Gyula Sági

“Energy, repetition, order, and disorder are the main principles of the Universe. So I chose them to be the basis of my working methods. My works are sensitive gesture “paintings” and, due to their repetitive technique, meditative tools for me.”

Gyula Sági (b.1987) 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 since 2014 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', started 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. While the body of works 'Chromatic Aberration' is referring to the optical phenomenon when the light breaks up on the edge of a lens to the colors of the rainbow. 'Organic Abstract', a series created in 2010, contains works that look like microscopic images. How the image is taking shape on the paper, signal by signal and layer by layer, is a very similar process to what happens in the genetic codes.

“Conceptuality is just as much as important to me as the aesthetic result: what interests me is the physical dimension of time and the visual representation of the change of time based on a given algorithm."
