Anghel, the refined southerner of our contemporary art, reads the Hellenism- namely a fragment of his own inner life- in a key which each and every time is his own, of the Danube metic ironically and nostalgically looking at the distant South.
Academician Răzvan Teodorescu
Looking back at the cycles he began in the 1990s and continued working on into the following decade, you cannot fail to discover in these paintings „traces” or „veins” of decadent-crepuscular classicism, which are „unsettled” by their very nature. Their premature presence in the structures of his work appears to herald the „alexandrine cycle”. However, if we compare them with „their alexandrine successors”, these „traces/veins” come across as more subtle and, at the same time, more distinct in terms of pure classicism. By diluting their symbolist-decadent force, they pierce the layers of the work like a capillary system, supplying spiritual substance to the fully mature works.
