Zsigmond Károlyi / Photo paintings


“Almost all the paintings made by Zsigmond Károlyi at the beginning and in the middle of the 80s tell us about forms losing their forms. The main motifs – a scaffolded wall, a shored up porch, windows with X-s painted across them in whitewash – are insignificant, always the same. They are an excuse. Why we might look for the index finger of sociographic conscience-realism raised at us ever so strictly. We might look for nostalgic elements. Only it would be pointless, as we can be sure such things are absent from the paintings.”

Zsigmond Károlyi’s new exhibition “Photo paintings” and book launch at Galeria neon definitely worth to see till the end of next week.
