blue, woman, woods, green, nude Melinda Matyas | Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening | Oil on Canvas | 31.5 H x 23.6 W x 0.8 in


This work is inspired by R. Frost's poem having the similar title. The human figure is a part of nature, the only place where one can really feel peace and silence. Snow is symbolising pureness and simplicity which cleanses the human body... and the human body is "us"...

The Lorelei is a rock on the eastern bank of the Rhine, Germany. Heinrich Heine in one of his most famous poems, ''Die Lorelei'' describes the eponymous female as a sort of siren who, sitting on the cliff above the Rhine and combing her hair, unwittingly distracted shipmen with her beauty and song, causing them to crash on the rocks.

The painting is a portrait of my 5 years old self. At that age I was stronger and wiser than now, that is why I used to keep in touch with this little fellow who knows the answers to all of my questions.
The figure in the painting is a connection between gravity (heaviness) and freedom (flying), the heavy legs and the freedom of imagination....

About Melinda Matyas

 

Melinda Matyas was born in 1976 in Transylvania currently living and working in London.  A painter of the hidden she creates  expressionistic  works using the human psyche as a reference.  For her the human body is a concretization  or a function of that unknown thing which produces the psyche as well as the body, which in her  vision is one and the same thing.

By applying the visual vocabulary and conventions of latent and hidden to subject matter drawn from the human body she makes her subjects forcing ambiguity and provocative perplexity to pervade her imagery.  Her figures often disturb tropes of figurative painting often blurring the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation.

 

“I love people, the broken, the hidden, the transparent, I’m excited about existence which is the greatest challenge on earth,  psyche is part of nature and it’s enigma is limitless.”
