Czene, Márta
Born in Budapest in 1982

I'm interested in every form of the picture, and they can become sources of my works, no matter in what medium they were created, whether they are part of the modern culture of images, or was bequeathed us by the mediaeval masters; be it a film, a comic book, a digital or analogue photo, a commercial, a painting, or a sculpture, or even the immediate sight. What I paint is a kind of collage of all these, signs of signs, the evocation of quotations, and I don't know whether it resembles more to the spectacle, a photo, or my inner image of the world that is not independent of real images, but based on strict rules.
