Csikász Gallery/ guided tour and discussion with Péter Somody at the exhibition "too slow to hurry". Péter Somody was born in Veszprém, currently lives and works in Pécs. His works were exhibited in Veszprém in 2006, also at the House of Arts Veszprém / Csikász Gallery.

In the early 2000s, Péter Somody created his painterly surfaces from several layers of resin spread in thin layers. These layers, coloured with pigments, formed sometimes translucent, sometimes completely covering bodies of colour; mostly amorphous, freely forming "scoop" shapes. From 2015 onwards the surfaces of colour and paint began to appear in striped fields, accompanied by pictorial elements of different densities and frequencies. The surface of the image has become a technicised reading and the imaging technology has changed. At the same time, however, the fundamental way of thinking about the image has not changed, which is always either to give the image a personal or an objective character and qualities without foregoing the tactile experience of the eye.

The latest paintings again make intensive use of cast, lacquer and resin surfaces, again relying more on a silent, slowly spreading mass of paint. The reflection of this layered painterliness, sometimes overwriting it, is the techno-painted "neighbourhood" painted over with sprays or stripes. The exhibition is on view until 3 July 2021, daily 10:00-18:00 , Sundays off.
