Gyula Sági

 

Gyula Sági is a young Hungarian artist who studied visual arts and graduated at the University of Western Hungary in 2010. He lives and works in Berlin and takes part in solo and group shows both in Hungary and abroad. Sági creates his large-scale paper works with ink, pencil and ball-pen and combines traditional graphical and painting techniques. His series, unifying geometric abstraction and gesture painting, are experiments with forms. He concentrates on the pure formations of things, finding inspiration in the technology, digital imaging and repetitive structural systems created by nature.

 

In his works in the early 2010s, Sági sought to synthetize visual languages of geometric and organic abstraction. In the series entitled Analog Noise and Parallel Line and began in 2016, the artist is interested in the imaging of the time and in the patterns produced by “failures” in the process of signs’ repetition. From the same year in the series of Geometric Structures recurring lines and geometric structures are interrupted by colored abstract patterns.
