ART ENCOUNTERS | Appearance & Essence | 3-31 OCTOBER 2015 TIMISOARA | ARAD
The artistic creation of sculptor Rudolf Bone is dominated, at the level of expression, of the choice of the material and the genre as well as of the themes and topics by a constant interrogation about the truth in art, about its caducity and consequently about its function.
The Oradean born sculptor Rudolf Bone is one of the talents of “Atelier 35”, a nationwide young artists’ movement of the 80s generation in Romania. The Oradean section of it made it to the most important artists’ group of the time, cultivating a form of art with experimental character. Constrained to remain “underground” by the communist regime, “Atelier 35” got to deal with the disadvantages, but also the trumps of their status: no financial support – but no ideological and formal interference from the regime either. What emerged from it was an art at western level and with universal preoccupations.
