Cucuteni - Where Art Meets History

Here some images from my newest exhibition, open in Berlin, Germany. The exhibition includes decorations and hand-crafted jewellery inspired by the Cucuteni culture (fourth millennium B.C.).

I am a fan of art forms uncovered through archaeological explorations in the city of Cucuteni, in north-eastern Romania. 

The series of artifacts below attempts to re-create some of the artistic motifs apparent in the Cucuteni culture: the spiral, symbol of life, geometric and archaic patterns. The material of choice is ceramics, in keeping with the majority of objects found at Cucuteni; on this foundation I have layered a guilded paint coat.

For me, this exhibition this was an opportunity to reflect on the ability of art to regenerate itself and to speak to us across time and space in its solitary and enigmatic voice.

Images from the art exhibition "LINIE-FLÄCHE-RAUM"(LINE-SURFACE-SPACE) in Berlin, 2011

The art exhibition LINIE-FLÄCHE-RAUM (LINE-SURFACE-SPACE) open from end of June to 12th of July 2011 in Berlin in the Blankensteinsaal of the Kesselhaus Museum has been one of the highlights of the summer for me.

It was a great opportunity to present some of my newest paintings and graphics creations and to connect with friends and art lovers from Berlin and out of town.

Now that the magic moments of the Opening night (June 29th, 2011) and the Long night of the paintings (July 2nd, 2011) are behind me, I'd like to take a moment to reflect on what this experience has meant for me.

First off - a hectic work period, but a vibrant and exciting one. 

Secondly, a time of  reflection, as I worked to integrate my work within the theme of the exhibition.

And thirdly, a time of joy - the joy to meet new friends and to get their perspectives on art.

I hope you enjoy the images from this event and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

I will include the images of three new paintings from this exhibition in my next post - so be sure to check my blog in a couple of days!

Two drawings in the Canadian literary magazine "dandelion"

Some wonderful news from Canada!

Two of my drawings are featured in the latest issue of dandelion magazine (“literature and art on edge”) published by the Department of English at the University of Calgary.

They are part of two ‘picto-poems’ (poems and drawings) created by me and Irina, with whom I have been collaborating for over a year now, experimenting in what I believe to be two congruent realms: art and poetry.

I’m thrilled to be able to see this work in print now, after having posted some of our work  online – it’s a nice change of medium and definitely something worth exploring once more!

Invitation to the Exhibition at Bethel Haus - Opening Night March 1st, 2011

 Dear friends:

Last week I've set up my newest art and graphics exhibition at Bethel Haus in Berlin.
It will open on March 1st, and I look forward to seeing you there - at the opening night!

The exhibition hosts some of my recent paintings and graphics.

For me, it was quite interesting to think through how I can craft a new ambiance for some of the themes that pervade my work, making use of the space and light at Bethel Haus.

Here are some images from this space, that I am glad to say, appears to wrap nicely  around the contours in my art- or at least, I think it does.

I look forward to friendly chat and a warm evening at the opening night, so I hope you can make it!
