István Nádler November 29, 2008 - December 30, 2008


(1938, Visegrád), the painter is 70 years old this year. Várfok Gallery celebrated the master’s birthday with a special separate stand at Budapest ArtFair (Budapest, Art Hall, 20-23 November).

The exhibition of István Nádler’s latest works is to open 29th November in Várfok Gallery’s Várfok and XO Hall. Unusually, the vernissage is organised on a Saturday – István Nádler’s birthday. The other reason, why this date is special for the Gallery, is that it celebrates its 18th birthday the following day. One of the first private contemporary art-galleries in Hungary was founded 30th November 1990 with the name Várfok 14 Workshop Gallery. Várfok Gallery has regularly exhibited the works of István Nádler since 1997. Including these shows, István Nádler has had nine solo-exhibitions with the Gallery and participated several times in its group exhibitions. His new paintings are somewhat closer to a certain geometrical viewpoint, enriched with vivid dynamics. After he has got rid of the dimensions of „up and down”, his pictures are based on a sensual, intuitive and geometrical attitude. Only the painterly gestures make a connection between these two extremities. Colours are just as intensified in these paintings as in Nádler’s older works. Aiming at the powerful white, Nádler’s vibrant coulours invite the viewer to his meditative fantasy world.
