Gyula Sági graduated in Painting at the West Hungarian University in 2010.
Sagi's motifs and techniques are pure energy. He creates
relying on his spiritual intuition. His
repetitive structures focus on the inner structuring order of the
all-embracing cosmos. After his studies, he practices bee-keeping and
directly observed the intelligent, self-ordering and repetitive
structures of nature.
He uses structure which can be found in nature and he abstracts these to
such a degree in which they could only be perceived at the level of
signs. The common characteristic of every living structure is the
repetitive nature of its visual signs such as DNA structures, hair,
branches, etc. Repetition is the same at both micro and macro level.
The artistic process is based on subconscious, dynamic and energetic
gestures of abstract expressionism, but in a repetitively controlled
way. He usually uses black ink and paper as a medium of his artworks and
concentrates on the pure structures of the things.
His works are inspired by the movements of German New Expressionism and
European Art Informel and also by Arte Povera, furthermore influenced by
Gerhard Richter, Arnulf Rainer, the fine factures of Pierre Soulages,
the lines of Wols, the black compositions of Franz Kline, Motherwell'
forms and shapes and the structures of Rebecca Horn, Richard Long, Mario
Merz, Jannis Kounellis, Giuseppe Penone and Chiharu Shiota.
