Text from the exhibition curator:

The Honeymoon exhibition aims at emphasizing a two faceted practice.
The well known traditional vacation of the newlyweds, symbolizing the potential of perfect love, finds realistic meanings when switching from the ideal dimension to the one of every day life – a moon in honey not of honey because direct contact with pragmatic reality demonstrates that a honey jar of 700 grams lasts only for 7 days.
The alternative brought to public attention by Ilie Mitrea is simple:
A moon of honey during which the couple sets the basis of a love meant to grow deep and complex, prolonging life into eternity

or

A month in honey crushed by consumerism, destined to prematurely fade in 7 days, dealing with dilemma like 700 or 7000 euros? Romanian seashore or Dubai?

That is why the exhibition opens on the 14th of February, because it addresses to young people, presenting on display a new type of oil painting on wood, stone and canvas and a innovative way of painting-framing, a match for modern, non-conformist interiors.
The exhibition atmosphere created by a number of 30 paintings is enriched by installations meant to put together a must have experience in the romantic calendar of February.
