Hortensia Mi Kafchin (b. 1986, Gala?i, Romania, as Mihu? Bo?cu Kafchin) practices a surreal, narrative figuration through the lens of many personal transitions: where east becomes west; where science becomes spirituality; where man becomes woman. Throughout their numerous installations in museums and galleries worldwide, Kafchin immerses the viewer into hir world through paint, clay, and plaster. Mysteries of chance and not-knowingness suspend belief and open gateways to alternate worlds.
