I just discovered the work of Hungarian artist Ágnes Paróczi and loved it so much I couldn't wait to post about it. She has so many great pieces it was hard to choose the ones I wanted to include! Her earlier paintings were mostly figurative, but during the mid 70's she began producing abstract works that featured layered geometric shapes. I have posted them in chronological order so you can see her style evolve over time. Enjoy!
