Biography from Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery:
Gyuri Hollosy, talented sculptor and teacher, is now in his second year as associate professor of art at Bethany College 1987. Gyuri formerly was assistant professor of sculpture at Washington University. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ohio University, a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tulane University, and also studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland, Ohio.

Of Hungarian descent, Hollosy was born in Germany after his father fled Hungary. Since moving to the United States, he has served his new homeland for over five years in the U.S. Coast Guard and has become a noted sculptor and teacher.

Hollosy's bronze sculptures portray human figures reduced to arrangements of irregularly shaped overlapping plates: "this method of construction", the artist says, "was inspired by his life long fascination with medieval armor." Viewed from certain angles, his work seems to not portray figures, but to be non-objective arrangements of three-dimensional shapes. These are joined into eye-pleasing configurations, marked by a strong sense of rhythm. Open areas penetrate many of the torsos, reminiscent of Henry Moore's pieces, and over a period of time, become more abstract and monumental. Hollosy's figures are lyrical, humanly sensual and express a natural grace.

Gyuri's most recent large commission for Liberty Square in Boston, is a sixteen foot two inch bronze designed to rest on a round granite base seven and one half feet in diameter. Commissioned by the Hungarian Society of Massachusetts, the bronze is a memorial erected on the 30th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution.

Gyuri Hollosy was sculpture instructor at the Newcomb Art Department, Tulane University, New Orleans, and was assistant professor of the School of Fine Arts, Washington University, St. Louis. During the summers of 1964-67, Gyuri studied as an apprentice to sculptor Frank Varga in Detroit, Michigan. He has also served as the Missouri campaign chairman of the International Sculptor Center, Washington, DC; Board of Directors and treasurer of the Mid-American College Art Association, St. Louis; and was founder and instructor of sculpture of the Sculpture Center of New Orleans.

Mr. Hollosy's work has received many awards. A lengthy list of awards includes the Best of Show, Optima Gallery, New Orleans; Outstanding Artist Award, for contribution to the City of Cleveland; Artist of the Year Award presented by the Hungarian Art Foundation, Detroit, Michigan.

Recent commissions include Aspirations of Liberty, a Hungarian Revolution Memorial, Liberty Square Park, Boston; the Hungarian Commemorative Memorial bronze, Sunset Memorial Park, North Olmstead, Ohio; Heritage, a bronze high relief for Heritage Plaza, Meairie, Louisiana; the Dr. Luther King Memorial bronze bust for the Martin Luther King Multipurpose Center, Layfayette, Louisiana; and the Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty Memorial bronze, Mindszenty Plaza, Cleveland, Ohio.

Gyuri's sculpture has been exhibited in more than twenty regional and national shows. Most recent shows include a one-man show at St. Louis, and the Hungarian Retrospective Exhibition at St. Louis University.

Many lecturers and workshops have been given by the artist. A lecture at the Harvard University Club, Boston, the Salina Art Center and a "Basic Studio Art Courses for Community Colleges" lecture at the 49th Mid-American Art Association, Indianapolis, Indiana are among his most recent lectures.

Mr. Hollosy has had articles published about his work. A lengthy list of both museums and private collections in the United States and Europe which have a piece of sculpture by Gyuri Hollosy could be written.
