Extasy

100 x 100 x 3 cm | Painting | 2019
Description
Ágnes Verebics’s work in faces and masks which hide behind devices attached to machines is calling for the ancestral genetics.
 In recent years, she has developed a special technique painting on aluminum plate and gives a futuristic look to her fantastic figurative work. As she stated, “…exaggerated human and animal body parts inspire and dominate the power of my works… I use fragmentary body images as vehicles to explore the sexuality, violence and the wider human condition;
equally important are questions of what lies behind these faces, what is revealed and what stays out of sight. In the case of self- portraits, what, one may ask, what does one see when facing oneself”.

Living and working in Budapest.

In her art, the connection between individuality and the surrounding world is constantly under scrutiny. The boundaries of the self keep shifting until it swallows up the surrounding world entirely.
