The simple thought is the subtle presence of light in darkness.
The philosophical thought permeates and occupies me in the concept of the realization of the work. I work with fluorescent colors and pigments to create a universe of light and strong luminous color. I catch the breath of nature through subtle contrasts, raw colors that are captured by modulated matter, an alchemy that transforms the materializations.

The works offers a code with which I prohibit or limit the ardent passions, revelations as the transmission of light, before solutions and analyzes that lead us on unknown paths, guided by free will, rooted in the plans of the universe of creations who poses his own ideals.

What is my light?

“Die einfache Gedanke ist die feine Presenz des Lichtes in Dunkelheit.
Die Philosophische Gedanke durchdringt und beschäftigt mich in das Konzept der Realisierung des Werkes. Ich arbeite mit fluoresziende Farben und Pigmenten um ein Universum des Lichtes und starke leuchtende Farbe zu erzeugen. Ich fange der Atem der Natur durch subtile Kontraste, rohe Farben, die durch modulierter Materie erfasst wird, einer Alchemie, die die Materialisierungen umwandelt.

Die Werke bietet einen Code, mit dem ich Verbote oder Grenzen in der glühende Leidenschaften, Offenbarungen als Transmission des Lichtes, vor Lösungen und Analysen, die uns auf unbekannte Wege lenken, die vom freien Willen geführt wird, verwurzelt in den Plänen des Universums der Kreationen, der eigenen Ideale stellt.
Was ist mein Licht?”

“Gândul meu simplu este prezența subtilă a luminii în întuneric.
Ideea filozofică mă pătrunde, mă preocupă în conceptul de realizare a operei. Lucrez cu culori și pigmenți fluorescenți pentru a crea un univers de lumină și culoare puternică. Prind suflul naturii prin contraste subtile, culori brute care sunt captate de materia modulată, o alchimie care transformă rezultatele.

Lucrările oferă un cod cu care interzicerile, limitele, pasiunile înflăcărate, dezvăluirile din transmiterea luminii, înainte de soluții și analize care ne conduc pe căi necunoscute, ghidate de liberul arbitru, înrădăcinate în planurile universului creațiilor, își propune idealuri proprii.
Care este lumina mea? A Ta?”

“Hanging Garden” by Anca-Sonia, painter, sculptor, Founder and artistic and educational director of the anca-sonia Superior Academy of Fine Arts (Cote D Azur France)www.anca-sonia.com

“Nicoleta Jutka’s paintings are a show dedicated to the light and contrast of color through which the artist launches invitations to contemplation.
A universe in which the breath of nature is captured by subtle contrasts, raw colors, modeled and modulated materials, an alchemy that the artist masteres and leads towards perfect materializations.
Nicole Jutka orchestrates compositions in a original manner and with the frankness and ingenuity of a pure artist but also with the disvolution and artistic interceptional enthusiasm, creating plastic narratives in which fulfillment and joy are the attributes and integrative elements of the work .
Where nightlandscapes are revealed, suggestions are obtained using a range of cool colors, colors that replace the night’s grays so the lights become cries of complementary modulated by color gestures that become cries .. and all of a sudden we are surprised by the audacity of her creation that proposes a unique plastic language, enthusiastic and effervescent. Night landscapes bring the lights of hope and confidence that they penetrate and direct, and the darkness thus overcome gives us states of contentment, fulfillments of partakers in the act of creation.
It’s just like when we reach a happy peak in our lives, everyday, artistic, emotional.
That’s why each composition breathes and invites us to discover and why not, to discover our finest subtleties.
The approach takes you to think of the clarobscuro of the great masters narrated in a modern language, because we have the current world in progress.
If there is a vocation of messenger of art, if we can say that a painting or sculpture offers a key with which we can detect prohibitions or limits by which to descend passionate incandescents, thenwe are faced with revelations offered by Nicoleta Jutka’s creations, solutions and analyses that lead us down unknown paths in which free will will lead each of us, enduring by the plans of the universes of her works on the path of her own ideals.

Nicole Jutkas Gemälde sind eine dem Licht- und Farbkontrast gewidmete Vorführung, durch die die Künstlerin zur Kontemplation einlädt.
Ein Universum, in dem der Atem der Natur durch subtile Kontraste, rohe Farben, modellierter und modulierter Materie erfasst wird, einer Alchemie, die die Künstlerin beherrscht und in vollkommene Materialisierungen umwandelt.
Nicoleta Jutka orchestriert die Kompositionen auf originelle Weise und mit der Offenheit und dem Ideenreichtum eines puren Künstlers, aber auch mit der Leichtigkeit und Begeisterung eines stolzen Künstlers, und schafft plastische Erzählungen, in denen Erfüllung und Freude die Attribute und integrativen Elemente des Werks sind.
Wo sie Nachtlandschaften offenbart, werden Hinweise durch die Verwendung von kalten Farben, die das Nachtgrau ersetzen, dargestellt. So werden die Lichter zu Schreien der Gegensätze, die durch Farbgesten moduliert werden… und plötzlich werden wir von der Kühnheit ihrer Kreation, die eine einzigartige, enthusiastische und sprudelnde plastische Sprache vorschlägt, überrascht. Die Nachtlandschaften bringen das Licht der Hoffnung und des Vertrauens, sie sind eindringlich, und die so überwundene Dunkelheit bietet uns ein Gefühl der Dankbarkeit und die Erfüllung, Teilnehmer am Schöpfungsakt zu sein. Es ist wie wenn wir einen glücklichen Höhepunkt in unserem täglichen, künstlerischen, emotionalen Leben erreichen.
Deshalb hat man den Eindruck, dass jedes Gemälde atmet und, warum nicht, uns dazu einlädt die feinsten Details zu entdecken. Der Ansatz regt einen dazu an, an die Licht-Dunkelheit-Technik der großen Meister zu denken, welche jedoch in einer modernen Sprache erzählt wird, weil nun die aktuelle Welt dargestellt wird.
Wenn es eine Berufung als Botschafter der Kunst gibt, wenn wir sagen können, dass ein Gemälde oder eine Skulptur einen Code bietet, mit dem wir Verbote oder Grenzen oder glühende Leidenschaft erkennen können, dann stehen wir vor Offenbarungen, die Nicoleta Jutkas Werke bieten. Wir stehen vor Lösungen und Analysen, die uns auf unbekannte Wege lenken, auf denen jeder von uns vom freien Willen geführt wird, verwurzelt in den Plänen des Universums ihrer Kreationen, der eigenen Ideale.

Picturile Nicoletei Jutka sunt un spectacol închinat luminii și contrastului de culoare prin care artista lansează invitații la contemplație .
Un univers în care respirația naturii este surprinsă prin contraste subtile , culori crude , materii modelate și modulate,o alchimie pe care artista o stăpânește și o conduce înspre materializări desăvârșite .
Nicole Jutka orchestreaza compozitiile într-o
manieră originală și cu franchețea și ingenuitatea unui artist pur dar și cu dezinvoltura și entuziasmul interceptiv artistic, creând narații plastice în care împlinirea și bucuria sunt atributele și elementele integratore al operei .
Acolo unde devoalează peisaje de noapte , sugestiile sunt obținute folosind o gamă de culorile reci, culori care înlocuiesc griurile nopții astfel luminile devin strigăte ale complementarelor modulate prin gesturi de culoare care devin strigăte ..și dintr-o dată suntem surprinși de îndrăzneala creatiei ei care propune un limbaj plastic inedit , entuziast și efervescent. Peisajele de noapte aduc luminile speranței și ale încrederii pe care l pătrunde și îl dirijează, și întunericul astfel biruit ne oferă stări de mulțumire, împliniri de părtași la actul creației .Este exact ca atunci când atingem un apogeu fericit în viața noastră, cotidiană, artistică, emoțională. De aceea fiecare compoziție respiră și ne invită să descoperim și de ce nu , să ne descoperim cele mai fine subtilități. Demersul te duce cu gândul la clarobscurul marilor maeștrii povestit Intr un limbaj modern , pentru că avem în desfășurare lumea actuală.
Dacă există vocația de mesager al artei, dacă putem spune că o pictură sau o sculptură oferă o cheie cu care putem detecta interziceri sau limite prin care să descstusăm incandescențe pasionale, atuncisuntem în fața unor revelații oferite de creațiile Nicoletei Jutka , rezolvări și analize care ne conduc pe cărări necunoscute in care liberul arbitru ne va conduce pe fiecare dintre noi, înrâuriți de planurile universurilor operelor ei pe calea propriilor idealuri.”

„Light penetrates  darkness” by
Curator Peter Marcovic (Slovakia | Kosice)

Limited selection from the art production of the painter, Nicoleta Jutka, represents the works of art produced mainly in the period of last two years. Her paintings convey two key themes that feature her objectives. The selected collection contains specifically tuned landscape painting as well as a series of portrays of young people, the painter’s prevailing theme.

Nicoleta Jutka presents her art work and creative concept under the title Light that Penetrates Darkness. The title indicates a symbolic perception of the fundamental aspect used by the artist. Jutka creates varicolored and lively perspective on society characterized mainly by coloristically and expressively viewed portraits. The author comes from Romania but lives and works in Germany. When she had moved to Germany, she experienced a change of cultural identity and transition to a new cultural environment. Her art work conveys the process of reconciling her values with new cultural challenges and different motions. Her new life situation generates signals for focused observation and depiction of this sensitive topic of her life that has, to a great extent, became a premise for defining her scope of interest in intense searching of environment and its cultural modification and differentiation. She strives to find identifying and integrating options in diverse situations. She acknowledges there is no unifying cultural mode. Thus, she is sensitive and responsive to perception and manifestation of different cultural contexts. 

First of all, she looks for common, essential human values and identifying inner spiritual light in a human being.

The change of environment and a fundamental conversion of the cultural context represent a substantial moment in searching for identity and integrating factors in an ambiguous existence. She assumes there is one aspect that rules over various cultural and ethnical differences, namely a common human approach represented by search of every human being for individual responsibility in a common interconnected world in which we live. 

Nicoleta Jutka’s project is mainly about search for light in a human being. Radiation of an inner world and observation of world’s manifoldness in a coloristically accented image of a human being gives us an indication of her notion and perception of multifaceted social environment and different cultural contexts. Symbolically perceived inner light of the paintings, contained in luminescence element in a paint pigment, indicates her vision to depict the fight between light and darkness of the (exhibition) premises or, in figurative level, the fight with philosophical and mental darkness. Light emission and perception of depicted world in profuse coloristic perspective indicates Jutka’s general program aspect. Artistically, Jutka is genuine Expressive artist; her art work manifests a strong art diction following artist’s Neo-Expressive concept. Hers work is absolutely new. 

Similar expressive lineage could be, quite justifiably, identified as one of the typical features of new painting. By her art perception and by her artistic character she acknowledges her connection to significant expressionist new tradition. Jutka works with a significant coloristic onset, fluorescent references and art sentiment are also to be observed. Vibrant coloristic expression, hedonistic, “barbarically” intense, even exaggerated coloristic art forms, and distinctive visible emotional experience from working with pigment, represent a key value of her artistic expression. 
Unnaturalistic, non-descriptive art model tends towards forming a simplified expression, an art form that is freed from art recital limiting details. 

The artist’s neo-expressive art work is two faceted – it aims on landscape and portrait. In landscape, she stresses the importance of a detail, sketched in free expressive form. She usually focuses on dominating robustly, even illustratively conceived floral motif or similarly, loosely sketched tree motif. A very interesting deviation from this artistic lineage is a large format landscape painting depicting trees. It consists of eight parts and is made in a coloristically “silenced” form with unique application of optical, even atmospherically felt reflections of light and tree lines portrayed in reflection on a water surface. 

In the main series the artist created distinctively expressive portraits of young people. Stylized paintings of heads with reduced depiction of physiognomy enable significantly exposed onset of the coloristic expressions of sadness. Apparently, widely open eyes and highlighted lips create symbolized image of inner man, which is hidden behind a colorful fire that lights the faces. Inner light, sadness, wondering or skepticism, all that is possibly present in this interpretation. Silent glare cannot be overlooked and it brings an element of pondering and pause into Jutka’s hedonistic painting. 

Inner light is what we search for and anticipate in a human being. It can come in a form of happiness or sadness, yet once we finally experience these feelings, we come to understanding. Colorful multicultural saturated reality of the portraits seemingly enters into an inner dialog stating questions about myself to myself. She’ work is absolutely new”
