California artist Cris Orfescu has been nominated by an international jury to represent the US at the 5th International Biennale of Contemporary Art, in December 2005, in Florence, Italy.
April 18, 2005
The Florence Biennale is world's most comprehensive exhibition of contemporary art. This exhibition is defined as a wonderful Biennale, with 890 artists from 72 nations participating despite their differences of language and faith, and found a common language in art to communicate their cultural values illustrating Kofi Annan's statement: "Artists have a special role to play in the global struggle for peace. At their best, artists speak not only to people; they speak for them. Art is a weapon against ignorance and hatred and an agent of public awareness… Art opens new doors for learning, understanding, and peace among people and nations." The competition committee estimated the last Biennale’s audience to be around 40,000 attendees. Participation in the Biennale is by nomination only and the artists are selected solely on the basis of the merit of their works, with no prejudices as to style, theme or artistic movement.
Here is an excerpt of a full page article (“Abstract Images of Nanotechnology”) Pasadena Star News dedicated to Orfescu’s NANOART:
“Shouting their presence in loud shades of red, blue and yellow, artist and scientist Cris Orfescu’s images look first like abstract pieces. The colorful curves, angular lines and sudden bursts that command the canvases appear to be the fantastical expression of the artist’s whim and creative taste. Then familiar objects begin to appear in the abstract renderings. One resembles a falling leaf; another could be a bird of paradise. That exploratory process is what Orfescu hopes viewers experience when they look at his work.”
Orfescu’s art can be seen this month in a Visual Art Event sponsored and hosted by La Casa Decor, 1164 Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles.
The event featuring NANOART by Cris Orfescu and PHOTOGRAPHY by Rick Chinelli runs from April 1st through April 30 in the gallery section of the La Casa Decor Showroom opened to public Monday to Friday (10am to 6pm).
Artists will hold a concluding reception weekend on April 29th and 30th (6pm to 10pm).
Admission is FREE.
