Check-out AVENUE magazine's review of our booth at Independent 2018

Glimpse on our booth at Independent 2018

"This was my favorite thing I saw, and justified the entire day for me. The objective abstraction of the Romanian artist Alexandru Chira’s whispy drawings and paintings feel like something from the ‘10s or ‘20s. They brings to mind other things as well, like Da Vinci’s notebooks, the art produced by Schizophrenics popular at the turn of the 20th century, or, with their emphasis on strange UFO-like shapes, the contemporary new age movement."

James H. Miller writes about our presentation of ALEXANDRU CHIRA

"Like many others at the fair, Saltz thrilled to Alexandru Chira, the subject of Cologne’s Delmes & Zander’s booth, the late Romanian artist’s first solo presentation in the US. Chira’s diagrammatic drawings and canvases are intricate and obsessive elaborations on his creation of a meteorological monument in his small village in Transylvania, which is still being constructed, that will generate rain and rainbows—the artist’s response to a drought that plagued his village for an entire year."

New York Times publishes Don't-Misses at Independent and NADA 2018

Glimpse on our booth at Indenpendent 2018
Delighted to be among Will Heinrich's "very-best" booths for New York Times

"Continue next door to Alexandru Chira (1947-2011) in his first solo show outside Romania. A professor of painting in Bucharest, Mr. Chira spent years building a colorful installation called “De-signs towards the sky for rain and rainbow” in his native village in Transylvania. A series of hazy but elaborate diagrams and drawings, some on a truncated hexagon shape that he thought would promote the land’s fertility, are dreamily enrapturing.”

Delmes & Zander a Must-See for Director and Chief Curator of non-profit space White Columns 

Garage of Vice network asked Matthew Higgs to name six gallery presentations not to miss. 

"Fair stalwart Delmes & Zander will present, for the first time in the US, a solo exhibition of work by maverick Romanian artist Alexandru Chira (1947–2011). Chira’s visionary practice embraced architecture, design, astronomy, magic, ufology, shamanism, and much more besides; he created a labyrinthine oeuvre that found its ultimate manifestation in the vast, unfinished monument/earthwork he began in 1994 in his hometown of Tauseni, Romania."
