Radu Belcin catches attention by new associations of characters, or objects, in a chiaroscuro-painted atmosphere. Starting the quest from the expression of reality study, Belcin explore the identities of the individual and of the present. The frame of such visual exploration is addressed in chiaroscuro. The delight of long shadows elongating in the background, the sparks of light, coming from the scenographically designed spot lights create the atmosphere that leads to a world of dreams or nightmares. Radu Belcin crops the image of faces in “It’s Cold beneath the Moon”, “A Hand Full of Hands”, removes the elements of portrait in “Illusion of a Day”, “58 trees”, “The Wish”, hides the faces in “Perseverance”, “Can We Play”, “Evening Never Comes”, “Blowing”, “Hope Maker”, “Impossible Dreamland”, and “Full of Ideas”. The faces of the depicted characters cannot be seen; therefore not only they remain anonymous, but they also introduce a surreal sense through the surrounding elements. However, there are works where the portrait acquires an identity, i.e. the works where Radu Belcin resorts to his own image, such as “Find Me where I’m Hiding”, “Did You See My New Car”.
