Statement

The nude male is rarely present as a subject in painting. It is neither obscene nor shocking and can be exposed like any other genre painting: interior, still life, landscape or portrait. Paintings of nude male illustrate this theme as a symbolic character. My figurative work oscillates between two dimensions, real and fantastic. The characters in "Glorious Bastards" are entangled in a battle with an unseen force in the struggle between good and evil. "The Horse Tamer" is an expression of male power and passion. I believe that despite radical art movements and challenges, the classical ideal remains the accepted definition of beauty. In recent years, one can see a return to humanism in art, a return to animated forms and a comeback to realism. In my case, it’s realism with a symbolic tint. "Winged Genius" is a fantastic character, a guardian spirit, a demigod. Postmodernism brings gods to everyday life. www.paulacraioveanu.com
