We’ll decompose, we’ll reduce, we’ll substitute and we’ll recompose.
The mouth, the eyes, the arms cannot stay in their place anymore. They just cannot. There is too much tidiness in a dissolving world. The man without skin (the écorché present in every art academy) is crying for life, flesh, and colour. Or for being destroyed by the painter in an action of revolt. Master artist is still haunting schools speaking about painting technique and artistic qualities, petting the skeleton?teaching aid from time to time. A break is needed...
Razvan Boar reveals in this exhibition the diary about his relation with painting, a relation marked by dissatisfaction, discontinuity, and tiredness. He is trying to take a breath of air and rethink his interior space, populated by altered, anonymous, self-coloured characters. These characters may eventually turn from enemies into friends, and may contribute to (re)conquering one's self and painting.
