Towards 1980’s Ionesco starts to distance himself from the theatre in search of another language which translates better the images born from his imagination or from his unconscious own mind. Fully aware of the danger of becoming the prisoner of his own clichés, Ionesco makes out of painting his favourite activity, essential for his interior and spiritual journey. Never really abandoning his writing, Ionesco finds in painting a new form of expressing himself, but one which transforms, little by little, in an equivalent system of expression and becomes only a temporary subterfuge against l’angoisse de l’être. Writing and painting have always been for Ionesco two ways to go behind reality, to access the pure world full of light of childhood.
