SAMSARA, a SURREAL GRAPHIC ART exhibition, DRESSED IN COFFEE by Marian Simon, a Romanian surreal graphic artist and student of Marcel Chirnoaga a genius of surreal art had its opening today at the “Tower of council” in Sibiu, Transylvania, Romania.
The exhibition is part of the International Theater Festival in Sibiu (FITS) and will be opened to the public till 1 August 2018. Details at FITS website.
The visual art is accompanied by SURREAL poetry made by Jack Simon from Israel.
“I have never been a coffee drinker, but this didn’t stop me for being fascinated with its color, the vintage color of elegance, refinement, the classic, the oneiric, the dream, the subconscious, of psychoanalysis and, ultimately, of surreal art.
The term “samsara” is tightly connected to the notions of “avidya” and “karman”. Samsara designates the circuit of existence in the world according to the formula birth-death-rebirth. The beings are reincarnated according to their past- life deeds and this life is followed by another. This fundamental law of transmigration (samsara) is based on Indian philosophy and religious beliefs.” – Marian Simon
The wash tint of all the artworks in this exhibition is nothing but COFFEE and Marian uses on the coffee background INK with a bit of white acrylic to finalize its graphics works of 100×70 cm that were part of SAMSARA exhibition at Renaissance Art Gallery, Bucharest in May 2017 and to create smaller works for the move of SAMSARA in Sibiu in 2018.
The rest is art, philosophical thought, surreal graphics, coffee and the silence of dreams.
