Gorzo is an artist who defies oversimplification, who scoffs at grandiose notions of a priori truths and instead focuses on art as an active engagement with ideas—both from the perspective of the creator and the viewer. Gorzo’s sculptural language combines modern and traditional in a lyrical way raising questions about the nature of forms: how volume relates to space, what makes an artwork tangible, and the honesty of aesthetics.
Dumitru Gorzo received a BA and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Advanced Studies in Painting from the University of Arts in Bucharest, Romania. He has had solo shows in museums such as MNAC (Bucharest), NJ MoCA (New Jersey), Brukental Art Museum (Sibiu), Kunstverein Viernheim, as well as in art galleries and not-for-profit art institutions across the US and Europe. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions at prestigious art venues such as the Istanbul Biennial, Marina Abramovic Institute (San Francisco), Kunsthalle Budapest (Mucsarnok), MODEM Modern and Contemporary Art Center (Debrecen), and Museum Küppersmühle (Duisburg), and Boulder MoCA, to name just a few. Gorzo lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
