About George Pavel

Born: November 12th, 1953 in Beidaud-Dobruja, Romania.

George Pavel found a new form of dialogue with the open space, the one which the world famous Romanian artist Brancusi had opened in the early twentieth century. The form has a dialogue with the space, even begins to be movable by itself, through its compositional structure, its dynamic character, adjacent to the infinity.

Due to space as a sculptural element, as moldable material, the sculpture appears open, full of energy.

The aerodynamic forms of George Pavel´s sculptures embody "Lapses" or "Lapse Spirals" made of stainless steel or bronze. They produce excellent aesthetic emotions through the harmony between polished and unpolished surfaces. The dialogue between form and space, light and shadow, is an outstanding feature of the architecture of his works.
The idea is welded into the polished metal, the matter is thus defeated and can reach cosmic size, that allow the connection of a deep earthly object to the infinite space. Dreaming and meditating, the artists experiences the purity and beauty, qualities which he conveys his works. Beyond, the artist gets the self-control of his creative force in the artistic creation.

It is the combination of a poetic gift with the diligence of the work and the respect for the creation itself, which issues these sculptures the strength and dimension to speak for themselves.

George Pavel has an amazingly mature artistic vocabulary.

His sculptures are loaded with tension, energy and vitality. Their message comes from the cosmos.
