[The Purple Word] :: Horia Osorio (2005)
Horia Osorio physically engages the surface of all the abstract works; even if it deals with currently important themes like revealing of past and present in the light of future expectations, world or nature realm. This is the crucial fact we've to realise, and this broader concept of creativity is Horia Osorio's concept of art. There is the immediate visual, three-dimensional impact, the obvious material function of the panties is re-interpreted and transformed to communicate a spiritual, intellectual and psychological message of art as dialogue and as cross-cultural interaction; we are faced with what appears to be a direct transcription of the impossible. The statement remains obscure until the juxtaposition of all art works in a continuous collective revelation process, each image emerges as a kind of performance of applying paint, rubbing, erasing, sanding and reapplication until the moment of completion. Horia Osorio's objects are typewriters, sausages and human hair; together these elements form within their layering an illusion of architectural dimensionality which never denies its inherent flatness. No conclusions drawn, however. Through this, it relaxes our impulse for a historically conditioned static viewing of this abstract work.
