Szabolcs Veres

 

presented by Spencer Brownstone Gallery

 

 

Born in 1983 in Satu Mare, Romania

 

 

Is a young Romanian painter who lives and works in the region of Transylvania. His bold gestural oil paintings are mostly figurative and merge landscape, human and animal subject matter in large canvases that are often produced in series. His work represents a bold neo-expressionist re-imagining of art historical themes including ‘the hunt’ and classical portraiture. Veres employs these traditions as starting points in his canvases. He then proceeds to break them down in paintings that dramatically collapse distinctions between subject and object and push his work toward a sumptuous, often disturbingly visceral resolution.

 

Szabolcs Veres was born in 1983, Satu Mare, Romania and lives and works in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He has participated in exhibitions at the MODEM Centre for Modern and Contemporary Art and the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC), Bucharest, Romania and is expected to receive his PhD in painting from the University of Arts and Design Cluj-Napoca, Romania in 2011.
