Szotyory László
Those obscure objects of desire
18. September 2019. - 17. November
Opening: 17. September 2019 at 17:00
Curator: Horváth Éva Monika
László Szotyory’s melancholic, bucolic world is a reality conceived in ecstasy, about which the artist previously wrote: “I paint what I would like to conjure up around myself, the imaginary surroundings in which I live, in which I feel good.” The paintings being shown at this large-scale exhibition represent the slice of his oeuvre in which a style of painting that spans the postmodern traditions from New Painting onwards, is manifest as a form of existence without being. Looking at Szotyory’s paintings, the visitor to the exhibition may get a sense of things splitting away from the cinematographic stories of “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” and “The Elemental Importance of Breathing”, and coalescing into a single, virtual entity, metamorphosing through painting into a physical sensation, and an existential opportunity.
