Zsolt Bodoni

Budapesht, Hungary. Burn in 1975 (Ruminia).

Zsolt Bodoni's working process is based on an analysis of the past that functions as a kind of archaeology. He sources of information from documents, art history and music; his work both a means of understanding and a process of recovery. Bodoni's paintings are more like a performance, much as classical musicians re-visit musical scores. The starting point is the reworking of old masters. First Bodoni attempts to peer beneath the glaze of the "original", searching for the skeleton underneath, then, from his own reproduction, he invents new elements, - his role that of a virus that invades the unique masterpieces, this changing our reading of the past and redefining our understanding of originality.
