PAINTING MEDIUM: PAINTING, ACRYL ON CANVASSIZE: 150 x 117 CMCREATED: 2019STATEMENT”I love the sea, the grass, the tree, the animals, the animate and inanimate world. Thematerial. Am I perhaps a narrow-minded materialist? No, the spirit is immaterial but thematerial is the worldly manifestation of the spirit. When I worked as a dental technician, I hadto cast metal and mould wax, plaster and porcelain. I was not captivated with this narrowrange of people. I studied Biology and drawing and also taught them, I was wanderingaround in the world, loved the colourful, transparent world of the Cuban seas, the whirlingmovement of the barracudas, the endless and timeless space of the Mongolian deserts, thechaotic and artistic magic of Indonesia, enjoyed skiing among the peaks of the Elbrusconsidered even by Reinhold Meissner one of the most amazing natural slopes. I savouredexploring Vanatau, Tonga, Tahiti and Bora Bora and the friendly people there, their songs,sorrows, faith, their endless respect for their beloved islands and enjoyed their unrestrictedappetite for beauty, erotica, exuberance and abundance. I was diving in seas and oceanswhere lemon, steel-blue and red fish were flashing and gleaming with intensive colours neverseen before in the tropical sunshine together with corals and plants. The impenetrable rainforests have presented all the variations of green. And the island of real peace: NewZealand. I love it. Although my homesickness drives me home to Hungary, being here I donot know where my real home is and I long to return there. I have travelled around the worldand know: it is small, blue and fragile! This is what I see from the height of 11.000 metres.But through my microscope I can sense the cavalcade of similar momentary magic as well. Iam an earthling like so many, seemingly animate and inanimate creatures of God aboundingwith colours and shapes. As time passes by I have experienced during my trips that all this isperishing. I do not want my children, my students, the explorers of the future not to be able tosee this magic. I am presenting some fragments from the endless world and giving them tothe spectators with love.”These are Igor Jeno Prokop’s words about himself, his philosophy and hisunderstanding of the world.CURRICULUM VITAE!
