Mihai Topescu – glass

Venue: Cotroceni National Museum; Address: 1 Geniului Blvd.

Running through January 11, 2011

The Medieval Halls of the Cotroceni Museum host the “Mihai Topescu – glass” exhibition. Critics define Mihai Topescu’s art as “a constant wavering between Christianity and the lay spirit. The originality of his works lies in the extraordinary fusing of symbolic substance with the secular, while both are defined against a cultural dimension deeply-rooted in reality”. In his turn, the artist describes himself as follows: “I was born on the same realm and under the same sign as the great Constantin Brancusi, except 80 years later. I live and work in the sacred space that he opened in my birth town, Targu Jiu. His spirit was a guiding light in my life, but it hasn’t influenced my work. I am most grateful that Brancusi didn’t choose glass a medium of artistic expression”.
