annavarro (Kiss Anikó) 
The artist called “annavarro” (born as Aniko Kiss) displays as kinetic models those of her works, which were appeared before through other media, like paintings, photos, movies or graphics, and all of which she held independent.  Old works are in the new context reinvented as new ones.  The artist places in her works mobile components, triggering changes in the various forms of visualisation as the case arises.  Adjustments in the original forms are implemented through copying, re-drawing, insertion into the work of new layers, recording part of old works, or motion picture.  Visitors can catch a new glimpse of the oeuvre, while comparing with each other the various formats, in which the artist’s visions are manifested.
Jeremy Austin removes the nonessential, refining to an absolute, to achieve compositions with a detached relevance.  Works are executed achromatically and demarcated specifically in sections of nine, nineteen and ninety-five.  Numbers significant to the Bahá’i Faith (the idea that there are lucky and unlucky numbers is explicitly rejected by the Bahá’i writings).  Their significance originates from the traditional Abjad system of letter-number equivalence to express religious concepts.  The process also incorporates the use of prayer and meditation.  The work is therefore the result of a focused systemic spiritual approach.  "In my collages I utilize cut, torn, and abraded paper and rely on subdued painting and drawing techniques to construct non-objective works.  The drawings are white-on-white or heavily burnished graphite surfaces with inscribed delineations.
