Edith Torony

What you will see here is a perpetual search in the way I choose to think differently and to create myself as a visual seeker. Simplicity is valuable to me. Ideas come from everywhere, but they grow best in solitude. I like to reconstruct the world, to isolate things from their context, parts and elements from my compositions, reducing everything to what is essential, so that the subject will look as if it had been there for a long time, very natural, just expecting to be seen like that. Awareness is important, also the way you think and observe the world. I like contradictions and I think freedom is not something we can achieve; it is what we choose to have from the start in creating unconventional distinctive works. - Edith Torony.
