Barb Marius Vasile
Prezentare Demers Artistic
“Belonging to “the 3rd round” of the Romanian contemporary painting (i.e. that which covers the 90s), Marius “Barbone” Barb managed to develop, even since his formation period, a personal well individualized touch which he still uses… Shapes of a voluptuous expression changed into an amputated anatomy in which the flesh (not without some erotic reflexes) becomes either juicy and visceral, or melancholical and slightly perverted. A detached and always fresh unfolding around a formal idea core, well set and beautifully argued.
A well mastered challenge aimed at the right place: at what some call glory (which Marius Barb has already tasted), at seriousness and professionalism adorned by a type of courage (quite rare) to constantly renew and at the same time to be immediately recognizable.“
