If I should have to define myself in a few words as visual artist, I should stress that the experiment is the main factor that connects all my creations.
Although I am perceived generally as a painter - and indeed this is my main activity - I am using also other artistical media, depending on the subject, as for example: photography (in photo installation "Mengele's collection' exposed at the Venice Bienale in 1997 or the photo installation 'Milky Way' - Mulhouse, France 1996), sculpture (the exposition 'Who shot us?' at the Art Museum Timisoara 1992 and 'Ten Years After' personal exhibition at Romanian National Art Museum - Bucharest 1999) and performance ('The Police is on our Side' - Timisoara 1991). And in painting, depending on the project, I am continuously experiencing new things. I have been imposed as expressionist artist, but I have also some other domains that I investigate in paintings.
