Roman Tolici – Milk. Honey. Blood.
“The ensemble of works was carried out in two main artistic techniques: thus, Honey and Blood series consist of oil on canvas paintings, while Milk consists of epoxy resin objects.
The name of the solo show also gives the correct interpretation order of the displayed sequences, as follows: first, the Milk epoxy resin series, composed of objects containing each an allusion to the divine stage of existence, refers to the religious scale of values of the humanity; second, the Honey group of paintings (subtitled Ten, in accordance with the number of characters appearing in the background landscapes), alludes to the personal track and to the content of life of each individual in itself; third, the Blood paintings series relates to the problematic of death, each artwork symbolizing one of the main themes concerning the fear of death in its universal understanding.
The conceptual framework of the Milk. Honey. Blood. solo show by Roman Tolici focuses on bringing into discussion three of the most important inherent dimensions in the human existence: the moment of birth identified as the moment of choosing your religion, the stages of life as centralized numerical decisions leading to unlimited possibilities in our personal growth and, our final perspective, the fears and visions we all experience at the terminal point of departure”.
