Cultivating nature — The paintings of Mark Pack

I have always favored the above quote by Brice Marden because it describes the fundamental ideas that I try to embody in my artwork.  In the simplest sense, I am painting about paint – but not as an end in itself. While exploring the material qualities and processes of painting, I am thinking of how these relate to life. ~Mark Pack  I...

Alfred Freddy Krupa’s artistic handwriting

One of my primary goals in my own artistic expression is to avoid the abyss of being “cute”, “tasty”, “nice” and any other deeply rooted formalism (particularly in stereotypical motives/composition and superficial “spirituality”). On other hand, I am trying to reach direct, spontaneous, raw expression, with a heavy emphasis on...

Pierre Kiandjan’s illusions of motion

Pierre Kiandjan is an artist based in Paris, France. As Pierre is selecting color mixes, he aims to create illusion of motion, space, and temperature. The challenge consists in gathering simple shapes within complicated blendings. His pieces reveal a clear use of color shades and broken lines.

It is strongly important that a viewer standing opposite my artwork feels a necessity to reflect. It is crucial to create a desire to stop the moment, to think over, try to understand and probably to...

The plastic metaphors of Valentina Baicuianu

Many of my works are personal experiences and emotions translated into a plastic metaphor that invites its viewers to do, in turn, the decoding exercise. My focus is on the entire everyday life spectrum, my overall influence come from life itself, people and my emotions. ~Valentina Baicuianu

The real life abstractions of Alison Bignon

I display real life stories through my created abstract portraits. After drawing upon exchanges with ordinary people, it’s in my apartment in Paris where I listen to and transcribe their stories; carefully archiving them in what I call an “emotional data bank”. Then, using a range of media, including videoed performance...

Bra Bra Bra — The visual art of Andrea Dankova

My body of work consists of surreal and Freudian interpretations of inner life and outward expressions of womanhood. According to Freud, the bra in our dreams signifies support, security, dignity and self-respect. Each photograph depicts different condition and emotional state inherent to femaleness –  from facing down gender stereotypes...
