The Hungarian painter’s New York debut features a series of bright, large-scale canvases depicting, in a washed-out, high-contrast neo-figurative style, scenes of domestic quiet, diasporic adjustment and political upheaval. Though not located in any one place, the images amount to a pessimistic account of the present, populated by newly arrived immigrants packed ten to a room, machine gun-brandishing cops, rock-hurling protestors and other indicators of global discontent.
