argument de mai bine de un secol se anun când ritos când pasional când cu exasperant neutralitate ­ moartea artei cu toate acestea artitii se încpâneaz s existe s ne ademeneasc într-o lume alternativ ale crei rosturi ascunse nu le putem deprinde decât experiind-o în mod direct convertit la trirea întru art i nu oricum ci în deplin bucurie vasile tolan restituie actului creator ­ exilat de o modernitate secularizat în spaiul derizoriului ­ demnitatea nu îns înainte de a opera o necesar purificare astfel vasile tolan disloc cliee vizuale creditate de tradiia figurativismului destructurând reflexia iconic a realului pân la elementele sale constitutive artistul manifest totui i compulsive tendine de intertextualitate proprii abordrilor postmoderne integrând în discursul su plastic elemente prelevate din repertoriul obiectual contingent fr îns a strui în a le valoriza simbolic ci utilizându-le doar ca purttori implicii de sens asemenea pastei cromatice sau a celorlalte materii folosite în economia lucrrii urmând acceselor unui furibund elan distructiv iniial voina de ordine reîntoarce gândul artistului conducându-l înspre structurri compoziionale surprinse parc în tocmai momentul tainicei lor zmisliri pstrând înc ceva din puritatea increatului cci artistul tie prea bine c vinovat e tot fcutul sfânt doar nunta începutul perfect capabil de precizionismul mimetic al unui desen hiperrealist în virtutea pstrrii unei liberti artistice reale vasile tolan prefer s-i acordeze instrumentele de expresie plastic undeva pe frecvena neo-expresionismului liric abstract nu fr inserii formale de art minimal conceptualism taism neo-dada art informal .a asimilate îns polemic pstrându-i mereu dreptul de a nu fi de acord izbvit de tribulaiile modelor de ultim or de reactivarea unui figurativism sui generis propus de estetica zilei artistul îi continu imperturbabil i dezinvolt investigaia plastic meninându-i ferm propria opiune stilistic convins de eficacitatea ustensilelor sale elementare în srcia lor afiat dar manifestând o detaare aproape chirurgical artistul cotrobie sistematic în pliurile secrete ale subcontientului sondând în epicentrul micrilor sufleteti revolta uimirea confuzia refuzul atracia pacificarea îi au ecoul în dispunerea materiilor din care vasile tolan îi plmdete lucrrile ­ adesea nefiind vorba doar de procedee pur picturale artistul mizând pe expresivitatea de limbaj a colajului sau chiar a instalaiei totui chiar i atunci când se lanseaz în tridimensional lucrrile lui vasile tolan pstreaz un pregnant caracter grafic linia se desfoar într-o gam valoric nebnuit de larg testându-i limitele expresivitii pata se încarc de vibraiile texturilor stabilind tranant jocul de plinuri i goluri culoarea survine cu eficiena unui spot publicitar în sprijinul ansamblului compoziional dând tonul i cheia în care urmeaz a fi descifrat partitura vizual a compoziiei conectat la energiile primare ale materiei îns defel strin de aventura spiritului vasile tolan îi practic arta sa cu deplin onestitate ca pe o suprem form de reconciliere cci oare care este în fapt menirea artistului a artei fie c recunoatem sau nu aflai în faa operei de art inevitabil cutm s ne regsim pe noi înine ateptând cu înfrigurare s ni se transmit acel ceva inefabil care s ne apropie s ne împace în regim de urgen cu propria fiin cu universul cunoscându-l pe vasile tolan realizezi c întreaga sa oper artistic ine de chiar modul su de via de natura sa provocatoare polemic prin ea ne conduce pictorul cu bun credin pe calea sa spre art fcându-ne prtai printr-un exerciiu spiritual dificil la bucuria fr egal a creaiei autentice argument for more than a century now the death of art has been announced either categorically passionately or with an exasperating neutrality however the artists are stubborn to exist and to lure us into an alternate world whose hidden meanings we can only comprehend by experiencing it directly converted to living onto art and not anyhow but in total ecstasy vasile tolan is restoring dignity to the creative act exiled by a secularized modernity within the space of the derisory ­ but not before operating a necessary purification thus vasile tolan is displacing visual clichés credited by the figurative tradition de-structuring the iconic reflection of the real into its constitutive elements however the artist is also showing compulsive tendencies of intertextuality characteristic of the postmodern approaches absorbing into his plastic discourse elements drawn from the contingent objectifying repertoire without nevertheless insisting to value them symbolically but using them only as implicit bearers of meaning like the chromatic paste or the other materials used in the economy of his work after the outbursts of a furious initial destructive impulse the will of order reverses the artist s thought leading him towards compositional structures which seem caught as if in the midst of their secret conception still preserving something from the purity of the uncreated as the artist knows full well that guilty is all that is created and sacred only the wedding the beginning perfectly capable of the mimetic accuracy of a hyper-realistic drawing by virtue of preserving a genuine artistic freedom vasile tolan prefers to tune his instruments of plastic expression somewhere to the frequency of abstract lyrical neo-expressionism not without formal insertions of minimalist art conceptualism tachisme neo-dada informal art a.s.o assimilated polemically though and always preserving his right to disagree redeemed from the tribulations of latter-day fashions from the revival of a sui generis figurativeness proposed by the present-day aesthetics the artist is imperturbably and off-handedly continuing his plastic investigation firmly holding on to his own stylistic option convinced of the efficacy of his tools elemental in their stated poverty yet displaying a nearly surgical detachedness the artist systematically rummages through the secret folds of the subconscious exploring the epicenter of the movements of the soul the revolt the amazement the confusion the refusal the attraction the pacifying all echo into the disposition of the materials that vasile tolan moulds his works from ­ which more often than not does not involve only sheer pictorial techniques as the artist relies on the expressiveness of the language of collage or even installation however even when he plunges into the threedimensional vasile tolan s works preserve a conspicuous graphic character the line unfolds itself into an unexpectedly broad scale of values testing the limits of its own expressiveness the touches are laden with the vibrations of the textures vividly settling the interplay of the fullness and of the void the color displays the efficiency of an advertising spot to support the compositional ensemble supplying the tone and the key in which the visual score of the composition is going to be deciphered connected to the primeval energies of the matter yet no stranger at all to the adventure of the mind vasile tolan exercises his art with total honesty as a supreme form of reconciliation as we can actually wonder what is exactly the purpose of the artist of art either we admit it or not finding ourselves in front of a work of art we inevitably seek to find ourselves again anxiously waiting for that ineffable something to be conveyed to us in order to come closer to reconcile ourselves urgently with our own being with the universe getting to know vasile tolan one realizes that his whole work of art depends on his very lifestyle on his provocative and polemic nature through which the painter is leading us in good faith on his own path towards art sharing with us through a strenuous spiritual exercise the unparalleled joy of genuine creation georgeta djordjevic 13
