Barbara Thumm Gallery is pleased to present the first solo show in Germany by Cluj based Romanian artist Simon Cantemir Hausì. The exhibition will feature selected works on paper and canvas.

The wildly beautiful landscape of the Romanian countryside is one the artist continues to return to, both physically and via his imagination. Sometimes Hausì reconjures scenes from his childhood: images of boys walking through a forest at night, or playing in a eld during the day. At other times Hausì uses the countryside that he is so familiar with as a ground for the gures and animals that come to his mind as he lives and works in Cluj. These works have a visionary quality: the gures often appearing bathed in an otherworldly light, and the animals portrayed in a fashion that reminds the viewer of scenes found in late Medieval and early Renaissance paintings.
