Géza Szöllősi draws the material for his pictures from the internet. It is somewhat difficult to identify his technique, as it occupies a territory between photography and digital print. The chief quarry for the series Suzuka and friends is the internet catalogues for Japanese “real dolls,” those life-size, realistic mannequins with moveable limbs. He inserts these characters into his own and others’ family snapshots. The artificial emotion painted on the faces of these dolls, intended originally for sexual purposes, gains a different, “real” meaning in these new contexts.
