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.

...
Gheorghe Fikl ranks among the most impressive post-Communist Romanian artists in terms of the art collectors keen interest in his works and the appreciation of his market rate. He studied at the Cluj University of Art and at the newly-established University of Art in his native Timisoara; his graduation work of 1998 has since been on permanent display at the University.
...
Aided by his exceptional drawing and painting skills, Fikl creates a sumptuous and disquieting visual universe, in series of works of highly symbolic stratification - where powerful and anguished animals - bulls, peacocks, horses, dogs or sheep - are the eerie occupants of surreal spaces, of violent and tragic hedonism, which provide multiple contexts for reflection about the inherent tension of our human condition, in historical and personal time. The theme is deepened in his most recent, large-scale works, of the El Angel Exterminador series, as well as in the first work of the new series he is currently painting, The End of History, shown in a one-night-only preview by AnnArt gallery in Bucharest: they introduce references to iconic cultural models, which Fikl turns into personal visions of existential anxiety and melancholy hope about the loss and recovery of our innermost humanity, in a world so frequently slashed by terror and distruction. With a track-record of solo-shows in Timisoara (of which his latest, in September 2016, at the National Art Museum, has had a decisive contribution to his hometown's successful bid for the European Cultural Capital programme), Bucharest, Luxembourg and New York, Gheorghe Fikl's works have been successful in public auction transactions and and are part of important private collections in Romania, the United States, Portugal, Great Britain, France, Andorra, Luxembourg, Germany. He lives and works in Timisoara and Socolari.
Since 2016 Gheorghe Fikl is represented by AnnartGallery.
