“a permanent swap between reality and illusion”
We’re delighted to offer The Mayor Gallery publications, available to purchase online for the first time through GalleriesNow.
This publication catalogues the work of György Jovánovics. Jovánovics primarily uses the ‘poor’ and frail material of plaster to create, alike marble, smooth and lustrous reliefs. Cast from thin assemblages of geometrical pieces (e.g wood, laths, folded plastic) the white reliefs give the viewer, through the fine depth of the layers and the radiance of light, a permanent swap between reality and illusion. While seeking answers to the universal questions of vision and shaping space, he is also closely connected to Hungarian sculpture and traditions of visual architecture.
