 The Várfok Gallery continues its Spring season with a solo exhibition of the work of Tamás Jovanovics. The exhibition, to be held in both the Várfok Gallery and Várfok Project Room, aims to present a wide selection from the last 12 years of Jovanovics’ work.

Tamás Jovanovics (1974, Budapest) studied Fine Art at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest, at the Université de Provence in Aix-en-Provence and at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. In 2009, he was selected by MontrasioArte to be an Artist in Residence for three months in New York (USA) at the Harlem Studio Fellowship. In the same year his work received special mention by the curators of the Milan based Premio Artivisive San Fedele.


Jovanovics exhibits in London, Milan and Vienna on a regular basis and has held exhibitions in numerous galleries and museums, both public and private, in Berlin, Brussels, Moscow, New York and
Rome. In 2014 he had a solo show in the vast  'Templespace' of the Kiscelli Museum in Budapest, at the Várfok Gallery and at the Maab Gallery in Milan. In 2015 he participated in a group exhibition at the Costesy Gallery in Lugano, Switzerland, together with world-famous artists such as  Gianni Colombo, Jason Martin, François Morellet, Otto Piene and Paolo Scheggi.


Jovanovics' work can be interpreted as illusionistic space-fields created by coloured pencil lines. The lines are in a fixed, strictly formal order which gives a primary role to the colours and the rhythms created by them evoke ideas of musical beats and sequences. In the space defined by these colours, the sense of gravity dissolves and a floating, timeless field unfolds in front of the viewer, counterpointing the heavy reality of the wall around it. And so, the viewer is taken out of the everyday, earth-centred world, and finds himself or herself in a timeless, picturesque, open space enmeshed by metaphysical line structures and ethereal, coloured vibrations.
