About Eszter Kores
It was in 2000, in the art-school, where I first met the multiplying graphic techniques. My first prints showed my family. I simply took the family photos of events that were important for me and re-wroted them according to my view.
After graduation at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, I started a blue series of coloured cyanotypes first, because that technic was a way to go on with the multiple graphics. But these blueprints influenced me in such a way, that I started to paint on canvas. The theme was the same as on the blueprints: children faces, that was painted to be some animal or heroe in nursery school events. This repaint method reminded me of retouching, which is really current at our times, made with computer in every photo that shows up in magazines or advertisements. Even our home-made photos are handled with photoshop, to make it nicer and perfect.
After the blueprints I painted visionary pictures about the coming generation ( 24 century kid, Yellow playground, Phantasm ), and two pictures about a 21 century Adam and Eve.
From 2011, I started to write some thinklings on the canvas, and reduce the colours to cian, magenta, yellow and black, just as I did it in my degree work. As I graduated as a graphic artist, and at printing, these are the main colours.
