MOLNÁR LEVENTE

CREDO

Levente’s works open a window to a WORLD where we find ourselves communicating with our innermost selves left without reflection. His artistic drive summons the discourse of the self created by the transcendental powers of aesthetics way beyond figurative depicting.

Sculptor, creator and works are entities that cannot be cut off from each other. They are soul/sole together till the ideality goes out to start a new life through the spectator’s eyes. This figurality becomes the bridge between the creator and the acceptor. The artist: Pontifex making the figure alive by taking advantage of the materials and the composition of the elaborate pieces.

Art that is formed by free playfulness. Style that shows unbound shaping. Levente’s instinctive playfulness makes the hardly definable creator’s impulse exiled to the very depth of conscioussness complete and unfold. This way his art is getting mature, developing independently, reifying his artistic credo and life-loving.

His subject, on one hand, is human as the ultimate being. Yet, on the other, it is the one placed in social and cultural context. This fascinating mixture of reality and imagination is presented to us driving the attention to matters of existence through the artist’s rich association.
