Known as a representative personality in the contemporary art, not only in Romania, also in the world, Corneliu Ionescu is part of the great family of geometrical abstrac-
tion; his conceptual option expresses a personal sigh with symbolic loads, bearer of a spiritual message, result of an interior explora­tion. These geometrical forms are associa-
ted oneself with a chromatic refinement, which is evidence of the intensity of the force of his artistic elements in a pure and free manner, wishing to transmit directly his personal emotions.
