Rita Koszorús Artist Bio:
The central source of inspiration for my visual work is my own, intra-subjective environment. In my paintings and the works beyond I mainly reflect my neighbourhood to as a territory, social or artistic background. My strategy is to encode the idea of my work with adequate visual form with emphasis on my own personal mythology and identity. My "home" media remains drawing, which culminates in paintings and recently also in video. These media correlate with the implicit nature of my work, which is based on the record and authentic reflection of my environment. However, I do not perceive the medium of painting as a static easel paintings, but in a broader sense - as a kind of visual art, which is currently again looking for its place and function in the world of art. I see the medium of painting itself as a theme. Image area is traditionally a territory of tensions between motifs, colours and shapes. For me the act of painting itself is very important. I challenge the convention of viewing the painting as a static easel painting using strategies as participation or destruction in the course of painting. My private dichotomy is reflected in the dichotomy of painting. The questions related to the position of painting in the world of art, the relationship between the artist (work) and curator (his interpretation), the artist and the viewer are asked through the involvement of a firearm in the process of birth and extinction of the painting. The shooting, i.e. the physical destruction of the picture by the curator or the audience refers to the relational dichotomy: on the one hand, the work of the artist is irreversibly impaired - damaged, but on the other hand, a new and equally unique work is created. In March last year was the first time I presented in Telep Gallery (Budapest, HU) the shot paintings. A series of paintings with the theme of a private cultural dichotomy, were shot by the curator, in order to complete or comment them this way, while extending their visual and conceptual framework.
