Prezentare Demers Artistic
Florin Menzopol builds up his still-lives and his landscapes in the rigorous way in which, centuries ago, still-natures and landscapes were built. Then, over the present structure of the world to be shown, he comes, with his own personal tune. We could say that we know what the name of his paint¬ing is, but, nevertheless, we are subtly revealed a new name too. Florin Menzopol, wants to produce the grations, only that, using a colour and a drawing with impact, he comes with a monumental cry that impresses deeply. After a time, we find out that what is left of his painting in our memory, is the sound of a silky red, of an old velvet green and with them the need to find them again around us. That is, we see the world with the painter’s eyes, which is notable.”
Tudor Octavian, The Contemporary, 7/14 Febr. 1986
The painter Florin Menzopol’s several works, apparently very different between themselves, show once again, after his personal exhibition in Bucharest last year, the strong stylistic nerve and unitary vision of the artist, performing between abstract and figurative, among symbolic, alegoric and simply descriptive, with the same personal, relaxed, chromatic and gestual vividness.
