2010 Artist in Residence
Leonardo Silaghi, Untitled, 2010; oil on canvas, 84 x 120”
Summer 2010 Artist-in-Residence: 23 year-old Leonardo Silaghi's first solo painting exhibition in the United States.
Silaghi's large scale paintings are based on a photographic reality, which is later distilled by means of abstraction. This combination leads to images that are both indistinct and coherent at the same time. It is in this complex way that the artist easily crosses the line between abstract and figurative art.
Silaghi was born in Satu Mare, Romania and currently lives and works in Cluj, Romania. He studied at "Universitatea de arta si design" (University of Art and Design ) in Cluj- Napoca and received his MA in painting at the same university. Silaghi had a recent exhibition at the Laika Gallery in Cluj.
