Energiák és visszhangok

Dumitru Gorzo új különleges, vibráló kompozíciójú fest­ ménysorozata - amit a Brooklynban élő művész szülőhazá­ jában, Romániában alkotott, egy elhagyatott műteremben – a művész eddigi összetéveszthetetlen kézjegyeit olyan – aránylag felfedezetlen – formai területekre kalauzolja, ami az őt munkája közben körülvevő hegyekhez hasonló. E nagy vásznakat inkább a heves kivitelezés, mintsem a puszta festés hangulata, inkább a később megzabolázott és megfaragott féktelen rétegezésé és az energikus kompozícióé, mint valamié amit elképzeltek, megterveztek, majd kiviteleztek. Bizonyos mértékig általában is ilyen Gorzo alkotói gyakor­ lata. Akár fest, akár szobrászkodik vagy rajzol, hajlamos ta­ pintható felületi nyomokat hagyni a folyamatok rétegződését illetően, és engedi a sokszor rögtönzött kezdeti jelöléseikkel, hogy kompozícióit a legkiszámíthatlanabb, absztrakt alakok és furcsa teremtmények szféráiba kalauzolják, ahol szerves torzulatokként, technikailag valószínűtlen építményekként és felszerelésként jelennek meg. Védjegyének számító nyári szőlőzöldje, türkizkékje és finoman deres, lágy rózsaszínje légies háttértorkolatot alkot, amiben mindenféle apróbb, sötéten karcolt szubjektumok rohangálnak összevissza az alig artikulált középszintű háttértartományokban. Előtereiben gyakran ugyanazok a színek expresszív csepp­ ként vagy kromatikus fröccsentésként jelennek meg, kitöltve holttereket, átszivárogva azokon robusztusabbá, őszintébb kontűrűvé, fizikailag bizarrabbá, mégis valahogy szimpati­ kusabbá téve az alakokat és a formákat. Új munkáiban Gorzo barlanglakó festői ágenssé válik Guston és Bosch természetfölötti öntudatával. Más szavakkal ez itt a szokásos Gorzo felcsavart hangerővel és energiával. Az ember szinte hallja ahogy a figuratívan idéző visszhangok ide-oda ugrálnak hegyein, völgyein, erdein keresztül. Paul D`Agostino Fordította Marthy Barna


Energie și ecou

Energies & Echoes

Noua serie de picturi a lui Dumitru Gorzo care are o com­ poziție deosebită și care a fost creată de artistul care trăiește la Brooklyn în România într-un atelier uitat de lume, îl călăuzește pe artist pe teritorii ale formei relativ necunoscute care sunt asemănătoare munților care-l înconjoară în timp ce lucrează. Pînzele astea mari sunt caracterizate mai curînd de pictatul temperamental decît atmosfera pictatului în sine, mai curînd de compoziția energică decît de planul imaginat anterior pictatului. În general așa e exercițiul creativ al lui Gorzo cel puțin în parte. Poate picta, sculpta sau desena, el arată straturile procesului, și lasă markerile pensulei să-l călăuzeze în sferele cele mai greu de anticipat, unde mișună figurile abstracte și creaturi stranii. Verdele-strugurii de vară, albastrul de turcoaz și rozul lin creează un fundal delicat în care diferite subiecte schițate aleargă de-a valma. Deseori în prim-plan aceleași culori apar ca picături expresi­ ve sau injectări cromatice, umplînd spațiile moarte, stre­ curîndu-se printre ele și transformînd figurile și formele în unele mai robuste, mai bizare, și totuși mai simpatice cumva. În noile sale creații Gorzo devine un agent pictural cu încrederea de sine al unui Guston și Bosch. Cu alte cuvinte asta e Gorzo cel obișnuit, temperamental, vocal și energic. Aproape că îl auzim cum tresaltă ecourile sale figurative prin munțile, văile, pădurile lui.

Dumitru Gorzo's new body of paintings, an exquisite and compositionally electric series the Brooklyn-based artist produced while visiting a remote studio outpost in his home country Romania, evidence him taking his characteristic, indeed unmistakable mark-making into formal territories as relatively uncharted as the isolated, mountainous landscapes that surrounded him as he worked. These large canvases have an air of being fervidly executed rather than merely painted, of being impetuously layered and energetically composed, then reined in and hewn as opposed to envisioned, planned and produced. To an extent, this is much like Gorzo's creative practice in general. Whether painting, sculpting or drawing, he is wont to leave readily palpable traces of his procedural strata at the surface, and to allow his often extemporaneous approach to initial mark-making to guide his compositions into most unforeseeable spheres comprising abstracted figures and curious creatures, or what might even register as organically inflected, technologically implausible architectures and machinery. His trademark summer-vine greens, turquoise blues and subtle blanched, softened pinks come into atmospheric, airy confluence in his backdrops, in which all manner of smallish, darkly inscribed subjects. In many of his foregrounds, then, these same colors are deployed as either expressive drips or chromatic bursts seeping through or filling in interstitial voids in much more robustly marked, candidly delineated, physically bizarre yet somehow sympa­ thetic figures and forms. With these new works, Gorzo's painterly agency is that of a cave dweller with a preternatural awareness of Guston and Bosch. In other words, this is Gorzo as usual, yet with the energy and volume turned up a notch. One can almost hear all of his figuratively evocative echoes bouncing about throughout mountains, forests and valleys.
