Artists On Review

Rigid Minimalism: Alexander Saner

Tension 5 - Steel 35 x 51 x 37 cm

“The greatest complexity is the greatest simplicity.”

Swiss self-taught artist, Alexander Saner was born in 1953 and in the early years of his career was active as a cartoonist for newspapers. Since 1993, Saner has produced three-dimensional art including sculptures, objects and photography.

Textile Art: Leila Bokel

Untitled, 2016 - Mixed media App. 150 x 35 x 25 cm Photographed by Marco Rodrigues and Eduardo Costa

“My current research started with the necessity of dealing with new materials. This search resulted in extensive work with fabrics, different types of threads, leathers, textures, and colors. As a result, the finished operas have pointed to questions that cross the feminine world and their tensions.”

Reviving the Past: Pia Forsberg

“In recent years, I've painted unknown people who no longer exist. Feeling of timelessness. Something that is left when everything else disappears.”

Mexican Painter: Karla de Lara

Lujuria (Photography by Lee Jeffries) Series: Becoming - Acrylic, high Gloss 175 x 175 cm

Karla de Lara is an outstanding Mexica artist, considered the most recognized Mexican Contemporary POP artist. Famous art critics have coined her "The Mother of Hyperrealist Pop Art", with more than 220 solo exhibitions in 36 countries around the world. 

The Purpose of Art: Sheila Eder

Highway 70 - Collage 13 x 9.5 in.

Beyond Realism: Kashawelski

Periculum In Mora - Oil on canvas 140 x 95 cm

“My art is predominantly based on realism, shrouded with elements of mystery which are coming from my inner world and sublime thinking. In many cases the composition is set in a form of a rebus, with a desire to provoke the audience’s imagination to unlock the true meaning of the story.”

American Printmaker: Deborah Maris Lader

The Heron and The Fish - Etching with Chine-collé 24 x 22 in.

Deborah Maris Lader (Artist, Musician, Performer, Administrator) is the Founder/Director of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative since 1989, and member of the touring indie-folk band, Sons of the Never Wrong.

Storytelling: June Sira

A Girl With Flowers On Her Shirt - Tempera on canvas 120 x 87 cm

"I have always made drawings. Ever since I was a young child. It was just unnatural for me to do anything else even though my parents thought artists was not a profession. The role of an artist is to be true to yourself."

Still Life in the Post Modern Era: Cristina H Melo

Time Lapse - Photograph 30 x 40 cm

"I use photography to record images. And in each, I see a kind of metaphor, since, as we know, the eyes do not see the same as the photo, any photo, shows."

The Texture of the Female Experience: Naima White

Sand In our Blood-Our Feet On The Ground - Photograph 12 x 16 in.

"There are many ways to articulate pattern, and my interest in them stems from the innate humane need to find them in almost everything that we look at. When we look at pictures of Mars or the Moon many times we will see a face, as if to identify something familiar in the strange and unfamiliar."

New Alphabet: Dave Weindorf

Zodiac, 2017 - Acrylic enamel, glazing and watercolor on clay panel 48 x 36 in.

“I read a lot about historical figures, primitive cultures, and ancient symbols. That definitely influences my art. I feel like I'm bringing the past to today in my expressionistic paintings with bold compositions of line work, watercolor, and abstract glyphs.”

Pending Mystery: Nan Xu

Grand Sonata - Oil on canvas 36 x 48 in.

“I am concerned with the communication of the unknown energy between nature and human through the event of nature or civilization transformation in a magic-realistic world.”

Nostalgic Realism: Yi Tsen

Brush - Graphite on paper 77 x 61 cm

"Through my drawings, I want to share my life experience. Particularly, my childhood and the longing for my hometown."

Sergiu Roman: Spiritual Transformations

Mirabile - Oil and gold enamel on canvas

"This “portraits” series talks about changes, about the psychological and spiritual transformations that occur in people’s lives that make them more mature, more aware of their own mortality, spirituality, destiny. Actually, it’s about changes and mystery; about the unseen forces that push us forward."

Young Energy: Barbara Demsar

To The Light, 2017 - Acrylic and collage on canvas 100 x 100 cm

"The artistic world I have created is centered on abstract landscapes. My deepest emotions, perceptions of the real world, thought and expression are subtly imbued in my works. I purposefully strive for a pictorial space that is harmonious, bright and airy, dominated by an energy that is childlike."

Performance Documentation: Stéphane Vereecken

Rabid Animals Series - Portrait 002

“The relationship between sociology, the signifier, and the invisible world influenced me a lot. A universe of reality and also of surrealism. An image photographed and also painted and drawn.”

Texture Adventure: Ida Schjaerff

Wintertales 3 - Magic Snowdrops - Acrylics, pen and transfer on canvas 140 x 120 cm

“ I love the simple fantasy-world of a child that has not yet lost her innocence. I believe in what she perceives, and I believe she is delicate, vulnerable and invincible in her immediate perception of the world.”

What is it? Andrew Etheridge

Primary Specimen II - Silicone and acrylic 3 x 2 x 2 in.

“Throughout history, the human has tried to explore his skin in order to understand, cope, and advance his existence. The focus of my work re-imagines the body as a new creative hyper-surrealistic form by morphing, rearranging, confining, amputating, and displaying its parts for the viewer to examine.”

Arrachme Art: Spirit Science and Art

Embracing Freedom - Mixed media, brushes and tools on canvas - 48 x 36 x 1.5 in.

"I have found a place where science, spirit, and art converge. It is in this peaceful place where time expands and endless possibility exists."

Monumental Gesture : Piotr Leczkowski

Birth Fine Art print 70 x 50 cm

Photographer based in Poland, Piotr Leczkowski’s resume includes notable, international exhibitions and awards in Poland, Russia, the United Kingdom, Japan, and online in association with organizations like Sony World Photography Award, Tokyo Foto Award,  Monochrome Awards, Photo Awards.
