Expoziția aduce laolaltă trei artiști care abordează pictura în feluri aparent distincte: prin examinarea critică a calităților ei materiale, a gramaticii simbolice și a limbajului formal (Radu Comșa); prin contemplarea abstractă, care operează cu inefabilul (Ioan Popdan); prin conversația esențială cu propria-i istorie și cu condiționările legate de medium (Florin Ștefan). Cele trei căi se întâlnesc în planul absolut al abstracțiunii, acolo unde pictura devine deopotrivă aluzie și acord formal. (Daria Dumitrescu)

„How I have been deceived! I was deluded by the painting into thinking that the figures were not painted but were real beings, moving and loving – at any rate I shout at them as though they could hear and I imagine that I hear some response – and you did not utter a single word to turn me back from my mistake, being as much overcome as I was and unable to free yourself from the deception and the stupefaction induced by it. So let us look at the details of the painting; for it really is a painting before which we stand.” (Philostratus the Elder, Imagines, 1.28 Hunters)

The show brings together three artists who approach painting in seemingly unrelated ways: through a critical examination of its material qualities, symbolic grammar and formal language (Radu Comșa); through abstract contemplation, by processing the ineffable (Ioan Popdan); through an intrinsic conversation with its own history and conditions as a medium (Florin Ștefan). These three paths meet in the absolute plane of abstraction, where painting becomes both allusion and formal consonance. (Daria Dumitrescu)
