Adriana Lucaciu

 

 

(Romania)

 

 

 

Adriana Lucaciu has a special appetite for assimilating various and complex styles and techniques, which gives her expressions a certain “exoticism”. The artist uses a wide range of graphical means of expression, from drawing to easel graphics and printmaking, in the tradition of the graphism of intellectualist origin, refined and encoded diffusely in graphic sequences in which the careful and detail-oriented eye can discern enough references to her artistic and cultural ontogenesis. Although the artist has a plastic module/pretext of anatomical forms, tendencies to abstractionist speculations are also visible in her work. It is precisely this capacity to merge different types of plastic discourse into a stylistic unit, defining her personality and creative thinking that Adriana Lucaciu’s expressive force resides in.

ADRIANA LUCACIU – EMBODIMENT

 

The plastic exercise of the “Embodiment” that Adriana Lucaciu proposes can be considered one of continuous refinement of the creation act. This act has been “moved” from the area of the visible sign to that of a conceptual endeavour. An endeavour – the term “irreversible” should be added here – that has taken by itself the path towards the most mysterious, and I should also say the most recent spiritual concentrations. If an exercise of utopian nature allowed me to take the artist’s place and if I were the creator of the “Embodiment” series, I should change its title to “A Voyage to the Frontiers of the Body” or “A Voyage to the Borders of the Visible”. And while I imagine all this, I also think that most likely neither of the titles I have come up with can cover the whole meaning that Adriana Lucaciu has given to her plastic structures. These structures are deliberately modest and consciously conceived as ephemeral, a reflex of what was once called arte povera, but nourished with symbolic essence and impregnated with religious-sacrificial connotations. The artist does not seek for the latter on purpose, though she discovers them in the same natural manner in which she draws – and breathes, I might add. This is precisely the reason for which the art she proposes is free from any rhetoric or “ideological programme”. It is as if, by displaying her “Embodiment”, Adriana Lucaciu takes us by the hand and leads us to the innermost corner of her studio, to a privileged observation point from where not only the artist, but also any of us can see the first day of Creation. What Adriana Lucaciu offers is, etymologically speaking, an Apocalypse, nothing else but a “disclosure”. The signs on the drawings that Adriana Lucaciu sets in front of our eyes speak for themselves at the smallest undulation of the canvas, at the faintest breeze.

DRAWING – THE TWO SIDES OF INTERPRETATION

 

Adriana Lucaciu’s research on drawing is based on the practical experience of an artist for whom drawing has already proved its essential dual nature: to belong, as a gesture, to the inner, non-mediated dynamism and to be, of all visualisation devices, the most adequate instrument of conceptualisation. But is this duality so radical?

Is drawing, truly, pure spontaneity when it follows inner ardour – or inner depression (whose witness art, being equally eloquent, can become)? Or is it rather a graph for decryption and interpretation, like an ultrasound scan or a seismogram, providing the basis for evaluating the energetic flow – already a transfer from the area of pure instinctual drives that some late modernist directions may have sought for obstinately, to that of mimesis, therefore of observation? The basis for writing, for the graphical encoding of a discourse that is already coded in language, in speaking, having its own set of stereotypes indispensable to communication, drawing establishes, in complex and hermetic (like the hieroglyph) or ordinarily particularised signs, the richness of the synthetic contents that links – no matter how complex the significance of the discourse is – the simplified verbosity of the speaker (the orator or the poet) to a virtual, anonymous public. It is enough to remember the opinion about the spoken discourse and the written text that Socrates elaborated in Phaidros. Drawing has a neutral function in this case, all the more so because the text is several transcriptions far from the dynamism of the original hand and not even picto-poetry concerns itself with this aspect   that lettrism recalls only casually. […] The reflection on the expressive and conceptualising capacities of drawing advocates the disclosure of the motivational support of the artist’s personal explorations. From this perspective, artist Adriana Lucaciu is perfectly aware of the possibilities of her set of creative instruments, lucidly choosing a certain quality of the medium she employs, nevertheless trying to go beyond the determinism of her lucidity through spontaneity which becomes a purpose in itself. Intensity, tension, unformulated ideas tend not only to find their expression, but also to being captured within the sign that is already a code, a conceptualised reference point, in order to provide creation with identity. This self-exploration (typical of postmodernist self-referential strategies) that shifts from the general – the language – to the most restrictive particular – the speaker, provides a kind of stateliness based on true experience, commitment and attraction that the disclosure of privacy involves. And for the contemporary world the privacy of the studio has become as exciting as any of the great narrations linked to spontaneous action.

The new horizon that Adriana Lucaciu suggests for understanding the art of drawing has a dynamic structure marked exclusively by matters of language, environment and affect.

 

The possibility to revive the real world in order to project her inner self into the absolute aims at recovering at least a small part of the edenic state. Her drawings have an acute sensory dimension that is almost tangible and very fragile. They exclude neither particularisations nor excursions into the realm of psychology, however abstract these may be as a result of schematisation. One could speak about languages of existence, explicit forms through which the world could be assimilated.

The body seen as an environment, as the paradigmatic and absolute form of the human with its halo of magic and ideality, is cut up from the transitory substance, employing all the functions of contemplation. From guilt to reconciliation with the world, half terrestrial-half eternal, extremely laconic beings that are so close to abstract symbols vibrate in front of the existential mystery. Such symbolism suggests the intimate sphere of poetical expression that is ascribed to drawing — the thinking of the shape through reverberations of the original paths and soft aerial volumes — in the substratum of the sensitivity and vision that define Adriana Lucaciu’s lyrical state and capacity of dramatic articulation bordering on a crisis. The crisis of the incandescence of modernity beyond which anything is possible, including combustion, deconstruction and deterritorialization.

 

Adriana Lucaciu’s drawings are much more than denotations applied to concepts. They are cultural points of reference.
