"...artists are probes in parallel universes, satellites exploring alternative existences…"
Born in a small town in Romania, Florin built his first camera out of a shoe box. His early work survived only in his imagination. Presently he lives in St Marys Ontario where he pursues his lifelong passions: fine arts painting and photography, philosophy, astrophysics and quantum mechanics.
Finding beauty in truth and truth in beauty is at the core of Florin’s work. He is an explorer, fascinated by the evolutionary timelines of civilizations, the slow decay of societies, and the laws of nature that affect everything from molecules to galaxies.
"My artwork tells a story, with each painting part of a larger narrative. They cannot be separated and I hope one day I will have them all in my own museum."
That dream became a reality a few years ago when we bought a house in the town of St Marys, Ontario. In the unique space called Art of Ideas one can find all of Florin’s major works as well as the objects and writings that inspired him.
Each room is permeated by the belief that together arts and science should discover, promote, imagine and test the frontiers and boundaries of knowledge and artistic expression.
