Sándor Csutoros (1942-1989) was a member of the neo-avantgarde generation of artists who began their careers in the 1960s. His first sculptures were pseudo-archaic basalt figures, his characteristic mobiles reveal the influence of peasant material culture and plant forms. In the 1970s his art became non-figurative. His rows of glass and plastic spheres follow an internal rhythm to build their own independent structure that interprets space. In his Ja-Ko-Tánia series of sculptures cut out with a band-saw and his giant wooden structures in Zala County, he drew on folk ornamentation to express mythic contents.
