Be there | Romanian sculptor Ciprian Hopirtean show opening in Thessaloniki

Monday, March 7th, 2016 - Myro Gallery is happy to announce the opening of its new exhibition section "Greek Marble Initiative Showroom" with an exhibition of its signing member and an established Romanian sculptor Ciprian Hopirtean, on Thursday the 10th of March at 20.00. The artist will be present. In addition, the Romanian consulate of Thessaloniki has been invited and is expected to honour the event with his presence.

The gallery issued a statement of the artist, who is guiding us to his work: "The creation of a sculpture starts with an inner tale, which in fact is its soul. The dualities that create personal myths and simultaneously harmony and contrast are many - time and space, man and woman, light and shadow, positive and negative, filled and empty. The creations of visions demand their fulfillment to a whole, which includes the vital energy of art and offers freedom from the earthly bonds. Marble is a material filled with memories connected with the concept of evolution of space-time-volume. The basic geometrical shapes have traditional semantic meanings. In this new cycle of works I continue to explore the dynamic shape of triangle and its presence in space. In addition I insert a new form of interest: the sphere, an ancient and universal symbol which represents unity, fulfillment, infinite, the Universe. New shapes emerge from it with different personalities. Related with the symbol of water, it is a reminder of vital fluids, of the lightness of the touch and of the absolute beauty. I search the inner truth of the form, its equilibrium and movement as parts of a whole that is vital for the morphology of the idea. The harmonic symbiosis of all elements in the sculpture, combined with the light that surrounds it, are necessary for its geometrical deployment in space. Face to face with Time, I am trying to offer to my compositions clarity and a transcendental energy referring to the collective subconsciousness about the concepts of creation of life and infinity".

The show will last till April the 16th, 2015. Find out more at
