About The Artwork

The painting "I'm going to be a pilot" is based on a portrait of the artist when she was 5. The monochrome clothing and the heavy boots are representing the human condition, the condition which is preparing ones wings to fly. The colour tones in the painting are reduced mainly to blues and greys so they create an atmosphere which recall old times, and they present the little girl as if she looks back at us from an old photo. Melinda's work is closely related to her own childhood, not because she wanted to be a pilot but because she wanted to break out of the place she was living as a child. Spending her childhood in a communist country has marked her in many ways, and this is one of the paintings that shows that in a remarkable way.

-Melinda is based in London. Her work focuses on philosophical and empirical questions emerging out of human experience, both individual and collective. Her main focus is the human condition and one's internal world one experiences amidst the expectations of society. She is interested in the present and the past, her paintings explore different points of view on existence. -Experimenting with colour is important in her creative process, as well as partially deconstructing the forms which allows her to find an equilibrium between figuration and abstraction. -Melinda was born as an ethnic Hungarian in Transylvania (Romania) in 1976 under the communist regime, and as a teenager she witnessed the sudden uprising of the people, which eventually ended it. She found the transition between the silent acceptance into the outburst of desire for freedom fascinating. Later this brought up Melinda’s interest in Psychology. -In 2009 she graduated from the University of Art and Design, Cluj receiving her BA in Fine Art, Painting. -In 2013 she moved to England.
