Igor Eugen Prokop Paints Radiant Images in Portal to Enigma at Agora Gallery

| July 18, 2010 | 0 Comments

Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature Hungarian artist, Igor Eugen Prokop, in Portal to Enigma. The exhibition is scheduled to run from July 23, 2010 through August 13, 2010 (opening reception: Thursday, August 05, 2010).

Igor Eugen Prokop creates sumptuously colored images created with an unusual pairing of mixed media and acrylic on glass or canvas. These are incredibly energetic works, grasping our awareness and plunging us into a spectacular, glittering cosmos. The flesh and bone of each image is color and line, but applied by the artist in a nearly psychedelic arrangement in high fidelity. Radiant variations of canary and crimson attract our eye and spin us into cool, mysterious areas dominated by violet and cerulean, the integrity of each hue maintained by a crisp outline. Cryptic titles lend a clue to the meaning behind each work, yet Prokop desires that we experience his work on an individual basis. “I am presenting some fragments from the endless world and giving them to the spectators with love.”

Travel has been indispensable for Prokop’s inspiration. From the crystalline Caribbean waters to the legendary Polynesian seas, he has sought out the ephemeral, spiritual qualities that exist within our material world. Prokop lives in Visegrád, Hungary.

In a language as timeless as expression itself, the artists collected in Portal to Enigma speak to our innermost spirits. In a voice, sometimes raw and caustic while other times refined, we find fascinating forms and verdant colors rich with symbolism and beauty. Instinctive by design, these powerful yet meditative tableaus arise from deep within each artist, allowing for personal interpretations from each viewer.

Featured Artists:
Meral Akyuz, Bonaventura Anson, Hamza Bounoua, Virgi Dall’Aglio, Jeff Jackson, Tyice Natasha, Igor Eugen Prokop, Amitabh SenGupta
