To visualize temporality is a great aritstic pledge. “Hidden Time” by PAF interprets time as a mechanical construction at first sight,inasmuch as the circles scooped into the harsh surface of the painting evoke the spur wheels of a clock. At the center of the artwork, as contact point of all these components, there is a clockface. PAF represents measurable, objective time. Nevertheless this isn’t the full extenct of temporality. The paining’s dark colors, it’s scrachty,mysterious surface, infinite inner spaces do not suggest the domesticity,concreteness of the illustrated topic. Technical complexity of the picture carries the possibility of mental compelxity: the painting tells about time that is accessible to all, about subjective time, even about the time of the artwork. The picture is bisected by a vertical red gesture,which is dominating the whole painting, and could be the intervention into operation of time. With this powerful gesture PAF takes possesion of the unknowable on “Hidden Time”.

The Artist in Residence 2014 in Wien closed with great success. Our Gallery was represented by Boglárka Nagy. A performance and also oil paintings were shown at the exhibition.
„Demons and Chaos I-IV” by PAF create a whole. The four artworks share the same system of gestures, they are perfect continuation of each other. The dynamic, powerful gestures don’t respect their frames, stretch beyond their measures, so the for paintings become permeable. The „Demons and Chaos” series is an open artwork, both visually and mentally. The interlocking gestures create a chaotic, deep, quintessential space in the picture, and in some cases they become dark, demonic figures. Variety of touch, colors, consistency of the paint the viewer can always pioneer new figures in trying to be released of the demons haunting them, overcome the chaos, reveal the secret hidden by the paint streaks. New recognitions lead to other representations. Accordingly reflexive relations of the viewer and the artwork can change the whole painting, is able to generate very different emotional impressions. This mental openness makes „Demons and Chaos” series by PAF unfailing, always vivifies it in new and other lives.
