Predictable Constructs

solo exhibition at Atelier030202 Gallery & NAG, Bucharest 
October 11 - November 15, 2019

Genu Berlo is processing constructs which underlying foundation is not the intuition per se; he quite actually relegates the latest to a secondary layer, staying on the lookout, being afraid that this intuition could interfere with his personal unpredictable "primitivism". Furthermore, this "primitivism" is more of a mental nature rather than tribal, finding its expression in the sort of "postmodern conceptual artefacts" of land art type (see the sculpture-installation), and in a kind of syncretism beyond currents and times, combining the Lascaux cave painting virtues with a Nolde or Kirchner's expressionistic ability.
