FIXED TIME

..... between imagination and reality .....
While looking on those paintings you can have the impression that they are a specific – subjective transformation of reality by artist's imagination. Paintings created from the materials, which we know from the daily life – concrete, steal, wood, graphite, tin..., but used totally different than in ordinariness - here they build some of artist's ideas. You can see a willful resignation from making mimicry art, but you can also see willful and purpose use those kinds of materials, which associate with the most ordinary reality.
Some fragments of this reality are implicating the originate ideas for paintings in mind – sometimes it is a certain situation, sometimes a detail and the other time a place. Those paintings are not a description of reality and above all they are a specific story about its picture.

..... between the space and the painting .....
The space, the place where the painting is being created has a vital importance to its shape and form. Each picture originates in a concrete space; it is being „built” with an idea of the space and for the space. It is forming a closed, completing each other composition as a whole. Removed into another space, it becomes something different, has a different dimension and meaning. The idea of a particular place and specifically inscribing it in its context seems to be essential for the artist.

..... between present and elapsing .....
The changes occurring because of the exterior mediums and time influence – which is probably one of the most drastic features affecting all the paintings, is very important to this kind of art. The materials applied by the artist often undergo the processes of rusting, decolourisation and oxidation. Their colour and fracture changes and so they evolve. They become different in a specific sense, similar to the living creatures, which undergoes transformations and metamorphosis but never lose their autonomy. These works live with their own life the same as the space surrounding them.

Duration, evolution, laps ... this, who we are, is ... reality and transcendent...
