I worked on this painting in my 38th and 39th weeks of pregnancy, waiting for Meira, my first daughter, to be born. Today I finished this painting dedicated to her, but she still doesn’t seem decided to jump into the world.

De multă vreme am ajuns să consider mare parte din schițele realizate în trecut (în perioada 2002 – 2012) ca fiind o materie și materiale ce trebuie digerate și reintegrate într-un circuit prezent de creație. Selecția acestora și timpul petrecut studiindu-le, analizândule, sau doar pur și simplu observându-le, depozitându-le și restaurându-le a înlocuit de fapt orice act prezent de creație cu o ștergere minuțioasă a amintirilor. Amintirea, ca apofantică, are întotdeauna o acțiune recursivă, raza ei se întinde asupra vieții mele actuale, ea este o intruziune în viața mea. Reutilizarea acestor schițe ar fi o curățire lăuntrică ce mi-ar da posibilitatea să renasc în și prin propria creație, dar nu ar fi propriu-zis o ștergere, cât un amplu proces de reparație și de petrecere a timpului.

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 : http://www.saatchionline.com/art/Painting-Exhausted/43191/1854156/view

Here’s the second video from the “Waste-first stage” exhibition.
It’s been a very intense week here in the village of Inoteşti, somewhere 100 km above Bucharest. Mothers ran from home leaving their children behind, youngsters drank ţuică to kill their toothache, dogs were frozen dead on the main roads, while I was discovering the realm of the unique and amazingly difficult technique of Watercolour, which I have very rarely approached in the past.
