Hollosy, Gyuri

Host Aylin Green welcomes artist Gyuri Hollosy, whose career has entered its fifth decade. Born in Bavaria, Germany, his family relocated to the United States when he was 9, and he was only 12 years old when his passion for art was ignited at a summer camp. His parents, Simon Hollosy and Csontvary Tivadar Kosztka, were both Hungarian artists and completely supported his choice to be an artist. He has studied painting, drawing, and ceramics, but sculpture remains his favorite form of expression. He constantly explores and develops new approaches to the human figure, specifically the female figure. Also his fascination with medieval armor appears in works such as Kathy B, which is on permanent display at the Grounds for Sculpture; this sculpture's thin, overlapping cast metal pieces allows viewers to experience the juxtaposition of the interior and exterior of the human body. Five major commissions by Hollósy include: Aspirations for Liberty in Boston, Massachusetts; Our Heritage in New Orleans, Louisiana; The Family in Peoria, Arizona; Cardinal Mindszenty Memorial in Cleveland, Ohio; and the Hungarian War Memorial in North Olmstead, Ohio. He too sculpted a portrait of the late sculptor Isaac Witkin, who is also featured in this series. 2009 JSCA 30 min.
