A lot of people want to achieve a state of total harmony and even more people are eager to stabilize this state. Is it possible and necessary to perpetuate the feeling of tranquility? The artist, Gábor Koncz sees the basis of development in the impact of extremist forces on each other, similarly to the constructive and destructive impacts creating the environment that can later be a basis for life and further development in nature. Expressionism, deconstructive and constructive techniques, the power of the extremes of analytical and synthesizing thinking all appear in Gábor's works.

In his works, Gábor strives to create systems by adding layers on the surface similar to layers of fabric.

He reduces memories and moods into colorful surfaces and shapes. He considers dynamic, busy compositions important, especially organic, amorphous and biomorphic forms, referring to and imitating the elements of nature and flora.

The narrow space surrounded by us also lives as a fabric or fabric-like structure in the creation “Living-space”, parallel universes, multiverses, "Bubble Universes", appear with their multi-dimensional surfaces and structures. Gabor examines the various textures meticulously and in detail, which he will later add to his new works.

The first of his paintings titled "Chaotic" gives the appearance of lack of deliberateness, yet the drawings, the longitudinal signal systems create a kind of close order and rhythmic vibration that stimulates the viewer as electromagnetic fields.

The painting "Threadbare End-Picture" depicts the cosmic spatial arrangement, visualizing the spectrum of core and particle radiation for the viewer.
