Critical Review:
Irina Filip overpassed the phase of discovery and capitalization of traditions. She appeals to the sources of the popular art, but from the position of an original concept, the result of plastic culture and the temperament which has forced her to individualize everything that seems of great circulation. The works refer more to the spiritual components of the popular art. Being in contact with the most modern achievements of ceramics, porcelain and faience, she tries to tear away from the poetics of representation, passing to an innovative phase of creation.
