For Szirtes, the process of painting is seen as a concentrated action or ritual. The most potent painterly manifestation of this is revealed in his ‘soot’ series. Here the canvas carries the imprint of great energy, every detail preserving the artistic means of its creation. The element of fire, the ritual and symbolism of the movements, captured with the focus of the artist creates a situation similar to a performance. Elementary power becomes moulded into the material, held in constant action.
