Text from the curator:

Constantin Severin presents a selection of 27 oil on canvas paintings and a bifrons painting/installation entitled "Janus", representative for the concept of Archetypal Expressionism theorized and promoted from the beginning of the present century.
According to the art critic Iulia Mesea: “The fascination experienced by Constantin Severin in relation to the archetypal shapes resides in their complexity and profound meaning, in a determinant eternal feature that, in the same way the music is, enchants but cannot be translated into words without diminishing its aura. Eluding the figurative through the use of pictograms and ideograms – reminiscent of the old ways in graphic communication –, the artist aims at connecting with the deepest human resources of perception, at relating with the pure levels of our unconscious, at establishing correlations and contextualize, opening the dialogue between different levels of the past and the present, issuing new and unexpected integratory constructions to which the on-viewer feels to appertain: the archetypes have a secret power because they were used by large groups of populations during thousands of years and now partake to our inner secret life.”
