Reka Barcza

Réka Barcza’s work is profoundly autobiographical: on the canvas she explores her emotional and psychological state, recalling personal memories as well as dreams. Inspired by folklore and myths, her metaphorical creatures tell new tales with feminist tones on the language of universal symbolism; they narrate the accounts of the invisible soul, which always connects to the visible, physical body. As a result, her current painting practice focuses on the exploration of the relationship between the invisible and the visible.

In her performative rituals, she examines gender-related issues such as power and equality and how the emotions, for instance, fear of death, anxiety, sorrow or love, leave imprints on the vulnerable human body.
