The painting of Marcel Bunea is characterized by the thrift of resources of a strictly geometrical abstractionism, defined by strong vanishing lines dominating the composition, especially in Spațiile permutaționale /Exchangeable spaces. The impenetrable density of the acrylic paint reflects the sharp dynamism of the painterly gesture, which is defined by the straight line and flat brushstroke. Ruxandra Demetrescu
