About The Artwork

Rising sun, kingdom of lead, oil on canvas, was done during the pandemic. The title of the painting describes the tension the figure on the painting is experiencing in his habitat (in his kingdom), it also shows hope for the future as the sun is about to rise. There is a tension though between human condition and hope. Human condition feels like lead, heavy and static but there is a moment when the rising sun gives energy to the figure to stand up.

-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.
