A long reflection on the immensity of heavens, the beauty of the landscapes and the melancholy of flowers. An experiment on the skies without boundaries in all colors and in all splendor. Color, space, light and darkness. These are just some of the symbols that you will find reflected in the works of the watercolorist painter Teodor Macari.
Born on March 13, 1960 in the village of Mîndreşti, Telenesti district, Republic of Moldova, Teodor Macari started his studies at the "Igor Vieru" high school of art in Chişinău and then attended the Institute of Fine Arts in Tallinn, Estonia. He was a doctoral student at Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and from 1989 he began his career as a professor of painting and composition at the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design at "Ion Creangă" Pedagogical State University in Chişinău. In 2005 he became a member of the Union of Plastic Artists, Chișinău and member of the Union of Plastic Artists from Romania.
He has made personal and group exhibitions, participated in creative camps in Tallinn, Campina, Bucharest, Ploieşti, Buşteni as well as at the "Brâncuşi" Exhibition Center in Chişinău. His works are part of the collections of the Art Museum in Ploieşti, Romania, the National Museum of Arts of Moldova, but also in private collections in the Republic of Moldova, Romania, Germany, USA, Macedonia, Lithuania, Poland, France, Switzerland, Australia and other countries.
In his works, 19 of which are displayed in the exhibition, the watercolorist paid close attention to the sky. The artist said that he felt closer to the sky by painting it. "This is how I build my way to heaven. My heavens are not real; they are those of my imagination".
On 4.11.2018, Teodor Macari's heart went beating in the heavens he loved so much and knew how to paint them so beautifully in our hearts.
