As much as I remember, I was always attracted by the arts and I began to paint, sing
and play instruments at an early age, in my native Transylvania.
At the age of 13 I began studying at a musical school, but a few years later, in high
school, I switched to the fine arts. I graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of
Bucharest - a six years university program, including studio and nature drawing,
painting, ceramic sculpture & design and art theory classes.
Soon after graduation, I left the communist Romania.
My first solo show was mentioned in Jerusalem Post Magazine. I was deeply
disappointed about how my work was misunderstood by an art journalist I never knew.
This was my first warning about the parasites the art world is infested with.
I decided to complete my knowledge of art theory so I could defend my work.
I settled in Canada and I got a Master degree in Art History at Montreal University.
Gradually, I became detached from the physical object and I left behind sculpture,
letting my ceramics to disintegrate in the nature, like an old chapter of my life. A new
chapter started with Photoshop and the Web, by the end of the last century.
I needed an alternative space to present a concept without the institutional and
commercial constraints of a gallery. Web exposure modes became permanent and
exclusive, where my artistic projects are interspersed with certain informations about
my life and art preferences. The Music inspires me extensively.
Art is a way of life, not a career for me. "Ghost artists” as myself are minimalist
communicators, manifested publicly only by their creative projects.
My installations focus on the essence, the inner world. They are an enhanced reality or,
as they say today, an augmented reality. I am presenting my concepts by inserting my
virtual sculptures into the scenery captured by my photos and videos, but I am waiting
for a technological advance that could overlap my digital imagery onto the real world,
so as they appear to grow there.
