From the beginning of the 1960s I only sent pictures to exhibitions sporadically. I painted pictures and I realized that more and more colour patches were stepping off my canvases. These colours became autonomous, they made me think, later on they offered themselves to be objects of specific examinations. I started exploring the laws of the realm of colours passionately. I was looking for the reason why one colour seems alive and another dead, while in one we feel the vibration of life, while the other one cannot even start to speak. Why is it that if we consider some hues that seem very similar, some of them always look good as compositions, while others look always false. Why is it that our choice of colours for a pictorial representation is only free within certain limits. I have realized that aesthetic judgements may be affected by physiological factors, and these judgments can be described by psychometric scales derived from physical quantities. I started researching the relations between space experience, function and colours. I became captive to colour dynamics, a new science. I built up and performed sets of experiments. I have used various equipment, computers to assist me with my work. I became a research scientist, I wrote publications, gave lectures… 



The lectures listed below may be viewed in the EsterházyCastle in Pápa, in the permanent exhibition of Antal Nemcsics, on touchscreen monitors.

These lectures were originally given in the Technical University of Budapest, in the International Academy of Colour Sciences and in International Congresses.
