Silaghi is an emerging contemporary painter whose monumental canvases represent a bold fusion of realism and abstraction. Often using black and white photographs of abandoned Cold War machinery as starting points, the artist launches into forcefully executed paintings populated by conveyor belts, vehicles, ductwork, and other industrial debris. Carefully painted shadows and highlights imply that these relics exist in pictorial space, while sweeping brushwork and rugged surface textures shift attention to his dynamic process. Organized by the KMA.
