Time remapping

Do your remember looking at a painted portrait or one in a photo when you were a child, wishing that it moved or imagining that it moves and the person was speaking to you…?

Eszter Szabó’s (Budapest 1979) works bridge the past, present and future in their themes as well as the methods of their making.

Painted with the traditional water-colour technique, the people she portrays in her pictures remain fixed on latex or become animated on a screen.

We see everyday people, ones whom we know personally or we could as well know them because they are the archetypes of so many around us. They are them – they are us.

We share their features, their lives, the small and insignificant details and also the great events in their petite personal histories that we do not see here, nevertheless, we know so well that we can tell their stories. Or, in fact, they tell our stories. Kozma Zsolt
