Zsolt FERENCZY

Resident Art Budapest

‟I’m making paintings about nature and at the same time I reveal something about the nature of painting. The images are loaded with information meanwhile the landscapes are artificial. As soon as I find an unspoiled landscape I try to ’pollute’ the idyll with barriers or with seemingly functionless buildings. I convincingly present familiar and unfamiliar elements side-by-side in my works. My landscapes, figures and objects seem to be landing upon us from a parallel universe, which is well-known and alien at the same time. I include references to current issues (such as barriers, for instance) in my imagery without being didactic – I just simply acknowledge the bare facts of our circumstances. The works often reflect the history of civilization’s ambiguous relationship with the land. The landscape proposes questions about the identity of the viewer and raises questions about their cultural roots.”
