PAST EXHIBITIONCodruța Cernea 21 May - 26 June 2021
PARADISE OF LOST DESIRES is a series that began by simply observing what I draw repeatedly.
I hoped it will be like a deep calming exhalation that facilitates a more relaxed exploration. The landscape is always present, reflecting nostalgia of unfulfilled possibilities, but is also something that I’ve missed in the last year and I’ve transferred in real-time on canvas. In almost all the paintings, there are human profiles, like suspended stripes and contoured hands painted flat, combined in a simple, harmless and tender gestures. For me, they speak about essential emotional human needs, buried, postponed and that cannot be solved or replaced, no matter how well we curate our professional life, material possessions and lifestyle. – Codruța Cernea
PAST EXHIBITIONAndrei Gamarț 29 January - 20 March 2021
The Eclipse series is the result of the artist’s ample exploration of the relationship built between memory – which is an ongoing process of both the individual, as a unit, and humanity, as a collective being – and light, seen as the primary matter which continues to exist in a constant state of oblivion.
Past ExhibitionSaddo 2 September - 7 November 2020
In a very POP register, Saddo not only creates pieces on this subject, but a whole ambient. It’s something he truly likes, it’s a very simple instinct at first glance, to create pieces based on subjects that simply attract you: the contradictory mix of rawness, gangsta culture, but also poetry, status assertion, social issues that lots of communities are still dealing with, criminality and opulence. The art pieces in the series have the feeling of totems or cult objects, not in a magical sense, but in a very real and heartfelt fascination for the subject. Translated in Saddo’s stylistic trademark, you can clearly see the weight of this aesthetic, of the urban glam that stays hardcore because it’s hard to fake.
