Agnes Eperjesy is a visual artist working in photography, mixed media and collage.
She grew up in Gyor, Hungary where she studied fine art as well as economics before moving to the UK, Italy and recently Sweden. She completed a photojournalism diploma followed by a masters degree in Organisation development based on Gestalt psychology which informs and underpins most of her recent works. Her eclectic work experience and exposure to a wide variety of studies and professional practices provided/-ing her with a fertile ground for her art.
She is using subversion of imagery to shift meanings, create different narratives, new visual languages and to look at familiar scenes from different angles. She tends to approach her work through a humanist lens examining the human experience, our vulnerabilities, idiosyncrasies and our quest for self-discovery. Her aim is not to shock but to inspire, enlighten and challenge dominant narratives. Agnes is working with traditional and experimental processes, investigating the essential concepts and boundaries of photography and it's potential to create space for connection and reflection.
Her work has been exhibited and published internationally and can be found in private collections.
