“My works are created by a previously established system of rules, generated chance and time. My set of rules, which limits the infinite possibilities of chance to a narrow framework, produces layers of time, thus making the artwork visible. That is why these works cannot really be regarded as my own exclusive creations, they are rather the result of curious phenomena that are independent of me, the collision of a geometric order and the unpredictable.” András Wolsky
