"Volume" - sculptural-painterly works by Sergio Femar and Árpád Forgó ... more >


The works of Sergio Femar (*1990, lives and works in Galicia, Spain) keep a reminiscence of the refined use of material of Arte Povera, but he indicates a new way to approach it through the various cuts made with wood. Slices of this material are coloured and assembled to create unique and serene reflections. “My work stands between the calm of the studio and the frenetic pace of contemporary culture and its ephemeral nature. It leads the vandal act to a mature reflection, in other words, brings back the joys of creation without feeling restricted by academic pressure, by using risk as the connecting element between vertigo and serenity.”

Árpád Forgó (*1972): The Budapest-based artist is clearly rooted in the tradition of concrete art, but expands it with a playful approach and a love of experimentation. Forgó finds images that offer us wonderfully sensual stimuli. He invites the viewer to look closely and see if they can trust their eyes. The subtle colour gradient on a canvas, for example, is created by the curvature of a slightly stretched canvas in three dimensions. Here, the artist explores the boundary between the "shaped canvas" and the painterly body, which resembles an object. However, his works always remain images and do not question them.
