Visual Explorer / Curator / Art Manager
Rudy Von Kronstadt is a Romanian visual explorer involved in the perpetual experiment with image, representation, form and context. In his creative process, he uses different means of expression, from painting, collage, objects, happenings, magazines, posters, movies and texts.
Rudy relates to all mediums in an interconnected way, breaking the barrier between different environmental forms of Art. It is not a question of "what" he represents, but rather "what media he uses to best convey my idea." He sees the process as the new product, so he has become a set designer, modeling his contexts.
Rudy's primary focus is identity, autobiography, history in an anthropological sense, and the exploration of the unconscious. He makes Art because he does not consider reality to be sufficient for the complexity of human endeavors. He makes Art because it's the only thing that makes him feel like himself, and he makes Art a way of discovering the world from inside out.
Rudy's Art is a way of self-discovery, implosion and special mystique. More in the matter of an metamorphosis. Sometimes, he manages to put everything in order, and the Cosmos is complete. Other times, everything goes furthermore into an enigmatic tunnel and the content gets blurred.
His Art explores the energy and the solid. Is it similar to a child playing with a sharp knife, believing is a toy, and his Art does that as he believes that a lot more happens in mind than outside as the mind controls everything. It's between these intimate coordinates that the man is most conscious of himself. Mirroring, the 'hidden' has been his exercise of freedom so far.
Time and form will decide if he shall be remembered for something or not. Art is a necessary human process as it defines the human species; hence Art becomes Anthropology.
