Despite the importance of aesthetics in art, Mircea Suciu is pretty insistent on hammering home a certain theme. Click and you’ll see what we mesan. A hammer might be the wrong description of Mircea’s tools, since most of his work is made with charcoal, and which lends itself to his particular artistic soapbox.
His most recent exhibition took place at Aeroplastics (an incredibly forward-thinking Belgian gallery, located in Brussels) and was entitled “Black Milk.” It seemingly referred to the ooze exuded by the work, and dark, yet important commentaries on the follies of humanity. Whereas some are perplexed, Suciu seems fascinated; uncovering in single scenes the gravity of social constructs involved in being human. Informed by any shadowy art of the past, his images are metaphors for the way humanity sticks its head in the mud, in country after country, and generation after generation. Luckily for us all, we have a sociological mirror by which we can view what we’ve built; it’s called “art”. Mircea Suciu is doing his fair share.
