Art in Conversation
with Maurice Mircea Novac
ABOUT THE ARTIST
MAURICE MIRCEA NOVAC
Painter | Romania
Contemporary visual artist, known for his neo-expressionist and figurative approach towards postmodernism painting.
His works are an immersion into art history. The artist draws on his excursions into artistic expression from the ancient world to contemporary provocations. He explores a full range of classical themes including nudes, landscapes, still life, and various techniques such as glazing, leaking, dripping.
Most comfortable when he can merge figurative, abstract metaphysics, surrealism, and expressionism. Put simply, we could say his paintings are figurative achieved through abstract and expressionist means.
NO ATWORKS FOR SALE AT THE MOMENT
For me, painting as art in general in all its forms of expression means first of all to resonate with the present time. Any form of representation that does not take into account this imperative has limited durability.
In my painting, I seek to fold my ideas in a form of sincere expression and as appropriate as possible to the way in which the contemporary eye has been accustomed to look as a result of experiences gained over time.
