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.

The exhibition “VOLTO” is dedicated to an old, large, at the same time familiar and enigmatic subject: the face.

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.

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.

by Paul D’Agostino Dumitru Gorzo's new body of paintings, an exquisite and compositionally electric series the Brooklyn-based artist produced while visiting a remote studio outpost in his home country Romania, evidence him taking his characteristic, indeed unmistakable mark-making into formal territories as relatively uncharted as the isolated, mountainous landscapes that surrounded him as he worked.

by Gábor Kaszás The selection of the venue for Ádám Kokesch’s exhibition titled Backup is by all means to be regarded as symbolic. The memorial museum of the first Hungarian apostle of avant-garde and constructivism serves as a hot venue for presenting a collection which ultimately builds on that tradition as well. Kokesch’s well-known “technical [...]
