KRISZTINA ARLATH, HUNGARY
"My artwork is an animation series about Venetian courtesans from the Renaissance and Baroque
period. They were the lovers of many rich and famous men, and artists. I found
interested, that the name of the gallery is the same, than the famous Venetian theatre. I
had a little resource about their woman before. The people I have researched so far
have played a particularly important cultural role in their own community based on their
progressive thinking and multifaceted knowledge. The innovative effect of their
activities, although indirectly, can still be discovered today. For example, Veronica
Franco had the courage and talent to break out of the bondage of stylized emotions in
the field of poetry.
Tullia d'Aragona understood the knowledge of the cultivation of the body and wrote
Barbara Strozzi was an excellent Baroque composer, whose notes are still performed
by today’s soloists. Portrait paintings were made of the above-mentioned women in their
own age; the painters were Jacopo Tintoretto, Tiziano Vecellio, Alessandro Bonvicino,
Bernardo Strozzi, Paolo Veronese.
I used the digital version of the oil paintings, and I made painting animations.
I am a Budapest based artist, from Hungary. I graduated the Hungarian University of
Fine Arts, in Budapest 2014. I am sculptor, but I love to make animations also."

“Photography for me is not just a craft, it is a way of life. Wherever I go, I always take a camera with me. Sometimes I consciously prepare for a project, but sometimes the shot can find me quite by accident. The main thing is to be in the flow, in search, in desire and aspiration, to transmit the beautiful to the world, because there sure is enough pain and despair around us!
