Based in Budapest, Hungary, Szinyova’s paintings are composed of a distinct process of layer making that structures and defines each surface. Successive layers of acrylic paint are applied with airbrush, squeegee and palette knife, then let to dry in order to form a chronology of mark-making and blunt gesture that unfolds across each canvas. Earlier brushstrokes become concealed, while others remain obscured behind the filter of further layers. Szinyova’s elaboration of surface is not narrative, but rather refers to the process by which each mark is revealed and dissolves back into the composition of the medium.
For this series of work, the industrial hues of grey, ochre, violet and spearmint reflect on the imagery that influences Szinyova’s painting, gathered from browsing the internet for photographs of modernist environments. The artist translates the experience of browsing, and the urban human environment, as an abstracted memory of kinetic gestures and hidden content.
