László László Révész: Me too, I was there, in Etruria
And the book launche of the third issue of the museum-pedagogy series Colouring book – not only for kids drawn by the artist
At 6 pm, Tuesday, 31 May 2011 in Bartók Béla road 25.
Multi-genre artist László László Révész’s question with present exhibition is the cultural continuity, namely how much a historical age could influence our modern culture, our everyday life. We only look at the scenery as tourists and continue our trip with the hope of returning or interpret the Roman and Etruscan culture as an integral part of our time? Flashing around the cultural treasures of a foreign land it is thrilling to know that once it was alive, it was used and it shaped our culture as well.
László László Révész’s works, influenced by a long Italian trip, projects the antique Roman culture, view of life to our present time, for the enormous temporal distance giving it a new interpretation. Is Etruria still exist, and if so, what is our relation to it and to other lost cultures and societies?
Among the exhibited drawings and paintings there will be seen the original drawings of the colouring book I also lived in Etruria edited by Faur Zsófi- Ráday Gallery.
The new volume is the part of a museum-pedagogy exercise-book series of which the first two volumes were drawn by living classics as Gábor Roskó and Sándor Rácmolnár who worked up the Jewish and the Buddhist cultures.
„ The creators give this publication to children and adult artlovers with a hope that the drawings in the colouring books make the acceptance of the alter easier.” László Hemrik

...One’s identity and its function is thus a question people may ask themselves, and this theme has engaged Fabricius since the start of her career. One striking tendency of her approach can be seen in her group photos, in which either the artist arranges her acquaintances among themselves, or she directs members of specific, existing groups to strike poses in staged, tableau-like scenes. However, a different approach to the subject also appears in Fabricius’s work again and again, focusing on the individual ... >>>
You can never see elements of nature in Ádám Magyar`s images, people in his photos are always depicted in strictly artificial surroundings. What is more, the environment is not simply "not natural" but people seem to exist in an expressively constructed, artificial, sometimes even surrealistic world. This is a world with hardly any grips and reference points, at most vague indications of and subtle hints at the >>>
Day by day we feel the need to surround ourselves in our visually important living spaces with landscapes – be they real or artificial. We have a desire to summon nature – in both its narrower and wider interpretation – to see it represented in our urban environment. >>>
Ákos Matzon is an eccentric. At first sight, neither his person, nor his works would seem to suggest that. He makes the impression of a jovial citizen rather than a Bohemian painter; his art affects us with its calculated orderliness rather than extravagant or astonishing quality. >>>
György Jovián considers himself an artist outside of trends, but his unwavering faith in painting nevertheless occasionally places him with the discourse on trends, which kindles the constant renewal of painting. >>>

.. But I would like to return to Moyra’s above mentioned sentence. My answer to it is as follows: I create images, sometimes I accompany them with words, but and I want them to grow out of thoughts. ...

The compositions of Gerhes and the other two Hungarian artists have finally taken their place among those of Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Tacita Dean, Ilya Kabakov, Joseph Beuys, Matthew Barney, Seydou Keita, Olafur Eliasson, Robert Rauschenberg and others. ...

.. Moreover, I think that Gábor Lajta’s neo-figurative painting is one of the most genuine, self-consistent, pondered and painted oeuvre in the contemporary Hungarian artistic scene. He keenly reflects not only on the present, past and future of art, but on national and international realty, too.

As an artist of outstanding importance, László Hegedûs 2 has been on the Hungarian contemporary scene for about thirty years. Using different artistic means, his works, as those of a practitioner of a varied scale of technical media (photography, film, painting, prints and installation), have made a crucial contribution to the renewal of intermediary means and methods. >>>
