Cristian Ditoiu

The works presented by Cristian Ditoiu in this exhibition are serene and harmonious, unencumbered by extras and plots, shielded from emphatic gestures, from the din, deconstructions or dissonances that often find a place to manifest in postmodern parlance. Simple geometric figures – the square, the rectangle with the golden section and their derivatives, centred, displaced towards the heights, segmented, superimposed and combined – are painted in the pure tones of primary colours and in their complementary colours (although the artist does not limit himself only to these), without modulations, in an equal, intense, transcendent light.
