Mask


2009- | Painting series | photos by Miklos SULYOK

The social engaged series evokes the leading events of the recent political situation, cultural themes, religious conflicts from the view point of substitutability and impersonality. The artist just cut out some details / motives from the pictures putting on the virtual clippboard where a black hole was created, painted by a vivid black glaze. The pictures were made in different styles and techniques depending on the atmosphere of the evoked situation constructing a sharp contrast between the drawn and the cut-out forms.
