In The Focus

On „Flux LVIII” by Imre Barna Balázs a dynamic system of gestures is appearing on the surface of the painting, blazing in the colors and lights of dawn. The gestures vivify the picture, while they transmit the stillness of motionless stationarity. Their various colors, variant intensity of their stratification do not result tension in the space of the picture. The ground of the artwork and the gestures on it resolve to eachother, creating indissoluble whole, sense of pure harmony. Though the gestures seem stochiastic, they are part of a larger order, in which every detail has it’s own space and function. They fill the space of the artwork with movement and stationarity at the same time, as part of the conscious composition. In the shapes of gestures we can observe the forms of nature on „Flux LVIII”. The painting by Imre Barna Balázs reflects how the artitst’s, or even the viewer’s inner world translates, recreates well known sceneries. Thus it is connetcted with the reality, not only visualizes it, but unfolds it’s connection to mental, spiritual contents with the instruments of painting.

In The Focus

On “Flux LXIII” by Imre Barna Balázs we get into an other reality. The abstract painting, wich creates an organic system of gestures is inspired by forms of nature. On the pale blue surface of the picture there are luminous shapes of paint. They can be understood as a reflection, which appears on the water, an element of the living nature. We don’t know the real landscape, only the reproduction. The painting itself takes one more step foreward, since it is a reproduction of a reflection, i.e. a reproduction which has no original. The “Flux LXIII” faces a philosophycal question as old as art itself: is art able to be more than the reproduction of reality? If we look at the artwork by Imre Barna Balázs, we can realize, that the important thing is not the similarity between the painting and reality. The picture’s composition without any eventuality, creates an own, inner order, which leads the viewer’s perspective into the depth of the painting, to a mystical darkness, a distant sphere. It doesn’t urge us, to imagine, build the orginal reality, what is only reflected. Contrarily, it creates a substantive world.
