Petru Severin

Petru Severin, contemporary painter

Initially, the plastic matter was considered a substitute for the natural matter, completely subjected to the man's will. In time she has obtained an autonomy of existence, provoking our creativity.

Painting is romantic by definition. Hence my special interest for the archaic buildings in the old town of Chisinau, for the reflexes on the gladioli, sunflower and roses petals. Following their planes that disappear with the distance and the shadows that dip, I plunged into the structural environment of the shapes together with these reflexes and shadows and I united the mass of the universe with my lyrical emotion.
