Orsolya Lengl is a contemporary Hungarian artist. In her art she combines surreal, geometric, abstract, and photorealistic elements to diversify her visual world.
To describe her personal painting style we can say that she works on pictures that give up classical perspective, the construction of space and the traditional rules of compositions. Instead, she puts the different elements of the picture on each other to create a layered texture. The viewer’s look is led along with vertical and horizontal directions. She has also chosen topics referring to these painting methods. They are about the strict circumstances that influence people how they can exist in a certain spatial area. What we truly see in her works is uncertain. Reality and fiction are mixed, and the questions raised by the paintings remain open.
In order to create this strange atmosphere, she combines constructive forms with smooth, airy surfaces and luster effects. The viewer can easily find him or herself in the feel of some spatial delusion. To achieve this, she needs to be really conscious about choosing the right places to depict. The perfect scene could be described as a symbiosis of industrial and organic environment, observed from an unconventional point of view. The result is like a screen that shows the basic situation through various filters. What makes the visual appearance diverse is the simultaneous presence of surrealistic, geometric, abstract and photorealistic fragments.
