In Ana Maria Szöllösi’s practice, linocuts often act as a substitute for preparatory sketches. Before rendering her ideas onto canvas, she makes such smaller works that depict an empty space, both transitional and nostalgic.

Tight evokes a claustrophobic space through a skilful handling of composition and color. The formal simplicity of the work results from the artist’s meticulous constraint and distillation of choice.
