“Absorption” proposes two ways of interpreting the works of the nine artists: a radicalization of the pictorial discourse by using action painting full of force and colour where are brought into discussion issues related to form and composition and a representation that is truncated, distorted of a dehumanized and fragmentary society. The nine artists approach the idea of destruction, death, decay, as being the point 0 (zero) of creation.

Bandi Saşa is preocupaied by the malignant evil of contemporary society. At the antipole, Kyle Fitzpatrick proposes a confrontation with matter after the loss of mystery. The works of Adrian Ghiman bring into discussion the ideas of self-destruction, decay, sickness that lead to a split representation of the world.

At Pavel Grosu the act of destruction triggers the creative act; the idea of death becomes a pretext to question new ways of artistic expression. Szabolcs Veres fragmentizes the human figure, and after that he recomposes it within an unusal order that triggers a new type of grotesque deformed sensuality.

Betuker proposes a series of portraits that are completely depersonalized as a result of composition and colour exercises. At Zsolt Berszán everything becomes fluid materiality, absorptive, organic. In this way, distorted surfaces and strange structures appear and describe a non-finite of the beginning and end.

Mircea But is interested in investigating the pictorial possibilities of representation that appear as a result of some fractures of gestural rhythm between natural and artificial. Rashid Uri captures the evironment in continuous motion by paying sharp attention to the dynamics of the pictorial gesture.
