Expressionism in Bronze: The Sculpture of Viorel Farcas
Viorel Farcas (born 1950) brings the tradition of bronze sculpture into the contemporary age with his figurative, expressionist creations. Using a modernist visual language, his serpentine figures and exaggerated forms delve deeply into the emotional crossover from spiritual to physical.
Born, raised, and educated in Romania, Farcas arrived in the United States as a refugee in 1984 and settled in Philadelphia, where he has lived and worked ever since. He received his MFA in sculpture from the School of Fine Arts in Bucharest, Romania, and has exhibited widely in Romania, Italy, Germany, and the United States.
