< Attila Mata




I enjoy experimenting with forms and all kinds of materials. I am interested in ancient themes e.g. sex(uality), death, gods etc. In my artwork the human body is reduced to geometric forms and reorganized as geometric structures. I am also attracted to the extreme. If my theme is a god, it must be e.g. Golem with his brutal energy. I find some modern themes exciting, too: outer and inner surface of the form, how to use color – paint – on sculpture, design, the structure of the material and its effect on form, combining two kinds of materials on the same artwork. During my career I have used a lot of materials: wood, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, acrystal, in their natural and painted versions.

Without Viewers sculptures do not exist! I create sculptures because it is the Viewer who really matters to me. My goal is to catch his/her attention and to inspire thought. I would like to invite him/her to take part in the creation of the artwork using his/her imagination.
