Illés Sarkantyu: Paraphrases

Illés Sarkantyu assumes different creative positions in the course of his work. He acts as a researcher, an art historian, an archaeologist, and a kind of detective, then he creates his own interpretations based on the information and experience he acquired about the artists and artworks. The reflections on the highlighted details (the edge of the paper, notes on an adhesive tape, the connection of different shapes, the changes in hue, or a gesture creating a special atmosphere) are hardly hinting at the sources of inspiration, the phases of the research, or the processes of learning about the artworks or the professional contrivances. Thus, the paraphrases of Illés Sarkantyu appear as associations, some kind of free translations of the original pieces, and this is how they become new references, new models, new sources.
