Claudiu Presecan’s abstract impressionist style and his fascinating painting unveil a deep connection with the natural world. He manifests his powerful artistic discourse through the vibration of color.
We live in a big city and yet, we get the impression that we are in the natural world’s spotlight. We rejoice in the power we swiped away from nature only to turn back against it. We have stepped away from nature, carefully building a concrete world that leads us to believe that we are self-sufficient.
Yet nature keeps feeding and fueling our endeavors patiently. Once we step away from the urban rush, the material world starts to melt under nature’s overwhelming force. It takes time to get used to a quiet place, abounding in life and color.
Seizing the life force running through the heart of Transylvania requires amazing dedication and an authentic connection with nature. Claudiu’s works act as a translator, enabling our bond with the primordial, undisturbed balance of nature.
The beautiful speckled trout fish, blessed with a golden body and a line of red sharp dots are in perfect harmony with nature. They have no need to conquer other species, to assume a status and to break wildlife’s patterns. Claudiu takes upon him the role to protect this beautiful species reminding us to unhide our love and gratefulness.
He reveals water’s grace, power and vibrancy using a variety of mediums and techniques. The transparency of silk and the volumes through which tracing paper responds to the brush open to new perspectives. The artworks reveal a world of magic, found in the authentic experience of nature.
The experience of an abstract painting stirs up a response within one’s self and proposes a connection. The painting speaks through its colors, densities and volumes. We follow the lines, absorb the contrasts and gently let them bring us back to harmony with ourselves and nature.
