Art will continue to be a light in dark times. I’m thrilled to announce that the prestigious art platform ARTDEX from New York decided to feature my artwork Text and Time 113 (Archetypal Head) and my new awarded art concept/movement, the archetypal expressionism, on Instagram. They sent a newsletter about my art to art collectors and art lovers worldwide:
Born in 1952 in Baia de Arama, Mehedinti, Romania, Constantin Severin is the founder and promoter of a new and awarded artistic movement known as Archetypal Expressionism. He is a visual artist focused on paintings, installations, post-literature, and photography. Severin is also the founder of the ‘Archetypal Expressionism Group’ and co-founder of the International Art Group ‘3rd Paradigm,’ as well as a member of the European Artists Association in Germany, and a member of the Ottawa Art Association.
Over the years, the majority of art experts have asserted that only the figurative and the abstract are the only two major paradigms. Yet, with his Archetypal Art, Constantin Severin has convinced the art community that there’s also a third. The archetypes have been used for thousands of years by numerous populations around the world. Their secret power lies in the fact that they are part of everyone’s hidden inner life. Though a new concept, Archetypal Expressionism depicts an immemorial artistic reality, recalling an ancient tradition of art-making. The style is defined by vivid colors, deformities, and a strong sensitivity towards the world.
When talking about inspiration, Severin expressed that: “I had the idea to invent this concept after a serious study of the most representatives Romanian artists of the 20th century, from Brancusi to Maitec and Tuculescu, but also inspired by the works of some Modern masters like Klee and Mondrian as well as by the work of Carl Gustav Jung, who launched worldwide the concept ‘archetype.'” His art is currently promoted by Lavacow international auction house in Bucharest, Romania.
Severin’s solo exhibition “Hierarchy of Light” hosted by Elite Art Gallery, Bucharest, in October 2013 – you can watch a video clip here.
ARTDEX is a place for art collectors, artists, art dealers and curators to manage collections online and connect with one another.
