The oeuvre of Attila Kovács is characterised by accountability, in other words, by inspecting the articles around us in phases, and by building his simultaneously singular and complex world from constituents that can be interpreted both separately and collectively. In the mid 1960s Kovács established a new paradigm in fine arts: namely, the visual definition of qualified countable units. Kovács’ vision is deductive and expansive, using the logic of János Bolyai’s geometry as the great Renaissance masters like Piero della Francesca and Leon Battista Alberti did with the postulates of Euclid. His art was inspired by Bolyai’s thoughts, which emancipated mathematics from the description of nature, saying mathematics and the mathematics of visual space can also be autonomous.
