NO FEAR – Photo exhibition by Hajnal Szolga

The current exhibition in the Full Moon Gallery shows a selection of different photo series by the artist Hajnal Szolga. The artworks are visual narratives that above all provoke contradictory thoughts and emotions in the viewer. The idyllic moment is overshadowed by threat, the noose tightens around the protagonists, a mystical veil shrouds the luminous landscape – The ambivalent aesthetic references trigger inner conflicts by simultaneously evoking the familiar and bringing the unconscious to the surface. The creator wants to portray the personal reference to negative experiences, such as fear. The causes of fears may be obvious, but the feelings about them and their effects are unpredictable and unknown. Beyond these themes, analogies are reflected in the technical execution. While the narrative concept and classical photo development are deliberate processes, experimental procedures are unrepeatable, accidental processes. Artistic techniques such as bleaching, photogrammetry, engraving, and masking enhance the dramatic experience and bring the surface to life: Light beings and spirits emerge!
