Ádám Hollós: Intro April 19, 2012 - May 20, 2012

.The next exhibition of Várfok Project Room – after the photo invasion of the past months – intends to reconquer the domain of painting presenting between April 20th and May 19th 2012 the newest works of Ádám Hollós, one of Várfok Gallery’s youngest painters.
Ádám Hollós (1984, Budapest) received his degree in painting at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2011 and in the same year he joined the artists’ group of the former Spiritusz Gallery. After that Várfok Gallery’s filiate gallery stopped to function, he joined the artists’ circle of Várfok Gallery in January 2012, more precisely the Spiritusz Section which gathers the young generation. The title of the upcoming exhibition Intro, shows that this is going to be his first solo show at Várfok Gallery. Ádám Hollós is a painter to the core, his pictures are charecterized by specific use of materials and surfaces. On the paintings invoking the excellent technical knowledge and figurativity of the New Leipzig School, the viewer’s eye is caught by the complete orgy of the surface’s structures. The sometimes dissolvered sometimes heavier surfaces are hold together by the thick beech-wood. Due to these facts, independently of the size of the paintings, they always seem monumental or heroic. And that is exactly Ádám Hollós’ aim: by grabbing out and revaluating moments of day-to-day life, he asks questions in a concentrated way, calls our attention to things which seem insignificant at first sight, and discredits social norms. Ádám Hollós analizes, decomposes and then puts together again everything but already in a completely different quality. The abstract, dynamic gestures and nonfigurative details made by diligent care, merge into figurative compositions.
