THE DRAWINGS

We can gain the farlhest-leading information about the quality of the sculptures of Ágnes Péter from her drawings.

On the large size sheets filled with charcoal-drawings dynamic ovals follow each other giving evidence of the hand's motoric gestures and some kindof eruptive, turbulent force.

On some drawings these movements seem to precipitate themselves, and balance each other: setting down they produce a lying X. In the next phase this X appears as the element of a sculpture or installation lying on the soil - the other parts of the installatiori are composed of pillars, sharpedged forms, circles, cones and other elementary forms. The work is like a monument or rather an altar where the individual motifs are either symbols waiting to be solved or they simply proclaim the triumph of sculptural power.
