In Culver City…

Anat Ebgi is pleased to announce Hungarian artist Gergö Szinyova’s first solo show of work in Los Angeles. Fri-July31-AnatEbgi-GergoSzinyova

BE AWARE that several other sites are listing this reception for Saturday. I personally spoke with Anat Ebgi and the celebration for the artist is taking place TONIGHT! Because of the confusion…the gallery may be staying open a little past 6 pm….but that is NOT confirmed.

Based in Budapest, Hungary, Szinyova’s paintings are composed of a distinct process of layer making that structures and defines each surface. Successive layers of acrylic paint are applied with airbrush, squeegee and palette knife, then let to dry in order to form a chronology of mark-making and blunt gesture that unfolds across each canvas. Earlier brushstrokes become concealed, while others remain obscured behind the filter of further layers. Szinyova’s elaboration of surface is not narrative, but rather refers to the process by which each mark is revealed and dissolves back into the composition of the medium.

On view: August 1 – August 22, 2015

Where: Anat Ebgi, 2660 La Cienega Blvd.
