In the Name of the River

Solo show at the Cluj Art Museum, April 2015



The birth of my son was a very important moment in my life: everything was reborn for me and got new meanings, another dimension. I have discovered the river in its greatness and beauty. The resonance of silence, the beauty of the landscapes of my wanderings along the river and mountain waters led me to capture in painting the images of rapid or mild streams, they made me think of harmony and atemporality. Because of its sacred meaning (water is the symbol of life and death or immortality), the river remains a purifying and regenerative element. I have tried to express this idea through the filter of my soul enclined towards natural beauty. I have depicted impressions, aquatic or aerial elements, details, the water reflections in a first series of paintings starting with 2011 and have continued until 2013. This process led me to the exhibit titled “August Dream”, and continued with the “Magic River” and the present exhibit “In the Name of the River”. In the present exhibit “In the Name of the River” I have focused on the aquatic abstract elements, those of shape and color playing on the beautiful skin of the trout, the “king of the river”.

The exhibit “In the Name of the River” is intended as a connective bridge between the material and spiritual worlds; it is an advocacy effort for the possible spiritual renewal of mankind.

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…

Sorin Campan exhibition at Plan B Gallery, Cluj

Sorin Campan: Pata Street, 2002, oil on cardboard, 31,5 x 36,5 cm


Yesterday I visited Sorin Campan’s show at Plan B Gallery, here in Cluj. He belongs to an elder generation of Romanian artists, fully represented before 1989, while keeping a distance from the official art of the period.On the white walls of the gallery, under fluorescent light, I found his paintings to be very sensitive and warm. A kind of old moments, undefined times and petrified for eternity. There were mere landscape, but loaded with emotions. I was glad to discover these works in the gallery’s new agenda, among other renowned Transylvanian artists such as Gheorghe Ilea, who will be opening a show in Plan B’s space in Berlin next month. I found the atmosphere of Campan’s paintings resembling the paintings from the art school: full of life, mysterious and powerful. I would like to tell those of you who are in Cluj or have time to visit this show, it’s definitely worth it! I enjoyed it! Besides, when I went out of the…
