The artist uses these tools to direct the viewer’s gaze: at times focusing it on certain spaces, at other times diffusing it over the entire image surface. Zsombor Barakonyi, with a curious, experimenting attitude, reinterprets some of his earlier artworks every couple of years, erasing or accentuating different details. By making his selections of important and inconsequential components, he increases the intensity of his preferred version of reality. While the same perspectival dynamics operate in these variations, their effects are always different. Their creation hinges on rediscovering the world of perception – on transforming into a visual experience the layers of a world that has been divided into dualities but is nevertheless seen as a whole.
