The exhibition at Quadro Gallery, showcasing over forty graphical works and wooden sculptures by Mircea Vremir, an artist familiar to the public mainly as a painter, aims at revealing a lesser-known facet of his oeuvre.
Mircea Vremir is one of those artists in whose case, in the 1960s, we can remark the modernisation of the visual language which gradually distanced itself from socialist realism. At a relatively early stage, already in the first years of his career, he develops his peculiar formal language, reliant on blobs of paint and reminiscent of chisel marks, which can be traced back to the technique of the linocuts produced at the end of the 1950s.
The underlying themes of his lifetime opus are visible in his graphical works also: the world of the Danube Delta and the everyday existence of the fishermen, the mountainous, rural and industrial landscapes of Transylvania, the expressive portraits and the stylised still lifes indicative of abstraction.
Mircea Vremir wanted to go beyond the static, studio-like character of painting and anxiously embraced all materials and expressive forms which enabled him to create in active, dynamic harmony with nature. The concrete manifestation of this art, perfectly integrated in nature and aiming at the transformation of life, can be found – in addition to the everyday objects elevated to artistic heights – in the boat the artist built for him and his family.
