Tribute to Kepes

Tribute to Kepes

Vera Molnar

Chance has always occupied a primordial place in Vera Molnar's art, leading her to continually experiment with combinations of forms, techniques and protocols. This tribute to Kepes, will not contradict it. György Kepes (1906-2001) is considered one of the first to have explored the possibilities of the photogram while collaborating with László Moholy-Nagi in Berlin in the 1920s. The cyanotypes Tribute to Kepes are jubilant ways for the artist to revisit, rework and reinterpret some of his earlier productions. Random tears, games with painter's frame keys, geometrical prints made with ordinary elements, etc. are all pretexts for infinite games, variations....
