Living abroad lets me think about the meaning of home. I have found the home is not just a place where I grew up, or where I went to school, the home means more about my family and the relationship with them as my main inspiration.
I strive to represent my own world with this inspirational personal background, and with my hobby long distance running. Running for hours keeps my mind completely relaxed and this provides me with new creativity. Despite the fact that I am physically exhausted during the run, the long hours clear my mind and lead me to think about new ideas.
In the last couple of years I focus on portraits and self-portraits and this change of my subject from my previous artwork helps me to show my ideas in a more expressive way. The people usually are alone in my paintings in a very simplified way. Sometimes in surrealistic surroundings, turning their back on us, or closing their eyes. These things reflect the everyday life struggles, uncertain feelings about our fear, doubt, loneliness, and try to get me an answer where my place is in this world as an artist is. . My work is based on photographs but not used for exact reproduction. I found using acrylic as a material is best suited for me, because of the ease of use, fast, impressive work.
Tamas Szikszay is an artist who works in a figurative field.
His style is fluent with semantic elements which are related to the age of late Impressionism, Cubism and Expressionism.
He delivered his subjective style with a clear, easy and instinctive approach to the audience.
The way Tamas layers out his brush stroke is smooth,expressive, sometimes anxious, but whith a composition that does’nt misplace accuracy and watchfulness.
Tamas canvases are managed in a way that shows his well-thought out technique.
His mixture of techniques are involving dynamic and natural scenes in a frenetic way.
His compositions are accomplished with noticeable balance and you can see his attention to the detail.
Tamas Szikszay absorbs the world and recreates it in an artistic way that seeks to capture his personal feelings and thoughts.
Tamas’s art is continuouslly in movement.
His art creations are captured in imaginative thoughts within his peculiar world.
The layout of colours,shapes and lines appear to be sometimes chaotic.
At the same time they are following their own path, like the natural flow of a river whith it’s own road throught the land.
These ‘roads’ are expressive -the red colour suggests passion and strong feelings, as blood vessel spirits and desires are conveyed in every corner of his world.
In most of his work you can perceive escalation of a surreal atmosphere.
