I Edinburgh

'1 The mighty steel sculptures in

; downstairs Demarco have been

surreptitiously sabotaged with bricks

and stone shoring up their shiney

runners. They have been docked in the gallery. Remove the keepers and goodness knows what might happen.

1 People might want to jump up and rock

' on them. There is that temptation even

now. Or they might rock over a

carelessly placed foot. Danger. Fitting tightly into the narrow white room, the

I steel circle seems sprung like a

i metronome, ready to click into motion

at any moment. Scientifically, it is

I possible to harness physical energy—

1 Paul Neagu proves that it is equally

1 possible to harness spiritual and

city‘s past. Pottery. metalwork. glass and food remains will be in the display which looks at three main areas. the (‘athedral area. the former (‘ollege Goods Yard in High Street and the Franciscan friary to the west ofthe High Street.

creative energy to great benefit. Upstairs, those sculptures Edge Runner, Starhead, Double Hyphen and the rest are drawn up in large portraits of surprising colour and size. Together they are like a city of shapes, a whole civilisation mapping its space in time. Their names reflect their personalities. It is simple. They are what they say they are. A-Cross is a cross. An Open Monolith is an open arch. Its abbreviation DM is om, the word of meditation. Neagu's philosophy may be mysterious but it is not unfriendly. Hts creations embrace the thoughts of others as carefully as they do his own. Neagu’s hyphen stretches out like a backbone for his art. His stars reach up. In each he finds an infinity of combinations just as man can be

multiplied a million times without one body every being the same. In each he finds a powerful personality which puts paid to abstraction. There is no sense of avoiding life in his work.

It is over ten years since Neagu made his first hyphen and twenty since he met Richard Demarco. tn the late sixties and early seventies, Demarco was not so much an impressarlo but a pioneer, moving about the culture of the Eastern block and scooping it up for Scotland. Behind that curtain he made rare discoveries. Neagu was one of them.

In 1968 Neagu left Romania for the first time, travelled in other East European countries and ended up with a six-month passport to stay in Scotland in Demarco’s flat. He exhibited with the Demarco Gallery for the 1969 Edinburgh Festival and at about that time decided, now over 30, to leave Romania for good. Though London-based he has continued his friendship through arts journeys and exhibitions since.

During the early seventies, Neagu came to terms with his new existence by founding the ‘Generative Art Group', five artists including the designer Philip Honeysuckle and the poet Anton Paidola. Unbeknown to the Arts Council who was funding the group, all five were Neagu himself. It was a clever and witty way of unlocking the characters which came to exist out in the open in his sculpture and drawing. (Alice Bain)
