Members of a band lying on the grass, surprised while they are taking a post -concert nap.
The canvas set the pace to an approach that intends to obtain contrasts, strong and clear masses. Florin Stefan is an analyst painter; the subject is a sufficient pretext to rethink the landscape, with its resistances, delicacies and sharpness such as this vast area with a large plan, instruments scattered and intense background. It's a section of nature colonized with simplicity, which becomes admirable thanks to the exposure of so many distinctive elements.

Two neighbours surprised on a landing, embracing eachother and kissing. The scene is seen from the opposite passageway. Thus, the composition become a long distance look more than a neutral opposite building, and the architecture a spectacular image.

In Russian Geisha, Florin Stefan manipulates themes that are dear to him: The female nude and the reinterpretation of classic pictorial scenes. Here, one can recognize a revisiting of the Déjeuner sur l'herbe with a resolutely modern touch and staging. As often with Florin Stefan, the subject matter ultimately takes a back seat. The eye is drawn to the painting itself, in this case, the still life with the plastic bottle in the foreground or the large kitschy floral tapestry that serves as a backdrop.
