At first sight, the dialectical path from feminine art with masculine means, which crossed through feminine art with feminine means and finally reached feminist art with feminist means, constitutes a complete and perfectly completed trajectory, from (self) mystification, by partial demystification towards integral demystification and subsequent instrumentalization. But the history of art never has an end (be it happy or unhappy), as it always invites, wonderfully, to relaunch. The evolution of Codruța Cernea is exemplary for this tacit feminine liberation from the noisy feminist movement, a freedom from the pseudo-liberties brought by the cynical-critical distancing of the previous generation, trapped in a sterile demystification, whose consequences were, among others, a break-up with painting for most of those who had practiced it and brought it to the limelight of feminism, where it wasn’t much room for canvases and the act of painting itself.   Erwin Kessler – Emophoria, An Invincible Summer
