"When I returned home (from Germany), Kiss Janós, a great hungarian artsist, became my master. He is the apprentice of Szőnyi István and Barcsay Jenő.
"My intention is to follow their tradition," Andras said.
"I believe that the reality we perceive through our senses and define in our everyday life is not the only one. The truth of the myths is deeper than that.
"In the ancient depictions, man appears not as weak creature at the mercy of the natural elements, of the changing seasons and of old-age and death, but as a silhouette which embodies the manly and the divine.
"During the act of creation the soul breaks free from it’s chains and flies to unknown worlds to bring back things which can be made visible with the help of some elements of the known world.
"I do not wish to simply copy the reality.
"My goal is to create like nature, which does not repeat itself. Nature tends to keep everything in balance which is always formed by the interaction of two opposite forces.
"On a still picture this tension is provided by the alignment of positive and negative forms, by emphatic and non-emphatic elements."
