No one wants to steal flowers

Zita Dávid examines everyday absurdity through the connection of built environment and nature. Images, taken with meticulous observation-based painting techniques, put contrast to the natural spread of the wildlife and the geometric structure of urban elements. The artist’s carefully composed urban interiors show different aspects of human-control over the environment. Scenes that are considered ordinary, get a new layer of meaning through the artist’s concept. The dissonance, the upset of balance, the tension caused by the mismatch are broken by irony. The paintings’ subtly perceptible axonometric projection breaks the usual rhythm of image perception, thus increasing the absurdity of the compositions. In Zita Dávid’s detailed settings, both plants and urban objects unfold as symbols.
