        Alexandru Rădvan`s volumetric work presents attributes of the seductive strategies explored in imagology by the archetypal representation of The Hero. Figurative, momentous, expressive, vertical, free of judgment and sometimes incisive, the sculpture elaborated by him refuses the registry of refined sensorial expression through powdered experiences. The raw and grazing message is directly transmitted through an equation in which wood, cement, gypsum or the mixed technique constitute grounds for questioning and understanding the limits of the imaginary.
