The Studio city

In the first room we can see an art studio . This scene is a synthesis of different workshops and flats that I have used during my life. For example we can see here glass jars with dry pigments. I use to make oil colors from dry pigmenst when I studied in the University of fine arts. In these years I have painted them many times, regarding them as a metaphore of the painting. I thought that to paint a kind of alchemy, we can transform the dead matter of dry pigments, oils and resins to a sublimate object of oil painting; and this particular object can reflects our most inner experiences, meditations.
In the Studio city animation the artistic workplace connects with modern urban scenes, my natural, daily enviroments, because I use many times to a starting point to contemplation and meditation these places.
My initial point was Budapest with its buildings In a broader sense, I also reflected on ideal or utopian city plans and theories.
In these pictures we can see the reflective surface of a portal or a window glass. It reflects a clear image of same mountain from variate point of view. It is not a very common sight in the urban enviroment. I have to confess that these are just imaginary spaces, because I use the reflection phenomena as an artisic and philosophical model, or a kind of analogy. The mountain is a metaphore of the motionless nature of the True, (the metaphysical reality) and the mutative and reflective nature of the mind.
So I would emphasize with this title that our real workroom is our consciousness.
