Not only has Dragomir had his paintings in private collections in Europe, Asia, North America (including Agnes Gund Collection) and South America, his work has also been purchased by Bath Spa University and is now part of their permanent collection.
“I use the process of painting to document physical and psychological presence, investigating the communicative function of colour and form as a reaction.
The starting point of each painting is based on some form of narrative, which inevitably informs the course of painting. However, in the process of painting, it is not a question of making ever more references to the narrative, but a deliberate attempt to escape from it. Therefore the paintings may be observed for what they are rather than what they should mean.”
