The artist manages to achieve a series of watercolours dedicated to Old Chisinau, each Watercolor in this series is a portrait of an urban, forgotten architecture. By artistic force, Vasile invigorates the architecture of the past giving it a new, artistic flow, with a chamber, slightly nostalgic interpretation.
I cherished this city and as a sign of appreciation, I decided to pay tribute through a series of works. Being attracted to the cityscape, I discovered beauty in the old town area.
In all my works dedicated to old Chisinau I ”ran” from human figures and transport, swarming everywhere, otherwise, they would have gained a reportage character. But I have emphasized the integrity and magnificence of the architectural landscape. For me it’s important to get in the image the mood of a particular place, or architectural complex, not just transpose with exactitude. Of course, if I liked a house I strive to restore the image as I would do a portrait.
In these works, I’m interested in the philosophical, poetic and historical aspects maintained in plastic configurations.
