Márton Nemes broke into the contemporary Hungarian art scene a few years ago. He’s been constantly experimenting with new materials and techniques, and has been challenging our prior knowledge of an abstract painting. Besides the traditional painting instruments, he uses bags, different kind of foils, scraps of wood, and other unusual materials. His works are not only individual paitings hanging on the wall, but sometimes expanding into the space to fuse with the surrounded larger installation.
Nemes’s colorful, iridescent, spectacular and expressive canvases offer a true winter treat. On his last series Nemes again experiments with „controlled colour-tracing”. What happens when he blows the paint to the canvas throught thin, broken plastic foils, or through a torn wood, or puts the paint on the canvas with a reconsturced roller? Ethereally closed, yet endless spaces appear, which sometimes remind us to the structure of chrystals, to the Northern Light or to the moment when fire and water meets.
Nemes’s ambitions is clearly decipharable from his formalist search, in which the movements, the dynamic compositions, the exuberance of colors, all suggest his major aspirations to show the unsurpassable and infinite power of nature.
