As is a used drawing desk or a found drawer board were exhibited in front of us. It is fooling of the eye similar to an altar from middle ages we can see a surface of a fiber bord with an accidental tear or split on a worn out drawing board – it is a contemporary painting. Benjamin Nagy often transforms daily articles for personal use into pieces of art and approaches them from a different perspective. But this time he dosen’t transform the object but he turns the process round and creates the illusion of the worn out object. In the artificial homogenous wooden surface a plenty of random details can be found so this way we can discover the multiplicity and partial in the completeness, and in the common the extraordinary. It is not accidental that the painters choice was an object which plays a main role in the artistic process.

A calm riverbank without any figures. Peaceful, equal light-environment, a stillness before the storm. The abandoned landscape could be similar to this millieu when nobody is looking at it, and nobody is walking among its trees. The grey sky is reflected on the surface of the water and paint it grey or the other way round the wather is reflected in the sky and makes the clouds grey. The meeting […]

A calm riverbank without any figures. Peaceful, equal light-environment, a stillness before the storm. The abandoned landscape could be similar to this millieu when nobody is looking at it, and nobody is walking among its trees. The grey sky is reflected on the surface of the water and paint it grey or the other way round the wather is reflected in the sky and makes the clouds grey. The meeting of the reed and trees in front of the grey homogenous layer splits the surface of the painting in such a sculptoresc way that we can almost feel the sharp leaves of the reed on our skin, and we almost hear the smooth whispering of the poplar trees. The landscape-like feeling and the depth of space is created by the smart use of the painterly tools. Although the upper and the lower part of the painting is painted with the same grey nuance, the painter dosen’t use tonicity or shades, still the scenery gives us a spacious feeling and the landscape appears in our mind. Apparently Zsolt Varga creates his paintings based on our prelearned schemes and confronts us with our visual preconceptions.
