|Gábor Arion Kudász shows us our lost natural spaces, the landscapes rewritten by humanity following the rules of classic image-making. His landscapes are vast still-lives on the edges of populated land and open areas, with all the material things that may well be seen as the negative effect of humanity on nature. The absurdity of his pictures stems from the subject itself and the manner of representation. Bridges and roundabouts, construction sites and billboards sit in the landscape so organically, it almost hurts. But they certainly force us to reconsider our notions of beauty and what is natural. / Gabriella Csizek
Kudász Gábor Arion az elveszített természeti tereket és az ember által átrajzolt tájakat, a klasszikus képalkotás módszerét követve mutatja meg. Mintha tájképei valójában hatalmas csendéletek is lennének a lakott és a nyílt táj közötti mezsgyén, mindazzal a tárgyi világgal, ami az emberi jelenlét akár negatív következményeként is felfogható. Képei abszurditását maga a kép témája, másrészt pedig az ábrázolás módja is adja. Hídszerkezetek, körforgalom, építési terület, óriásplakátok és a szemét olyan organikusan épülnek a tájba, hogy az már szinte fáj. A szépség és a természetes fogalmának újragondolására is késztetve bennünket itt az ezredforduló után. / Csizek Gabriella
