ART

I have been crazy about cars and motorcycles since I was a child. My sculptures are born from this obsession.The shapes vary from organic to streamlied in an attempt to interpret my experiences of velocity. The first step in making a bronze sculpture is the raw sketch followed by a scale model handmade in plaster,after which the mold is made for lost wax casting. The cast bronze is then burnished and polished to perfection. The size of my sculptures vary from app. 20cms to 150cms, and are made of bronze, stainless steel,aluminum, exotic woods, and granite.

"Mr.Gulyás, the art restorer and conservationist, lends his manual talent and sophistication to sculpting statuettes of cars and motorcycles that seem fascinatingly out of this world, yet perfectly follow the rules of aerodynamics. These streamlined creations mounted on bases of granite are allusions to modern design trends,as well as to the works of italian Futurists glorifyng dynamic movement and depicting it in its various phases. He uses various materials ranging from aluminum, bronze, chrome,wood,and granite to cuban green marble. Gold,silver and black appear as basic colors for the glistening pieces of art. The smooth and curvy surfaces create rhytms of positive and negative forms through masses and hollows. Symmetry is created by dynamicly shifting shell shapes,and flowing ribbed surfaces. In some pieces we may just find the rider,the human, in full control yet one with the machine. His latest work is mobile in fact, as the motorcycle is attached to a marble sphere by a pin thrust through its granite base. By pushing the sphere, there is the real life movement of turning a bend successfully emulated by the shiny golden machine."
