As a sculptor Gyuri Hollósy has been endlessly captivated with exploring and developing new approaches to the classical human figure, specifically the female form. Hollósy’s love and fascination with Medieval armor has subconsciously influenced him over the years. This influence has led Hollósy to discover a new sculptural approach that has emerged and evolved into what he describes as a “strongly delicate, unique and personal style.” Although hollow and suggestive of a shell structure, Hollósy’s figures still retain strength in form and gesture. Thin overlapping pieces of cast metal are reminiscent of armor plates and allow the viewer to experience the juxtaposition of the interior and exterior spaces. Hollósy’s unique technique merges the traditional figure with historical references to Medieval armor resulting in an elegantly abstracted yet recognizable figure. He notes that with 'Kathy B', the unique positioning of the torso allowed him “to portray a wide spectrum of human emotion through a dancer’s gestures, lines and position.” The artist also states, “The female figure is important, as it is through this muse that I find the grace and fluidity of the form.”
