Almost every day I draw lines either on a piece of paper or by computer. With lines I express my thought or give instructions to people who can build a house by studying them. It is really important for these lines to be placed perfectly, to have the perfect length and to have a universal reading which means the same for everyone.
In my artistic work lines are not only present but also play an important role. Each of my pictures start with a line not with a patch. Then I don’t pay attention to their lengths. I am more free to draw lines. In these works of mine I look for different appearances of lines. Sometimes they are present in light, or in three dimensions, or they might be totally dim just as they are in busy crossroads.
Sometimes I just find pleasure in drawing lines. Here it is not confusing if we have different interpretations of the same set of lines.

István Pölös

architect (born in Hungary 1966)

"A letter of an idea is a line, a set of lines can add up to words and sentences. During drawing words and sentences might even be structured into an idea. Drawing is a therapy that can let us have no inhibitions to solve a problem."
