INVITATION TO TIHANY

Art exhibition of István Orosz and Botond Polgár on the Tihany Peninsula of Lake Balaton. It is the largest and most beautiful lake in Central Europe, and one of the region's foremost tourist destinations. The show is at the Kogart Gallery near the famous Benedictine Abbey, which was founded in 1055 and rebuilt in baroque style in 1754. The still functioning abbey is a popular attraction due to its historical and artistic significance. It also has the best view of Lake Balaton. You can visit the exhibition of Botond and István in May and in June.

NUNNERY ...

A new graphic work and a strange post scriptum. Do you remember Hamlet's words to Ophelia: Get thee to a nunnery. Does it mean: Go to a convent? Specialists of Shakespeare's  language say that "nunnery" in  common Elizabethan slang was nothing else but "brothel," (as nun has been slang for a prostitute) and that therefore Hamlet's words are ironic and even more despairing than it seems.

NEW MAZES


I have finished these new anamorphic labyrinths some days ago. A round shaped and a square shaped. I started to draw them about a year ago. The pencil sketch was  documented in the portrait film made by Gabriella Medgyesi: Utisz útjai. What a long job.
