Calligraphy

In the beginning was the word… the one that initiated the genesis, transposed here into a stylized, flowing representation… seemingly simple to the point of confusion, it bears the already known imprint of the artist of assigning to each work an emergent line… here this line becomes the very essence of the work, a brushstroke, an arc, an intersection where color loses its essence and becomes part of another whole…In its absurd simplicity this completely blue sculpture, clean and restful, becomes an environment in which the word dances and discovers new meanings. Looking into the depth of color we notice hidden disturbances, looking from the inside, things take onnew meanings, transparencies define complicated circuits, and light comes to miraculously complete the whole ensemble.

About the artist

Ioan Nemtoi is one of Europe’s most popular contemporary glass artists. He works from his studio in Botosani, Romania – the hometown where he was born and spent his youth.

Graduating from the Bucharest Academy of Fine Arts in 1991, Nemtoi set out to make his mark on the world of glass art. And with his great skill and singularly unique approach to glassmaking he has certainly achieved that goal.

Nemtoi is especially renowned for his use of colors and the unique marbling effect he creates with multiple layers of molten glass. His exquisite glass art creations including vases, perfume bottles, bowls, candleholders and plates have been displayed in some of the most prestigious galleries and museums in Europe.
