Text from the curators:
Brukenthal National Museum invites the general public to an exceptional exhibition comprising 34 works in trompe ľoeil by Michael Lassel, considered one of the masters of this technique on the fine arts scene of the 20th c. (alongside Jacques Poirier, Henri Cadiou and Pierre Gillou).
The detail and accuracy of the drawing in the paintings are a statement vs. digital art, describing an arc in time between the contemporary art and the one created 200 years ago, looking for similarities and differences in the perception of the world from a realistic, idealistic or surrealistic perspective in, often misleading, sensory boundaries (trompe l'œil being an artistic technique used in painting to create the illusion of three-dimensionality)
The compositions express erudition, an opulent pleasure to live and an interest in knowing the perishability of everything that is alive and material.
Michael Lassel, an artist from Logig / Ludwigsdorf (Mureş County), lives and works in Fürth, Germany. Part of the 2017 Brukenthal Bicentennial cultural program, the exhibition is organized on the occasion of the 27th meeting of the German-Saxons in Transylvania.
