Helen Tóth Artist Bio:
Forming and expressing in words the act what my hands are doing on the canvas is the most difficult thing to do for me. In my opinion words cannot really substitute what your eyes can see. Even hundreds of written pages cannot provide a concrete picture of a painting. All I can say about what is going on my mind is reflected in the paintings. As a matter of fact, I am painting my own forest from mint leaves. As I live in the middle of blocks of flats and concrete jungle, where a parking place is much more important than hundreds of trees, I am creating my own place according to my rules, a forest, where my soul desires to be, as well as having my plants in my room, because this is the only way I can have the feeling to be surrounded by pure nature amongst the walls. It is the place for my unspoken words, for my theory about the meaning of existence, the unanswered questions, the events that influenced my life greatly and the desire for my wanderings combined with my adoration for teas and the esoteric world. Each painting consists of some specifics in the form as well as in the content. I am working with a symbol, the grey doll, which remained to me since my childhood and fascinated me so much that I can express anything by it, represents me, the lonely wanderer, or by its greyness perfectly symbolises the human itself, the existence, the mass, because we are all naked in the sea of impermanence. I am looking for the right way to go, the right path, the fire in the arts, the answers, creating critiques, expressing my anger against evil and injustice that hail from the world in this safe bohemian forest sprinkled with some drops of sarcasm.
