Originating from his life's vicissitudes, Mr. Simion MUNTEAN'S paintings tell of the dramatic character and struggles of a life which was burdened with hardship alike a fight in the arena, where most of the weak should be overwhelmed by the strong. If he was weak or strong,
it is only for the posterity - Time's implacable imprinting machine - to decide. Nonetheless, one must recognize this: that he never gave in, whether in times of weakness or strength, and at the turn of half of a century of struggle, his dramatic passion emerged. A chromatic symphony, in which spots of colour compete with each other, and the never-ending waltz leads the viewer's sight, gliding it along the labyrinthine mélange of emotions visualized by means of rough touches against the naked and fragile thigh of linen canvas. This brutal erotic game of colours excited imagination and made it flow as impetuously as a river springing from the brush of a restless artist. A flux of extenuation pouring gradually into the sea of tranquility and settling through exercise all the struggle and the existential crisis of this - I should say - dramatic painter. An dramatic painter, who displayed on canvas the image of an inside where the incessantly boiling volcano erupts at times with the intensity of a Cyclopean force. The overflow of colours resulted in the disintegration of the whole, which came to be perceptively mirrored in the details, fragment by fragment, idea by idea, twilight with dawn, death with life. This is Simion Muntean, who was born in Oncesti, in the province of Maramures, Romania. He should well deserve the our modest scrutiny.
