Paris 1971. Gyor visits the exhibition of Francis Bacon at the Grand Palais. The shock of the confrontation etches echo’s in his memory. Years later, he was equally struck by the art project of Jason de Caires Taylor: bizarre, alien-like world, several dozen of metres under the sea level off the coast of Mexico.
These are mainly the sources from which Gyor draws his inspiration. He translated the power of Bacon’s fantasy to his own form of surrealism.
His interest in de Caires Taylor he expresses in the subjects, the colours and shapes of the underwater world.
A recurring theme in his work is the window, an imagination of his gaze to inside for his search for explanations in what fascinates him.
Another important theme is the woman, unreachable behind the window and inaccessible below the sea level.
Gyor can only perceive and express his vision of images that only exist outside the reality. He no longer tries to solve the riddle of his fascination.The contemplative relativistic blue that his recent work dominates, indicates a certain resignation. He can at best approximate touch; the unreachable remains unreachable.
