Nóra Teplán (b. 1990) is a Budapest based visual artist and artistic director. She holds a Bachelor degree (2015) in Sociology from the Eötvös Loránd University of Sciences, and a Master degree (2018) in Painting from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts. She is an active member of MŰTŐ from 2017, and the Studio of Young Artists’ Association from 2018. From 2020, she is the artistic director of the Budapest based Erika Deák Gallery.
Teplán mainly focuses on an image-based artistic practice but she also works in different mediums, combining installation, poetry and multimedia dimensions marked by abstraction and minimalism with the use of traditional and advanced techniques creating an array of intensities.
Her paintings symbolize (post-)painterly strategies and are inspired by perceivable reality and the state of inconsistency, indicating contemplation from diverse perspectives. A collection of visual traces appear on the canvases to make an invisible state of mind to be seen, where the fragments of natural elements refer to distraction. The manual imprints and the underlying expressiveness refer to the history of painting, and appear as contradictory signs on the canvas giving an impression of conceptual indications. With the use of different mediums, paintings, objects and texts, re-cognition and disintegration, reconstruction and obedience are in the focus of her works. The stations of transitions created by these experiences and the artworks realized by them are pieces of a flowchart, that are meant to condition the identity.
