On 400m2, Galerie Melbye-Konan will exhibit the large-scale artworks of internationally recognized artist Márta Kucsora. The exhibition with the title „Monumentalis” will be shown from April 15 to June 30, 2023.
Hailing from Hungary, Márta Kucsora’s artwork has been showcased in prestigious museums and can be found in renowned private and public collections worldwide. With solo exhibitions in renowned institutions such as the Kunsthalle Budapest and the Kepes Institute and countries like the USA, China and Belgium, she has firmly established herself as a leading figure in the art world.
Kucsora’s art is a reflection of the artist herself, a deep and complex exploration of the human condition and the world around us. Her use of vibrant colors, bold lines, and abstract shapes creates a sense of movement and energy that draws the viewer in and invites them to explore the layers of meaning within each piece. Her art is expressive, almost poetic abstraction, characterized by special coloring and immense movement.
Viewers will find roots of abstract expressionism in Kucsora’s work, which has been heavily influenced by 20th century U.S. artists Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. Márta Kucsora studied in New Jersey and in Budapest.
In her artistic creative process, the Hungarian treads scientific-experimental paths: she experiments with novel color formulas, deals with the chemical and physical properties of her paint, uses them for her work. It is not unusual to see the artist wearing a gas mask during her work. Because of the intensity of the process, the artist can spend up to two years working on a single piece.
Kucsora is an artist who gets to the heart of the aesthetic investment that abstraction can offer. With her paintings she wants to bring back moments that have faded in our dull and corroded lives. Her works are meant to help us activate our sensual experiences and expand the possibilities of our creative imagination. Ultimately, they will restore the lost splendour of nature, essential for a balanced life.
