About Dora Stork

 
 
  • Biography

    „I show the details instead of the whole, sort of inviting the viewer to embrace and understand their surroundings”

    Dora Stork was selected artist in the London Art Biennale in 2023, an award-winning Hungarian painter whose art has appeared in solo and group exhibitions in Hungary and Romania. Her work can also be found in many private collections in the United States, the United Kingdom,  the European Union, and Japan.

    Dora is an abstract realistic encaustic artist: abstract in the world of color, realistic in the world of form, and symbolist in meaning. As a politically minded painter, she is interested in public life as well as social and economic processes. She presents her particular vision in these works. The dreamlike compositions are her intuitive reflections on public issues. At the same time, seemingly astonishing, strange circumstances and inappropriate details on a rational sphere might evoke questions in the viewer.

    She mainly uses pure wax and pigments to make her paintings. Over the years, she has developed a medium that does not contain oil or any non-waxy additives. When she occasionally paints with acrylic, the characteristics of her figurative style transform into an imaginary interpretation of nature.

    Dora is an active, awarded member of her community and regularly takes part in their group exhibitions every year.
