Originally from Romania\, Mazi lu now resides in France after he could no longer live under the harsh rule of Nicolae Ceausescu. His artwork reflects the complexity and unpredictabi lity of modern society.  Mazilu creates creatures that have characteristics of the human form yet have unnatural details that cause one to pause.  Whe n the artist begins a new piece of art he first lays down figures and shape s and only after he has the abstract form does he begin to incorporate fami liar forms from the world surrounding him.

Mazilu works with opposites w ithin his art: working in a medieval style that mixes with his own contempo rary views\, with dark undefined space to great mechanical detail\, and wit h contrasts of bright forms against dark backgrounds.  His nine-year traini ng in the art of the human form is apparent through his clearly defined bod ies\, yet his own contemporary twist forces the viewer to contemplate the h uman body.  Many of his subjects represent toys as they have mechanical asp ects\, wires and metal limbs\, yet their resemblance to the facial aspects of a human in the face makes it clear these are complex creatures.

\n

Mazilu is shown in museums across the globe i ncluding the de Young Museum in San Francisco and the Sophia Museum of Cont emporary Art in Bulgaria.  He has also shown in various venues in France\, Germany\, Spain\, Holland\, Belgium\, and throughout the United States.

This exhibition represents Mazilu’s firs t US exhibition since the Denver Museum of Art acquired a large painting of his\, so we urge you to cover this timely exhibit of creatures that create the world surrounding us shown in their true grotesque yet fascinating for ms.
