Visual artist. Studied at the Secondary Scool of Visual Arts (1957-1961), at the Printing Study School (1963-1964) and at the Teachers' Training College (1964-1968). He started to make abstract images during college years. He was occupied with the “miraculous structure” of the world’s view, connection of the whole and its parts, the transition between opposites. At the beginning of the seventies he created geometric, than more conceptualized works, started visual semantic-logic experiments.
Participated in important exhibitions of the unfolding neoavantgarde (Szürenon, R, Chapel Studio). He began working with photographs in 1974, starting a fifteen years long systematic investigation on vision: made “weaved images”, light-drawings, "mnemograms". At the eighties he experimented with composite images detecting the altering intensity of vision.At 31. October 1989 he had a supersensible experience. As a result he converted and stopped producing art for a while. After eighteen months he continued artistic work, with a newly developed method: following a predeterminated organizing principle (for example a repeated series of movements) he is not created the work, but rather let it come to being. Thus the work is defined by the organizing principle and the sensuality of its material appearance (for example the sculptures Drought flowers were created by filling the gaps of dried out soil). He received the Mihály Munkácsy Prize and the Klára Herczeg Prize in 2005. His retrospective exhibition is planned to be held in the Ludwig Museum Budapest in 2018.
