WINSTON CHMIELINSKI

Artist Winston Chmielinski - "A thought about paintings: potentially their backsides remain the same so that everything else can change, in full sight, chaotically, unabashedly honest in metaphor and biography–this brush stroke is how I’ve lived my life, one might say–inciting the Painted to proclaim its inverse existence, like a face with all its sensory orifices projecting instead of taking in, or a still-life commanding you to stand still and be seen".

PAINTINGS BY MARK POSEY

Los Angeles-based artist Mark Posey - "My current art is driven by a desire to most accurately represent an unfiltered sense of self. My paintings are therefore more about me than the subject being painted. Through my art I strive to make a genuine connection with the viewer." facebook saatchionline ]

VOODOO - PAINTINGS BY TILL RABUS

Till Rabus is a Swiss artist who spends divides his time between Paris and Neuchatel. Till’s work of art resembles a photograph of an unusual and thought-provoking composition. Upon closer inspection, the photographic illusion dissipates to reveal the classic medium of oil on canvas.

EGGCUBISM BY ENNO DE KROON

I have never written a review before but I would like to say Bravo to the author of these works, they are amazing. I have seen a lot of things in my life, but… In a word, I think these works EGGCUBISM, are a little funny and interesting as well and I can say that this is an attempt from the artist to create a novel way of perceiving perspective. 

Netherlands, Rotterdam-based Artist Enno De Kroon - As a painter I consider egg cartons as two-and-a-half dimensional objects which offer me remarkable possibilities for imagery. The waves of the egg cartons limit the viewer’s perception; they also make him aware of his positioning towards the image. The intentional limitation in subjective perception gives room for imagination and recall: the process of occlusion. By a fusion of direct and indirect perception conventional imagery is overtaken. At first sight this leads to a physical and mental incompleteness, that forces an integration which can only take place within the inner experience, apart from time and space. (compare the ‘head of Janus’, that looks at the present and the future congruently.)

COLOR LANDSCAPES

Germany, Berlin based Artist Michael Luther - The subject of my work is painting itself. Themes can be: the color itself, miniature-landscapes composed of oil-paint, the atelier or exhibition room, concerning subjects of art history or actual proceedings at the art market. Important is the execution, the energy and concentration which is immanent and shown in a painting – it is result and an object of meditation.

WILDERNESS TIPS

Artist Zachari Logan - “Landscapes are accounts of both literal time and place. Before they are either of those they are mindscapes. Whether imagined or observed they evoke the weight of identity. In previous work, my body maintained the singular pose or character of a glyph. A sign that portrayed an idea or construction. Not a portrait, in the individual sense, these theatrical “poses” imagined a world unto themselves. Still the catalyst, my body is present within Wilderness Tips but ceases to be the sole focus. This shift in representation is transformative, towards creating images that posit intuitive mood rather than theatrical extravagance. The title, a nod to a book of short stories by Canadian writer Margaret Atwood Wilderness Tips (1991) explores ideas of language as survival within the spectre of wilderness, a terrain that in actuality is the unravelling of the lives of her characters. Through the spectacle of plant and animal life and the ambiguity these manifestations impart, I become a spectator as well, imagining my own body not outside nature, but an allegorical aspect of it”.

AMAZING SERIES OF ARTWORK BY MICHAEL REEDY

Michael Reedy was born in Galesburg, Illinois. He received a BFA in Drawing from North Central College, a MFA in Painting from Northern Illinois University. He began teaching at EMU in 2005. Portraiture is central to his artistic studies and has been for the past twelve years, he says. Reedy identifies a particular interest in depictions of the human body that fall outside the canon of art history, such as cartooning and medical illustration.

ARTIST ANDY DIXON
Canada, Vancouver-based artist Andy Dixon (facebook) - Growing up involved in Vancouver’s punk music scene, I was moved by the energy and urgency in the music and drawn to the idea that the impulse of expression was valued above technical skill. Examining how I defined an artist’s skill-set in punk culture, I began developing an alternative and more poetic set of criteria for deciding what was ‘good’. The emotional response of the audience became my barometer, which I decided was not necessarily tied to traditional measures of an artist’s technical proficiency. I naturally carried this forward into my current work.

HORIZON FIELD HAMBURG, DEICHTORHALLEN, GERMANY

(27 April - 16 September 2012)

Sculptor  Antony Gormley - “This entire project could be seen as the translation of a vast painting into a literal sounding board for the spirit and consciousness of the viewer. There is no subject to this work other than the people who participate in and on it.”

HORIZON FIELD HAMBURG will provoke an experience of re-orientation and re-connection with walking, feeling, hearing and seeing.

Visitors to Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen will be confronted by a space that is almost 4,000 sq. m. in size, nearly 19 meters high and virtually empty. Here, a vast, black, reflective structure will float 7.5 meters above the floor, inviting adventure. The suspended, slightly oscillating platform exploits the structural potential and architectural context of the Deichtorhallen building, taking visitors into a new spatiotemporal matrix.

SUB-MARGE

Sao Paulo, Brazil-based Artist Ebbëto Grafx

By its own physical and psychological nature, the human being is secluded. It enters the world alone, creates and walks its path across it, till, alone, it leaves it.

As Orson Welles once said - “We`re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we`re not alone.“

SUB-merge intends to pass this ontological state to the spectator; putting him face-to-face with himself, making him “feel the solitude”, which is intrinsic to the human being. The “Submersion” of the individual within himself; the moment where the “Self” is found in it’s absolute wholeness.
