"White is the absolute color which reflects light equally upon the whole spectrum creating the feeling of a continuous space. The sum of all the colors or their absence generates white. Hence the obsessive painting abusively over everything. Be it photography, drawing, painting or object, in all of them, this idea is reflected. Hegel argues that "the personality expresses itself in the totality of all actions and their products." "Everything in White" is a continuous exercise, an endless fight with the idealization of things, of purifying the personal memory." (Theodor Moise)
“Lacan speaks about symbolic order where the Ego and its identification belong to the imaginary. For Moise white color is an imperfect, penetrable purifying imaginary. He exorcises, purifies the ambiance with the representation of its own reality. Being aware that white is only the projection of a new beginning. The impossibility of white becomes absolute. The manner of display reminds one of the "objects turned into space", where space becomes profoundly present and the object placement creates a state of space.” (Răzvan Ion)
