Stunning paintings by Dan Voinea.
really lucid… In the dreaming-sense.
these are incredible
Very cool, reminds me of Adrian Ghenie.
I really liked the last one, before I realized that the man sitting on the bench is NOT the same man that is hugging the girl… However, why not? Why cant he be? Maybe he IS the same man, but in the future? If so, If the artist WANTED to capture this idea, wow. Wow. Wow is all I can say because that paints SO many pictures beyond this image in my own imagination, my own mind. Beautiful paintings, the whole lot. But that last one, before I saw the different shirts, before I realized it might not be the same man, wow, I was wondering just what the man is thinking while he sits reflectively on the bench, watching the memory of himself hugging that woman. Was he having an affair? Has he fallen out of love with her? Does he only love her mind, but find her body unattractive, or repulsive, the reason why only her top half is present in the painting? Did his wife lose her body in combat? Does she have lou gehrig’s disease, and is she losing control of her bodie’s muscular system? ALL of these paintings really make you wonder what was the artist’s original idea? WHY this, HOW COME that? Beautifully rendered, wonderfully intricarte and forever interesting. :) I wish I werent living on a working boy’s income, because I’d give a toe for a print of that last painting. Beautiful! Bravo! :)
LOOK, at.. FEEL- the fat pockets of the businessman as he walks away from the bench of homeless drunks, addicts, life-losers, etc.. SEE the older man, looking back at his past, his youthful memories of himself at different times through his life, atop his NYC apartment complex roof… How riveting, the couple whom met in modern day combat in the middle east, and lost their limbs together, but they attempt to live normal lives.. The American Dream. The man stumbling and falling UP the stairs, was once a respectable stock trader on wall street, but his addictive personality got the best of him, and he can now be seen stumbling around the subway stations, drunk on what little money he has left of his *once* millions. My silly little interpretations after taking another look. Thank you, artist, for sharing these with us. They are truly beautiful and imagination and thought provoking! :) They are wonderful!
There is something strangely sinister about these works. I like it.
These are almost painful to look at especially the first five, really loved all the interpretations offered above!
