As someone who essentially grew up in the Hungarian countryside and now living in New York sets me an irresolvable conflict: my love of nature’s minimalism versus the sensorial delight of big city life. My works of art represent this constant struggle for balance, the attempt to find “flow,” those mindful moments that thread through life’s parade of shifting attitudes, perspectives and expressions, where all this extraneous noise becomes one, a whisper of fulfillment. To capture this my work provides a series of candid, close-up, intimate observations, a still life in the speeding lane.
I invite my viewers to experience “flow”, to realize the moment in which they live, in all its dimensions. Like a Buddhist mantra, a gospel song or a yoga class, my work offers a moment of silence, peace and mindfulness.
Hi. My name is Rita Bolla, and I was born in Budapest, Hungary. After receiving an MFA degree from the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, I travelled and exhibited in several major cities in Europe and America. I moved to the United Stated in 2009, the choice I cherish ever since. I lived in New York City, Los Angeles, the mountains of San Bernardino, California, and recently moved Upstate New York, to the Hudson Valley area. I am looking for peace, searching for the secret symmetry within Zen and Chaos. When I'm not painting or thinking about painting, I love spending time with my family in nature, cook good food and take or teach yoga.
