Press release

Almine Rech is delighted to present an exhibition of works by Szabolcs Bozó on view from December 9, 2021 to January 15, 2022. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

Marvelous characters populate the canvases of Bozó’s paintings. A panoply of monsters and spirits alternately charm and unsettle their viewers as they gaze from limpid eyes or bare their sharpened teeth. From Krampus to a snail god, the origins of many of Bozó’s creatures derive from the rich, folkloric mythology and tradition of the artist’s native Hungary. The vivid imagery of these stories was reinforced for Bozó growing up in Hungary in the late nineties and early aughts, when animation studios proliferated and cartoons flourished in the country following the 1989 fall of Communism. These cartoons, and particularly those produced by the famed postwar studio Pannónia, indirectly inform Bozó’s aesthetic.
