Attila Szűcs. Duplicated Dreamer: SOLO SHOW

22 February - 22 March 2022

Federico Luger (FL Gallery) | WIZARD presents Attila Szucs: Duplicated Dreamer at the new exhibition space  Corso di Porta Ticinese 87. Milan 20123.

Hours: 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

 

 The Hungarian artist (Miskolc, 1967, lives and works in Budapest) will present a series of new paintings made in his original compositional style, a remix of images taken from varied media and painted in a dreamlike realism on large abstract backgrounds -  Szűcs' distinctive feature from the early nineties.
 
Strongly characterised by light, the large-format canvases depict images that intertwine dreams and visions of tangible and evocative manifestations.  The long flowing hair, that seems to be created by a glamorous stylist- with touches of Man Ray and pre-Raphaelite references- is the main subject of these paintings. The representation of the hair, in fact, gathered or braided as in a confrontation of identity, moves gracefully in the painting, transfiguring the artwork itself in waves of epiphanies and extensions.
 
His work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions (KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Ludwig Museum, Budapest; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Teylers Museum, Haarlem, The Netherlands). His works are also held in permanent collections such as Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum Joanneum in Graz (Austria), Hungarian National Gallery, Ludwig Museum in Budapest.
