Text from the exhibition curator:

Restoration expert with the Brukenthal National Museum Restoration Laboratories, Constantin Scărlătescu comes for the second time as an artist to exhibit inside the Museum’s halls, his previous exhibition entitled “Windows towards God” dating back in 2014.
On this occasion, the works on display bring his new perspective on the light and shadow contrast and on colours and shapes.
The 40 items comprised by the exhibition are paintings on canvas or wooden panel as well as objects modelled in different techniques by the use of metal, textile and plastic in the pursuit of colour-shape, light- shadow combinations, ranging from decorative to the life-sized characters. In evincing his subjects, the artist makes use of suggestion and contrast.
The exhibition concept is to be found in the fact that light and shadow are interdependent in plain and relief, colour and shape.
The works are illustrating images that lead us to contrasting conditions and feelings resonating differently with each and every on-viewer, opening the way for free interpretation.
What Constantin Scărlătescu achieves, by using various technical means, is to create his visual concept: the light and the shadow are meant to coexist, none of them being possible without the other.
