The Monochrome Clack group is creative activities of two artists who build a unique connection between the painting and audiovisual electronic art. Their pieces of art are based on the finding that computer animation (movements, light) projected on oil/canvas/photo paintings (painting-installations) creates a new-type of medium from the static elements of the painting and constantly changing elements of digital animation.
Their pieces of art are based on the finding that computer animation (movements, light) projected on oil/canvas/photo paintings (painting-installations) – on meeting an active observer’s attitude – creates a new-type of medium from the static elements of the painting and constantly changing elements of digital animation. The paintings and the projected audioreactive visuals creates together the structure of the animations.
We expand the fusion of the painting and electronic audiovisual, as installation, with real time improvisation. We already have two live acts:
- Kaptár live act
- Oscillations live act
Éva KÖVES | The creative methods of Éva Köves are novel, and exceptional: she mounts her photos on canvas, takes them further in paint, and then goes on to create mostly large painting-installations from them, at times consisting of over a dozen pieces. Eva does not belong to any particular contemporary school or artistic group, but her themes, way of thinking, as well as urban com- mitment relates her to the geometrical, constructivist, anti-mainstream prog- ram in the first half of the twentieth century, especially, of the Bauhaus and Laszlo Moholy- Nagy. Since 1989, she has had some 30 individual exhibitions in Hungary and internationally, has taken part in numerous group shows, and has been a frequent participant at representative exhibitions that introduce con- temporary Hungarian art and avant-garde endeavours within that.
Andrea SZTOJÁNOVITS | Andrea Sztojánovits graduated at the Intermedia and Pedagogy Departments of the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest in 2009. Presently, she attends the Doctoral School of the Academy. For nearly fifteen years she has been engaged, with one of the frontier fields of digital picture creation: improvisational audio-visual performances, prevalently called VJ (video performer) on both theoretical and practical levels. From the point of view of Andrea’s artistic activities, transporting VJ-culture, its visions, as well as way of thinking, into the “traditional” field of fine arts by producing installations and performances, has a decisive importance.
