Sándor Barics in a nutshell?
Your artistic singularity: what are the major themes you pursue in your work?
Abstract Landscapes, Architecture, Space, Planetary surfaces and interesting structures / Compositions. i.e. I am painting the surface of Mars since 1997. My paintings are made to touch. When I am in the mood, I love to make video art pieces in my spare time.Since 1996 I exhibit regularly in international galleries and my artworks are in numerous privat and some selected public collections.

Your encounter with art?
I had studied classical music in my childhood and teen years. I was surrounded with great art books all my life and for the first time I saw Rubens, Vermeer and Rembrandt artworks I was hooked. My very first artwork, was a copy of Edward Munch´s “Scream”. However I moved away intentionally from figurative works and started to use the compositions of this great artworks in my non-figurative paintings. Compositions, color, depth and light but also a fascinating surface is important to me. I adore the color red and white…
Which techniques do you use?
Acrylic painting, assemblage . Kurt Schwitters used “MERZ” , found objects in his artworks…. I liked that technique too and I am using it. It makes my “abstract” works more connected to reality.
