Patrick Nicholas Tayler Zita Dávid’s paintings provide poetic images that give the viewer an inter-subjective experience. The barriers of the self are questioned as the observer is driven to look through the artist’s eyes, becoming personally involved.
Nicolas Eber The essential subject of my present writing are the paintings and linocuts of Hans Mattis Teutsch and his until present not yet duly recognised and interpreted tree-representations. With regard to that the reader of these lines could soon raise the question, why am I going in that case here below to stay with the general discussion of anthropomorphism and especially with the representation of the animal word in humanised form in the literature and art-painting?
Tayler Patrick Nicholas There is a type of beauty at play here similar to the aesthetics of scientific photographs, which alienate and disembody the observed object. This is the “sea change” of the close-up: when what is in front of us turns into “something rich and strange” just by the sheer fact of our proximity. The dichotomy of strangeness and familiarity is also at stake in Makai’s personal iconography, letting every element become identified as something similar to claws, leaves, shells or gems, but never precisely named and thus remaining ambivalent: somewhere between the unknown and the materialised.
Patrick Nicholas Tayler DLA INTRO is an annually organised exhibition with the aim of introducing the new Doctor of Liberal Arts students of the University of Pécs, and to exhibit the latest developments in the ongoing endeavours of the upper-graders. DLA INTRO is also an event that hosts the concert of the doctorate institution’s music department, further enriching the exhibition’s scope. As a group exhibition that displays diverse artistic practices, it creates a space of discourse for the question of what art is, its expansive nature - and thus its ungraspable definitions.
Tayler Patrick Nicholas Temporality plays a key role in the work of Dávid Utcai. Drawn to the sonic structures of techno and electronic music in general, Utcai investigates how materials create an ambient of visual signs. According to József A. Tillmann techno is one of the contemporary forms of the sublime – that is: an overpowering presence, a loss of self-definition, a combination of beauty and fear.
Patrick Tayler The exhibition of Florian Lang and Klára Petra Szabó is currently on display at the Austrian Cultural Forum Budapest. Titled Blue Sunday the collaboration presents an intricate combination of traditional and unorthodox painterly methods, video- and light installations and a migration of motifs between images that use diverse strategies to establish and break illusions.
Patrick Nicholas Tayler Ákos Ezer’s current exhibition presents the artists’ most recent artworks that depict the reoccurring motif of the stumbling man. The methods which Ezer uses to construct his paintings are partly inspired by the technical tools of kitsch, neo-expressionistic figurative tendencies and digital modelling. These form an inherent part of the discourse surrounding contemporary painting and also define Ezer as an artist deploying multiple visual strategies.
Lorand Hegyi The exhibition “VOLTO” is dedicated to an old, large, at the same time familiar and enigmatic subject: the face. Given the unique, significantly personal, principally singular, unrepeatable, irreplaceable, in-exchangeable character of the face, it is almost inevitably identified with the external appearance of a person, with the image of an individual.
Nicolas Eber The anthropomorphous character of the painting reproduced as figure 4 is entirely obvious and doubtless, whereby already its title alone reveals the relevant intention of the painter, namely the symbolization of the extreme cruelty of the war in question. He is thereby simultaneously delivering a clear proof of the fact that the anthropomorphous representation of animals in other context and in general is not unfamiliar to him.
Ferenc Margl I only create acrylic paintings; however, I am now exploring how to incorporate other mediums into my work, for example, elements of the natural environment. My moving art video is currently the only piece of work that shows multiple forms of art.
