RECEPTOR is an exhibition that gathers Liviu Mihai’s latest works in a daring project of contemporary art. The major themes of this project reveal political, social and human aspects, from actual figures belonging to Romania’s short monarchal history to Freudian elements or complex introspection processes of the human body.

About

The maturity of an artist comes undoubtedly from his target viewers without neglecting the structural changes behind. Despite all the turmoil and transformation specific to an entity endowed with a frame, the human being gets a prominent place. The background is not a priority, and light density is a factor that can fool the eye; what seems a dull area on the surface of a human body widens psychological contact. Captivated by the concepts of transformation/becoming, the artist tackles the human figure in terms of degradation or coming back into his animal state in relevant paintings like Behind, Transforming Flesh and Devore. It is a subconscious connection between the rational being and his animal instincts and from one form to another there is but a tiny step.

Originally interpreting the psychological and social facets of the human nature, Mihai’s recognition has materialised in a 3rd Prize Winner Best Artist Award bestowed by Oxford International Art Fair in 2014. His paintings juxtapose elements of human figures and natural settings in a unique concept trying to render the abstract through the material. His forms dimly perceived at first become more and more alive
with contemplation.
