J'aime les formes, les matières et les texture. Belle créativité.
I like the forms, the matters and texture. Beautiful creativity.

"Originally a midwest girl. Born in Detroit Michigan and raised in Barrington Illinois. My mother, an artist, encouraged my creativity every day. My father, an avid outdoorsman, took me on many fishing trips and hikes. Always insisting that I look closely at the details in nature and that I sit and listen to the sounds of it.

I studied fine arts and sciences at the University of Oregon and then moved to Portland Oregon where I lived for ten years as a working artist. In June of 2005 I moved to a rural area in the North Shore of Massachusetts where I have continued my career as a painter, designer and mixed media artist. I am continually inspired by the natural beauty around my home." From her website

Erin Petson

Belle utilisation du mixe média...
Beautiful use of mixed media...

"An artist and illustrator, Erin works at the cutting edge of traditionnal and mixed media. Her love of drawing blends seamlessly with textures and montage to create powerfull and provocative images. Her subjects are often withdrawn, on edge and detached from their surroundings, which adds to the mystery of Erin’s work and contrasts its delicacy. Erin constantly experiments with media, scale and reference in her work. You are likely to find tape, collage, magazine clippings and textiles in amongst her pencil drawing and painting."

Les territoires recréés par Berrini m'inspirent... Quelle belle façon de jouer avec des cartes...
The territories recreated by Berrini inspire me... Which beautiful way of playing with maps...

"Francesca Berrini transforms vintage maps of places she has longed to visit into fine art maps of entirely new and imagined worlds. She obsessively tears up original vintage maps into tiny pieces, and then reconstitutes them, using a painterly process, into new maps and directional devices that reflect a longing for places unseen.

At first glance, from afar, Berrini's works look like a collection of high-quality maps and atlases with unfamiliar continents and geographic markings. As you examine the details of the maps a bit closer, and try to follow the geographic and geopolitical information displayed, you do a double-take as you realize that the maps themselves are actually constructed from miniscule pieces of other maps, forming new terrain, new geographies, and new names of places in entirely new languages. Berrini maintains the abstract language of maps, yet plays with our notions of their unspoken authority and overall usability. " From Veviza gallery website

Mum, Green Grass

"Green Grass of Tunnel was made by the talented team of Joe Gerhardt and Ruth Jarman from Semiconductor. Inspired by the mysterious terrian where the music was made they remodelled the very lighthouse and valley the band lived whilst recording Finally We Are No One. They also brought to life Ovar's playful drawings that can be seen on this video. More of Semiconductor's work can be see here at their homepage" Info from U-Tube

Pour les formes, le papier et le blanc...
For the forms, paper and the white...

"Hadid is a forerunner to the quotidian in today’s language of contemporary architecture. Before the advent of computers, her notions for building designs for today and the future began as abstractions on canvas and paper with obvious references to Russian constructivism, vorticism and futurism. This was no passing quote from past genres but a knowing absorption of historic art movements whose ambitions clearly pointed beyond the scope of the canvas. Hadid’s vision was so complex and light-years ahead of her time that people could not even relate or understand the levels of abstraction, which in her mind must have seemed as plain as daylight. Here she presents a new body of work made specifically for the show that uses paper in a relief-like fashion, resulting in a three dimensional drawing with no marks and a way of turning origami into a hyper progressive form of art and design."

David Dimichele

"David DiMichele’s current body of work, Pseudo Documentation, is a series of large-scale photographs depicting grandiose installations in fantasy exhibition spaces. DiMichele creates this work by first building scale models of exhibition spaces, and producing original artworks in drawing, painting and sculpture mediums, which are sited in the spaces and then photographed to create the final works. The Pseudo Documentation photographs are inspired by DiMichele’s background with photography, installation art, abstract forms and passion for monumental museum and gallery architecture combined to create this photographic series of work." from Paul Kopeilin Gallery Website

Texture et réalisme des propos...
Texture and realism of the remarks...

"Ambitiously creative from a young age, Tez Humphreys was born in a small coastal town in North Wales. Drawing mainly faces, Tez had a sketchbook basically strapped to his left ankle, which has always been a daily vital importance to him. Later on while attending the University at Leeds Metropolitan, Tez attended the Ba Hons Graphic Arts and Design course, which really brought out the best in him. Here he found his strengths in composition, collage, and mixing with paint. He has a studio displaying found “kitsch objects”, and textured surfaces which he collects and believes that they “are all part of a subconscious cycle of events that one day everything will be used in a piece of work.” Tez is inspired by James Jean, and many masters dating back to the Pre-Raphaelites, traveling, and seeing everything as an inspiration. Always experimenting with different processes such as screen-printing, cut and past collage, photocopying, Photoshop, but mainly staying organic and textured, loving and letting accidents happen. Tez hopes to be globally recognized as an illustrator/designer, and would like to be a part of a multi-disciplinary studio, getting involved, and starting a collective. "

Wang Qingsong

Wang Qingsong, Commercial War, 170 x 300 cm, Photograph, 2004

"My new work "Commercial War" focuses on the power of ads and the misconceptions that ads can create. For this photo work, I constructed a chaotic backdrop where over 20 people are depicted in a frenzy of competition with some even fist fighting while jostling for ad positioning on a huge billboard advertisement; this struggle for the most optimal outdoor ad placement is perceived as inevitably bringing power and influence. The struggle for ad placement in public space in China is not unlike a battlefield strewn with casualties after a pitched battle for power."

Wang Qingsong,Home, 120x250cm, Photograph, 2005

In “Home”, I built up demolished walls of an old house. It reminded us of being allured to find treasures from rubbish when we were young. I threw in a lot of garbage, including daily waste, electrical trash, chemicals, and etc. Until now, I am still not sure if the demolished houses can be excavated to find some treasures. Probably bigger profits can be created from demolition itself, which are so popular in China when new high buildings replace the old houses.

Hybridation et simplicité. J'aime tout simplement!
Hybridization and simplicity. I like quite simply!

"I am quite intrigued by the notion of hybridization; the fusing of elements that may at first glance appear to be unrelated. I also am drawn to found objects – altering them conceptually so that their meanings and original uses or intents are re-purposed. I like when “wrong” things are fused together i.e.: tanks made of bright pink felt, sewing onto paper, coagulant herbs or hunted animals on rifle targets, sewing with out thread (the act of mending with out its mending capabilities), the back side of embroidery shown as the front, flowered tanks “fighting” cute clouds or other things in nature.

Richard Long est un incontournable artiste du Land Art. Forme, texture et sens...
Long Richard is an unmissible artist of Land Art. Forms, texture and sensitivity...

"Richard Long was born June 2, 1945, in Bristol, England. He studied at West of England College of Art, Bristol, between 1962 and 1965. By 1964, Long was already making Earthworks and experimenting with the idea of impermanence, a theme that would inform his work throughout his career. Long’s use of walking as an art form was introduced as early as 1967. From 1966 to 1968, he studied at the St. Martin’s School of Art, London, under Anthony Caro and Phillip King. While there, he became closely associated with fellow student Hamish Fulton." Text from Guggenheim Collection Website
