  • Agnes Toth Information

  • Agnes Toth

    Agnes Toth's paintings are refined, weightless juxtapositions, an assemblage of elegantly composed fragments, layers and details; all emerging from the artist's aspiration for aesthetics.The distinctness of Agnes Toth's paintings is the finest quality and the unique compositional method where she reveals highly detailed fragments appearing from the plain surface of the canvas. She uses emptiness and incompleteness as an integral part of the composition. Her attention to detail and the organically shaping forms directed her interest towards the idea of 'slow'. Her paintings create an atmosphere of timelessness and tranquillity, her aim is to slow down the viewer, and direct their attention towards an inner silence without traces of association to anything profane.
