Who is Gheorghe Fikl ?
An artist from Timisoara, graduate of West University Timisoara, Painting department (after a couple of years at Art University in Cluj, before the department was established in Timisoara), Fikl exhibits until the 13th of March "Bulls and Chandeliers" in Bucharest, at the "Posibila" Galery (nr 6, Popa Petre str.) Suggestions of piety on angels faces, carnal, sexual and violent torments, associations of bulls and curtains, of ripped calves hanging from the vaults of some San Pietro, a sheep with placid expression watched over by angels, chandeliers and photographic effects, horse fur used as canvas and grand dimensions, 2 by 2,85 m. The gallery welcomes you warmly, with colored walls, with Fikl.
Beyond the "psychologists who could explain any of these", Fikl reports each of his intentions, including the election of the support, at the theme he identifies with the rhythm of the entire creative gesture, found in each work, the red thread offering providing cohesion to a certain substance, as to the whole as well. As in music! Nevertheless, music is part of his speech whenever he mentions painting.
Gheorghe Fikl is a new artist at the "Posibila" gallery and among other exhibitions in Bucharest. A specific technique, coming from another zone and another artistic dynamics. Fikl seams like an exotic character-mystery and surrealism. After all, we have come across an individual with a lot to say, and the best way he can express it is on the canvas, endowed with the necessary power of visual expression, and with the boldness of the outcast.

Gheorghe Fikl "Labyrinth"
Gheorghe Fikl (b. 1968) is a Romanian artist from Timisoara, where he graduated from the painting department of West University, Timisoara. His striking images and the violent tones, in which the antagonistic symbols of absolute piety and aggressive carnality explore each other from a distance, and reveal a permanent and almost unbearable psychological tension that focuses especially on a "no one's land" in 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.
Fikl's group shows include "Against All Odds," Slag Gallery, New York (2008); "Group Exhibition," Dana Gallery, Iasi, Romania (2007); "Exhibition Organized by the Romanian Cultural Institute," Romanian Embassy, Paris, France (1999).

Fikl's paintings are the overlapping of different worlds, a collage of contrasts that reconcile, where the irrational ensemble is drawn from that superposing of things belonging to different regimes.
