In-between state

In much of my work, solitary figures placed in undefined painterly spaces seem to have a readiness to let go and disperse into the immediate surrounding, loosening and becoming part at the same time. As paintings, these works investigate the boundaries of the body as a mass and an outline.

In much of my work, solitary figures placed in undefined painterly spaces seem to have a readiness to let go and disperse into the immediate surrounding, loosening and becoming part at the same time. As paintings, these works investigate the boundaries of the body as a mass and an outline. The abstract background that is often composed with loose paint strokes, reminiscent of seismographical recordings, interacts with the figures, somewhat carrying or holding them. It is this in-between state of letting go until the arrival into the unknown that interests me. Dispersing and disappearing even, and having faith in oneself, stretched into eternity.

A film by Fanni Udvarnoki for Collegium Hungaricum Berlin.

What is it about your studio space that inspires you?

It is a very quiet place. The inspiration comes from within my work rather than from the space I work in.

What sounds, scents and sights do you encounter while in your studio?

I listen to music or even podcasts with recorded talks. The studio is in a courtyard, ground floor so not much of a view, no distraction. There is the smell of paint.

What is your favourite material to work with? How has your use of it evolved throughout your practice?

Acrylics and water soluble oil paint. I stopped using regular oil paint due to an allergy but slowly I´m using it more and more, leaving out turpentine.

What themes do you pursue?

The boundaries between inside and outside, the illusion of separation. What lies behind the visible?

What advice has had the biggest impact on your career?

that everything is possible if you believe it

If you could install your art absolutely anywhere, where would that be?

Somewhere where it is very visible, where many people could see it. Maybe even as a billboard

If you could only have one piece of art in your life, what would it be?

the idea to have only one piece of art is so sad that I rather don´t own any. Can I still create my own?

If you weren´t an artist, what would you be doing?

work with children or teach yoga.

What are your favourite places besides your studio?

our new home. Museums and gardens and castles.
