" Katabasis "
Price - 2.000.000    USD
print on canvas: $ 7.000
oils on canvas ~ 36 x 72 inch        (  91 x 183 cm  )
Katabasis is one of the most complex themes aproached by the artist. Katabasis comes from the Ancient Greek: κατάβασις and it is a descent of some type, such as a military retreat, or a trip to the underworld.
The trip to the underworld is a mytheme of comparative mythology found in a diverse number of religions from around the world. The hero journeys to the underworld or to the land of the dead and returns, often with a quest-object or a loved one, or with heightened knowledge. The ability to enter the realm of the dead while still alive, and to return, is a proof of the classical hero's exceptional status as more than mortal.
The artist sees his immigration from Romania to US as his own Katabasis governed by a lot of struggle, but a needed process.
The artist wouldn't have been able to come up with the idea of this painting if he didn't leave his country and swim with the sharks.
Alex Săndulescu tries to create some of the most unique paintings that have ever been created.
