Radu Comșa

He was born in 1975, lives and works in Cluj Napoca The idea of “painting overall”, or “expanded painting”, provides a key to understanding what direction is Radu Comșa trying to lead us through. Incorporating divagations, extractions, references, Radu Comșa’s “transcriptions” (from one material to another, from one shape to another, from one conceptual frame to another) are referring to the art object as a form of intellectual replica of the artist’s own design of thoughts. His diagrammatic transcriptions (plates of cast concrete or panels of sewn fabrics which are informed by his interest in modernist architecture, concrete poetry, and atonal music) operate as visual morphemes expected to collide and further release extra meaning.
