CRITICAL REVIEW


        Concerned with the aesthetic and spiritual dimension which could be gained by matter in the hands and the imagination of the artist, Gheorghe Nour, a sculptor from Galaţi, turns his passion for volumes into a lifestyle by embodying cultural education and elaborating an impressive number of works and artistic gestures. Seduced by the warm valences of the wood essences, such as walnut tree, plum tree, cherry tree, locust tree or by the gravity and elegance of copper, the artist provides by his contribution to modifying its shape the change in the matter paradigm.
