Léna & Roselli Gallery will participate at VOLTA Basel 2021 Show between 20 and 25 September 2021

Léna & Roselli Gallery (Budapest) stages a two-booth presentation at VOLTA Basel 2021 with sculpture artist BOLDI and painter Mózes Incze about How Humans Relate to the World. For their second presentation Playful Nature the gallery brings together new works by Ivan Lardschneider and Daniel Tarcsi.

BOLDI: “Female figures in different body positions and sometimes with a symbolic device carry the possibility of the promise of life, indirectly the custodians of birth and fertility. In the design of a specific work, it is simple, easily recognizable to everyone, yet it has a symbolic value, attracting further possibilities of association in the viewer. Often ancient and mythical sources of inspiration or other branches of art, inspiration from movement or music, followed by combing, bathing, playing an instrument, figures are born.”

Incze Mózes: “Morphosys”: in the beginning there was the Word… and here I am now, having a complex, mostly incomprehensible existence around me, sheltering the fragments of knowledge I have. The endless time and space hide uncountable questions, finding an answer rises even more issues- all this seems to be beyond human categories. In the beginning there was the Image… and since mankind lost innocence, only tiny fragments of it can be seen from a point of view. The visual noise covers the original reality, and I doubt what I do not see.

There is a chance: looking at a subject for a longer time, the essence can be selected: unchanged spots discovered on it will guide me trough. To avoid oblivion, I make signs on a canvas, traces of brushwork form the map for feelings, thoughts, perceptions. I quit the demand of perfection, being satisfied with approaching the right forms for the meanings found in the relations between the understood details.

In the beginning, there were the Possibilities… and one of them let me think and paint about all this. It is not an unclouded contemplation, I am trapped: I can observe only one thing at the same time, beeng not so sure about the areas not included in my focus. So, I paint incomplete images, islands of reasonable relations float in an unreliable space. I could be frightened by the obscureness. I should be filled by the joy of experience.”

Ivan Lardschneider has been surrounded by wood all of his life, therefore the best way for him to express his inner feelings was just one: to create art masterpieces by carving that same wood he grew up with. Now this art is alive, and it’s here for you: made to reveal well-hidden emotions within us all.

Daniel Tarcsi “Layers”: Overlapping parts of the soul that form a structure on the canvas as part of the creative process. The refined pictorial forms, at first roughly spread out and then connected to each other, filling the space. Picture in picture, connections are made. Sharp shapes and lines give each other a relationship and create a pictorial world. The strict geometry is softened by soft colors and finely crafted details, which give the images their uniqueness. The work has stages of conscious, planning, and instinctive “flow”. This method gives it its specific formal language character. The intersecting brush strokes are placed on the canvas like a net. The shape and color range of the images are always narratives of the given state, which often overlap, in new and new layers, even completely obscuring the previous one.

The visual defaults are based on natural phenomena and observations, and often have a deeper meaning. The process and experience of creation is very important, a finished image is only a stop on the journey. As a result, works created in a process are in dialogue with each other, often serial pieces are created.

In the works, the problem of human existential existence can be traced, ontological questions to which he seeks and answers with artistic activity. His work is directed against the passing away and, showing a higher aesthetic of being, strives for eternity.
