Flow Series

Looking at Csaba Szegedi's Flow painting cycle, we are transported out of space and time. Each image is a fragment torn out, a segment from the web of continuity. We have the feeling as if we are looking at one piece of a film reel, which itself is made up of film strips. Fragments of memory and fragments of time come together to form an endless story, where each image is a temporal presence in itself. Horizontal visual elements, like horizontally drawn brush marks further divide the canvas and break up the flow of time with new beats. The compositions are rhythmic, melodic, and evoke musical associations...

(Dr Judit Szeifert)

In all circumstances, Csaba Szegedi insists on preserving the sensual, lively character of the things he observes and examines, so that his works breathe, live, have independence, are brave and liberated. It is precisely the preserved memory of the concrete visual experience and the tittering between the abstract motifs that are now only a body of color, the spectator attitude forced to constantly change its perspective, that is the constant source of vitamins...

...in his current pictures, he reached the joint operation of awareness and instinct, which is now difficult to separate. After playing with tectonic forms organized around a central motif, sleepily swaying or aimlessly floating shapes, he now arranges his works in dynamically undulating lines. It arranges, i.e. rather lets the colored stripes flow together and next to each other in a rhythmic division. This unceasing movement will be one of the defining, titular features of the works...
