    Declaration:  To be an artist in Romania is beautifully complicated, painful otherwise and it must be naturally uninterested. As a Romanian artist, one has a great advantage: one can never get bored, because one never lacks inspiration. Only very rarely does one glow or feel the taste of success. Art is an embryo in Romania, there is still long before the development of the fetus and the child that will be born will have an extended adolescence and childhood. Thus Romanian art, following tradition, will need various steps, strength and quality, true parents and, not last, a miracle, until the point when it will achieve an otherwise natural maturity. To be an artist here is complicated because one lives in a transit society, an unstable society where the artist has no statute, nothing supports him, nothing encourages him, nothing motivates him, except for his ambition and his inner structure as an artist. When one is an artist in Romania one is alone on the road.
