Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Mama, I'm coming home, oil on canvas, is inspired by the longing for home, which is a recurrant idea in Melinda's work. There is a circular phenomenon as we come back to the place we left before. Melinda says: "The idea of homecoming is represented beautifully in the book of Paulo Coelho titled "The alchemist" where the hero leaves home for seeking the treasure and after many years of adversity and hardship he finds it at the very place he left. The feeling of insecurity while being away from home and at the same time the hope of returning back is the subject matter in the painting.

Artist Profile

Born: 1976

Hometown: Huedin

Based in: London

Melinda Matyas is a London based artist. She was born as an ethnic Hungarian in Romania in 1976 and later she moved to England. In 2009 she graduated from the University of Art and Design, Cluj-Napoca receiving her BA in Fine Art, Painting. Her interest in psychology and her research for understanding the source that adds meaning to ones life is one of the major influences in her work. Her main focus is the human condition, the internal world one experiences amidst the expectations of society.

In her creative process colour and texture are equally important, as well as the deconstruction of forms which allows her to find an equilibrium between figuration and abstraction.
