Artists >> Matyas Melinda

My artistic preoccupation is mostly based on  existential explorations of the human condition. Very much interested in the intensity of sensation experienced from the subject’s presence I’m looking  beyond the body discovering that beyond our well-lived triviality in each individual the spirit is made flesh. Though the starting point is always personal, emerging out of my obsessions and the emotional intensity which flows through myself and through  people living around me, this intensely personal content of the work invites a reciprocal identification on the part of the viewer.
