Grenci's is both a declaration of continuity on the one hand and an essay of modern contamination on the other. The use of bitumen, for example, with its thick response, seems to contradict this search for expressive fluidity. Quite the opposite. The only apparently heavy imprint of bitumen adds depth and poignancy to the work, giving it a sort of further permanence after the first glance, dominated by the dilevations of the use of watercolour acrylic. Grenci combines different suggestions with wisdom and lightness: between face and matter, between revealed beauty and its origin, between matter and its transfiguration, in a contradiction of thrusts and motives, of references, quotations, allusions.
