Artworks signed by Stanciu send the viewer to expressionism through the range of colors used, and sometimes by the intensity of artistically avowed feelings.
“What do you think an artist is? ...he is a political being, constantly aware of the heart breaking, passionate, or delightful things that happen in the world, shaping himself completely in their image. Painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war.” ― Pablo Picasso
Since the apparition of abstract art, figurative term is used to refer to any form of modern art that retains strong references to the real world and particularly to the human figure.
Abstract art seeks to break away from traditional representation of physical objects. It explores the relationships of forms and colors, whereas more traditional art represents the world in recognizable images.
A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person.
Răzvan Stanciu painting, with vigorous nervous strokes, seems to take all in possession. Temperamental, with an aptitude to an expressive side, even an expressionist side of the motifs, Stanciu paints figurative and abstract with acrylic contrasting powerful colours. Victoria Anghelescu
