After studying the basics of painting and composition in the workshops of Zoltán Bakonyi and László Petrecki, the time has come to find ways to express myself through art. I have always loved countryside walks, being outdoors and travelling. I am constantly observing the landscape around me, let it be the Carpathian valleys and mountain ranges or the hospitable streets of ancient cities in Europe.
Often, having arranged with my artist friends, or all of a sudden we go together to the Carpathians and various creative camps. Plein air painting is my most enjoyable way of creating - I can express myself most effectively when painting in open air. By exploring impressionism art form I have found its painters' approach to art closest to me. It is the power of the particular moment in time, different times of the day and season, the surrounding atmosphere of nature stretched in front of me that is prompting me to pick a brush and start painting.
During my work, I do not care much about harmonious matching of colours but rather lay patches of colour onto the canvas in pastel applying short and large brushstrokes to intensify color impression and create visual sensation. Each painting surface has its own thrust or dynamics. This dynamics is a response to natural phenomena: how tree leaves are swaying in breeze, or as the creek is finding its wandering path cutting through rocks and flowing over river pebbles. I put colours on canvas as a result of observations of natural phenomena and in response to their their dynamics.
Taking a closer look at my works, some pictures can even be interpreted as abstract color field paintings. However, only if we take a step backwards the image will be composed and patches of colour will become a landscape description tool. The surface of my pictures is not smooth, the slightest brush stroke has an individual visual appeal, its own sense of mass and thrust. The canvas seems to turn into a relief and its images look as though they may have been created of surfaces devided into patches which can be opened up layer by layer and walked through by an attentive viewer.
