Galateea Contemporary Art
has the pleasure to invite you and your friends on Thursday,May 17th, 2018, 7 p.m., to join us at the opening of the exhibition
featuring works by ceramist
of Targu Mures.
RAKU – for me, this kind of thermal treatment in ceramics is a real provocation ... despite the fact that I use an electronically controlled firing technique, the inevitable, the haphazard always happens, and the surprise could be good or disastrous. The whole process is like an unrepeatable show (one can never duplicate a ceramic art object and make it look identical) and this is why it is so beautiful, provoking and fascinating, and after all, in the end, we all have a tendency to create one of a kind artwork.
Like any artist, I'm concerned about major and minor issues alike. I call them obsessions, and I can say I have two such obsessions. One of them would be the major idea of the duality of life. Dualities follow us all the time: beneficial vs evil, angelic vs. demonic, good vs bad, pacifism vs. war, truth vs lie to list just a few of them.
My other obsession, which has its origins even in childhood, is related to the idea of cube or enigmatic closed boxes, creating mystery and desire for discovery. The box may be a pleasant surprise or as unpleasant ... The moment "first vista" of a box or a pack is full of mystery / surprise. This is the moment I want to actually immortalize in my works. Opening the box melts the mirage, even if what you find inside is good or bad .... A title like "Traps" is a target for decrypting what I want to say.
The exhibition can be visited during the period
May 17 – June 16, 2018.
