Judit Horvath Loczi is a Budapest based contemporary artist.
Her art is full of playfulness and orderly preciseness at the same time. Her toolbar is diverse: besides classical materials, she likes to discover and use unordinary things.
In her artworks, she likes to explore the colored reflections of light and shadow. As inspiration, she always uses situations from everyday life or a personal story which she paints in an extremely abstract way and visualizes with basic geometrical forms. That is the way how she processes the events of her life, how she releases tensions, how she reminds herself of happy moments. Every artwork is a page of a diary.
In 2004 she started as a landscape architect and began her career in this field but soon she found out that the artistic relations of landscape architecture would not satisfy her needs. Between 2004 and 2007 I attended Budai Artschool. She also completed a marketing design course during this period and later between 2005 and 2007 she finished a Colour Dynamics and Engineering training at Budapest University of Technology and Economics. This last one is exceptionally important in her life because of her master-teacher: Tamas Konok, who had been her mentor and helper on her professional way.
From 2010 to 2011 she studied art management, exhibition organizing and other trades of being a curator at Werk Academy. From 2011 to 2014 she attended and successfully completed a Visual Representation Art (Graphic Art) course at Budapest Metropolitan University.
Since then she became an associate member of the Society of Hungarian Painters, Hungarian Artist’s Book Association and the Association of Hungarian Artists.
Several artists have had an influence on her professional career, e.g.: Tamas Konok, Janos Megyik, Imi Knoebel, Istvan Haasz or Louise Nevelson.
She actively applies for local and foreign prizes, awards and competitions (she exhibited in Venice, Milano, New York and in London as well). From 2008 she continuously takes part in group and solo exhibitions and visit Art Camps. Her paintings were awarded Barcsay Prize in 2015. This prize is given annually to Hungarian painters under the age of 35.
In 2017 she got qualified at the Budapest Art Mentor program, and in 2018 she is one of the 10 winners of the Hungary Emerging art contest.
In the past few years, a sort of settling can be experienced in her works. Her new series of art contains shaped canvases, laser-cut wood panels, therefore, they construct a path between two-dimensional and three-dimensional space. In the future she plans to go on and investigate the perforated surfaces and its shadows and the meeting-points and contingency of painting and extensity.
