Botond Részegh, Weekday Angel, 2023 Exhibition Catalog, Yi Gallery
A book made on the occasion of Botond Részegh's 2023 exhibition at Yi Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. Essay by Robert C. Morgan.
"The outstanding focus in Részegh’s career is his ongoing evolution of hyper-intensive drawings and paintings. For the majority of his followers, these are the works that continue to provoke a feeling of existentialist reality. Recalling a statement from Søren Kierkegaard, the first nineteenth century existentialist, that 'dread is the qualification of the dreaming spirit,' Petranyi’s analysis of Részegh linked dread to a form of innocence. Here, he introduces the following question: '… what can be the reason why Részegh keeps forming a faceless humanoid shape, a lonely figure, who seems to inwardly revolve and float in a space from where there is, evidently, no escape?' Going one step further: Is it possible the artist’s reason may not exist in concrete terms? Perhaps, the 'faceless humanoid' is removed from the human condition as we know it today or comes from another planet, thus far unknown to us.
