Gergő Szinyova: No Abracadabra
Curator: Fenyvesi Áron
Opening: 8 February 2019 (Friday), 7pm
Gergő Szinyova’s (1986) artistic practice in the last decade is centred around the renewal of the language of abstract painting. Szinyova’s abstraction is an aftermath of the age of the digital image, inspired by different forms of reproduction and printing; while his series also reflect on the seemingly endless stream of images. In his artworks, he confronts the relevancy and uniqueness of painterly gestures with the possibility of the perpetual reproduction of images. In light of the above, his new paintings at Trafó Gallery carry different graphical references and visual crosstalks, from color misregistrations to sequentially repetitive motives typical of the graphical process of risography.
Szinyova’s paintings have been presented in the form of solo exhibitions at Kisterem Gallery and Art + Text Gallery in Budapest, as well as at the Art Gallery Paks. His last solo show was organised at Anat Egbi Gallery, Los Angeles and his works have recently been displayed at group exhibitions at the Künstlerhaus Graz, at Budapest Gallery and at the Annarumma Gallery in Naples.
