This series builds on the antagonism between the chaos of nature and the order of the mankind.The vibrating disorderliness of bushes, branches, blades of grass on the one side, and the tranquility of the other. Transparent geometric forms and the orderliness of squares clashes with disorderliness. The prints of tree bark made with frottage technique are similarly chaotic and disorderly. The series, Hommage Hantai, was made with pillage technique and examines the forms of various materials when they are creased before painting.
The genetic of images mean that the new works always originate from the ones that already exist. The process commences with the selection of a particular detail. Then, the detail is taken out, enlarged and finally complemented with new motives. The genetic trace remains through all the steps while the role of abstractions and gestures is increasing. The series was exhibited under the title, Picture in Picture, in 2014, in Győr, at the Rómer Flóris Art and Historical Museum.
In the course of the continuous exchange of information, it often happens that diverse themes can be observed simultaneously as they are getting close to each other both in time and space. Within speculative realism, I examine what happens to our perception of the reality when things are purposefully placed in unusual environments in the form of montages. Great events of the world and different forms of art (art history, dance, music, film, traditional costumes, television, images from the internet, my own paintings) are merged and turned into an inspiring unity.
These works present the fine and distinctive movements of the creating hand and its fingers. The motives originate from the art of handicraft and put over each other in transparent layers. While they are all different, they share the same quality and value. Eastern calligraphic symbols are brought together with the lace motives from Halas.
My experience as a primary school teacher is that the manual skill of students has dramatically decreased in the last decade. Less and less manual work is needed as the new visual tools, computers, graphic applications, and robotics are gaining momentum. The traditional art activities (e.g. drawing, painting) are being neglected as the number of art classes in the schools are decreasing. In order to compensate these negative tendencies, my colleagues and I developed an art program and with the help of foundation established the Leonardo Art School.
