KATALIN HETEY (1924 - 2010)
oil on canvas
81 x 65 cm
At the beginning of the 1960s, her painting was characterized by a further simplification of form, the intuitive use of colour as an element conveying experience, constituting the basis of form and creating spatial dynamics as well as the conscious reference to metaphorical contrasts of colour. Creating the works presented in her first French one-woman show at the Galerie Lambert in Paris (1962) - tempera and gouache works, collages, paintings - the artist's aim apparently was to understand nature as the essence of a complex phenomenon, where nature with its abundance of forms and colours, its diversity of materials, its entirety of spatial and visual phenomena connected to one another constituted the unity of the whole.
