“I’m inspired to sacrifice anything necessary to investigate mechanisms of transformation – a vision of fulfillment in the pursuit of more light; new standards, a new internal dialog, and enough awareness to break free from addiction, guilt, fear and all that subconscious conditioning.”
-Emily Fischer Field
The April exhibition “illumination/fényáradat” is the work of Emily Fischer Field. Emily Fischer Field, an American artist based in Budapest, graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a Fine Arts degree in 2010. Her work has been exhibited in the US at Denise Bibro Fine Art, New York, NY, The Barnes Gallery in Leverett, MA and The Herter Gallery in Amherst, MA.
Puccs Contemporary Art launched its first exhibition in December 2014. The artist run exhibition space was created to serve as a forum for artists and curators to present more challenging non commercial works which are both visually and intellectually stimulating.
Located in a street level former shop on Víg u.22 in Budapest’s 8th District, Puccs aims to open a dialogue between the artist(s) and the public as all exhibitions are intended to be visually accessible 24 hours a day for the length of the show.
Outside of its exhibitions, Puccs also hopes to serve as a conduit for the exchange of ideas between Budapest based artists and visiting artists from around the world.
Puccs embraces diversity among its artists and is focused on universality of the artwork regardless of the gender, ethnicity, sanity, religion, or sexual orientation its creator(s).
