ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sculptor and restorer, Marius Bacriu is also the President of the Lugoj Branch of the Fine Artists’ Union of Romania. Knowing perfectly to subdue and turn wood into a delicate lace, Bacriu’s creations, with their multiple facets and openings, with geometries of holes, penetrations and perforations, not not have an archaic appearance, but also a complete organic structure that looks like honeycombs in nature.
The artist says “I am fascinated by flight, light, by the transparence I try to transpose into wood and stone. My favourite symbols are the column, the gate and Icarus. In sculpture as, in fact, in all arts, there is a relationship between the material and the immaterial, which I try to represent. It is the correspondence between what can and what cannot be seen.”
The perforated niches are places of passage or shelter for spirits, access for floating creatures, places for spiritual entities, windows for the soul. The hollow structures, crowded towards the heart of the work, from a visual perspective, are conductive holes for air and light, and provide an opportunity for air to communicate with the material from which the sculptures are made off.
