The Erika Deák Gallery is delighted to announce its new exhibition, the most recent works of Zsófi Barabás, entitled The weight of clouds. On the occasion of the exhibition the opening speech will be held by art historian Luca Adamik, on 4 May 2022, at 6 pm. We are pleased to announce that the event finally will be open to the public.
Zsófi Barabás’s most characteristic features are the indicative, dense, and scarce compositions, and as well the act of combining organic and geometric forms. Her biomorphic forms often build on, yet unfold from each other. Spreading out horizontally, they often seem to break through the thresholds of canvases into the great vastness.
Barabás’s artistic language is defined by a conscious, yet a constantly present experimental attitude, by an urge of searching for new ways in representation, in terms of concept and execution. The duality of plane and space, the reinterpretation of compositional elements in 3D formats and the need to plastically reinterpret pictorial thoughts are all aspects that become indicative in Barabás’ body of work from time to time.
The title of the exhibition ‘The Weight of Clouds’ represents a multi-faceted meaning in respect to the artworks. It associates the illusion of clouds with light and worry-free thoughts and contemplates on their heavy weight, an often forgotten natural aspect, at the same time. A similar duality is an essence of these new works by Barabás’. Seemingly effortless and harmonic colour compositions could refer to an artistic daydreamer. Nevertheless, deep and sometimes meditative thoughts and most importantly, quiet contemplation is what defines the true meaning of these works.
The full exhibition can be viewed on the gallery's website and social media pages, and will be open for viewing during opening hours.
