Mózes Incze’s craftmanship is a curiosity: bodies, the lights and the atmosphere in his pictures could remind us to great baroque masters.
But his pictures show another kind of nature, another kind of creation. Autocreation, maybe. One can't be absolutely sure of the spatial dimensions in his paintings. Looking at them we see undefinable substances spreading or floating in those internal spaces of the pictures or just simply making the canvas look like as if it was corroding on the surface. These spaces are “under creation”.
This versatility makes the viewer feel like he/she is a part of the painting process itself. Incze’s figures have a general characteristic on the depictions: although they seem to be strongly occupied by their work, they are somehow stagnant. There is a perpetually altering space and there are figures busy with their work – but there is no narrative here, only a heavy contrast of an irreal, now-coming-to-life interior and a still life – composed of either a person or an object, and maybe some electronic devices .
Landscape vs. Virtual space
The classic type of scenery in pictures is the “landscape”. In these paintings the landscape is closed into little bowls, or confined by stripes, which is encapsulated once again in a second space. Those electronic instruments (flash drives or screens) add another meaning to this obscure space, and the substance within. They suggest that it might be a virtual space or visualised data stream or an undefinable place in the back of person’s mind. It is up to us how we read the lines.
Sculpting human figures reveals not only their true form but also expresses the emotions of the artist.The subtle harmony of fantasy and reason indicates both the maturity and creativity of the artist. According to Henri Matisse, we prefer rationality over the emotions to create the perfect equilibrium.
During the creative process the aim of the artist is to present the essence of his values in a manner both simple and full of integrity. Boldi’s art does not approach the human form from a psychological perspective but rather with respect and caring for all the creatures of nature. It expresses his spirit encouraging the desire to touch its finely crafted and chiselled planes and to appreciate how the light plays on each surface. His sculptures show sensitivity to the world around him and how he can express his dreams and vision. As Friedrich Hölderlin put it: ”Oh man is God when he dreams and a beggar when he thinks”. After Boldi asked me to write some thoughts, I closed my eyes to remember his sculptures. It was like analysing a film, very slowly and carefully, where the successive frames all tell a single story: the artist’s inner dream.
