On 7th June 2016 Sotheby’s Contemporary East auction, showcasing contemporary art from Central and Eastern Europe and the CIS, will feature a work by El Kazovszkij, The Garden of Venus IV which is on view at the Várfok Gallery until this Saturday.

Following on from the enormous success of the exhibition organized at the Hungarian National Gallery, the works of El Kazovsky will be on view at the Várfok Gallery from the 8th of April, 2016. The Kossuth Prize awarded El Kazovsky (1948, Saint Petersburg /RUS/ – 2008, Budapest /HUN/) was one of the Várfok Gallery's first exhibitors in 1991 and, up until his death in 2008 he has had 16 solo exhibitions at the Gallery.
A common feature of El Kazovsky’s works in various genres is that they are all about the connections and relationships between the characters of his personal, subjective mythology, which in turn are based on classical elements, themes and philosophies. The stage-like spaces created by El Kazovsky and the scenery elements of cypresses, chimneys, rock and curtains all combine to create his "theatre" where his stories and dramas of constant unfulfilled longing are played out. The characters which are present in his work appear as faceless torsos, ballerinas, Fates, Venuses, and a dog-like wandering animal, the artist portrayed as a character himself, is the subject of the eternal longing and acts as a mediator between the painting and the viewer.

The art of Róbert Várady (1950, Budapest) has a certain intellectual nature. He often gets inspired by exact philosophical and literary texts, engaging himself in existential experiences, thoughts and themes. Besides philosophy he reflects on the actual problems and results of natural science. In his works elusive concepts of metaphysics are translated into a visual language, turning them into visual metaphors.
The exhibition of the Várfok Project Room provides a rich insight into the latest figurative works of the Munkácsy Prize awarded Hungarian artist, Róbert Várady, member of the Várfok Gallery’s permanent artists’ circle.
