Veres Szabolcs bedient sich Methoden der klassischen Malerei, die er während des malerischen Prozess aufbricht und dem Bild ganz intuitiv eine verstörende meist überladende Bedeutung gibt, das sich auch in dem Format der Bilder widerspiegelt.

Eine gewisse mystische-existenzielle Tiefe legt sich über seine Malerei, die sich dennoch nicht scheut ein extrem breites und vielschichtiges Farbrepertoire einzubeziehen.

Veres Szabolcs employs methods of classical painting, which he breaks up during the painting process, intuitively giving the picture a disturbing and supercharged meaning that is also reflected in the format of the works.

A certain mystical-existential depth and darkness lies in his painting that nevertheless embraces a vast and complex color repertoire.
