Krystyna Cseh (née Brudek) January 6, 1950 – December 3, 2021 Artist, member of Ontario Society of Artists, teacher, environmentalist, traveler and free spirit.
Holding a plush blue bear, she sings a lullaby “I had known you,” her eyes say The white camellia in her dark hair like a silent spell, breathing. The glimmer of sunshine has flown toward her like a dragonfly landing on her skirt, she tries to pick it up on her way to the sky…
You will always be in our hearts mom, grandmother, sister and aunt.

My work takes inspiration from geometry. For me the square and the circle are starting points. And ending points. The square, defined by the horizontal and the vertical: it’s all you need. The circle: a snake biting its tail; the beginning and end; the still point. Geometric archetypes. But there is no perfect circle; there is no perfect square. The beauty of Pythagoras is within our minds. Rendered by the human hand, the square becomes imperfect, and becomes a part of the human world – where imperfection reigns. The rhythm of imperfection is beauty, where order and chaos dance, and sometimes balance. Indigo City is an assemblage of indigo-dyed Japanese paper, which has been cut, torn and assembled into a rhythmic grid.
