Soul Flower Series 2017

Soulflower

The whole series is dominated by organic forms, microscopic images of our interiors, diving in our flesh and blood. The chromatic character of whole series, dominated by the colours red and blue, is not meant to foster direct associations but does address our subconscious and evokes the Ancient Greek iconography in which the red colour refers to Dionysus, the Olympian god of wine, pleasure, and therefore life and will, and the blue to Apollo, god of light and the sun, of truth and more.

Smutpainting in Ironfactory

 

The artcamp organised by the Budapest based MissionArt Gallery takes place every year in the Ironfactory of Miskolc. In 2009 I made my paintings there on the smutty walls of the old factorybuilding. They are experimentations on movement and energies,  studies which I made during the creation period of my Soulflower series.  Photos by Ági Verebics.
