The Opening of "Unmoorings" by Bogdan Luca on June 4th 2010 in Toronto

  Tea and Heartbreak by Bogdan Luca - from "Unmoorings"

 I arrived at the opening of "Unmoorings" at about 8:30 pm.

First impressions – the faint smell of oil, delicately oozing from the canvas of the paintings. A multi-dimensional harmony of composition, a fluidity of colors cascading from the walls of the exhibition in colours I have never seen before.

Or, if I had seen these colors in previous moments of my life, it’s likely I had failed to understand their meaning up till now.

The palette of “Unmoorings” vibrates in a mix of deep blue, cerulean light blue from Giotto’s panoply, pink, red, white, undertones of lilac and shades of black. And possibly many more hues, filtered, throughout the evening, in a melodic space. 

 Hearts of Oak by Bodgan Luca - from "Unmoorings" 

In “Unmoorings”, Bogdan Luca’ s brush moves in a rhythm held in balance by a temperament full of rigor, out of whose shell an unbridled artistic creativity springs forth.

The images of his paintings, of a haunting and wintry beauty, continue to follow me, even as I end this post.
