DESCRIPTION OF ARTWORK
As an artist, Nyilasi was always fascinated by the transformation of humans when they appear on stage under the stage lights. For him, they acquired a monumentality which was almost sculptural, and their stance and gestures became symbolic of larger truths and concepts. Placing these figures in juxtaposition, watching them emerge from the wings and depart, he creates a stage experience for the viewers of this painting as if they were front-row audience members. The fluidity of this painting shows his mastery of free form ink application, wash, tonal shifts and anatomy.
