'The visible, the portrayed and the comprehensible itself is essenceless. Artworks beyond the world of form. Although we could assume that there is no greater commonplace I could say about an exhibition of abstract works. However, maybe what is displayed in these images is not very abstract; it very much concretely depicts what is beyond the form. Tünde Újszászi constructs and she breaks white through the black surface "fighting the material", and attacks large canvases with black in a gesture-like manner. She creates black surfaces with abstract expressionist painting energies, which are actually black spaces with different depths, in some cases allowing the appearance of a little whiteness. The canvases call the viewer closer and closer, and we almost feel sorry that the images have an edge and do not cover the entire exhibition space, in order to allow our entry into this emptiness. The images do not depict or represent, they stand as tools on this route beyond forms.' (Délia Vékony art historian, exhibition of Tünde Újszászi and Ákos Rajnai, 2016)
