Patrick Heide Contemporary Art is delighted to present 39, an exhibition with new and recent works by Hungarian artist Károly Keserü.

About

Marking Keserü’s sixth solo presentation at the gallery, the show brings together a group of 39 works, which could not be more varied and multifaceted; a selection, which is quiet exceptional and unprecedented. Some of the drawings in ink and graphite are static, dense and two-dimensional, others open and incredibly dynamic, rhythmically filling whole pages with wave like structures, compositions of dots and lines or scribbles that merge to territorial arrangements or primordially inspired designs. 

Keserü’s drawings and paintings employ a reduced language, always playful, even light, yet at times disturbingly complex. Charged with open and hidden references to art history, folk culture, textiles and music, the thematic allusions are generally unpretentious and stripped to their essential basics. On first glance one risks taking some of Keserü’s drawings too lightly. As he quotes artists and movements from Modernism to Post-Modernism, we instantaneously claim to recognize compositions and colours. However, engaging with the works in more depth and questioning their aura of familiarity, the works astonish the viewer with new perspectives and interpretations.
