This event has ended.

Priska C. Juschka Fine Art presents The Hidden and the Revered, Hungarian artist Attila Szucs' first solo show in the United States, with an exhibition of carefully painted canvases alluding to the assumed reality of the generally depicted by revealing its representation as a mere diversion for our cognitive system and collective intelligence.

Technically and conceptually, in Szucs' paintings, information filters through a smoke screen of delicately painted layers covering individuals, animals and objects with a soft blanket of white light, forcing the audience to adjust sensorially to the details of the narrative.

Szucs leads the viewer through an initially mundane, subsequently odd and alien territory into the depths of the collective unconscious, guiding the senses gently deeper into a world concealed from the human eye.

Using singled out sources from news and mass media, Szucs stages compositions void of overt explanations, causing a sense of memory loss, angst and alienation rather than the satisfaction of a shared collective memory of imagery.

By magnifying the presence of individual subjects and objects isolated from their historical or pictorial context and insulated by the absence of ad hoc references, Szucs charges through an uncharted visual repertoire, conscientiously laying the grounds for new framework formations.

Ultimately, Szucs' omissions on the canvas leave space for speculation and imagination, providing the viewer with a platform to reconstruct the reality of the depicted and the discourse of the hidden and the revered.
