Beáta Szabó: ORGAN CONCERT
I am strongly connected to colours. While painting I can feel
the body of the colours and our connection is starting to live
and breathe. I really love working with dirty paints and
building body for the colour combinations from them. I use my
bare hands to make a direct contact with the work I am creating,
enabling instinctive expressiveness to manifest on the
paintings. I challenge the boundary between the image and the
object within my paintings and I wish to break away from the
two-dimensional surface to enter into the three-dimensional
The condition of the human being continues to fascinate me. I
question the notions and boundaries of the body – where does the
flesh end and the soul begin; where does life end and death
begin; what makes this flesh a human being and not an animal;
what makes this flesh a woman and what does it mean to be one?
One can show the most of a human by their traumas – when wounds
are exposed it is like the perfectly transparent light fractured
into visible colours. Imperfection, vulnerability, original
experiences of rejection and being lost are all on the gamut of
the vital organ.
