Exhibition series – London 2012
by Atelier Art Gallery
Opening ceremony: Thursday 27 September 6.30 pm – 9.30 pm
The exhibition series will be opened by Dr. Beáta Pászthy, director of the Hungarian Cultural Centre.
The newly established Atelier Art Gallery presents a stunning exhibition series and art fair with the works of 14 established Hungarian artists. Their works can be found in private and public collections all over the world. The exhibition will appear in three different galleries in London, each time providing for a new atmosphere. The collection includes paintings, photographies, sculptures, pottery and carved wooden figures, and the exhibited artworks offer a wide-ranging experience not only of Hungarian art, but also of the secrets of human existence, with an emphasis on their timeless quality.
Inner universes (contemporary painting): András BERKES, Ilona luca DECSI, András GYŐRFI, Imre KÉRI, Lehel FUCHS and Attila ORBÁN have completely different ways of seeing, each of them working in their own techniques, their paintings transmitting feelings of their own; yet they do become related in each of their works by revealing their innermost worlds and making them visible to everyone in vibrant colours, fine lines and dashing forms.
Masters of raku (art pottery, ceramics): Miklós BERCSÉNYI, János MIKLÓS, Klára KÓS, Éva KUN, Anna SCHÉFFER, Sándor SOMOGYI and Mónika ZÁDORI present a wide variety of modern ceramics art alluding to ancient and medieval styles. Many of these works are raku-fired, which is probably the most spectacular firing technology, originating in ancient Japanese culture.
VillageCity (photography): Lehel FUCHS shows us the similarity and the diversity of village and city. In his photographs he matches landscapes and buildings formed either by Nature or humans. But his works are not just documentations; they make us think about our way of living and reflect our wishes and alternatives. The choice is ours.
Mention must be made of Sándor PÉCSI’s carved wood creatures, carrying native power and incarnating his nation’s legends and beliefs.
The artists invite everyone to a journey to the land of ancient traditions, to the labyrinth of spirit and beauty, back to Nature, back to what is human, back to art.
Acclaimed Hungarian painter András Győrff y makes a show during the opening reception at London West Bank Gallery. He will paint a picture in the middle of the gallery, so anyone has the chance to watch his virtuosic technics.
Atelier Art Gallery invites everyone to a collective activity. On the opening reception and each privet view we will paint a picture together with the guests to record the moods of the exhibitions.
Talented Hungarian musicians will enrich the atmosphere of the events presenting high level performances.
Selected Hungarian wines and some typical Hungarian delicacy will be served on the opening reception and the private views.
