Stranger Than Fiction

There is nothing more fantastic than reality.

an exhibition of recent work by Bill & Cindy Buzádi

September 12 - 26, 2013

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 14th from 1-4 pm

Stranger than Fiction, is a collaboration between visual artists Cindy Buzádi and Bill Buzádi. The exhibition is comprised of a collection of paintings, sculptures, and a twelve minute animated film titled, Discovery. Within the film, is the story of an organ grinder who works in a factory. The organ grinder is trying to fit into society on his own terms. The realization of the hopelessness of his situation threatens his sanity and distorts his perception of reality. The work in the exhibit depicts this urban atmosphere of disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless world.

Cindy and Bill Buzádi met at Sheridan College and have been working together for over 20 years.

BILL BUZÁDI: ARTIST STATEMENT/BIO


billbuzadi.com


Bill Buzádi is a Toronto-based artist who works with a variety of traditional and unconventional materials. He is a graduate of Sheridan College, Classical and Computer Animation Programs. His work has been exhibited in Canada, the USA, Germany, Holland, Portugal and Hungary. He is a recipient of grants from the Canada Arts Council and the Ontario Arts Council. He is represented by Gallery Catalyst and Norman Felix Gallery, both located in Toronto.

Through his work, he attempts to describe the sense of disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world. The imagery depicts the struggle to give life meaning and living that life passionately and sincerely. The narrative portrays the reality and seriousness of human affairs described in a playful way. It's about overcoming obstacles and distractions like despair, angst, absurdity, alienation, boredom, pain, guilt and regret.

The overall compositional textures are products of continual reworking. Built up cumulative effects are created by dripping on, scraping off, tearing down, and repainting the surfaces again and again, capturing a passage of time rather than a moment.

Cindy Buzádi is a Toronto-based artist who works with a variety of traditional and unconventional materials. She has a bachelor degree in Visual Art from University of Toronto and a bachelor degree of education from York University. She is represented by Gallery Catalyst and Norman Felix Gallery, both located in Toronto.

The imagery deals with the struggle to give life meaning and living that life passionately and sincerely. It's about overcoming obstacles and distractions like despair, angst, absurdity, alienation, boredom, pain, guilt and regret, through perseverance and conviction. The method is about working things out and discovering basic truths in the process.

The overall compositional textures are products of continual reworking. Built up cumulative effects are created by dripping on, scraping off, tearing down, and repainting the surfaces again and again, capturing a passage of time rather than a moment. The resulting forms that emerge from the paintings vaguely suggest both landscapes and figures in an industrial/urban setting.
