István Jarmeczky’s paintings aim to project visual thoughts about sense and emotion on different levels of abstraction; thoughts about life which are condensed into a particular moment. He wants to evoke a transcendent feeling by using the visual elements of our wider surroundings: earth, water, air, and fire. By doing this the perceived space and the inner space of our mind can find themselves in a new but nevertheless familiar relationship. He is concerned about creative methods in his pictures reminding us of the rhythm of nature, visual analogies and moments of permanent change which organise elements into structures. He is interested in the visual appearance of the inner structures of details and their universal validity. He believes the abstract is the entirety of the world within us, our personal world.
