Art School 21st Century


Reinventing painting as a critical tool, this work also cares about the look and feel, the syntax of visual language. Art is a serious businesses whose foibles make us chuckle, but then we remember that laughter is how people deal with the unbearable and the inscrutable. Derrida’s method of deconstruction was to look past the irony and ambiguity to the layer that genuinely threatens to collapse that system.

Miklos Legrady’s large cardboard paintings question our cultural beliefs, the conceptual filters through which both artists and the public see contemporary art. It’s about aesthetics and politics, criticism on a bed of witticism.  It’s about the hopes and dreams of artists, about navigating the belief system of vested interests, racism,  elitism, and privilege, it's about pointing out the myths,  the winners and losers,  the foolish and the wise.
