Mate Orr

Máté Orr’s works build upon an old-master tradition and are born from the juxtaposition of unexpected components and an interchange of the particular and the ideal. While some elements are painted with photorealistic precision, they alternate with sharply contoured silhouettes. His technique straddles the classical and the baroque, those two great tendencies in Western art: the drive to capture unique identity of object and urge to express a universalizing form.

Orr was born in 1985 in Veszprém, a town in the Hungarian countryside with a diversely rich cultural history, to a family of artists. His work has been shown in many group and solo shows throughout Hungary and at Art Fairs in Beijing, Monaco and Budapest, attracting a loyal Hungarian following as well as an international group of collectors as far afield as Finland, India, the United States of America and the United Kingdom.

Françoise Gilot

The highlight of the Várfok Gallery’s stand will be a special selection of works celebrating  the 100th birthday of Françoise Gilot.

Françoise Gilot's painterly career, spanning 80 years, is a story of triumph, her oeuvre gradually taking its rightful place over the last decades. She has fought many battles to shed the title of "Picasso's muse" and to be recognised by the profession as a first-rate artist in her own right. Her art traces its roots back to the revolutionary heyday of the twentieth century where she was in direct contact with such notable personalities of the time as Braque, Matisse, Paul Éluard, André Breton, Aragon, Cocteau and Robert Capa.

Since 2000, the Várfok Gallery has staged several solo exhibitions of Gilot's unparalleled œuvre and it is proud to be the only European gallery to maintain a personal relationship with the artist and to show the largest collection of her work available in Europe.

Her works are in numerous worldwide museums and galleries including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (USA) and the Centre Pompidou in Paris (F). Additionally, her work can be found to enrich a significant number of prestigious private collections.

Kata Gaál

Kata Gaál graduated in 2017 in Graphic Arts from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts. Kata Gaál has always had an autonomous and experimental approach and, despite her young age, she creates a characteristic visual world in her works.

Her highly individual collage and montage techniques require special materials such as wax, wood or pieces of fabric built into the artworks creating interesting and relief-like surfaces on the wooden panels.Her paintings usually reflect on her own experiences, so in her works we can see the actual universal questions in which she is interested.

Currently, important topics presented in her works are stereotypical social and gender norms and how these norms are changing with time. Specifically, questions relating to the role of women, relationships, clothing, dominance, or the question of having a child are explored.

Anna Nemes

Anna Nemes graduated in 2014 at the Painting Department of the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, but despite her young age she has had a number of individual and several group exhibitions.

In the main focus of her artistic interest stands the human body and the Human itself. While on her earlier paintings disabled people, body builders, her relatives, or animals were presented, on her recent paintings her closest friends and family, or even her body appears. Anna Nemes’ works are defined by the special and unique way of using acrylic: in her monumental, large scale canvases, floating figures appear in front of the empty, pure white background. On the artworks created with great technical skills and precision, the figurative compositions are formed by the different patches and flows of acrylic and their correlations.

Her latest works are characterized with the determinative usage of colour black and more grotesque motivic choice.
