PINK! by The Artist Room, Budapest
I’m so happy to be part of PINK! curated by Fabio Matthew Lanna (IT) and Patrycja Rup (PL). You can check out this group exhibition at two venues, at Charbon Art Café and at the Pál utca Gallery, Budapest, Hungary. I’m showing 4 paintings together with 26 emerging and established artists from all over the world.
“Pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping it to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits. Pink is romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy.”
“2 in Solitude”, pop-up summer show at Kahan Art Space, Budapest
A pop-up exhibition, showcasing artworks by me and my best friend, also a wonderful artist, Kata H. Jancsó, participating in the Dr Éva Kahan Non-Profit Foundation’s art residency program.
We spent a month in January 2020 at the residency in San Sano, Tuscany, Italy. Our artworks, created during our stay and after our return, were exhibited in this show.
San Sano’s inspiring environment, complete isolation, Tuscany’s wonderful nature and the foundation’s absolute support made an ideal setting for genuine self-expression. The exhibited creations reflect on both artists’ creative process during the residency.
