In his exhibition entitled Parturiunt Montes, Csaba Kis Roka presents paintings that are in a direct line of continuation with his art, which is remarkably rich in spite of his young age. In comparison to his earlier works, a universalization of cultural references and a further nuancing of his already rich technical repertoire are evident in the exhibited material.
The title of the exhibition, which refers to an adage from Horatius Ars Poetica (Parturiunt montes, nascitur ridiculus mus, in English: The mountains are in labor; a ridiculous mouse will be born), can be brought into connection with the exhibition, as well Kis Rokas art and works, in a number of ways, but it can also be interpreted in a wider context. Which references are most prominent is for the viewers to decide. The exhibition features pieces of the artists new series, which she began in 2010 and completed recently.
