Artist Spotlight: Botond Gagyi

Artist Botond Gagyi was born in Tîrgu-Mureş, Romania, and currently lives and works in Cluj-Napoca. Of this recent body of work, Gagyi says, “This is the story that I try to compress into every one of my paintings: the excitement of life. The experience is born between the omissions, repainting, erasures and piling up of paint.”

There’s tension in these paintings, and he explains it’s the result of his image-making procedures which are “simultaneously constructive and deconstructive, the found and transformed digital image becomes alienated from its original content, it springs into its own existence to be filled with new content, to become part of the emerging visual structure.”
