Aurel Patrascu

In graphics or painting, the Chimeras or the related Cimpans - a term created by the artist for the graphic images reminiscent of refined transfers of some essential motifs from the stylizations of Romanian folklore - gladden the eye and provoke imagination. A fine network of coloured lines vibrates the white surface of the paper in graphic works, the brilliance of the blues, and the reds is boosted by the white of the fund, which Aurel Patrascu knows how to use it judiciously. With the second series, the Gates, a new dimension enters into the artist's work: the sacred. His gates become signs of the passage between two worlds.
