"The Fall", Mircea Suciu's second solo show in New York, will include 13 of the artist's recent paintings on canvas. This time, Mircea Suciu proposes a pictorial discourse extended into the meanings of a Camusian disenchanted world, in which the human order proves many times unjust and precarious.
A grim faced man perches precariously on a stepladder, leaning forward as if to dive toward the floor. A pair of women dressed in the fashion of the fifties stand with their backs to us, apparently engrossed by the blank gray wall in front of them. A man in a brown suit and fedora lies curled in a near fetal position on the ground. These scenes, the creations of painter Mircea Suciu, are realized with muted colors and presented in settings devoid of detail. The titles (respectively Final Speech, The Abstract Painting and Nightmare) are as enigmatic as the images.
