Artists On Review

Visual Poetry: Sona Asemani

Let's hug (No.3) - Oil on canvas 80 x 80 cm

“Painting is like visual poetry, and oil makes it smoothly flows on my canvas. I believe creating a painting is the only way to stay motivated. The combination of vivid colours and tempting women's portraits represents the fiery part of me that I usually don't dare to show in society.”

ESSENCE - Mixed photography and digital collage 50 x 70 cm

Against this background, my works are a homage to life, to our being."

Retro-futurism: Scott Troxel

King (2021)

"I draw on the aesthetics of bygone technology and the forward-looking designs of the Atomic Age and mid-century modernism to make dynamic, retro-futurist wooden sculptures that evoke nostalgia for the past as much as they look to the future. I am fascinated by the way pieces of technology, culture, and design reveal their age and aim to make work that cannot be pinned to a specific era."

Who We Are: Nevena Ivanović Guagliumi

Enjoy the silence - Combined technique on paper 24 x 30 cm

The Perfectionist: Junru Xie

In Sunshine - Ink pen on paper 44 x 43 cm

"The beauty of realistic pen-and-ink painting is that it uses just a black line to paint a rich and delicate picture. It presents a beauty of vicissitudes. I like the color of black, white and gray. Its deep, quiet yet noble quality profoundly attracts me."

Formalism: Ulla Ferdinandsen

Untitled/2 Acrylic on canvas 100 x 120 x 4 cm

Pop! Art: Lenore Rae Lampi

Powder Puff - Ceramics 18 x 12 x 14 in.

"In stark contrast to past work, the new series explores the notion of adornment of the affordable kind. Ribbons, bows, and streamers in a historical context may evoke feelings of nostalgia, kitsch, and pomp. Allow me to reference Pop Art to describe the work, with the intention to monumentalize these humble objects."

Spiritualized: Joel Shapses

"During my 55-year career, many changes and growth have come to me. I am now more excited about new techniques and materials to create than I have since I started. I get my inspiration from many sources which include nature, spirituality and my emotions."

Pure Form: Elena Saracino

Gravity - Black Belgian marble 9 x 11 x 11 cm

"My sculptures investigate an inner world veiled in symbolic metaphors.
