CRITICAL REVIEW

       
        An ambivalent work, oscillating between figurative and non-figurative. The special order (bust of 
Simion Bărnuţiu in Bocşa or the Alba Iulia relief of Mihai Viteazul uniting the three Romanian countries) beneficiates from conventional formulations. In the case of the non-figurative compositions the wood remains his favourite matter because of its expressive potential. In case of some exhibitions he also makes stone versions.
