MAKE IT NEW
Liviana Dan

Sebastian Moldovan creates structures that are not directed by the system. Sebastian Moldovan practices a personal, sincere and uninvolved modernism. Something sujective and anonymus decides the mechanics of an isolated movement.
 
Sebastian Moldovan’s  objects don’t confirm their existence to the viewer. You see them, you think you see them...

The artist practices a type of engagement based on experiment – trust – vision. To which he adds a necessary seduction. The subjects are places and objects made by man / doors, rooms, furniture, constructions, layers, gardens../ Sebastian Moldovan possesses an enigmatic apreciation of the house and of the garden. These are spaces and places psichologicaly changed, with a transcendental geometry and a graphic attention, presenting in detail the outlines of one single object.

Slowly, the athmosphere changes itself. The things on and made out of paper, the plants, the old objects receive inevitably the references of an acute technology. The meeting is again enigmatic. The surface and the image have a continuous solidity. Singular objects, with recurrent paterns. A dense materiality, together with a translucid imagery.

A clear part and a few methaphors. Many other dimensions are involved, secret lives and an infinite realness.

One can argument the choices Sebastian Moldovan makes, but not his philosophy.
