RITA GALAMBOS

Mélange of Milieu
February 14 - March 7, 2017
Reception: Thursday February 16, 2017 6-8 PM

Born in Hungary, Rita Galambos studied graphic design at the School of Art in Szombathely and the University of West Hungary, Sopron. Her paintings alternate between abstract and figurative, a necessity, she says, given the way “realistic art sets too many boundaries.” Though the approaches are different, Galambos’ body of work is nearly always bound by water, which she sees as a conduit for her own emotions. “I try to be very smooth and ethereal with my art,” Galambos says. “I also try to paint fast to ensure my current feelings are captured in the painting.”

This channeling of emotion can, at times, lead to a more textured approach that Galambos achieves with the use of thick brushes, painting knives, and plastic cards. These pieces diverge in feeling from the calm pastel waterfronts, sailboats, and trees that typically fill her work, yet there’s a sense that they reflect the same world from a different view. Human nature, she advises, can be seen “through different streams of color.” 


Rita Galambos lives and works in Feldkirch, Austria.
