Colinde la Manastirea Camarzani / Carols from Camarzani Monastery in Moldavia

Un gand bun de Sarbatori, o imagine din gradina catre voi...

my garden pond covered with snow... and some Christmas Carols who touched my soul and brought me happiness...I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do..
niste colinde minunate care mi-au inaltat sufletul si mi-au adus fericire ... Decembrie cu al sau Craciun care aduce pace, bucurie si liniste in casele noastre!

Sarbatori Fericite si un An Nou cu impliniri!! Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!

tatal meu, arhitect Augustin Presecan, de suflet... si de amintire...

Una dintre ultimele lui poze... eu asa il tin minte mai bine, cu barba... si-a lasat-o in ultimii ani stati la Moscova.

Se scrie acum o carte despre Cluj, despre arhitectii urbanisti care au contribuit la ceea ce este acum urbea noastra, se afla si el in ea, ma bucura... fac in continuare o mica paranteza catre un articol de ziar aparut dupa revolutie pentru a-i schita sumar figura, pentru cei care nu au apucat sa il cunoasca.. din pacate si eu prea putin am putut sa povestesc cu el, a murit cand aveam 8 ani, el 45... i-am simtit lipsa tot timpul, chiar daca il aveam si il am cu mine in inima si gand peste tot...
Mandrie a Tarii Motilor Arhitectul Augustin Presecan Exista oameni care desi au avut o viata relativ scurta, prin lucrarile si operele lor au reusit sa impuna posteritatii un respect deosebit fata de memoria, de numele lor, niciodata uitat. Un astfel de om a fost, fara tagada, arhitectul Augustin Presecan, om de certa valoare profesionala, creator al arhitecturii unor…

A place called Normality

Nowadays in Romania, when politicians are like hunting dogs (because we have the presidential elections), I found a special place. I found normality in a small province town called Turda. Today I visited Ratiu Foundation and I spoke to Indrei Ratiu (son of the memorable Romanian politician Ion Ratiu) about their activity. I found the same sane working atmosphere as in Soros Foundation fifteen years ago. I heard about some not-for profit things, values almost forgotten by our society in this hunger for survival or money: democracy, services for community and so on… I found there an inner space, peacefull and kept away from the noise of the town, a place where one can find culture, civilization and education. And what’s the most important, there are young people, students and volunteers who learn behaviours associated to the practice of democracy… Glad to see this in our own area! Good work and keep walking!

I thought about paths on water and this is the first drawing, from a new series which will follow "traces on water".

Checkout [ART]

I just come back from Austria where I had an exhibition in Graz. I had several discussions concerning art market with different artists and curators, what makes art rise in a community or a city… all the individual efforts are quite good, for instance there is now in Cluj a new cultural centre in an old brush factory, but without the implication of the government there aren’t many chances for a solid cultural and artistic movement or market. I found this article, sustaining the same idea, about Berlin and how the German government supports art and culture, “ making Berlin the largest gallery location in Europe” in Checkout [ART], a very good dialogue about contemporary art, “what artists are doing, what galleries are exhibiting, what collectors are putting in their homes and offices”

new paintings

Promenade des Anglais, Nice / oil on canvas / 100 x 100 cm / 2009

There are times which “catch” you, there are landscapes which „enchant” you and atmospheres which “embrace” you in a way which reveals long forgotten memories… such times are summer, the Mediterranean landscape and the atmosphere of the French Riviera. They all meet at this beginning of autumn in Cluj, in my simple “new paintings” or Mediterranean impressions. I can say, without emphasis, that the encounter of these three marks has made me incline towards colour beatitude and the rediscovery of emotions felt long ago. The postimpressionist landscape through the Cezannian example, the fauvism with its lyrical Dufy and tenor Matisse, the joy of life from Renoir and Bonnard’s coloured palette, together with the felt and seen blue, which veils you from everywhere, all these constitute the base of my new paintings. Three elements of the landscape become central through their repetition: the blue of the sea, the red-pink flow…

Cluj Art OnLine Gallery

Well, as I was “cleaning up” some files in my computer, I found this link to CAOL, a former Cluj Art On Line Gallery… “Cluj Art OnLine Gallery is an alternative place to Cluj cultural area, a spot which brings forward Cluj contemporary art and painting, not only to the art collector but also to the potential collector, businessman, private or administrative offices or both”…
I have closed the site this winter, after eight years, because the target I wanted didn’t unfortunately reach my expectations. With good and bad things, the gallery doesn’t function in a place without a real art market. I believe the few art lovers who are here want more real things instead of virtual ones. Anyway, it was a good experience for me and while it was online I received good remarks and critics, having good artists’ portfolios.
I would like to thank once again the main sponsor of the gallery, Mr. Dan Gruita, for supporting this project, he is one of the true Romanian patrons of fine arts.

ca o continuare la interviul cu A. Plesu de mai jos, iata ce am mai vazut...: Black Sea gets black marks as golden sands lose their sparkle inRomanian Times

by David Rogers

When it comes to holiday experiences, there can be few more miserable places to end up at than the Romanian Black Sea coast as David Rogers found out when he tested a resort for the Romanian Times. His account follows.
.....The difficulties started from the moment I tried to get into the hotel, with the access ramps for luggage and presumably disabled people permanently blocked by cars and even the stairs to the hotel cordoned off by a ring of cars - the no-parking signs were totally ignored. In fact, no sooner had I parked my car but it too was sealed off by another car.... reed more in

despre romani, Romania, un interviu cu A. Plesu in Adevarul

Ies mai puţin pe stradă acum decât ieşeam înainte şi nu sunt încântat de ce văd, ceea ce nu înseamnă că îmi plăcea mai mult înainte. Însă aş fi preferat ca, plecând de la acel stadiu, să fi evoluat altfel. Deocamdată, suntem într-o anumită impuritate: şi vizual, şi auditiv, şi stilistic şi vestimentar, şi alimentar.

E, în peisajul cotidian, ceva confuz şi neaşezat. Suntem neaşezaţi. Şi am pierdut câteva virtuţi importante: respectul pentru celălalt, admiraţia genuină, autentică pentru calitatea şi reuşita umană, bunăcuviinţa, politeţea, bunătatea. Mi mi se pare că în România lipseşte tot mai acut bunătatea inimii.

Riviera franceza

Pregatiri… nunta… chefuri…vacanta mare...revin la Cluj, amintiri deja... caldura, mare, azur, dragoste, Cezanne, pini, Dufy, Matisse, fructe de mare, vin rosu, culoare, colorat, albastru ultramarin, cyan, ceruleum, leandri, arta, artisti, Picasso, Miro, lux, Saint Tropez, barci, iahturi, plaja, bere... sudul Frantei: un loc binecuvantat de soare, un loc care merita simtit pe propria piele. S-a vorbit, pictat, desenat si scris mult de Riviera, Provence, de atmosfera locului, de peisajele sale, de campurile de lavanda, de livezile de maslini si padurile de pini, de pictorii si artistii care au ridicat in nemurire aceste locuri, de agoniile si extazul lor. Personal l-am simtit si "citit" mai bine pe Cezanne, m-am apropiat mai mult de Miro si in special l-am redescoperit pe Raoul Dufy prin peisajele acestor locuri. Pe langa bucuria vietii lui Van Gogh simtita in marile muzee ale lumii, aici l-am simtit in adevar peRaoul Dufy (1877 - 1953) din peisajul vazut prin prisma personala…

doua orase, doua mentalitati, doua tari vecine, mici mari diferente, Debrecen si Cluj, orase importante si cu pretentii culturale...

The MODEM Centre for Modern and Contemporary Art – Debrecen, Hungary: In September 2006 one of the largest and probably the most up-to-date modern and contemporary art gallery of the country and its greater region was opened. The MODEM is remarkably suitable for being the centre of modern and contemporary international art life in Central Europe according to its size, position and architectural conditions.

These amazing new clouds look to be a warning, or are just new shapes for new times ? After watching the "Home" movie I wonder ... the Earth does not belong to the humans... The cloud with no name: Meteorologists campaign to classify unique 'Asperatus' clouds seen across the world

Luc Besson's New Film 'Home' Debuts on YouTube

757,500 views on YouTube till now, wonderful text comments down on the page…. Yes, an incredible video about our life on Earth, what should we do? Choices…We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climat... Luc Besson's Home, a 50-minute environmental film, has officially debuted on YouTube at the same time it appears in cinema and on TV. (I say "officially" because Besson is uploading the film itself, as opposed to some pirate action).

peisaje si gunoaie

Weekendul trecut am facut o iesire de duminica, asa, de voie buna, spre natura… dar cu regret pot spune, ca pe zi ce trece, parca orice iesire de scurta durata in weekend ma face sa imi reconsider gradina. Peste tot lume, galagie si murdarie… cand te uiti din masina unde vezi un loc de foc sau popas vezi murdarie. Gunoaie de parca ar fi trecut salbaticii pe-acolo. Vatra inconjurata de bolovani, peturi, badoage, conserve… Avem o tara minunata, dar murdara! Am fost la Tarnita, un lac frumos, dar efectiv nu ai unde sa te asezi intr-un mod civilizat. Unde s-a putut s-a construit, locuri private unde nu mai poti sede. Orice poiana inca “publica” este poluata in toate felurile, de la urlete si muzica data la maximum pana la omniprezentele plasticuri. De la coada lacului am luat-o pe partea cealalta. Un scurt popas unde am mancat ceva si fiindca am mers cu un jeep al unor prieteni am putut trece de o alunecare de teren mare si de bolovanii care blocau accesul. Nefiind umblat de mult drumul, …
