M: It is precisely the act of mental reconstruction of an event, this is a post conflict situation. This is the monstrosity sparing itself a pause. Just because there are thoughts and feelings on which we cannot discuss, or which would be so trivialized by word and figuration … it does not mean they do not exist, right? Continue reading

Colony Art Gallery

Colony Art ( presented the exhibition “UN-FINISHED” – artists Maia Oprea ( and Matei Enric ( 

Thoughts, feelings, filtered, husked and conceptualised moods are linked together in the compositions of Maia Oprea and Matei Enric. All this introspective journey is translated into unconventional means, on experimental media. “Un-finished” defines a phase, a transition from the studio of study to the one of stage.

“Lining” is a group work based mainly on one of my old projects, “Bucharest, Roadblock”, a journey in which I used transparent tape, pasting through public and private spaces as well. This time too, the tape is used to make a kind of drawing in space, a drawing that seeks light strokes or which allows light to be traced.  Continue reading

Comment prendre possession de l’espace et de quelle façon pourrait-on le faire ?

“Trans / figuration” est une sorte de mise en capsule dutemps, par la prise de conscience très aiguë de son passage, se précisant comme unelongue attente: que du nouveau soit produit à partir de ce que quotidiennement on jette, que puis j’inventorie, je stocke et je traitedans un processus que j’imagine constant et à flux continu. C’est juste en prenant conscience du temps qui coule que je prends possession de l’espace qui m’entoure, espace que je fait habiter par des résidus temporels sous différentes formes.

You distort what you see, in your own manner, and we can say that the particular mode of distorting things signifies a certain attitude towards life. ” (Francis Bacon)

In “Exhaustion” it is me  with my dog, at the countryside, during summer, asleep in the fields.

But what I feel that is conclusive is what Francis Bacon said in an interview:

“What I feel it is conclusive is that when you are painting a man sitting, just like this, in a room, or walking down the street,

almost all the people looking at the paintings seem to agree that they portray anything but a trivial or neutral situation

and that figure is involved in some sort of crisis – perhaps the idea of ​​an imminent disaster. “


“Exhausted” is available for sale on Saatchi Online :
