During the painting process I trust in my actual instincts. Working intuitively is a refuge, which not only shields from the external world but creates connection. I calm down, when the brush caresses the canvas, but when the paint splashes, the palette knife scratches, I break through the grip of the world with the lively expressive action of painting. On the canvas, sometimes thick oil paint is mixed with bone ash or marble dust curls so that is cracks like the dry earth, but some areas are left empty as if a storm had swept through the image.
Tibor Simon-Mazula draws upon his background in mathematics, filmmaking, and cinematography to create crepuscular scenes, often containing solitary figures within the structure of a room. Are they lonesome or simply singular bathers which occupy Tibor's canvases and emerge from twilight? The artist recently wrote, "my work describes a special intimate moment, when the figure is alone and able to emerge...;" into a nascent moment or from their physical "nadir," as the artist once suggested. No doubt they are metaphoric of moments of advent, dawning consciousness, the moment when something becomes evident to the mind and its subsequent bodily response. The artist's hazy strokes paradoxically veil and reveal the figures which enable them to transcend the particular to become universal and timeless. The large scale of Tibor's canvases make them impactful and help to establish a mood -- pensive, at times even giving the impression of melancholy or mystery, often enhanced by the sometime inclusion of abbreviated patches, creating deliberate ambiguity. His subjects seem to to suggest limens -- thresholds of their physiological or psychological response to the conditions with which Tibor Simon-Mizula has bestowed upon them. Like the Old English version of the word dawn, "dauen" suggests, Tibor's canvases seemingly capture that moment between darkness and growing light, in the rooms, minds, and bodies referenced in his paintings.
