Nasui collection & gallery representing Romania at Art Copenhagen, the international art fair in Scandinavia

July 2013

Within Art Copenhagen (August 30 – September 1 2013) and during Coepnhagen Art Week, Nasui collection & gallery is happy to present new contemporary Romanian art by the following artists: Radu Belcin, Flavia Pitiș, Felix Deac, Dragoș Burlacu and Francisc Chiuariu.

Art Copenhagen 2013 will take place for the 17th time, and we are looking forward to present 59 galleries from 15 countries to guests and collectors.

Radu Belcin catches attention by new associations of characters, or objects, in a chiaroscuro-painted atmosphere. Starting the quest from the expression of reality study, Belcin explore the identities of the individual and of the present. The frame of such visual exploration is addressed in chiaroscuro. The delight of long shadows elongating in the background, the sparks of light, coming from the scenographically designed spot lights create the atmosphere that leads to a world of dreams or nightmares.

Dragoș Burlacu is balancing in wide range of styles and painting techniques from new expressionism, bad art and realism. Dragos Burlacu perfected a manner of visual rendition, by which he simplifies narration and figurativeness in order to capture the emotion of the characters’ relationships. Burlacu removes the details of portraits so he would not divert the focus from the outlined beauty of the relationships intimately creating themselves beyond the physical presence of the characters.

Flavia Pitis’ art explores issues of identity and isolation. Her painting does not have the function to represent reality, but to make present what is missing in reality. Most times, Flavia Pitiș realizes this by isolating the subject and his confrontation with the loneliness of the chiaroscuro. Darkness introduces the immaterial, but sensitive forms of expecting something indefinable and outlines the aura of a mysterious presence. The universe of Flavia Pitiș’s actions unfolds in rooms without natural light. Painted by using the chiaroscuro technique, these works present actions that seem to be condemned by being made in the dark. In particular, this dark background creates the opportunity for the appearance of glows, flashes and reflexes. There is nothing else to help define space than the shadow cast by the human figure.

Francisc Chiuariu’s latest series “Circle theory” is naturally constructed. Under the pretext of a child playing with a circle, Francisc Chiuariu visually develops a succession of special graphic effects, isolating a character from their shadow. These symbolically spans throughout a game of presences and absences.

In Felix Deac’s works, details and textures are taken from the living and real world in order to create a non anthropomorphical compositional whole. The intention is to provide aesthetic qualities to objects and shapes which would offer the public an unexplained existence due to the illusion of living that he creates.


Art Copenhagen 2013 is held for the 17th time and from this year with a new profile as Denmark’s new International art fair for contemporary art presenting 57 up-and-coming as well as established galleries from 15 countries, from cities like Los Angeles, London, Singapore, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and Rheda-Wiedenbrück. The art fair has developed from a national art fair to the leading Nordic Art Fair – and is now the only International Art Fair in Denmark. Art Copenhagen is still the only international art fair in Scandinavia.

The country list for 2013 is as follows:
25 Galleries from Denmark
7 Galleries from Germany
5 Galleries from Sweden
5 Galleries from Spain
3 Galleries from France
3 Galleries from USA
2 Galleries from Finland
2 Galleries from Norway
2 Galleries from United Kingdom
2 Galleries from Holland
1 Gallery from each Hungary, Singapore, Iceland, Romania and Malta.

Copenhagen Art Week focuses on the best on Denmark’s art scene, and the quality of its art institutions and galleries. The goal is to cement the position of Copenhagen as a capital for the visual arts – a city that embraces art activities with a broad appeal, as well as underground projects. The 2013 edition is on from August 23rd to September 1st. Copenhagen Art Week presents a week packed with activities for art lovers. Guided tours, artist talks and a gallery night – together with the programmed activities of the city’s galleries and art centres – will generate engaging meetings between the audience, art professionals and artists, all taking the pulse of contemporary art.

Nasui collection & gallery aims to circulate its artists and art works on national and international art markets and scenes and to contribute to the sustainable growth of the represented artists’ market values. It is based in Romania and open to collaborations worldwide.
