The Visual Artists’ Union from Romania is pleased to announce the launch of the latest issue of its main publication, ARTA Magazine, with a thematic issue on Art & Design coordinated by Gabriel Decebal Cojoc.
Press release of the Visual Artists’ Union from Romania:
“There is a beautiful structural similarity between the Art-Design relationship and the double helix of our DNA; a paradoxical evolution that unfolded in parallel and simultaneously in interdependence; a synthesis dynamics in which we can see elements that come into contact, are combined and are united by bridges, thus forming new complex structures. There is the assembly stage or the Fusion moment. Subsequently, there is a process of dispersion, when the elements get further away from one another, seemingly needing recoil to analyze the result or the newly created bigger picture. There is the Diffusion stage, a particle flux, a gradual mixture and homogenization; then, the passage to another level. The environment of creativity and ideas, obviously fluid, is also the environment in which design is developed, where, exactly like a chemical mixture, links are being done and undone through affinities and exchange of energy values between parties.” Gabriel Decebal Cojoc
