Critical Review:
Elena Karacntev and Simion Zamsa
They offer again and again true "performances" of virtuosity and a thematic inexhaustive gamma. Graphics in the artist's acception is a continuous advantage of experiments, maximum liberty of eloquence of expression. They are behaving like a sportive photoreporter always ready to catch the most unexpected "foreshortenings" of the motif which is to be framed, immortalized We face a continuous laboratory manifested with overflowing appetite for large surface worked out in crayoned nuances, filtered for long .
