At first sight, a blunt crate. Though only in appearence; behind this appearance is unrolling a simbolistic that puts us face-to-face with an architectural psychosis, specific of the communist regime. The crate is hanged on the wall of an appartment from a block of flats built in the midst of the "Golden Age". The agglomeration of geometrical forms that one can see inside the crate is nothing else but the replica of the gray and repulsive labyrinths of flats, that represents the final product of one of the most morbid urbanistic experiments in the history of the romanian communism. "Crate" is the first painting in my series entitled "How to Create a Crate" or "Excursion in my own house". It shows a traditional approach to the oil technique, the colors have a low saturation and a great range of values.
