Orsi Hor­váth

Orsi Hor­váth, born 1983.

Orsi Hor­váth was born in 1983 in Buda­pest, whe­re she stu­di­ed pain­ting at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Fine Arts, and later con­cei­ved her Mas­ters at the Aca­de­my of Fine Arts in Leip­zig. She exhi­bi­ted in Buda­pest, Stutt­gart, Ber­lin, Leip­zig, Tal­lin, and Dae­gu, South Korea. She recei­ved scho­l­ar­s­hips and art resi­den­ci­es from the Buda­pest Gal­le­ry to Stutt­gart to stay and work at the Art Foun­da­ti­on of Baden-Würt­tem­berg, to Ber­lin from the Hun­ga­ri­an Fine Arts Fund, and from the Cul­tu­ral Foun­da­ti­on of Dae­gu South Korea. Her newest pain­ting seri­es distan­ces its­elf from the ever­y­day life and takes inspi­ra­ti­on from sculp­tu­ral forms, ones that she inten­si­ve­ly expe­ri­men­ted with during her stu­dies in Leip­zig. In her work she chal­len­ges the clas­si­cal medi­um by a strong colour­ful­ness and the clo­seness to sculp­tu­re, with moti­ves that ori­gi­na­te from the ter­rain of sci­ence-fic­tion. She crea­tes land­s­capes with inten­se and often bit­ing colours, with a curious fasci­na­ti­on to depict the never seen. Her moti­ves stay figu­ra­ti­ve and nar­ra­ti­ve to con­vey a sto­ry in dif­fe­rent sce­n­a­ri­os from an extra­ter­restri­al and / or digi­tal per­spec­ti­ve which then remains open to the viewer.
