Dreams never End

first solo show of the young Romanian painter Cristian Avram (Alba-Iulia, Romania, 1994)

Boccanera Gallery Trento is pleased to present Dreams never end, the first solo show of the young Romanian painter Cristian Avram (Alba-Iulia RO, 1994).

After the exhibition presented in Milan, in the Boccanera Gallery space, dedicated in particular to the works that focus on the figuration of industrial and living spaces, recalling the typical environments of the Lambrate neighbourhood that once used to be one of the most important manufacturing districts of Milan, the exhibition in Trento will be dedicated on a broader extent to works that portray the human dimension and landscape. In these canvases and tables, the artist analyses a new romantic and introspective vision of figuration.

Cristian Avram's works are closely related to a classical approach of painting. The artist draws from his experiences that have walked in his mind, and through the colour, he creates dimensions that live between an unfinished past and a future to be discovered.

Avram grew up in the countryside near Alba-Iulia, in the middle of Transylvania, and in those places he observed a world of contrasts between rural life and the post-Soviet imagery. Through his studies at the prestigious Academy of Painting in Cluj Napoca, in the art capital of Eastern Europe, he was able to interpret his vision of contemporary painting, broadening the narrative of human experience that is painted through a formula of analysis.

His representation of reality investigates the possibilities that colour offers in the construction of the personal and collective imaginary. For Avram, the canvas is a place of relationships: between colour, shapes, and everyday life. And it is in this relationship that colour dominates powerfully. The complex dialogue between tones and lights take on meaning in an overall organic relation.

Cristian Avram explores the collision between the inner and outer world, an oxymoron that raises a sense of immemorial undated time that hides places of the soul. He wants to probe the possible alterations of the environment: tangible and immaterial, private and social.

In 2019 he graduated in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cluj-Napoca, and in 2018 he participated in the group exhibition Talking about my generation at the Plan B Gallery in Cluj-Napoca (RO). In 2020 he was selected by José Esparza Chong Cuy, former curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA), to present his solo show at ZONAMACO 2020 in the New Proposals section, in the same year he opened his first solo show at Boccanera Gallery.
