About Andrei Varga

When I am creating I leave spontaneity to play the most important role! I don't have the entire image or concept in my mind, I just build it as I start painting. The media that I prefer using in order to express my creativity is oil on canvas. It gives me the opportunity to play with the layers on surface and to create space. My latest works include a series of portraits that represent unsaved memory. It is about time and the way it leaves prints in our memory and also about the way that human memory plays with time. The memory decomposes the complete image transforming it into an incomplete puzzle and then it plays with into the imaginary field trying to recompose the image. It is about transposing the material into immaterial by creating a new identity and vice versa. I am fascinated by space and memory, either physical or imaginary, and by their virtual existence.
