He likes on one hand to analyze the process of metamorphosis, of first well-defined forms into new esthetical dimensions. On the other hand Raduta studies the meaning of usual objects, finding special balance of forces, new perspectives of interaction that transform common issues. It might look like playing games, but the game is mature with much depth. The materials he uses are mostly, glass fiber, plaster, special tissues.
