Brigitta Kocsis: Universal Gravitation

Brigitta Kocsis
Brigitta Kocsis: Universal Gravitation
October 6-December 7, 2015
McGill Library

Kocsis’ recent series of works is populated by mechanical elements, fractured and recombined human forms, and colourful abstract elements. Gesturing towards technology’s intersection with the physical, material world, her new compositions are open to interpretation and based in process, allowing the viewer to drift between ambiguous shapes and forms.  

Brigitta Kocsis was born in Sarospatak, Hungary, to a Hungarian father and a Romani mother. She attended Concordia University Fine Arts in Montreal and received her BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2005. She has shown extensively in Europe, and in the past year has mounted two solo exhibitions in Alberta, as well as solo exhibitions in Hungary and Finland with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. Brigitta Kocsis lives and works in Vancouver.
