The painterly style of Ágnes Lorincz is loose and bold, sometimes even applying tones of pop-art. As for her subjects she is interested in the superficiality of fashion opposing the deepness of human feelings. Naturally, the painterly technique has an important role in her art, which is often progressive, experimental in mood: the usage of textiles as collages is a contrast to the smoothness and precise effect of painted surfaces.

Katharina Roters is preoccupied with the sensation of the human body, its limits and construction of space and time. According to her interesting working method, she lays her large size canvases on the ground, sits on it, and paints her own body-parts with a help of a mirror, using her rich palette like pixels. Due to this method the traditional perspective, as seen by our eyes, is loosened.

The linking between the painterly views of the two artists is best caught in the idea of the mirror – as shown in the exhibition’s title. One of them holds a mirror to the sheer appearance and made up world with models, referring partly to the superficiality of fashion and look, too. The other uses herself as a model to submerge into her picture’s surfaces and the abstracted image of the body by physically using a mirror. As a matter of fact, both of them are primary mirroring the perceptible sight and vision with different techniques but common purpose to serve the picturesque.
