“Estranged from Nature” at Zuecca Project Space in Venice

April 17, 2024 | Cosmina Marcela OLTEAN ArtPage

The exhibition “Estranged from Nature” by Romanian painter Ioan Sbârciu opened yesterday at Zuecca Project Space in Venice, Italy (Squero Castello, Salizada Streta 368, Venice, just around the corner from Arsenale). The exhibition is open for visits, from 4 to 6 pm until July 14th.

The artist creates large artworks that are on the border between painting and sculpture, occupying entire walls, generating abstract, infinite landscapes.

"As a painter, Ioan Sbârciu carved a unique path in the history of Romanian art, through this particular ability to orchestrate painting as a continuum field of forces and energies, spread over immense surfaces and complex color networks" - MNAC Bucharest.

"Curated by Maria Rus Bojan and Alessandro Possati, the exhibition offers a coherent overview of his recurrent themes since the nineteen-eighties, inviting reflection on the multiple forms of alienation that correspond to the complex nature of our times" - Sector 1 Gallery.

"The artist manages to use unusual artistic structures by screening, by using curtains of shadowing or exaggerating some elements to make visual his points of view on existence and the world." - Gabriela Rostaș

The exhibition is organized by Zuecca Projects and the European ArtEast Foundation in partnership with Sector 1 Gallery, MB Art Agency, Artewiser Association and it is co-financed by the National Cultural Fund Administration (AFCN) Romania. The exhibition will be followed by an extensive catalogue.
