Eroticism is an antidote to death - is a tested topic sentenc in sexualpsychology.
It points to a quality of aliveness that we experience in intense connection, discovery, or accomplishment.
How do you define Eroticism in the most mystical sense of the word?
What is the origin of human desire?
The current exhibition explores, the oldest human intincts: our need for passion.
The 9 exhibited artworks aim to pinpoint how to to sustain desire, and the dialectic piece between two sets of conflicting fundamental needs.
So thinking about eroticism, for me it's a language. It isn't just a behavior. And it's the poetic of that language im interested in.
And that poetry is described by sexualpsychologists as 'erotic intelligence'.
And if I look at it phenomena as an intelligence, then it's something that you cultivate.
What are the ingredients? Imagination, playfulness, novelty, curiosity, mystery. But the central agent, the mold to to the desire, is really that piece called the imagination.
These are the topics we aim to anwser on the vernissage at 06/06/19 7pm

And now we come to the most alarming delusion of them all: the idea that other people dont matter. Their feelings, their needs.
Plato once said: imagine a cave where those inside never see the outside world, instead they see shadows of that world projected on the cave wall.
The world they see on the shadows is not the real world. But it is real to them. If you would show them the world as it actually is, they would reject it as incomprehensible.
Now what if instead being in a cave, you would be out in the world, except you couldnt see it.
Becasue you werent looking. Becasue you trusted the world you saw trought he prisim is the real world.
But there is a difference.
You see, unlikly in the allegory of the cave, where the people are real and the shadows are fals, here other people are the shadows.
Their faces. Their lives. Their feelings.
This is the delusion of the narcisist who belives they are alone real.
Their feelings are the only feelings that maters becasue other people are just shadows. And shadows don't feel.
Becasue they are not real.
But what if everyone lived in caves?
Than no one would be real.
Not even you.
Unless one day you woke up and left the cave. How strange the world would look after a lifetime of staring at the shadows.

Start with a general declaration of intellectual modesty. Confess you don't know exactly with the government should do what wars should achieve, or how good relationships work.
No one knows very much. Wisdom starts with Owning up to ignorance.
You get the other person to say what they think and gradually together you investigate the answers.
If the other is confident or overconfident (everyone knows this already) you must be supremely patient with this kind of bravado. Take a lot of time and be ready to have chats over many days.
With the right encouragement people can work out things for themselves and delete errors in their own reasoning.
You don't cast blame, you'll neve teach anyone anything by making them feel stupid.
We all started in a cave.
But we don’t have to stay there.

Ma lettem 30.
Pont mint neked, úgy nekem sincs fogalmam arról, hogy az életem számos aspektusa merre is tart.
Viszont szeretnék summázni pár dolgot az elmúlt évtizedekből.
Szerencsés vagyok amiért olyan emberek vesznek körül akik nem 'annak ellenére', hanem 'azért' szeretnek aki vagyok. Remélem ők tudják mennyire fontosak nekem és milyen nagy hatással vannak az életemre. Nagyon sok ember szeretett amíg az nem lettem aki ma vagyok. Van aki most is velünk van. Van aki már nincs. Van olyan aki nemrég lépett az életembe. Míg akadnak olyanok akik már azelőtt a szívükbe zártak hogy megszülettem volna. Én nekik nagyon hálás vagyok.
Szerintem nem az számít az életben hogy mid van, hanem hogy mit kezdesz vele. Fontos hogy legyenek színek a palettádon, igen. A színeket összekeverheted és létrehozhatsz valami olyat ami neked a legjobban tetszik hogy megvalósítsd vele az elképzeléseidet.
Senki nem élheti helyetted az életedet. Senki. Soha ne feledd, hogy minden emberi lény más, de nem született még tökéletes ember. Szerintem az életben az a szép, hogy mindenki kap egy esélyt arra hogy behozzon valamit ebbe az életbe amitől a világ egy érdekesebb hely lesz.
Tudom, hogy nem érzed, mivel ez nehezen mérhető, de nagyon nagy szerepet játszol azoknak az életében akikkel megismerkedtél. Minden egyes találkozásotok során hagysz magadból valamit velük amiért ők nagyon hálásak.
És végül de legfontosabb talán az a megfigyelés hogy senki sem tud fejlődni és növekedni, ha csak nincs elfogadva olyannak amilyen. Értékelni azt ami, és nem azt ami lehet.
Ez az élet egy jó élet,

Mental health note: despite the fact that you are not all that you could be, the proper attitude towards yourself should be the same, as towards someone you genuinely cared for.

You have to live and die honestly. And I guarantee you this will end. You can live for the good or for the worse 50-60-80ish years but sooner or later you will hear a knock on your door. Be that the universe, god or eternity. And when eternity is at the door, there is only one question left to answer. ‘How did you live your life?’ ‘Who are you?’ Are you a cluster of anxties on the neuroticism coordinate scale? Or are you a person who left his handprints on the sky, so others, later, may follow…

Confronting our feelings and giving them appropriate expression always takes strength, not weakness. It takes strength to acknowledge our anger, and sometimes more strength yet to curb the aggressive urges anger may bring and to channel them into nonviolent outlets. It takes strength to face our sadness and to grieve and to let our grief and our anger flow in tears when they need to. It takes strength to talk about our feelings and to reach out for help and comfort when we need it.

This force, life, is not sentimental. Like the earth itself, it knows only the hard facts of struggle with death. All you can do is hope and trust that when you have served its needs faithfully, there may still remain some glimmer of the life you once knew.

People say pop art is ‘old fashioned’, or ‘outdated’ or simply 'dead', but these people have no idea where pop-art originates, where it comes from.
This genre is most associated with the work of New York artists of the early 1960s such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, but was present in the UK in various cities from the mid-1950s onwards in the level of the working community.
Pop-Art emerged as a huge-middle finger to Abstract Expressionism. Abstract Expressionists searched for trauma in the soul, while Pop artists searched for traces of the same trauma in the mediated world of advertising, cartoons, and popular imagery at large.
Although Pop art encompasses a wide variety of work with very different attitudes and postures, much of it is somewhat emotionally removed.
But don't think its fluff art or relaxing, or nice. Pop Art emerged to take back the art from a snob elite, to the real people. Art should be relatable.
And all this is at stake now. Who owns art? Can we allow for a decadent artist community, that is the minority, to hijack art? Our art?
Of course not. Pop art should be conflict, and compromise, and a certain synthesis of global trends on a massive scale while being relatable, and approachable.
It's new, every time, and very, very exciting!
People say Pop-Art had its time and is currently dying, or even died.
But not on my watch.
I'm going to paint whatever I want, whenever I want, however I want, as long as it's pure.

The performance of intensive pop art is dignified and intensified by the action of putting onto paper the migrations through the deepest sections of out mind. This makes it colourful, sensual, perverted, melancholic, dispirited, snobbish and debauched at the same time. My pictures explore and embody these neuron dialogues.

We all imagine ourselves the agents of our destiny, capable of determining our own fate. But have we truly any choice in when we rise or when we fall? Or does a force larger than ourselves bid us our direction? Is it evolution that takes us by the hand? Does science point our way? Or is it the beacon of Art who intervenes, keeping us safe?

34 y/o Canadian man, lost both his parents in a car accident. Commissioned tattoo designs to commemorate and cope with loss. A solid black line tattoo is used to denote experiences associated with mourning and suffering. These emblems are placed on the ankles, wrists and arms. The meaning associated with these tattoos is easily personalized to fit each person who receives one or more. Thick tattoos take their roots from black cloth armbands traditionally worn as a sign of mourning. These circles of cloth were worn over the sleeve of a shirt or jacket or just on the skin in the days and weeks following the passing of a loved one. In order to carry the memories of a lost friend or family member past the duration of wearing a physical arm band, many people choose to have black arm bands tattooed on their skin. This serves as a permanent, personal reminder of a special person and shows an individual's dedication to the remembrance of the person he lost. Black armband tattoos are commonly placed on the wrists and ankles. Some people elect to have bands on their upper arm near the shoulder or on the top of the forearm by the elbow. Black armband tattoos are placed as single or double bands and vary in thickness depending on the recipient's wishes.

These days, you can invent an app, start a blog, sell shit online.
But if you're an artist, you're gonna need to star with one work.
And if it's real enough...
And honest enough...
And if it's made of everything that's made you...
Where you come from... Who you knew...
Then you may have a chance a connecting with everyone else.
And maybe that's your ticket.

We have so many people to be thankful for, who helped us get so far. Some of you are here, some are far away and some are even in Heaven. All of us have special ones who have loved us into being. Would you just take, along with me, a few minutes, watch this video in silence, and think of the people who have helped you become who you are, those who have cared about you and wanted what was best for you in life. Just a few minutes of your day.

In the beginning there was discovery. A confusion of elements. The first snowfall of impossible change. Old lives undone, left behind. Strange faces made familiar. New nightmares to challenge sleep. New friends to feel safe with. Only then comes control. The need to impose order unto chaos, through determination, through study, through struggle. All in defiance of a thundering truth. Searching for reason. Finding reason in art.

There are many ways to define our fragile existence; many ways to give it meaning. But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images: fears, loves, regrets… for it’s the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil, success with disappointment… this is what separates us, what makes us human. And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.

To survive in this world, we hold close to us those on whom we depend. We trust in them our hopes, our fears... But what happens when trust is lost? Where do we run, when things we believe in vanish before our eyes? When all seems lost, the future unknowable, our very existence in peril... All we can do is run.

My artworks are a way for me to remember.
It is man’s ability to remember that sets us apart. We are the only species concerned with past. Our memories give us voice and bear witness to history, so that others might learn; so they might celebrate our triumphs and be warned of our failures.

The sun rises on a new dawn, yet few of us realize the debt we owe to those responsible for this, to those who dwell among us, anonymous, seemingly ordinary, who destiny brought together to repair, to heal, to save us from ourselves, and they're still out there among us, in the shadows, in the light, we pass them on the street without a glance, never suspecting, never knowing.
Do they even know yet? That they are bound together by a common purpose?
A glaring reality, to be extraordinary, and when destiny does anoint them, how do they hide from it? How long can they dwell in the shadows before either fate or their own flawed humanity draws them out into the light again?
09.06.2016. Budapest, Hungary
The Earth is large. Large enough that you think you can hide from anything. From Fate. From God. If only you found a place far enough away. So you run. To the edge of the Earth. Where all is safe again. Quiet, and warm. The solace of salt air. The peace of danger left behind. The luxury of grief. And maybe, for a moment, you believe you have escaped.

Where does it come from, this quest? This need to solve life's mysteries, when the simplest of questions can never be answered. Why are we here? What is the soul? Why do we dream? Perhaps we'd be better off not looking at all. Not doubting, not yearning. That's not human nature. Not the human heart. That is not why we are here.

Have come a long way.
My first studio.
Long way since renting the neighbours rooftop-storage unit with no lights, water and only one electriciy outlet (on the right)
Since the building was non finished the the insulation was more of a gesture, than an actually functioning element of the building, but hey, at least i got great ventilaiton. Both winter and summer. Fun fact: once acrylyc paint coretemperature drops bellow zero, the water forms cristals and even after melting the paint is ruined.
Long way is behind me but the one thing that never changed is that in the hearth of what I do is innovation.

In the 1960s that charismatic power started edging over to accommodate commercialized culture and a new industry of art, when aesthetic value fell from prominence to parity with Pop art and Andy Warhol's idea of business art, a recognition that art has become a business and making money in business is an art. One of many artists to follow Warhol is Jeff Koons, a stockbroker turned artist who also borrowed imagery from popular culture and made millions.

I find it amazing, that unlike for example Dada, whose entirely negative aim was to subvert and undermine the values of a bourgeois establishment which they blamed for the carnage of World War I, Pop-art sought to reflect the social values and environment from which it sprang.

I feel a sense of pride in the fact that the president of the United States of America is drinking the same Coca-Cola as I do.
Pop art is based on modern popular culture and the mass media, especially as a critical or ironic comment on traditional fine art values.
"I don't care about money i just want to be famous" -
Btw, this was said by Marilyn Monroe, not Batman, ok? On an unrelated note, it is much harder to spot Batman, but, hey, you can't blame the guy. it comes with the job. He is more interested in money as well. Without the $$$ he would be just B**** W**** . Bummer.
The biggest similarity between the Dark Knight and the Iconic Lady is that there is no point under God's green earth where people wouldn't recognize both. The "Real Woman" and the "Superhero without Superpowers". You know them, maybe you don't like them but they are a part of your life like Starbucks, WiFi or the STOP sign. Pop Culture icon is not cool any more.
Imagine Tyler Durden losing his shit when seeing his face on a T-shirt.
But in the end, he is one of the above mentioned: a legend.
But you open a coke in New York, Honduras or South Korea, it's gonna be the same God damn Coke, and you can take that into the bank.

Global warming is real.
Planned parenthood should be funded.
Guns should be illegal.
Breastfeeding is natural.
Having preferences in appearences of a partner isn't racist.
Woman should be able to choose to abort or not.
Rape is never the victim's fault
Advocating prevention techniques isn't victim blaming.
Gays deserve basic human rights.
Smoking cigarettes is a shitty idea.
Transgender people are their preffered gender.
Nonbinary people exist.
Woman AND MEN get raped.
Not all muslims are terrorists. Not even most. Not even half. Not even a lot.
Carnivorous animals will NOT be helathy on a vegan diet.
Abuse in a relationship goes both ways.
If a man sleeping around is okay, so is a woman.
A "side chick" is just cheating. Don't glorify it.
Vaccines don't cause autism. Not even if your hot yoga teacher says it.
A person isn't an amoral, pseudo-intellectual neckbeard just because he or she is agnostic or atheist.
Worldviews may change across countries.
TL;DR the world is NOT black and white & don't be an asshole.
if you don't agree with some of this, that's totally okay too!

I'm no painter.
I'm a psychologist.
But psychology is similar to art: it has no consensus.
Its just a set of paradigms, trough-out time. Every new school of thought falsificates the on before it. Thesis, antithesis, synthesis. But there is one thought, one law, one rule no one violated, and that everyone yet, has accepted:
"We believe in human development"
No matter how deep your hell is, you can just keep walking. To feel the possibility of being better person day by day. That's what being a human is all about.
And being an artist.

Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never be fully okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too. If you're reading this, congratulations you made it to today. You made it.

Trauma is a word with Greek origin, which no one cares about. Trauma is a point in your life where nothing will be the same after, as it was before.
The painintgs displayed here are an individual effort in making emotional reperation after events of personal loss and shattering tragedy on an individual level.
The reperation of the trauma is done, on a psychological level, with coping. In psychology, coping is expending conscious effort to solve personal and interpersonal problems, and seeking to master, minimize or tolerate stress or conflict.The effectiveness of the coping efforts depend on the type of stress and/or conflict, the particular individual, and the circumstances. The active part of my effort’s is to put paintbrush to canvas.
The acryliyc paintings, don on fibrewood displayed in Liebling, harmonized under the unified concept of “Loud and Close” are my testament of protesting death like a curled up fist, in order to bring coherence into my identity
In their form, these paintings depict the dynamism, of exhilaration and transandence, capturing the perfect moment of balance and harmony, which can be compared to the moment of catharsis, which is the absolution from the loss, and are oriented toward managing the emotions that accompany the perception of stress.

I have acquired a BA and MA in Psychology at the University of Pecs, where I also attended the Applied Psychology PhD Program.
I have never been formally introduced to Art trough Institutionalized education, although visual culture has always fascinated me.
Life sometime takes an unexpected turn for the worse: in 2009 I lost my mother, which was the catalyst to why I have started painting; as an emotionally corrective process, to leave my mark on canvas. Everything I know, I have learned on my own, based on online resources.

Whit this artwork I have wone a special award on the IX. FRINGE fesztival, Hungary,
Thank you for believing in my art.
isn’t actually saying goodbye
it’s just another way to tell the time
and I’m ticking
she is, as she always was
placing love above all else
then protests that I use the word love
too freely in paintings
and I should really just say what I mean
and I suppose what I mean most is that
she’s been buying me time
on a maxed out credit card
arms scarred from selling her own blood
to pay down the debt
tells me she doesn’t mind going broke
just so long as I can give her a little sweat
I’ve been making enough
to pay her the compliment
of not quitting..
of not sitting
when standing is required
she only asks that I put the effort in
and in return she’s willing
to pin a paper heart to her chest
then do her best impression
of a target
if by the end you haven’t hurt me
then you didn’t even try
so I do my best impression
of a surgeon
cutting purple hearts out of my own
use my veins like thread
then have hurt sewn to our skin like medals
because when the bleeding stops
and that dust settles
all we have are our wounds
to wear like decorations
upon our chest
She does her best impression of a war
tells me not to count my pride among casualties
because maybe faith means never keeping score
she says there’s more to effort than just switching gears
and in terms of what one should give in life
sweat holds more value than tears
you have to try
life is composed of sound and fury
whatever noise is left in me
will be twice as loud when I try
so I plug myself into the idea of going the distance
and I amplify
I’ve lived long enough to learn
too many choices can destroy a man
I will make no exodus
I’ll be around long enough
to watch uncertainty bid us farewell
the echo our names into the crater
caused by the impact
of when our lack of conviction fell
you’ve never had to sell me on the idea
of absolute certainty in the trustworthiness of another
It’s supposed to hurt.
At least I tried.
20/03/2015, Budapest, Paloma Galery
"Loud and Close" titeled exhibition opening night
The content of the exhibition is a testament that lends weight to the belief you can achieve personal growth, based on trauma.
"After a traumatic car accident in 2011 I had to realize the only obligation in life is to be who you are, say what you think, and do what you believe in, because time is of the essence. Your heart beats 8600 times per day, and let every heartbeat be a gentle reminder that Death comes verry Loud and is extremely Close." - Gyuricza
