Female Iconoclasts: Vera Molnár, Pioneer of Early Computer and Generative Art, Adam Hencz, δημοσίευση στο Artland Magazine [21/10/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Vera Molnár, a founder of early computer and generative art, radically helped establish the parameters for geometric abstraction, focusing on form, transformation, and movement. Her works follow a strict compositional approach regulated by a set of mathematical principles that foresaw the rise of computers, using line and color as the sole structural pillars of her work. She constructs a language out of controlled and programmed lines, inviting chance and randomness into the creation process.
Vera Molnár was a founding member of the Centre de Recherche d’Art Visuel and participated in the artistic discussions that sparked the emergence of kinetic art. She became one of the early pioneers of using computers in visual arts from 1968 onwards.
Short biography of Vera Molnár
Born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1924, Molnár started creating art when she was eight years old and carried on studying both Art History and Aesthetics at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts. Molnár, also known by her maiden name, Gaks Vera or GV, had already established a body of conventional work when she began creating the generative and computer art for which she became best known.
After spending a scholarship in Rome, she moved to Paris in 1947 with François Molnár, who would later become her husband. The two quickly became a part of the Hungarian artistic diaspora. They spent their evenings in the Montparnasse café Le Select, where she met Victor Vasarely, Fernand Léger, Kandinsky, Brancusi, and other famous contemporaries.
