Emőke Lőrincz is a visual artist, currently living in Budapest. She works as an art director – and she also paints. The subject of her painting is to summon the nearby, visually documented past. She reconstructs others' memories by filtering them through her artistic vision.
Only the nonexistent can stay unharmed; the evanescence crawls even into the imaginary world, her paintings.
