    Alexandra Hegedus

     

    I have always been curious about the world, and wanted to see how it works on the whole. Fine art was the most dominant of many of my interests, so I did my studies at fine art schools; at first as a textile artist and later as a painter.
    During my studies at the University of Pécs, I gradually learned how to combine my different kind of interests in my art. While being a sophomore, I started to make technical and material experiments, and my professor encouraged me to continue them. His approval and other appreciations such as prizes and scholarships I won, motivated me to implement all of my ideas.
    I have been using industrial and domestic materials for four years applying different kinds of glues, varnishes, resins that I call non-traditional artistic materials. These materials can be mixed with paint or each other as well. Sometimes I combine them with natural stuffs like sand, shavings and bark. Despite my passionate attraction to technical implementations I mostly produce figurative works instead of abstract.

    My interests in psychology and material experiments are incorporated in "bodyscape paintings", I started to create two years ago. Based on Gestalt psychology, my paintings trick people's mind, and make them ask whether it is a landscape or a body. By embeding a human body in a landscape, I express my faith in the symbiotic relationship between humans and Nature. The experimental technique I use gives exciting and transparent surfaces to these paintings and makes them extremely statuesque.
