Ádám Koncsag studied sculpture at Western University of Temesvár. In his works the sculptural traditions and the origin of the history of sculpture meets a young and dynamic design world. The polished shape of the sculptures liberates the matter of wood and metal. The shape and pattern of the raw material drifts the shape, giving energy and direction to it without dominating it. Every piece of Ádám’s work achieves melting together matter and form, traditional and contemporary sculpture, which do not coexist in harmony, but as an abstract, energetic performance. The light that breaks through the cracks and gaps of the sculptures are simultaneously filling out and structuring the shape, which besides its symbolism, initiates a multitude of associations in the viewer: the flash of a face in the interior of the wood, the encounter of lovers in the rattle of shapes, or the clean-cut maritime life drawn in the veins of wood. Ádám’s works compound the joy of the spectacle of plain shape with with our desire for intuitive interpretation, all this with novelty, youthfulness and perfectly wholesome abstractions.
