A restless girl was anxiously looking for distant and elusive goals. And yet this stubborn daughter of Macedonia through obstacles and ups and downs through calm and turbulent days managed to gain a very rich load of experiences and now with a cosmopolitan physiognomy managed to discover her way in the magical space of artistic creation.
She joined this seductive world and with patience and perseverance found that she has her own symbolic language that constantly shapes her personal plastic antidote, drawing the basic aesthetic rules: form, balance, height and their multiple alternations. Della Rounick managed to incorporate these basic rules of plasticity, in parallel with her own aesthetic codes, into her works and to subtly present her own artistic proposals that transform her personal imaginary landscape into material. Besides, the clear influence of the cultures that she experienced and the special Aegean landscape that she lives, determined the forms and forms of her sculptural compositions that refer to multiple artistic metaphors and interpretations of her individual semiology and her genuine artistic sense.
