Share Article

The artwork «Red Line» was created during the 3nd Art Symposium (1993), the theme of which was «Art in Politics»

The creative practice of Hungarian artist Tamas Hencze (1938-2018) draws inspiration from the history of art and the experience of space and light. With a seductive sense of subtraction and symbol denuding, the artist creates works with strong visual intensity. The temporary installation of the “Red Line” (1993) is a unique example of integration of a two-dimensional piece into the natural environment, without the latter being used as a stage for the piece but rather becoming a vital part of it. Hencze manages the create a non-sculptural piece, while conserving its gestational integrity and identity. Its almost calligraphic quality intensifies its supernatural content, as it appears to move, dancing under the sunlight, radiating optimism, energy, speed, and rhythm.
