Agnes von Uray

"In her works Agnes von Uray compresses emotional states, networks of relationships and existencial experiences of the post-Communist society. Her pictures get under the skin and convey the experience of emptiness, loneliness and uncertanity. Her figures are nighthawks lost in thought, focusing on themselves without being aware of themselves, searching for themselves and yet remaining alone. Forcefully, using her own style of painterly realism, the artist shows the lack of meaning in many of society's conventions and the strings pulling the puppets of the events culture that defines life in society today".
