Lighter Than Air

Vispo Collages

Valery Oisteanu

... an artist-poet with deep roots in the avant-garde of the 20th century. His art is neither soundless nor still, but rather visual poetry with narratives in unfolding time, harmonious compositions that unite samples of memory through the histories of futurism, Dadaism and surrealism. Haunting, humorous and metaphysical, his collages communicate the inexplicable, the impossible and the sublime, exploring the subconscious domains of imagination at the edge of fantasy.

Oisteanu is an internationally recognized authority on Dadaism and surrealism. He has published over 100 essays on the avant-garde (e.g., in Brooklyn Rail, artnet.com, NYARTS) and lectures on surrealism at various universities and forums in the United States and Europe (e.g., the University of Connecticut at Hartford; the Global Surrealism Symposium, Bucharest; the Dali Centenary, Figueres, Spain). Recently he participated in a roundtable forum on Hedda Sterne at the Jewish Heritage Museum in New York.
