Prezentare Demers Artistic
” Dorel Petrehus’s world, like people, is eternally bandaged in distinct color strips, on which the evanescent of the lines is replaced by an almost painful inconsistency. The bodies are slowly remaining without flesh and they are becoming only some ethereal silhouettes, such that the human nature real drama takes place inside of the bandages as they seem, in fact, a crust of real existence. […] Dorel Petrehus wins in this way a complicated bet, in the same time with the color and with the essential issues of the human nature: the inner drama’’.
(Florin Toma, A world full of bandages, the daily ,,Cotidianul” No. 114 Wednesday, October 16, 1991)
“…Dorel Petrehus has already a defined style. The colored paste it’s flows whit velocity, the brushing it’s ample, violent, spermatic, shameless, edgy, the contours are sometimes sharp and twisted or sometimes flat and watery, lazy and obtuse, alive, crass, fresh, building in this way a ‹‹male›› painting seconded by a few warm moments, feminine once. Dorel Petrehus hurries to win a battle with himself, a battle where the rival is the canvas support of woven made in the country on the ‹‹faces›› offering us a holy color noon…”.
(Ioan Marchis, DOREL PETREHUS – “The primitive power of the color” in the magazine ,,Archeus” Nr. 1-2 (20-21), 1999, p. 105, Baia Mare)
