Hungarian contemporary artist Júlia Végh is known for her powerful figurative paintings that take a confident twist on contemporary culture, society and everyday surroundings.
Her works depict the dynamism of remembrance and continuously re-interpret everyday situations. Emphasis is placed on coincidence, which composes seemingly distant elements into one given frame of space and time. Representing the reminiscent ego, images become dreamlike and personal. The dynamic memory selects freely, composing a new, bold, fictional narrative, in homage to the world of Surrealism. Beyond free association achieved through brush strokes, photomontage and collage, Végh’s continuous sources of inspiration is the selection process of matching motifs and materials, creating works that reflect Central European situations in a studiously personal and ironic manner.
Overall, Végh plays with abstract forms, the past and present, reality and the imaginary – vast subjects that resurface throughout her works, allowing for a subtle degree of dissonance, and for the chance to perceive an underlying vision.
Júlia lives and works in Budapest.
