Deenesh GHYCZY - Artist in residence, September, 2014

(...) In the work of Deenesh Ghyczy, the mirror becomes a distorting lens through which the subject is both crushed and multiplied. The birth of the post-modern subject occurs as follows:first there is the fragmentation of modern and rational, then, as a result of its break-up and its dispersion, it gives gives rise to today's society full of multiple identities linked within each of us . In this new awareness of the multiplicity of our identities and our roles, Ghyczy seems to suggest that the ‘univocal’ portrait, to which we have become so accustomed through the history of painting, has now become ‘impossible’. The new ‘I’ needs multiple points of view and angles in order to be seen and understood in its ‘totality’. 
Other series of paintings echo thematically and spiritually what Ghyczy’s work tries to make visible. The subject engages in a dialogue with himself, with his own aura. While its inwardness appears and resounds we, as external viewers, are gripped by a fear and a hope. There is more to the world than the visible, the power of this painting is to show us this truth, going beyond the actual perception to reach deeper dimensions.
