The recent exhibition of Bódis Barnabás at Serpenyős Vendéglő provides the unique opportunity to see Bódis’s often raw and expressive work in a much more formal and controlled environment. The violent gestures offer a perfect counterbalance to the clean lines of the restaurant’s elegant interior. Bódis’s portraits populate the dining area giving it a jovial and and somewhat frenetic energy that one would expect from a bustling restaurant.
As Bódis’s portraits often contain a few strong and deliberate lines, I will try to offer the verbal equivalent.
Cervante’s Don Quixote was a romantic with a fantastic vision of the world. He believed he had a special purpose in life. While there were many who could not comprehend this vision and thought that Quixote was a bit crazy, it is certain that he was able to see the ordinary and make it spectacular.
