Erzsebet NAGY SAAR

Vienna, Austria

Last updated: March 7, 2017

ABOUT ME | PORTFOLIO

As an artist, Erzsebet Nagy SAAR stands in a row of women whose themes are derived from their own personalities, their own experience, from self-observation and their own accentuated view of events. But her methods of self-inspection and self-reflection are, in a contemporary sense, traditional in nature.

BIOGRAPHY

Over the undersurface

The art of Erzsebet Nagy SAAR is the sentient layering. In her decollages layers with disparate motifs but common entities are assembled to a symbiosis. What was once considered a fractured foundation is finding sentient ease in its new form. In return the past serves as a stimulus for its estranged continuation and therefore enables the birth of a new motif. Among the layers interdependent threads are woven, which draw ultimately to a vulnerable core; where sensitivity reveals its actual, sore being. Yet it shall and must never perish, but on the contrary it must exhibit itself in a proud pose of sensitive assets. 


Erzsebet Nagy SAAR’s decollages are to be interpreted as an ode to sensitivity; to this deeply humane trait that is the last gleam to remain when nothing else seems to.

Nagy studied in Canada, at the Florida University, in Cambridge, Madrid and Vienna, where she lives and works today. She describes her own life as a decollage, which is marked by its self-determined assembling.



Die Kunst von Erzsebet Nagy SAAR ist die sensible Vielschichtung. In ihren Decollagen werden Schichten mit differenten Motiven aber verwandten Entitäten zu einer Symbiose zusammengepasst. Was einst als zerrüttetes Fundament galt, findet nun in seiner neuen Form empfindsame Ruhe. Im Gegenzug dient das Früher als Impuls für seine artfremde Fortsetzung und ermöglicht so überhaupt erst das neue Motiv. Zwischen den Schichten werden einander bedingende Fäden gesponnen, die schlussendlich zu einem verletzlichen Kern ziehen. Hier offenbart das Sensible sein tatsächliches, wundes Wesen. Doch niemals kann, soll und darf es daran zugrunde gehen, sondern im Gegenteil muss es sein empfindsames Vermögen als stolze Pose exhibieren.

Erzsebet Nagy SAARs Decollagen sind als Loblied auf die Empfindsamkeit zu interpretieren; auf diesen zutiefst menschlichen Zug, der das einzige ist, das bleibt, wenn sonst nichts zu bleiben scheint.

Nagy studierte in Kanada, an der Florida University, in Cambridge, Madrid und Wien, wo sie heute lebt und arbeitet. So beschreibt sie ihr eigenes Leben als eine Decollage, die vom selbstbestimmten Zusammenpassen, vom Zusammenfinden-Lassen, geprägt ist.
