        In sculpture, Ioan Șeu&39;s calling for monumentality is converted into a more cordial imagery.
Dan Grigorescu (1999)

        Ioan Șeu, with diverse interests, who shows several marble works that are cut with the utmost accuracy, are stylized, and aim at the relationship between man and the cosmos and the embodiment of several general ideas to the entire humankind.
Marin Mihalache (1999)

        Ioan Șeu - a name, an artist, and a man who, believing in himself, forced the stone to make us think beautifully about beauty. Let us watch his work bowing our heads as a token of respect for what Ioan Șeu is and will be: a great and peerless artist.
Dumitru Hurubă (1999)

        The sculptures of Ioan Șeu are gratifying both quantitatively and qualitatively. Through their rhythmic interferences of shapes, his works resemble the miraculous span of a pair of strong wings soaring high in undescribed, obsessibely vertical trajectories.
Dan Câmpean (2002)

        In this sculpture, Ioan Șeu shows a steady science of the incision, of the deeper or more superficial cuts, and of handling the surfaces and the grooves close to the linguistic units in the sentence, directed in rhythmic formations and, we could say, musically modeled in order to reach an optimum visual communication of great beauty and purity. Under the same analysis, we could also notice the artist&39;s special language of intelligent alternation between unprocessed, rugged areas and areas that are completely polished and melodiously vibrated. New and unexpected harmonies are born of these conflicts.
