Judit Szendrei stamp artist’s new exhibition titled MoCoMo will be opened on January 29, 2022 in the Stockwood Gallery, Luton under the auspices of Culture Trust Luton and with the support of Liszt Institute Hungarian Cultural Centre.
Those who know Judit’s art pieces are aware of the fact that she uses stamps to paint her pictures thus she creates new value by using already existing pieces of art to express her message. As she uses stamps her artistic work is tied not only to the fine art world but also to the world of stamps. The year of 2022 is a unique year in this world since three world exhibitions will be organized in the course of only four months. The Luton exhibition will be held parallel to the London 2022 World Stamp Exhibition. The second MoCoMo exhibition will be held together with the Budapest Hunfilex2022 in the end of March, beginning of April while the exhibition will be taken to Switzerland, to Lugano in May to be an accompanying event to the Helvetia 2022 exhibition.
What does acronym MoCoMo in fact mean? Mosaic, collage and montage are those well-known artistic techniques which are used by Judit in her work of painting by stamps. This interesting definition, painting by stamps was given by the widely known Hungarian art collector Peter Antal upon seeing Judit’s pictures on her very first exhibition in 2018 in Debrecen, Hungary.
The Luton exhibition presents 44 pictures arranged into five thematic groups. Who am I? asks the artist with her first three pictures followed by the question Where did I come from? together of course with the answers given by her pictures. The third group allows an insight into the supportive family life followed by a series of pictures illustrating her relationship with art, nature, travel and presents also how she looks at the world surrounding her.
