LONDON.- Blain|Southern announced the representation of Romanian artist Mircea Suciu in London and New York. Universal Fatigue, the artist's first exhibition with the gallery, opens at the New York space on 17 January 2020. Suciu is also represented by Zeno X Gallery (Antwerp).

Part of the Cluj School, Mircea Suciu (b. 1978, Baia Mare, Romania) is regarded as one of Romania’s leading artists. Predominantly working in acrylic and oil paint combined with monoprint techniques, Suciu depicts solitary figures or groups—sometimes state and religious authorities—in sparse surroundings and caught in moments of inner conflict. Suciu grew up in an area of Romania loaded with historical conflict and came of age during and after the 1989 revolution. Fascinated by what he describes as ‘the absurd actions of man’ Suciu explores human foibles and existential problems in his work, pointing to the psychological terrain of his subjects.

In one series of paintings, Suciu’s figures poke their heads through windows or into boxes, appearing to search for a way out, or their faces are otherwise obscured, suggesting states of alienation. The artist mines imagery from 1940s and ’50s advertising, reducing down the elements and adding symbolism, sometimes inflected with dark humour.

Works by Mircea Suciu have been included in the Timisoara Biennial (2017); Vilnius Painting Triennial (2016); Gwangju Biennial (2014); Prague Biennial (2009); and Istanbul Biennial (2009). His paintings have been included in group exhibitions in Kunstmuseum Bochum, (DE); Weserburg Museum, Bremen, (DE); Museum Beelden aan Zee, The Hague, (NL); Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Colorado, (US); Espace Louis Vuitton, Paris, (FR); Fondation Francès, Senlis, (FR); Maison Particulière, Brussels, (BE); MODEM Center for Modern and Contemporary Art, Debrecen, (HU); and Mucsarnok Kunsthalle, Budapest, (HU).
