Dan Bancila

Dan Bancila is, without a doubt, a name with resonance in contemporary decorative art. First of all, through his absolute certainties; failure to share them would constitute a crime of opinion we neither want, nor can commit after seeing and revisiting his works, as always, from precious materials or materials which through the artist’s work can ascend to preciousness: crystal with its pure glimmers and colours, bronze in scours and shapes long sought after; these are the combinations, juxtapositions, insertions and often unpredictable connections between the volumes, sometimes with a figurative inclination, which impels us to identify the proximate gender, but also the specific differences; the effects are searched and obtained through ethereal transparencies, through translucent surfaces which temper them and opacities which close or limit the compositional elements bearing rhythms and meanings.
