Chaos means in vulgar tounge maze, an unwanted condition, in which we would rather not spend time. On the other hand, chaos means infinite space, unshapen matter, from which the universe came into existance. Latter approaches “Chaos” by PAF. Stratification of the paint, varied facture provides strained tone to the picture, which plants the fear of the unknowable into the viewer, but this is only the surface. If we lose ourselves in the artwork, the chaotic spectacle could become an order without any eventuality.Gestures create a conscious system, they are forces taking effect on eachother in tackle on the painting, mostly the black and the white ones. In the space of strained relations of dark and light, as the center of the composition, there is a red gesture, which is one of the most important elements in PAF’s art. This is the substratum of the painting’s order, which vindicates and terminates the aforsaid discrepancy at the same time. Unity of gestures, colors and matter on PAF’s artwork is materialization of the creativeness chaos possesses.

„Cloister” and „City Lights” by Róbert Csáki show similarity in colours, touch and in representation of lights. The landscapes on the pictures despite their strangeness carry the sense, that we have seen them before. They could be fantasies or memories, which are beyond control, surrounded by versatilty, transiency. On „Cloister” from the background’s infinite, deep shade buildings meet the eye, which are dissevered from their environment because of light perfusing them. Whiteness of the church’s tower has a central role, it rules the painting. Constructivity of this colour is determining in case of „City Lights” too. The two white paintstains overwrite the harmony of deep colours on the artwork. However what seems breaking of the picture’s order is in fact a necessary component. Reddish spots on „Cloister” are also telling of a conscious, precise composition. They change the whole painting, terminate the accidental aspect of the sinister,transitory landscapes. Inter alia these tiny paintstains contain the genius of Róbert Csáki.Their startling strength is realization, turning into stationarity of riddling interaction of tones and light and unlimited visions.
