So 2016….

The summer was an enormously creative time, thanks in part to being able to work with artsits in the public, at the Gozsdu Court every Thursday in the city of Budapest (and at home too) via the Ferdinand Gallery.  Alas, that is no longer possible for the time being due to other commitments and anyway it is starting to get colder……

Several small pieces of mine are already on show at the Jancsó Galéria, at a cosy cellar in Kazinszky Utca 3.

Meanwhile, on the 25th November I will be involved in a group exhibition at Ráday Utca Budpest, organised by Péter Fekete, who has been hosting life-drawing classes, with wine and snacks – sometmies more – at the end of each session. On the 4th November I have been invited to show my work through the Mo Mo Csoport, or group, at the Rottenbiller Café, in the 7th district.  The working title will 1The Pearl of Great Price,’ or in Hungarian ‘A Nagy Értékü Gyöngy.’ Once  I have the invites ready, I will be posting more precise information.

 

So watch this space…..

New exhibition coming up!

My next exhibition will be in just 2-3 weeks now – at the Müszi, at Blaha Luiza Square, Budapest, on Thursday November 20th at 6.00 pm. The exhibition will be opened by Egyed László.

I will be showing a larger number of pieces, both recent and older, than I did at the Ékezet Gallery.

The title of the Exhibition is ‘Here and Now’ and I will be showing mainly newer and more recent compositions, alongside a few older works. The exhibition is meant to show how some of the techniques I have worked on have evolved in terms of style, up to the present. I work using materials ranging from acrylic to wax, metal foil and glass fragments, creating further layers of complexity over reflective surfaces.

And I am delighted to be getting the opportunity to show my work againl.

Szimpla Kert mixed exhibition and other updates

The exhibition at the Ékezet Galéria went very well.

Here is a Facebook link to the photos taken in the course of the evening. And a big thank you to the Ékezet for helping to make it such a pleasant occasion! The exhibition will still be there until the 28th September.

Another place where I have a work on view as part of a mixed exhibition is still on at the Szimpla Kert, a ruin pub in the heart of ‘alternative’ Budapest. This is part of the ongoing programme to open up the world of art to both artists and viewers within the city of the Kazi30 Galéria, now moved to Paulay Ede Utca 56. The anarchic atmosphere and ambience of the Szimpla Kert does seem to be one of the better places to do this.

Until more recently I did not really know any other practising atists within the city, but now I do have the chance to meet artists regularly to do life drawing together. Here is the opening of one of these other members, Egyed László, whose very fine and sensual life drawings were exhibited not so long ago.

Seems there could be quite a lot happening in November, so stay tuned.

New pieces…….

There is nothing like the knowledge that exhibitions are on the way to motivate towards getting new work done! I hope to have a surprise or two in stroe for the Ékezet Galéria in September and to have one or two more works to choose from when itis tim for the Müszi exhibition.

Progress can be viewed from my Facebook page…..

Meanwhile, here I have added some more images  – firstly to my Life Drawing section – where not only is there the chance to draw a life model, but where it is also possible to expereince that much more of a sense of community among other artists, in a milieu which is neither self-consciously expat, nor parochially local.  And the wine and cuisine from Mr Fekete are also a real treat!

I have also added some more works to the My Larger mixed-media Pieces section too – though in fact, the works I have added to the latter are not all that big……..

I have had many well-meaning people aske me why I do not ‘go bigger’ with my paper collage works – well here, there is now a selection in this style on canvas – using more of the media that would only work on a more robust surface too – but there will certainly be some larger pieces soon to flesh out this particular slection of works.

In both cases, please scroll down towards the bottom to find these……

Exhibitions coming this Autumn!

This Autumn may be quite eventful, as I will be exhibiting twice in Solo exhibitions!

The first will be at the ékezet galéria, Hajos Utca 41 from mid-September, the other from late November to early December at the MÜSZI, Blaha Luiza Square. More information will be posted as it comes as there is still a lot to organise and plan.
Kettő kiállítási lehetőségem lesz amint vége lesz a nyárnak 2014-ben. Az egyik lesz szeptember középétől az Ékezet Galériában, Hajos Utca 41, a másik viszont a Müsziben November végétől December elejéig. Van még sok csinálnivaló, sok amit kell szervezni, de tudni fogok értesíteni ezeken a lapokon.
