Gábor Roskó has already shown many faces to the audience of acb Gallery in the past decades on his solo exhibitions. His newest works – in contrast to his previous show in 2015 - signal a return to the artist’s trademark narrative, figurative painting.
The leitmotif of his newest cycle is a seemingly unreal, but still real being: the Olm. The pink branchia identifies the mysterious blind cave salamander, which grows outside of his head. Roskó puts even more emphasis in his paintings on the branchy organ, what becomes an antler, a universal allegory of sensitivity and vulnerability. The quasi-narrative bound together by the olms features also an arcehtype of a tyrrant, a crying nude of King David and the figure of Spinoza fleeing through the mountains in a dreamlike scene. Roskó sets a dark, gloomy tone for his paintings which are interlaced with fairy tale motifs.
