Artist’s wife – oil-canvas – 60×80 cm
At his 40 years of artistic activity, painter John Cârjoi proves a great creative force, capable of renewal, of artistic experiences developed in a personal manner. For the artist, nature remains the primary inspiration, but having different meanings full of harmony. In order of its presentation, either architectural, archaeological or rustic, the painter adapts nature to a certain rhythm, composition and space. The two major themes approached by Ion Cârjoi are landscape and still life, with equal and profound metaphorical vision, having a common nature: harmony and expressiveness of color, warmth and clarity, habitual architectural or spatial enhancement and decoration which often goes beyond its symbolic meaning.
