Iulian Bisericaru’s latest series draws inspiration from the modern architectural developments in housing models, such as the one in post-war United States’ Long Island residential areas. The utopian architecture confronts the natural environments in portrayed convulsions of space of disputed territories. The vision reflected by Iulian Bisericaru when painting can be sensed somewhere between the Bay Area Figurative Movement and the lyrical abstraction provided with amendments, juxtapositions, sustained constructions, control, ecology, balance, bizarre plants. Visibly attractive, the image composes our perception regarding the possible, the apparent or perhaps even the concealed form. The painting’s surface is actually a discontinuous aggregate where images and ideas overlap. There is an abrasive conceptualism which selects the style of visual experience and the subjects that matter. �
