The Pink Issue
Sometimes we reject pink as it seems the color of girls, of women or men of certain ages, of funny stupid dolls, of posh ladies, kid diapers, little girls’ clothes. It’s a disgrace, a joke, a cliche, a laugh. But, yet, the prettiness of pink reveals, by contrast, a harsh and adult acknowledgment of the serious side of our lives. That’s why Adrian Dica uses pink and post-industrial landscapes and stripes as garbage in his paintings, although at first sight, the association seems meaningless.
