Mária Pecsics

The elements of nature are stories written one on top of the other, engraved memories.

The past and present of mankind can be read in nature, which exists independently. Time has been written into space, not only through the time of tectonic movements evoked by geological processes, but the time of history of the species populating the earth - primarily humans – are also written on the palette. Humans transform their environment over and again depending on how they narrow down their relationship with the world surrounding them. The picture of the reshaped surfaces shows the space that is the manifestation of this relationship. Experience and memory can be seen in the transforming of surfaces. Thus the landscape is the carrier of myths.

Landscape is the best known, the clearest, connection between man and the harmony we call nature. Yet it is still a difficult connection to grasp and to know. It is a subjective and an objective concept at the same time. And since for most of us it is easier to live it than to define it, it is a theme often used by artistic interpretations. A frequent subject of art is the answering of the ultimate question, the experimenting to understand the perfection of creation. This beauty and wholeness that nature created was ready before it was born and is there in everything that can be observed. But it can only be seen by humans when the interconnections are disentangled from the complex system of textures.
