The life and the works of Constantin Brancusi are all about that about us all being part of the same, single, universal community: born into a peasant, traditional family in countryside Romania, he come to be known as "the patriarch of the modern sculpture", he made his first artistic steps in Romania, but became famous once he stepped out abroad to learn from and work with the masters of his time, his style is a blend of tradition/old and modernity/new, both in terms of materials (wood and stone vs metal) and motifs (simplicity of Romanian traditional patters vs elegance of modern lines)," said the ambassador.
In this regard, Constantin Brancusi was no doubt engaged in a quest for these collective memories that lie dormant in the ancestral human mind; his interest was with essence, with the world beyond appearances, which is why the very process of sculpting often resembles in Brancusi a ritual whereby layer after layer of the superficial is removed, in order to display the deeper and deeper essences of reality which lie hidden, but always present there, under the surface of appearances, always there for the taking for the sensitive mind and eye and ear and smell and taste.
