The 6 paintings presented in the exhibition are part of the personal collection of Professor Adela Ciobanu being the fruit of encouraging the patients to express their emotions and moods through art, color, and painting. The color palette chosen by the painters who made the 6 paintings is a vivid, optimistic, floral, but also abstract one, reflecting the joy of the remission of psychiatric pathology, and the recovery of the desire for life and beauty. The materials used to make the 6 paintings are from their own sources, independent of those provided by the hospital and its workshops.
