“Watercolour has a life of its own, says Laura Cumming. You make your mark on the page and very soon it’s not entirely yours. The paint sinks into the surface, seeping, running, spreading disastrously or drying too fast, forming suggestive blots or stains. No matter how quick you are – or how slow – it does not stay put, or remain stable. The colour comes, and it goes, drying unpredictably by evaporation.”
“My work is the effort to define a thought, the intent to express an emotion. It is an answer that always ends up in a question, a cycle continuously repeated over the time, over the years: a process, after all, very familiar to my greek cells. It is the physical peak point of an internal almost alchemical mutation. It is the synthesis of a series of complicated reactions, wishing to become a clean and simple, almost understood, distillate.” Evi Tsana
Werner Horvath had tried to portray in his paintings, the reality we rely on is not so real at all. The world that we live in is understood only as we construct it ourselves. For example, colours only exist in our consciousness, therefore are not “real”. The same is for objects and relationships. Finally they take into consideration the fact that we live in a symbolic world. Not only do we view Stalin as a Russian politician but also a symbol of dictatorship and cruelty. Horvath uses current political events at the inspiration for his work and often the colours and shapes used help to portray his opinion on our society.
I am very proud to partecipate in the PORTART events, with my series of artworks called “KORE”.
