Art Yourself @Art Monaco 2016 / Gheorghe Fikl
Gheorghe Fikl is a remarkable Romanian artist with a degree at Art University of Timisoara – Romania. He lives and works quite isolated in an awesome house and atelier on a hill near Timisoara.
Fikl’s works conceal a profound metaphysical dimension. The striking images and violent tones, in which antagonistic symbols of absolute piety and aggressive carnality explore each other from a small distance, reveal a permanent and almost unbearable psychological tension which focuses particularly on the “no man’s land” between them.
Strange worlds meet on the surfaces of Gheorghe Fikl’s opulent paintings. The grand and awe-inspiring kingdom of Life, of animals and nature, is set against the luxurious backdrop of lavish objects and decadent settings. In Fikl’s paintings two forms of bounty collide to produce a hybrid world in which glory, beauty, and elegance reign supreme.
