Blackness Over the Lower Street
Oil on Linen
16 x 20

A little daemonic tango

of the quaint black beauty

is dragging me somewhere in.

No music.

No audience.

And what for that crimson lipstick?

I don´t scream loud enough.

Pale air dropping around.

It´s slowly dawning on me.

Malé démonické  tango

čudnej čiernej krásavice

ma kamsi vlečie.

Bez hudby.

Bez divákov.

Načo ten ohnivočervený rú??

Nevrieskam dosť nahlas.

Okolo padá biely vzduch.

Pomaly mi svitá.

Juror of Awards Comments:

Mood paintings can speak to the soul, in many cases, emphatically. This painting immediately moved me by its beauty and mood and emotional content.  It has that "Wow" factor! "Blackness Over the Lower Street" by Tibor Nagy won the top honors because the artist took the liberties to be inventive with realism.  Being so creative and exploring outside the box to me is the greatest thrill and journey in the painting experience.  Scraping paint and laying fresh patches over it, distorting shapes, having an enormous variety of edgework coupled with the exciting sophisticated use of the palette knife pushed this piece to the top.  The abstraction of reality makes this piece an icon of the highest execution.  It demands the viewer to keep looking and looking and looking and searching. Congratulations to Tibor who is someone people will be watching for a long time! - Charles Warren Mundy

Monthly Judge's Comments (July):  This absolutely gorgeous painting took my breath away! What a beauty! It’s an extremely captivating, moody and compelling piece which drew me in and would not let me go. Not that I wanted to go, I could gaze at this painting for hours! I cannot begin to talk about all the amazing qualities found within this remarkable painting. As an artist, Tibor displays the upmost confidence evident in his brush and palette knife work and employs a boldness that only an extremely gifted and experienced painter can pull off. The sumptuous paint application gives the word ‘painterly’ a whole new meaning! The delicious lost and found edges are handled exquisitely. This intriguing, poetic and ethereal painting is so infused with emotion, empathy and melancholia one cannot help but to be profoundly moved. It is clear that the artist painted this haunting imagery with intense sincerity, raw emotion and expressive energy. This extremely multi-layered painting reminds me of a ghostly entity. The cool, subdued and gorgeously diffused greys invoke a sense of isolation and loneliness. I love the way the building is subtly integrated with the foreground, as it rises from the earth into the misty air, giving it a poetic and otherworldly feel. The artist has truly developed his own voice that makes his paintings immediately recognizable and distinctive. A masterpiece indeed! - Jennifer McChristian
