Artist Portfolio Magazine – 2017 Q4 Art Competition
Szekely Szilard – Baia Mare – Romania
My personal artistic challenge is to explore the creative nature of still life. It is a valuable method to represent and reflect on the notion of time and space; as it contrasts with current scientific thinking, the generators of new ideas and technologies; but which can not diminish the extra dimensions given to those objects which are brought to life through our sensory and cognitive experiences, when observing still life. These simple compositions of everyday objects; represent the conceptual nature of the passing of time. Through our human nature we are forever trying to stop time – to make it eternal; therefore only through art that we can, for the time being, bring this wish to life. Perhaps technology; electronics; virtual reality environments will become vulnerable in the future; therefore everything that is stored on memory cards may get erased one day; but art is a repository of active memory through museums; where art remains current.
