The selection by Ani Molnár Gallery aims to represent the doyen of geometric abstraction, Tamás Konok’s specific line-based structures, grounded in the European tradition of line aesthetics, and to highlight connections between his diverse artistic periods from collages and monotypes of the 1960’s to his artworks after the turn of the millennium. The pictorial elements are not structured according to symmetry and repetitive rhythms, but through “motiveconcentration”. In fact, often times the artist enhances a main motive – a form that evokes figurative associations, and thus stand on the border of figuration and abstraction. His artworks refer to the theme of existence through abstraction, and devote great attention to the joint study of line and space, but also sign systems and visual topoi.
