Historical Significance
Cosmic Matter brings forth Csuris ability invoke Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism within the realm of technology. As Maurizio Calvesi eloquently described the dynamics of this piece, Cosmic Matter is an explosion of coloured splinters, in a flow of orbitting molecules, in a slipping of planes that reverse, bend or scatter in the void, in a winding of chiaroscuro and distances that destroy the usual spatial orientation. "Pictorial" thicknesses and draftings, polished or viscous traces of matter, are really the result of a totally immaterial elaboration. Traditional pictures emulate reality and Csuri's methods emulates the picture in the most physical or granular varieties of its phenomenology. . . Art E. Dossier, Novembre 1990
