The artist is present
In his concentric quest for the truthful rendition of movement and expressivity, Ion Mandrescu will often cross borders and stop short of nothing: tense muscles, twisted limbs, curves and turns, building gesture, elastic bodies. Many of his pieces speak of pain in its most intimate yet astonishingly compelling form.
In a masterful twist, Mandrescu makes strikingly realistic limb studies into powerful monumental sculptures: these are no classical bozzetto-like pieces but rather genuinely accomplished works of art.
