„Beach” by Róbert Csáki calls the mood of sultry, endless summer days into mind. On the picture, a wierd, friendly figure is bathing in the peaceful water. There is unsophisticated grace in his presence, with his shiny life saver and vast, azure beachball he is dispossessing the stylized artwork. He’s looking at us with his tiny eyes, which transmit ease and gloom at the same time. The whole painting is defined by this gentle ambivalence. It’s atmoshere is filled with airiness, childlike joy because of the scenery of the toys, but still the waft of the lifeless flowers makes it heavy with tiredness and solitude. The lovely figure on „Beach” by Csáki invites us into the painting’s world. As if he’s asking us to play with him, or simply share the worm summer silence, timeless stationarity, drowsy brightness.
