The traits of the artist’s work subscribe to the specificity / uniqueness characterizing Transylvanian creators, Nicolae Procopan being born and educated in Cluj. His sculpture is mostly anthropomorphic, playful and poetic. His passion for molding is obvious in mastering his favourite techniques: ceramics and processing glass and metal. The works hold on to the memory of a mythic time’s intimacy. The surfaces molded with sensitivity and talent are sometimes a motif of the mystery contained, just like the Boxes series, and other times they take the shape of the delicate and dreamy couples, in works such as: Couple, Sleeping Couple. The interest for microarchitectural structures intertwines with the ethics of living and mastering an intimate space, in works such as The Circular City or The Boat series. The stylistic influences carry us in the direction of expressive cleansing of the naive form.
