facebook Valeriu Mladin

L-am cunoscut pe Domnul Valeriu Mladin acum vreo 13 ani pe cand lucram la o galerie de arta in Bucuresti. Aflata inaintea plecarii din tara, dumnealui m-a invitat cu caldura in atelierul sau. Atunci am aflat de pasiunea sa pentru fotografie si am vazut camera in care developa singur fotografiile.


Portretele sale de dimensiuni mari in culori vibrante, nu numai ca striga la tine, te si zguduie si te fac sa tremuri la fel ca o piesa de Wagner. Mladin pare sa fi surprins exact clipa in care poate spune cel mai mult despre aceste chipuri. Sunt ca momentele surprinse de camera, fractiuni de secunda unice care nu se vor mai intoarce nicioadata, dar in acelasi timp sunt mult mai mult, artistul schimba aceste fete, le da forta si vitalitate stropindu-le cu toate culorile, le accentueaza trasaturile si le infrumuseteaza schimonosindu-le. Sunt portrete, dar nu niste portrete comune ale frumusetii exterioare, portretele domnului Mladin tasnesc de undeva adanc, direct din lumea interioara.

I saw yesterday Death of an Angel with Bonnie Bedelia by Petru Popescu (Romanian born, currenly living in US). Unfortunately I missed more than the first half of the movie, but I saw enough to get in love with its screenplay: Angel's story couldn't have been told better. His faith and passion are beyond our understanding, but he brings us closer to the truth.


I discovered today a new glass artist. Dale Chihuly's work is brilliant, it is all about glass, but in unusual shapes, brilliant colours and light.
More information and images on Read what he says about Atlantis, one of his commissioned works:
"In one of the more challenging assignments, Sol Kerzner asked me to add my work into a very specific architecture of fantasy. The resort is built to evoke the mythical sunken continent of Atlantis. First were two Mayan temples, Temple of the Sun and Temple of the Moon, expressing all of creation and the dichotomy of opposition-the fiery sun, the cool moon, day and night. For the entrance, Crystal Gate used new forms and glassblowing techniques developed specially for this project. Sol was so happy with these three monumental sculptures that he commissioned a fourth grand piece, Atlantis Chandelier. Complex and graceful, expressing the wonders of all life forms, this one goes well beyond anyone’s expectations of “a Chihuly.” — Chihuly
