Art in Conversation with Edi Apostu
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Doctor of Philosophy, Edi Apostu, is the founder of the academic artistic technique of "Holotropic Art". By embarking upon a pilgrimage of deep and profound self-exploration, Apostu reaches a cerebral state; through the touch of brush to canvas he relates the inferred sacred messages of the preternatural world to an inexhaustible audience...
The mesmerising solace Apostu finds in, what he describes as, an ultimate body of consciousness is communicated to a wider congregation through bold and intense compositions that possess limitless interpretations and strongly relate to the artist’s erudite practice of Zen meditation and transpersonal journeys, which enable his union with the external realm.
Apostu’s works are utterly transcendent in their ability to propel the viewer into an otherwise seemingly sacrosanct dimension.
When observing the symbolic forms within Apostu’s magnificent "Spiral of Time. 8207" the academic distortion of shape gives the impression of fervent activity and intertwined personal histories. "Spiral of Time. 8207" is said to contain 8207 heterogeneous shades, which proffer the viewer with a unique visual experience that translates the artist’s innate viewpoint.
Edi Apostu Critique by Timothy Warrington (INTERNATIONAL CONFEDERATION OF ART CRITICS)
Painter | United Kingdom
"The holotropic art is the art which is the result of transpersonal experiences and which can transpose the beholder into states of overconsciousness." (Dr. Eduard Apostu 2006)
All my artistic creation, either painting, line drawings or poetry, is rich in symbols and universal archetypes. Even if most of my works are abstract, they transmit subtle messages and have as source of inspiration The Source, the Universal Source from which Information comes, information which materializes in the physical plan in my creations.
I consider my artistic achievements as a stage in the process of both artistic self-perfection but especially in the spiritual one, because creating them I raised existential and metaphysical problems to myself and I think that the inspiration the artist receives while giving birth to a work of art can become an answer, because the artistic creation cannot have, in my opinion, a strictly human origin.
Personally, I consider that the art is the most fascinating manifestation of the Divine creator at the terrestrial and physical level, through which there is made the connection between the limited-ephemeral human condition and the infinite-eternal Divine.
