THE InnER-SPaCE-GUaRDs Central – Eastern European Indian Tale

Once upon a time there was a reservation called Hungary. Three Indians were living there, sometimes happily, sometimes unhappily. Three contemporary artists. Let us call them Guards. They are the gurads of the honour of this profession. And they have been successful as it still exists, although the reservation itself is going through apocalyptic times, so it needs its guards even more. Our inner self needs guarding, the inner self which can be like a cold room, or sometimes a devastated, cluttered studio. This everlasting space-guarding is what connects and differentiates the three Indians, the three generations. Each of them is a love affair with the objects and spaces depicted, which fills the picutres with life and love, which makes them pulsate with energy. Éva Krajcsovics is the guard of piety. She starts from the specific objects (bed, table, book) or from the specific parts of buildings, works of art, and advances towards the general, the abstracted, more and more inside. She reaches the point where only the contours can be seen. However, they are undoubtedly recognisable for those who know the “authentic” and undoubtedly authentic for those who do not know the object of the depiction. They are copies of the souls of the objects if we believe that there exists such a thing. Nevertheless, Éva Krajcsovics reveals these pristine images from herself extremely credibly, gently, in a womanly way. She inspires piety in the audience. Tibor Nádor is the guard of calmness. Radioactive radiation and the after-creation silence are emanating from his pictures. One does not dare to wink, move or talk before his great works of art. His pure, naked painting-spaces illuminate calmness. The light – shadow games only seemingly show the same, familiar studio detail. In fact they invite the viewer to enter, and after opening in – that is, observing the painting longer -, everything changes. Nothing is what it seems to be. Newer and newer spaces open, where the viewer can wander happily. And one can disappear easily. Balázs Fischer is the guard of emptiness. He packs his studio full so that he can show the essential emptiness when he depicts is. How? He removes the bric-a-brac from the space of the painting beautifully, as a result of a long process. He elaborates the composition until he reaches the balance. The balance between form and emptiness. The same space is always the object of the experiment, his own studio. First he moves the previously set things as if it were a new composition, then he slowly re-paints the concrete objects, and finally all of his pictures will be full of impression and beauty.
