Presentation Critical Exposition

Spring înaintemergatorului creation of the Romanian avant-garde Hans Mattis-Teutsh in terms of înlantuirii colors, abstract forms Spiral (period 1910 - 1923), the art of George Ostafi is a plastic version of philosophical thinking is close to abstract expressionism.

Just as the painter Nicolae Toniza note is the art of painting which translates sensations of color and aesthetics emotiunea born in contopirea them. The artist has a color but the sincerity and clarity sun. It causes the public to an opening to feelings and emotions intelectualizate; to smart new sense of peace to harmonize with what sensations to make us feel.

The works are a stylization eurhythmic. An art that is done to direct transcription of states inwards, opening the interior universe through pensulatie, graphic signs, which make up the image as a seismogram. It is a direction that tends towards the informal dramatic art which culminated in the painting gestuala-object universe.

Artist on canvas zugraveste states in compositions spiritually warm - cold to hot always dominant dynamic with interstitial closed in a harmonious color consecution primary, binary and tertiary. Confession is an optimistic soul decided to fraternize with his fellow.

Kubien Wladek space depths zugraveste human soul. It is another world, one dream, another high-density universe with a load of meanings through the outbreak of a central light or two installments in a duet or symmetrical. It is an art major symbols of the primordial elements. A disturbed area only sinuositatea play a grafism which seems to suggest the passage of time.

Kubien is a deeply cerebral artist who deduced from the nature that surrounds it essential, at which the impressed eyes. He play those files ready metamorphose into a new the score much more rich in significance.

Austeritatea the dominant color of ultramarin shades of blue and shades of orange-gold profile shows us an artist's creation came to artistic maturity. Works by overwhelming elegance in serene be viewed to include their multiple meanings.

Silence is silence depths deeply underwater, and is one of cosmic silence Endless a darkish space. Unlike the quiet, screaming like a puddle more open space. Pathways of grafismului games are more dense and the space is more vibrant. Yelled the trajectory is directed to the neant Echoes and his reverberatiile. Are installments of light is eternizeaza in an infinite space. Wladek's universe is a scenography of the heart and soul. The artist seems to interpret a plastic version of a musical passage by Jean Michel Jarre and others.
