Meeting of worlds – in real and virtual spaces – in works by Márton Barabás, Erzsébet Katona Szabó and István Orosz
MÁRTON BARABÁS, painter and sculptor is participating in these exhibitions mainly with sculptures and installations. He focuses on temporarily filling the space with sculptural means which he achieves with endless loops of branches having a square cross-section, and spatial lines. In his works the winding tendrils begin to seem like spatial paradoxes.
The works of textile artist ERZSÉBET KATONA SZABÓ are characterised by networks, pierced surfaces and the bold use of space. Symbols, inspirations and memories appear in this space in the special, organic frame of leather that is sometimes amazingly soft, at other times taut. The textiles embodying space, timelessness and continuity convey a message to those who seek the secret, ordained ways of the soul.
Graphic artist ISTVÁN OROSZ uses traditional graphic techniques but his images show a world obeying its own laws that differs radically from the visible world. Illusory spaces, unusual perspectives, ambiguous figures. The surface may appear playful but anyone who tries to follow the artist down the steps of his dimensions can easily take a wrong turning and be lost forever.
Opening of the exhibition at 5 p.m.
March 21 – April 11, 2008
