Art making for Marte Szirmay is about creating a language of signs and symbols that transcend regional, cultural and social limitations. The works are often conceptualised in terms of focusing devices for healing, meditation and contemplation. She works in a sequential manner ‘thinking through’, questioning and pushing the variable outcomes of ideas, and predominantly works in bronze.
Szirmay has a Bachelor of Fine Arts, has staged 38 solo exhibitions since, and completed many public and private commissions. She has participated in numerous national and international group exhibitions, and won a great number of awards. Her work is represented in private and public collections in New Zealand and internationally.
Szirmay was born in Hungary and lives in Auckland.
