Csutak Magda

Free-lance artist Magda Csutak was born in Transylvania (Romania) in 1945. Her main focus of interest is the question of the relationship between picture – image. She sees the material as deterministic in cognitive processes as well as in unforeseeable developments on the communications level. The materials used by her to construct her pictures simultaneously represent her works´ essential theme. Through the agency of material she finds the perfect form in the ellipsis, in zero (so-called “nothingness”) and thus the constantly moving perceptible world boundary. She has been living in Vienna since 1977.
