Extracts from Dan and Lia Perjovschi: Behind the Line
"Dan Perjovschi’s wall drawings look unplanned, unfinished and even instinctive (and, as such, a suppression of all that he had learned at the conservative George Enescu University of Art in the 1980s). Occasionally, scratching out ‘errors’ in thick black marks, his lines are quick and bold. He writes in English in hasty capital letters, seemingly with little concern for penmanship. Figures, buildings and actions are reduced to a simple graphic lexicon of silhouettes and loose geometric shapes. National and political symbols are drafted in as graphic ready-mades."
"As Lia Perjovschi says, "…everyone has a kind of museum in his or her head, a collection of what we like, what we saw, what we read and, in time, can begin to make a selection. This knowledge is the museum."
