Figure Sense brings together two artists who portray a correlation between the human form and psyche. Depicting various physical and mental states of the human persona, printmaker Harold Lohner and sculptor Gyula Varosy merge the many forms, shapes, and faces that contribute to the construction of every individual and the human experience.

That's Incredible by Harold Lohner

Harold Lohner’s monoprints represent the psychology and spirituality of men. He begins by collecting hundreds of found images, sorting them with an eye for significant, recurring gestures and poses. These appear in his work as drawings and silhouettes, merging figures and faces to create large, energetic images layered with pattern and color. Lohner does not make editions of his prints, preferring to work through variations on a theme in series, in artist’s books, or in multiple-print installations.

Harold Lohner is an artist, retired professor, and font designer. He holds an MFA in printmaking from the University at Albany and recently retired as a long-time Professor of Art at The Sage Colleges. He has been making and exhibiting his prints and other artworks regionally and nationally for over thirty years. Lohner has been an artist in residence at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, New York, Kala in Berkeley, California, and the Contemporary Artists Center in North Adams, Massachusetts. He is also the proprietor of Harold’s Fonts, a digital type foundry. He lives in Albany, New York.

Fragments by Gyula Varosy

Working on each individual sculpture as if it were part of a larger whole, Gyula Varosy’s sculptures are all connected and reflect one another. The figure is a central and ever present reference in each piece where it can take on many forms and shapes, from the obvious to a most fleeting resonance, gesture, affinity, or association of forms and relationships. They embody hardship, suffering, loss, perseverance, and triumph.

Gyula Varosy was born in Hungary and came to the United States as a refugee in 1957. After receiving degrees in Architecture from Pratt Institute and Harvard University, he lived and worked in New York City, with a concentration in housing design. He moved to Greenwich, New York in 1990, when sculpture finally became his main focus. He has exhibited at various galleries in the northeast, including the Southern Vermont Arts Center, New York University, and the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts.
