Art of Mózes Incze
Philosophy of series “Recombination”
“There is no permanence in the age of built on sand identities. I need to find out what to do with the combination of parts of different proportions and shapes, unless I rest in disintegration. Strange rhymes are born this way, I know, but the joy of building something compensates me.” — Mózes Incze, 2019
Art of Gábor Nagy
Just as the former figure drawing that gives character to the expressive figures has become through the years a sensitive system of lines (showing the texture of the soil /human texture/ made up by velvetlike pencil technique, and often expressing the organic breathing embodiment of a landscape engraving) that highlights 3D dimensions in plain aspects, so has the painter-graphic artist’s thinking deepened gradually. Besides the (illusory?) defence power of the carefully constructed grass cathedrals that directs sociographic reality towards sacral dimensions, they shock with the strengthening of the inner spiritual territory. Little, horizontally or vertically positioned colourcases, undeniably construction-directed, show the multiplication of the sensual sources (sensuality growing like cells) inside the drawing, as if nature cracked by a scalpel would carry in itself the threatening nuclear cloud in the proliferative greenness of the leafage, whereas the leafage above the life resources is nurtured by a swarming root-multitude. Despite their fine system of lines Nagy Gábor’s alarming ’landscape research’ are in fact ’human parables’. — Lajos Szakolczay, artistic writer
Art of Ivan Lardschneider
Imbuing his work with references to playthings and just a hint of pre-pubescent immaturity, Lardschneider’s pointed yet playful approach proves remarkably efficacious: a concise survey incorporating the objects from our youth. The emotions and nostalgia these objects portend frame a potent look into the human psyche as found through the artist’s oeuvre. His sculptures, simple in form yet trenchant in their observation, form a lexicon of emotion and vulnerability.
Recalling Pop Artists such as Andy Warhol and Michelangelo Pistoletto along with the stylized figuration of Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti, Lardscheider hones in on his singular style with a simplified color palette and straightforward textures. Figures are marked by their stillness or incorporate simple gestures into their pose that reveal an underlying simplicity. Poses are childlike, silly yet wise, operating with an innocent and guileless logic all their own. Witty, provocative and poignant, Lardschneider distills the essence of both animate and inanimate forms into intuitive compositions both humorous and thought-provoking.
