Back in May, Pam introduced me to the comprehensive works of Balint Tzsako - Mad King of Collaged Draperies.

While I could never quite warm up to his drawings and sculptural works, I immediately fell in love with his subtle collages which reminded me of the humorous works of Ruth Claxton and the enigmatic hidden portraits of Eva Eun-Sil Han - two female artists I deeply admire.

Opening tonight, The Needle, The Paintbrush and The Knife will feature textile and painted works created by Balint's mother (Anna Torma) & his father (Istvan Zsako) alongside his own collages. I wish curators would pick up the idea of family exhibitions more often.
