“My painting depicts reality – my reality. This also encompasses my idea of nature, which is in turn an expression of this reality. I see nature as a presence in painting that is archetypical and not illustrative.”
As a starting point for creating his images, Hosu often uses self-made recordings from his own family albums which capture moments like summer walks in the woods, sports events or trips with friends. However, according to the artist, the basic reference of his art is almost exclusively the relationship between figures and landscapes (natural space). He is interested in the magical moment when a figure moving in the landscape becomes almost one with the natural space and seemingly dissolves into its surrounding environment. Hosu strives to represent and express this endless fusion of figures and landscapes. In his compositions, figures and landscapes not only merge, but also enter into a symbiotic relationship with each other where the existence of one is unimaginable without the other.
