Oláh Gyárfás


Gyárfás Oláh is a visual artist mainly working with organic materials, using old textiles to (re)create ghosts from the past or mythology. His background in fashion design serves as a starting point for his works ranging from sculpture to installations. Reflecting on the relationship between art and craft, he references folk traditions, classical art or Japanese culture. Whether it is textile, hay, wood or stone, the artist bestows careful attention to the history and the processes that each material undergoes, an aspect that constitutes an integral and important part of his sculptural practice. His archaic, hybrid sculptures open up a transitional space between different worlds, societies and eras.
