Aurel Patrascu about the 'Introspection' Exhibition
It's the theme of gates, a theme I've been researching very seriously for many years, it's the theme of chimeras which is in a rather special mixed technique, with honey, mixtures, color very carefully crafted and the last part is the theme of Ubu Rex after Alfred Jarry. It's a very tender topic from the artist's point of view. I also dealt with theater. It is about a puppet play by Jarry in which the central human character, the man, goes from the shape of the toy, to the most abject forms possible: soul, there is even physical. From Ubu 'the good', to Ubu 'the bad' is a very tender area for me, I really like the show.
