Traditionally, Csafordi’s encaustic landscape paintings have been a contemporary impressionist style with a mixture of abstract. In “exploring the colourful landscapes of the human heart”, Csafordi was inspired by the heart shape that is a familiar modern symbol in our daily lives and imagination.
American pop artist, Jim Dine who once described hearts as a “landscape” – Csafordi couldn’t agree more. American painter, sculptor and printmaker, Jasper Johns, works in abstract to create landscape were also an inspiration.
Through “Heartscapes”, Csafordi explores the use of lush brushstrokes, layers of encaustic paint and other materials. Through his energetically sketched lines and assemblage of colours, splatters and a variety of marks has created a collection of heart paintings that are simple, yet complex … and full of life.
“My work is intuitive expressive painting … and most importantly, spontaneous. It’s both the physicality of painting and the call to be an explorer within the work that drives me to create my art,” he said.
During these challenging times, Csafordi felt called to explore the landscape of the human heart, to convey a rollercoaster of emotions coursing through imaginary terrains. Through his latest collection, colour overcomes the dark, love overcomes fear, and the resulting Heartscapes inspire hope and connectivity. “We are all explorers,” he says, adding “… if we ask questions, listen and follow our heart.”
