    collage

    I am a french collagist. I began the collage seven years ago. I work especially on series by looking constantly for different directions.

    Three are extracted from a series of collages titled 'Green Lady' and the other four are extracted from a long series of more than 300 abstract, instinctive, spontaneous, impulsive collages.

    I’m sitting on a hill with my Ecuadorian friends. We are looking down at the city of Quito. The sun is shining bright. They say that their ancestors worshiped the sun. They called it Inti. It's the same sun, but everything is new for me.

    This was my first trip to Ecuador. The first step into South America.

    I wandered around.

    I talked to people. I made friends. I saw the flow of everyday life.

    I thought, how these people can live calmly, under an active volcano.

    The Andes and the Pacific Ocean - amazed me.

    Landscapes, cultures, traditions, people...

    I was only more curious when I left.

    Our urban and geographic environment is in a constant state of transformation. My work explores states of change between order and chaos that relate to this experience of environmental shift.

    My paintings explore ideas of Fold, Gesture and Movement. These states can remain calm or reconfigure coherence in the painting. I am interested in the connection between a fold as it relates to architecture or geography and gesture as it relates to aspects of drawing and language and 20th century painting. This series struggles to define beauty, exploring abstraction as incident and artifact of the process in which paint is applied, exposing interior and exterior spaces that may not coexist. There is a constant struggle between surface and ground; between paint and the boundaries within the painting.

    photography

    I was born in Ileia, Greece. I’ve been involved with the cinema and have produced two short films and one feature film, which took part in festivals, in Greece and abroad. I started dealing with photography the last four years. I’m self taught and the kind of photography I’ve been dealing with, is experimental photography and in particular the possibilities of deformation of the human body. Abstract photography is photographic style that attempts to escape from what we traditionally know as photography and to turn towards to other mediums of art such as painting. The alienated body and fuzzy features of the engravings of the matter reflects the ambiguous and unstable emotions and thoughts that constitute that subject.

    painting

    Ben originally comes from Dungeness in Kent and spent time living in Greatstone, Rye and Winchelsea Beach whilst growing up before moving to London where he attended Goldsmiths College. With the majority of his childhood spent by the Kent and Sussex coastline, and being the son of a local fisherman, he developed a deep love of the sea, and the coast that meets it. His aim with his paintings is to convey the empty, bleak beauty of these areas and their oddly angular shingle shapes against the expanse of sea and sky.

    painting

    My work operates through things, situations and states that enter the paintings and run their course. Does the act produce the meaning? There is an interest in additive and subtractive actions. Through exploring texture, and the use of layering I open up ambiguous spaces. Repetition of continuous rhythmic motifs creates an essence of a pre-existing thing, which makes the paintings partially representational. All paintings are marked with erasures, moments of presence and precision. I explore the difference of mark making resembling a print aspect. There is a friction of erased marks and layered marks on the surface containing erasures, traces and stains. There is an abstraction in my paintings that comes from this investigation and experimentation with paint and deconstruction of an image. I search for a diverse variation between each painting while maintaining the exploration of mark making.

    collage

    My inspiration comes from my experience of mental illness. My methodology reflects how I process information; taking something, reimagining it, exploring its possibilities and making something new with it. Breaking things down, seeing them from a different perspective / in a different context helps me find something I can relate to / understand. I twist concepts, challenges perceptions and deal with difficult emotions / ugly topics by endeavouring to unveil something beautiful. What constitutes beauty? Does this process of distortion make the subject matter more approachable? easier to digest and understand?

    painting

    These works chronicle a recent month abroad in Italy and were created on site throughout my travels. During the trip, painting became a means to process the experience of a new place, culture, and environment. A way to understand the congested narrow roads in Venice, the crowded vaporetto rides, the chaos of the Santa Maria Novella train station in Florence, the quiet campos where locals sit and read newspapers, the graffiti around a door lock. Using abstract language, the works delve into the feelings of uneasiness, melancholy, joy, and explore the phenomena of present experience becoming intertwined with memory and the past.

    This is an old pier of boats, abandoned in the city of Syracuse, Sicily. The charm of this place is given by the tranquility and closeness of the sea.

    collage

    Paper collage is at the core of my art practice. I am drawn to its immediacy and spontaneity. It is the perfect medium as it enables constant transformation. The collages ultimately take form in other mediums such as textiles. It is a depiction of the natural world and our relationship to it. Natural History, Victorian imagery, tales with anthropomorphic themes, are a source of inspiration for me. I meld together traditional collage techniques with distortion turning things upside down bringing the beautiful and ugly together. Sourcing and collecting imagery occurs over a period of time. Repetition is an important part of my method, endless cutting, constructing and breaking things down again. Various birds, beasts and flora reoccur throughout the work. They are sliced up, scaled up and morphed together to create strange and unexpected hybrids.
