Exhibition of a PHD student artwork

The Hypnothalamus exhibition presents Lucian Stanculescu's artwork. From December 2 to December 20, 2011, BU Gallery, 20 Avenue Gaston Berger, 69100 Villeurbanne.

Hypnothalamus combines the flow of dreams with the hyperlucidity of pure thought. The creations are dual, both metaphor and possible evolution of real beings in an eccentric reality. To live in such a realm one needs to first survive the cataclysm of adaptation, which always leaves its deep imprints in the mind and body of these creatures. This creates an exotic and violent beauty, that of life continuously menaced by extinction and forced to regenerate itself at each step.

A self-taught surreal artist, Lucian Stanculescu uses drawing, painting and sculpting, in both traditional and digital media, to create visual metaphors. The inspiration for his subjects comes from themes like the passage of time, mortality, perfection, determinism and their opposites, but his works also present an aesthetic and more abstract side, linked to the geometry of objects, the calligraphy of lines and the flow of colors.
