Unsaved memory , oil on canvas by Andrei Varga.
ANDREI VARGA WAS BORN IN TÂRGU-MUREȘ | ROMANIA IN 1984 AND HAS A MASTER DEGREE AND BACHELOR’S DEGREE IN ART AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ART AND DESIGN OF CLUJ- NAPOCA.
Andrei Varga latest works include a series of portraits that represent unsaved memory. It is about time and the way it leaves prints in our memory and also about the way that human memory plays with time. The memory decomposes the complete image transforming it into an incomplete puzzle and then it plays with into the imaginary field trying to recompose the image. It is about transposing the material into immaterial by creating a new identity and vice versa. The artist is fascinated by space and memory, either physical or imaginary, and by their virtual existence.
