Imre Vinczellér was born the 6th May, 1953 in Baja. Between 1976 and 1980 he attended the Hungarian Academy for Fine Arts, with Tibor Bráda, László Patay and Miklós Borsos as his teachers.
Vinczellér’s paintings are surrounded by a fine nostalgia. Pieces and images of memory appear out of the mysterious atmosphere. The visible and what can only be guessed, the print of a sporadic leaf, the silhouetted figures – everything is in a state of dream at the border of reality and imagination. Certain emotions, difficult to paint, and soul conditions are eternalized on the paintings.
The space, the background floats through the bodies. Over time, the figures loose their materiality, they become silhouettes. Their contours fade, the forms are hardly visible, their presence just noticeable. The times long passed are only represented through isolated figures or objects. What is left over for the posterity is a hat, a cane, an instrument. The garden becomes the symbol for the idyll. It expressed the proximity of nature and at the same time it is the place where people meet, where families come together. The paintings are composed of fragments and traces of a lost time, which wants to be reanimated. Imre Vinczellér’s aim is not only to show the signs of the past, but he wants the past to become a real experience again.
