Agota especially values the process of creating which is intuitive and guided by the subconscious mind. Therefore, her creative method is related to a surrealistic technique - automatism. She transforms spontaneously appearing visions into symbolic and allegorical narrative during the painting. The colour palette is also the result of an intuitive creating process. Bright, playful and decorative facade often covers complex and contradictory content.
As for the main narrative of the painter's works, human beings and nature are always at the centre of the paintings. Instead of depicting traditional landscape Agota seeks to transform it into an emotionally charged dreamscape, where man and nature interact with each other. Moreover, her art represents subjective experiences, psychological states. Through artistic means of expression and free, associative language, the painter explores her inner world and tries to connect with the viewer both mentally and psychologically.
