Arpad Forgo Artist Bio:

Arpad FORGO Mid carreer artist, Arpad Forgo has taken part in solo and group exhibitions mainly abroad, from Taiwan to the United States of America in the recent years. Most recently he has been working in an artist residency program in Sydney. His work fits into the international contemporary art stream that embraces the heritage of abstraction and develops it further by his own methods. The clean and lean vocabulary that features his works operates with basic geometric methods such as reflection, shifting and rotation. However the minimalist construction is added up by inventive optical effects with precise sense of proportion, for example a finely drawn strip of bright colour or a stretched double-cord system, resulting multiplication of the reduced vision. The variation of the same element is a returning motif: line, strip, ribbon, cord. Sometimes it is streched like a string, twisting spirally, sometimes it wraps the work. The reception of Forgo's works are determined by different views, directions; the abundance variation of the compositions gradually unfolds as the viewer passes by. They are organically linked to the surrounding space, the air, the light, the shadows. The subtle kinetic effects cite the work of Venezuelan-born French artist Jesus Rafael Soto (1923-2005); and the shaped canvas solutions revive the tradition of Hungarian neo-avantgarde. Each of the compact and elaborately realised small objects of Arpad Forgo hide inside stories, which are also inherent in the choice of material. If they are inside stories, then mostly haikus that are sensitive to the nature, contemplation and gentle serenity steeped playfulness. Zsolt MESZAROS art historian
