Translucent Reality – Exhibition of Ábel Szabó painter

Tuesday April 3rd, 2018

The paintings of Ábel Szabó made mostly during 2016-2017 depict the urban topics that we have got used to seeing from him with completely new techniques, by swapping the timeless view point to the momentary one.

The paintings of Ábel Szabó made mostly during 2016-2017 depict the urban topics that we have got used to seeing from him with completely new techniques, by swapping the timeless view point to the momentary one. In order to get a photo-realistic way of looking at things the intricate method of using the brush has been changed to the method of paint applied in stains and wiped on the canvas, dynamic brush prints are used and the brave solutions of composition, and also the treating of the surface is applied also that is based on doubling. The artist allows himself to switch between the intricate and roughly worked surfaces and enjoys the spontanious spacial relationships created by effecting each other and this way he is not afraid to make the observer insecure either. Relating to the Hungarian painting traditions, he totally recreates his own sight and the sight of the social, economic and cultural changes depicted in the sight of the cities at the end of the 2010s.

Curator: János Schneller art historian

Exhibition: 10th April – 25th May
Open: Tuesday-Friday 1pm-6pm

Newly published Resident Art Catalogue

Thursday December 21st, 2017

Although I consider that ‘art belongs to everyone’ is an overused commonplace, I still hold that contemporary art is a public good. This stands true even if facts seem to prove otherwise. Besides showcasing its own visual artists, the aim of Resident Art is to broaden the contemporary art scene, offer guidance in current trends of art, facilitate engagement with art through personal experience, and lastly, to raise awareness of […]

Although I consider that ‘art belongs to everyone’ is an overused commonplace, I still hold that contemporary art is a public good. This stands true even if facts seem to prove otherwise. Besides showcasing its own visual artists, the aim of Resident Art is to broaden the contemporary art scene, offer guidance in current trends of art, facilitate engagement with art through personal experience, and lastly, to raise awareness of art.

The past two years have taught me that though people do seek access to today’s art, their possibilities are limited. Our exhibits, art walks, movie screenings, exhibition guides, and meet-the-artist events have encouraged many to engage with, ponder and welcome contemporary works of art instead of merely looking at them.

Out catalogue presents those artists with whom we have co-created the Resident Art community. Most of them step beyond the boundaries of media by combining traditional genres and progressive techniques, while making art pieces that offer highly personalized reflections on current issues.

I’ve been in this field for almost a decade. As a teacher and an art historian, as well as a gallerist, I am convinced that the encounter with a piece is an indispensable prerequisite of understanding, while a personal experience or a meeting with the artist may facilitate the building of an emotional-sensual relationship.

Wishing you an insightful journey through our catalogue!

Schneller János
art historian, gallerist

We offer our Antique Shops tours for those primarily interested in antiques, classic paintings, sculptures, furniture, and artworks. Throughout our tours we mostly target the antique shops and galleries at the heart of the city that are most vibrant with art dealing. We visit Budapest’s famous gallery and antique shop street to get a look at some of the most prestigious galleries and auction houses in town, moving on to cosier antique stores; then an art deco antique and gift shop displaying furniture and souvenirs dating back to the 19th century. We then descend into the city’s largest cellar-gallery, where antique furniture is displayed alongside vintage paintings and contemporary art works. The tour ends here with a conversation about art and antique trade in Budapest.
