CRITICAL REVIEW


        Experienced sculptor from Timisoara, stylistically well anchored in the urban cultural context.  The series of metamorphoses materialized in the concreteness of the solid tri-dimensional, caved with surgical mathematic precision, rakishly evoke, honestly and prompt, that vibrating passion, that violently erupts from within the geometric womb of lithic raw material.
Abstract volumetrical works, island-like textured, perfectly balanced in the harmonic dialogue’s alternating rhythm, convex concave, saturating the aerated palimpsest, transitorily touched surfaces, in a very precise way, right at the frontier that stands between colour, texture and volume. The ronde-bosse summoning series creates a whole, special by its constant synchronism fully released by coherent joining in the common aestheticism context, in a perfect environmental symbiosis, circumstantially following the sober, generous area of Calpe Gallery.

(Stillness Metamorphoses by Gabriel Kelemen)
