Prezentare Demers Artistic
Nicolae Catavei “…proposes a structure of great fascination in which he artfully combines contemporaneous tradition and research, entrusting to beauty the codes of a philosophical, archaic and mysterious alphabet in view of its content. The meditation and research of the artist considers that deciphering mystery and wisdom values is a place of learning.
His assembling painting work overcomes time, suggesting routes of artistic experience between the plenteous and void items coinciding with meditation, transcendence, the nescience of the invisible beyond the universal visible …inserts erudite quotations in each work, alternating from the severe breath to the extraordinary magic of colors and materials…”
