Szabolcs Veres

The paintings of Szabolcs Veres fall firmly within the auspices of traditional portraiture, however his treatment of paint and subject matter challenge the definition as such. He builds his compositions through a process of collage and, when coupled with loose brushwork and a vivid palette, so denies the aesthetic intention of a painting, instead capturing something more visceral in humanity as a whole. By exploiting the tropes of classical painting styles and subjects, the result is an unsettling evolution of concepts of beauty, a tension between idealized figures and a grotesque reality. Veres reveals in his paintings the duality between interior and exterior, reflecting back the darker truths that lie hidden beneath the surface.


Veres has had several international solo exhibitions in galleries and institutions including Spencer Brownstone Gallery, New York, Sala delle Grasce, Pietrasanta, Lucca, Italy, Martin Von Zomeren Gallery, Amsterdam, and Marian Ivan Gallery, Bucharest, among others.
