    painting

    In this series I choose as theme corners of rooms that I inhabit in my daily life, each one with subtly highlighted objects, through the suggestion of titles of the works: Corner with fern; Corner with Van Gogh’s biography; and, Corner with bubble plastic. As if the corner became stage and scenery so that the focused items can incorporate a certain personality and become characters. I usually use photographic references that I transform during the transportation to my paintings, either by changing colors, denaturing the light or by proceeding with other treatments. I do this in order to promote tension between photographic image and pictorial construction and at the same time with the intention of highlighting the solitary and mysterious aspect of places and things, seeking to bring to my work a kind of strangeness existing in the visible world.

    Fault Line is a project I am doing in the small coastal town of Brooklin, Maine. The protagonist is my younger cousin Adam, who lives there. I also photograph my brother, father, and other cousins. I chose the title because a fault line alludes to where the earth splits in an earthquake (a metaphor for a divided family with a complicated history) and also alludes to fault, or blame (I wonder, how does a family support each other, even when things aren't perfect?) My goal is to show the weight we all carry and how we are both connected and isolated from each other.

    painting

    I'd like to think that my work denounces craft, finish, precision, virtuosity and even ambition. I take a rather more imaginative and playful approach to the medium of oil painting, that is considered to be old fashioned. My constant questioning of how much work really is needed to make an artwork, is something I thrive on. My aim is to observe and question things with intensity but to leave them unresolved, without conclusion, to avoid being predictable and going down well known paths. This materialises in the constant revisions within the picture, re-painting the layers and layers of the previous compositions which finally gives my paintings a subtle vibrating energy.

    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.

    painting

    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?
