I studied Hungarian folk art and ceramics in college. During this time, I signed up for academic painting and drawing courses where I spent most of my free time. After this experience, I studied fine arts, painting in master’s level at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts where I have been evolving my art through several phases.
Studying art history as part of the course influenced my creative thinking and artworks and opened my perspective. Gauguin’s ‘Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?’ painting made me think about how I would answer these questions in my paintings about life. Later, I found abstract expressionism, especially Mark Rothko and then Agnes Martin inspiring on my journey as well. I also have a strong connection to Frida Kahlo’s outlook and approach to art making.
I usually work on a series of paintings to explore the questions that I am interested in. In this sense, I focus on more universal themes that derive from life experiences, relationships and in general, being human. I am interested in universal themes that may affect all of us with no exclusion such as going through changes, experiencing different emotions, facing mortality just to name a few. I believe that my paintings are pieces of a creative journal reporting aspects of a journey throughout a colourful life in an abstract reality.
Currently, my main focus is the theme of the cycle of life and the acceptance of our mortality with a particular focus on the ‘coincidences’ that occur in life that we cannot control or avoid. This project is backed up with ancient Greek myths.
