Artist Statement

Istvan Szil/ crossingthetsdottingtheis Artistís Statement My work is based on the reconfiguration of materials and images . I alter objects and materials with the extreme sense of irony; choosing to address philosophical questions and cultural issues through employing succint humorous gestures. I constantly collect images from the internet , recognizing its search option as an unparaleled oportunity to gain access to wide variety of visual material. I alter the collected images by digital means to accommodate my comments relating to their source or context they were culled from. My sculptures enact visual stunts calling into question how objects are utilized within everyday life citing both the subtle marks that become embedded within objects and also also the effect that objects have within space. I am interested in the vocabulary of advertising and its ability to deliver the maximum of information in reductive , visual bites. Overall, my work shifts the use value of commonplace objects and images , through my subtle interventions. I invite the viewer to reflect upon these meticulously selected entities that are normally encountered within everyday life and by manipulating their functionality , I invest these objects and materials with a unique yet accessible sculptural presence. ...
