Art?

Why?

While he is using a variety of modern technologies, materials, and processes in each project his methodology is consistent. In a world that is constantly changing via incredible leaps in technology and unbelievable strains upon the environment, he is constantly questioning our connection to the land and our loss of connection to that land.

 

How?

Sándor believes that energy connects us within space and time to each other, to our planet and cosmos. Performance and ritual have always played an essential role in his work. He is finding peace and fulfillment in the creative process, especially when he is experimenting and combining different mediums.
