László Szotyory’s Exhibition at the Kunsthalle Budapest

We are pleased to announce that our artist, László Szotyory’s exhibition titled ‘The Obscure Objects of Desire’ was opened at the Kunsthalle, Budapest. The show will be opened until the 17th of November.

László Szotyory’s melancholic, bucolic world is a reality conceived in ecstasy, about which the artist previously wrote: “I paint what I would like to conjure up around myself, the imaginary surroundings in which I live, in which I feel good.” The paintings being shown at this large-scale exhibition represent the slice of his oeuvre in which a style of painting that spans the postmodern traditions from New Painting onwards, is manifest as a form of existence without being. Looking at Szotyory’s paintings, the visitor to the exhibition may get a sense of things splitting away from the cinematographic stories of “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” and “The Elemental Importance of Breathing”, and coalescing into a single, virtual entity, metamorphosing through painting into a physical sensation, and an existential opportunity.
