One of the most original Hungarian painters whose art represents a very close and yet very abstract form at the same time through beautiful colours and forms shows his latest paintings. The exhibit will be opened by József Mélyi art historian.
He was born in Törökszentmiklós on December 6, 1957.
1980-1986: Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, masters of Ignác Kokas, Gábor Dienes. 1986: Herman Lipót Prize. He was also a Soros scholar in 1986 and then Derkovits scholar from 1987. 2000: Munkácsy Award; Vienna City scholarship; 2004: NKÖM Award (One Week Exhibition). Lives in Budapest. He is still a college student in the development of Hungarian new painting with Zoltán Ádám, József Bullás and István Mazzag. In the early 1980s he painted dark-toned images with few motifs, but sometimes with powerful surrounds (hills, trees, canals, stairs). These signposts are also becoming more and more distant, sometimes disappearing in the first half of the 1990s. For the painter, the light reflection of monochrome surfaces becomes more important thanks to the factum. In his 1995 exhibition, eight pictures were installed, confronting dark blue and ocher canvases.
András Bernát is an important figure in Hungarian painting. At the time of his departure, he painted dark-toned images of little motifs in the '80s, which in the' 90s were replaced by pulsatingly abstract surfaces, which nowadays became a trademark. Its dominant motif is its twisted, swirling shape, with its strong dynamism and pulsating motion. Bernas is spending long nights painting his paintings, which are homogeneous at first glance. The evolving forms are dynamically changing in the light they are exposed and, by the strange mix of the aluminum powder mixed with paint, newer structures are released.
Bernat's pictures are in continuous motion and nothing can grasp them. Bernat's color usage is characterized by subtle transitions, and the color of the pictures sometimes reflects the sensual mood of József Egry's works.
