Tudor Titzoiu

 “...by drawing human beings in their most stripped down forms, Titzoiu points to a shared essence. His practice of abstraction goes further still, to the simplest fundamental elements of representation and perception, perhaps even of reality itself: colour and line. Abstraction in art offers a promise of transcending differences and finding a common language. One can understand the microcosmic world of a well-composed picture as offering an analogy to a well-organized social world, where the good life can be lived.  Looking at Titzoiu’s pictures one might speculate about certain ethical principles behind his aesthetics: a well-composed world has its own equilibrium and harmony, but can accommodate experimentation and happy accidents; contrasts and contradictions are not to be feared, but cultivated and enjoyed; the smallest part should be given the same care and attention as the whole; from certain perspectives, the world has centres, but in other senses, every place is as important as any other; we should recognise and make visible the lines of life that connect people with each other, and the planet they live on; the social world is a work in progress that is never definitively finished. Yet abstract art’s claims to universalism are vulnerable to scepticism and critique.  It is common sense to observe that every spectator will bring their own experiences and preconceptions to an image; there is no one universal meaning that everybody will infallibly draw from it.  Moreover, people’s ways of seeing and standards of beauty are conditioned by their identities and positions in power hierarchies: for example a white bourgeois man might overlook things seen and valued by a working class woman of colour.  With this in mind, I can’t help wondering if the somewhat childish aspect of Titzoiu’s technique may represent (among other things) a form of wilful naivety, a way to impart to his work the innocent universality of childhood, helping it to float on past troubling critiques. “ extract from art critic Ben Pritchett’s essay for the exhibition catalogue, Titzoiu: unspoken lines - no man is an island, 2018, Bristol
