Ferdinand Gallery – new work on show for the next month from March 16th
The Ferdinand Gallery is located at KAZI30, Kazinszky Utca 30, Budapest. KAZI30 is a new venture, designed to function as a co-operative venue for artists who are not part of the ‘closed shop’ mainstream of galleries here.
This is the piece I have on show there for the time being: it is a mixed-media piece on board, 50x50cm in size, its title being ‘Autumns Shades on snow-covered surface.’
I still, also have a work that can be viewed at the headquarters of the Intergaléria Foundation, at Mester Utca 22. This work is also 50×50 cm and completed on board. Its title is ‘Sunset City.’
I understand that Intergaléria have recently formed a new society for local artists and currently are showing work at a town hall in the city centre. However, these days I am starting to get very busy again with teaching work, so will not really have the time to investigate during the week much and the shop is only open from 2 00 pm to 6 most days – when I am at my busiest.
Do check these out yourselves though if you happen to be in town.
So now I have uploaded images of all the works I woanted to include from each category. As and when I have time, I will now be slowly adding more information about each work.
In the mean time, I can be contacted me wherever there maybe a query about any of the works on show here.
I have recently been showing work at the newly-opened cellar gallery KAZI30, at Kazinszky Utca 30 Budapest, organised by the Ferdinand Gallery. There will be an opening of the new mixed show for the next month there at 6 00pm this Sunday. I will only be exhibiting the one piece this time round, the one shown here. It can also be viewed on my ‘Larger Mixed-media Pieces’ page. It was completed in 2008, on board, and is 50×50 cm, titled ‘Autumnal shades on snow surfaces.’
Much of what the Ferdinand Gallery was music to my ears – reaching the people directly and getting away from the exclusivity and sheer snobbery of traditional galleries. Artists working together in a sense of community.
This has been my first experience of participating in a co-operative run gallery and now it does seem to be more a question of it being about nothing but the rent and how much each artist can afford to lose each month, alongside popularity votes and bruised egos. It is still early days there though.
Beyond this, there is nothing like having a new site to stimulate a certain amont of self-criticism. Recently I have made a cull of several pieces that seemed to me to still need work, or repairing, or simply, just getting rid of, in order to make way for new ideas.
For new visitors to my site, I would like to welcome you!
I have uploaded several works to each of my Works sections. These include my Larger mixed-media works, my paper collage pieces, colour drawings and life drawings.
At the moment, Life Drawing is at a bit of a hiatus, but I hopeto resume with that soon. After this weekend, I hope to bring you more news about what is happening in Budapest reagarding group exhibitions with which I have been involved recently.
