Dora Foldes is a Hungarian artist based in Berlin. Her most recent work turns a naturalistic lens beyond the female body - main object of her previous work - in search of a more universal subject matter.
Taking an observant's point of view, the artist depicts our world from a star's eye perspective and sheds light on some of its overlooked corners of happiness. The series In this land, leaves sifted sunlight on their cheeks invites the viewers to explore the present moment in its entireness to discover places of hidden stillness covered by the turmoil of our world.
In both its source and simplicity of process, the new series of drawings and paintings reflects a fascination with art created outside of the boundaries of the established art world. Given the origins of her work, the term insider art is coined to interpret the artist's creations rooted in the exploration of the unity of the Self and the Other. In a constant quest of a safer place, Dora Foldes' work contemplates the elemental and simple beauty of life.
