featured artists: Denes Maroti

Hungarian
Dénes’ work immediately strikes the viewer as being strongly rooted in a very thorough understanding of the traditions of the pictorial idiom. His work is strewn with references to classical imagery (such as St Michael and the Dragon) yet this may not be immediately apparent other that in the titles. Figures in well known groupings and portraits of unknown faces are as Dénes puts it, observed through his ´ controlled application of forms of colour, not to mention spatiality´. Repetitive figures and the use of few but powerful colours coupled to a very fine drawing technique lead the viewer further along from the strong initial visual impact. We come to consider the notion that ´the use of repetition, as a conscious constituent element, stresses that artistic creativity is not a discrete, simplistic, confined entity; but rather operates in systematically restructured situations’.
