Dark Matter

I am interested in the transformation of visual symbols like the American flag from the time I was still living in Hungary in the eighties through 9/11 to its present symbolic flow.

I am proposing to exhibit an existing work that I have never shown in New York before.  The flag represents a shadow of ideal glory and strength. Its significance has been constantly shifting from a symbol of hope and freedom to nationalism into a symbol of hate and aggression and false ideals for many people. It is a representation of our fragile system that is structured on symbols in constant transition. The grey surface of the canvases is almost black from the distance. But it’s never a binary solution.

The number of pieces for the specific exhibition can fluctuate, but when the paintings are shown individually they become an undesirable relic, and as a whole they form a certain “scape” of continuum, the horizon of social contradiction. I am very interested to show this painting installation at the Queens International as extremely relevant.


I'm not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
