Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Sorin Dumitrescu Mihaesti

"My art bears no epic motifs insofar as all ontological displays of instances are mere illusions in my opinion. Only the settlements by their oracular purpose and the core embodiments of objects and human beings entail abysmal movements and life. So much the better figuratively assuming that from these embodiments a jester emerges who performs or clumsily juggles with a spoon! However, this overrides the painter’s intent. This occured likewise in regards to the portraits that I have lately been painting. They come solely from within.
I paint revelations and neither of them resembles another. Therefore, I have finally redeemed myself from the obsession of collapsing into Mannerism.
Apart from this, what abides is the joy that I have released myself from the genetic message."

Sorin Dumitrescu Mihaesti

Sorin Dumitrescu Mihaiesti (born in 1961) is a representative painter for the evolution of the Romanian fine arts of the last quarter of century. At first, placed under the sign of the figuration, his painting suffered the specific shifting of the present day art towards non-figuratism, to a sui generis geometrism. It’s not the matter of a shallow geometrism, but a fanciful one, bathed in spectacular chromatic reverberations. But beyond the idea of figurative or non-figurative, his painting is characterized by an out of common feeling for color and an exacerbated sensibility which distinguishes him from the other artists.
Even if in his painting there is a temptation towards a certain decorum, the chromatic solution with its richness of groups, bold juxtapositions and unusual contrasts, now striking, now silent – is the one which dominates. For Sorin Dumitrescu Mihaiesti, the color is the correspondent of his mood; it is an ultra sensitive seismograph which readily answers his mood – sometimes euphoric, sometimes melancholic.
