Between December 20, 2021 and January 20, 2022, at Galleria 28 in Timișoara, it will be possible to visit the exhibition “Little representative of the Universe”, organized by the NOIMA group, together with Maria Pașc. The exhibition brings to the public’s attention a Land Art work made in Șirnea in November 2021 by the members of the Noima group: Ciprian Bodea, Cosmin Frunteș, Dan Gherman, Andrei Rosetti, Sorin Scurtulescu.

Maria Pașc, art historian, notes about the exhibition “Little Representative of the Universe”:
“Constantin Flondor, a knight of Flondor, has two passions: geometry and poetry. Coincidentia oppositorum: What is Constantin Flondor’s snowflake if not overflowing poetry in geometric rigor? Poetry untouched by the geometric rigor that shapes it!
Constantin Flondor, poetic in nature, is geometrically demanding of himself and his art, in a way that evokes Kant to us: I think of them: the starry sky above me and the moral law within me. ” (Immanuel Kant, Critique of Practical Reason).
Constantin Flondor is a knight of the spirit unparalleled in the world. The deep meaning of this word, see spirit, he decomposes it to recompose it and gives it a saving meaning – the life-giving Spirit. And so, on the canvas, he builds celestial architectures. Snowflakes – rays of splendor fall from the sky. Constantin Flondor is in love with Eminescu and geometry. Eminescu: “The Byzantine cross is like a snowflake, a small representative of the universe” (Mihai Eminescu, Fragmentarium). The fabric of the snowflake is ineffable – divine irradiation. What else would the snowflake be than a subtle, poetic sifting? Byzantine Cross, small representative of the Universe
Friendship established under the name Noima: Ciprian Bodea, Cosmin Frunteș, Dan Gherman, Andrei Rosetti, Sorin Scurtulescu. A group without manifestos and programmatic pleas, surpassing individual aspirations, managed to give a collective significance, gain adherence and record solidarity conquests.
Noima is a coherent group through the balance and artistic maturity of the five painters who make it up. What is meant by Noima? Strive to reconcile technique and science through in-depth study.
The approach of the five painters, performers, to signify, at Șirnea, the earth with the sign of the snowflake is the reverence before the one who is their director of artistic consciousness: Constantin Flondor. “The work of the hands and thoughts of the painters of Noima speaks in this exhibition about gratitude and joy. Dark tones, the overall note of the exhibition is of a white serenity. In our contemporary art, Noima can make up a current or even a generation, that’s how well the five painters are well placed, in life and profession. “
