Exhibit: Modern Artwork Honoring Hungarian Traditions
I recognize the disappearing yet rich heritage of Hungarian folk craftsmanship.
In a world swept-up in homogenization of culture and economy, I believe Hungarian folk art reflects positive aspects of traditional human societies the modern world often seems too busy to notice.
I turn to the old in order to create modern works which respect the deep values of regional cultures in historical and modern Hungary. I use mixed media, traditional printmaking and modern printmaking to share my love of these crafts. I hope to open the minds of those not familiar with Hungarian art and society through the large scope of some of my works. As well, I seek to re-energize Hungarians of all ages who I hope will notice the detail in my pieces.
