Larsen, Nadja

Denmark

Painting

Recently I’ve aimed to create a pictorial remix of my abstractions from Montenegro. I believe that, as an artist and human being, remix is necessary because you constantly learn and live in order to reassess values ​​and priorities in ones life. Originally from the Balkans (Belgrade), I lived most of my adult life in Denmark. This dislocation, one might say, has indeed led to regular attemps to “remix” both as a person and as an artist in order to rediscover oneself again.  
I have been privileged to exhibit at several juried international solo and group exhibitions in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Serbia, the Netherlands, Italy, Dubai and in New York.
 

Lee, Won

Canada / Mexico

Sculpture

Won H. Lee, a Toronto-based sculptor was born in Korea and trained in fine arts in the United States.

Lindberg, Pauline,

USA, Sweden

Painting, Sculpture

Pauline Lindberg was born (1966) and raised in New York City and moved to Sweden in 1980 and is currently living in the town of Helsingborg. Pauline is a mixed media artist that mainly works on large canvas, but also with sculpting, resin, metal on smaller 3d artwork.
Her art conveys subtle expressions intended to create a sense of mobility between the past and the present. Where nothing stands still, directions of travel change, as long as it moves forward. An artistic endeavour to constantly remain on a journey.
 

Lindhout, Ton

Germany

Painting

Ton Lindhout was born in The Hague, The Netherlands. Nowadays he lives in Germany in the rural region of Emsland where he gets his inspiration during long walks with his Labrador Gino. All the different colours of the changing seasons, the endless horizon and, above that, towering clouds in the big sky... Maybe there is a landscape painter hidden in every Dutchman. You can tell he is a nature lover and wants to share this with like-minded artists.
 

Lofgren, Gunilla

Sweden

Painting

Born in the northwest Sweden, part of my family has Sami ancestors. Today I live in an old and nice house, not far from my birthplace where the mountains are like soft waves in the sky. Over the years I have worked in different materials, now  mostly in Salix, textiles, sculpture, metal leaf and art creations in glowing red and reversed alchemical processes, and a wish to be part of  an energized movement/rhythm. I discovered Vedic Art some years ago, and I consciously use the principes of Vedic Art in my work. From structure, order to cosmos out into creative chaos, between immobility and movement, lightness and weight. To feel the challenge in the visualization, the watching and a wish to see behind, beyond the artistic expression. Dare to see, dare to break the patterns. What does the viewer see? Who is the viewer? Who sees whom? Maybe it becomes a dialogue between you and you? A movement without end! 
 

Loureiro, Fabiolla

Brazil

Painting

Passionate by photography since I know myself as a person, the result of my work today is an extensive study related to travel street photography for 10 years now. To travel and to photograph is how I achieve my freedom to the maximum. Is who I am, how I feel and express myself. Cold nights, noir environments and rainy seasons are my favourite themes.
My biggest influence comes from names like Brassaï, André Kertész, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sabine Weiss, and others. The black and white is my main obsession.
 

Maenz, Karl

Switzerland

Painting, Photography

Reflecting my character, my artistic expressions vary from the spontaneous, extroverted, impulsive, to the calmly meditated, introverted, disciplined. My references may be the arts of all forms, nature, or even the state of mind. Yet my paintings remain abstract, non representational. Stylistic refences are the spontaneity of tachism (Twombly) versus the discipline of color field minimalism (Newman). Putting the two next to each other seems to create a powerful creative field, which combined I have not yet managed to express on the same canvas. Perhaps Motherwel has come closest in his Elegies to the Spanish Republic. There is so much to explore, learn and express.
 

Marcinek, Annemarie

Netherlands

Painting

Through abstract forms and vibrant colours, my artwork invites you to dive deeper into the process and desire for unification. Themes that are addressed are the need for revolution and celebration, but also the pain of exclusion and the longing for revelation. Annemarie Marcinek is a mixed media artist, expressing emotions and movement in a thoughtful way. Her intention is creating art that is uplifting as well as deepening.
 

Mascarell, Rosa

Spain

Painting

I was painting before I learned to walk and talk. Being a child I wanted to become an artist, but growing up I realized about the ambiguity of the word "artist". I committed to the investigation of this word before any decision. I studied philosophy, esthetics and art theory at University level, discovering the big discussion going on since once upon a time. So I put myself back to work with dirty hands: I decided to become just a painter.
 

Mc Cann, Fran

Ireland

Painting

Fran Mc Cann, born in Belfast and now lives in south Galway Ireland, all his life he has been driven by art, a lot of his Inspiration comes from music, which he heard growing up in his own home and which can be heard just about everywhere in Ireland, also as a child he would hear old Irish mythology stories and in time to come he would knit the music and the old stories together and it is this that one sees in Fran's artwork today.
 

Mieling, Suzanne

Germany

Painting

After completing a degree course in fine art and visual communication at the Hamburg College of Fine Arts in Germany, I worked in the area of photography and applied art in the field of design. Later, painting became my preferred vehicle for my own personal artistic expression and since 2005 I have been displaying my works at exhibitions.
 

Misselbrook, Maria

Switzerland

Painting

As an artist, I admit being decidedly exacting. Without doubt, I draw inspiration from my Italian and German roots, which help combine southern creativity with northern rigor. I love to explore new challenges and avenues. Whilst continuing with new approaches in acrylic and mixed media, I have more recently added Indian Ink. My favorite colors, gold, red and black are often displayed in large square formats, which allow me to play with space and light, resulting in the architectural and graphic character of my art.
 

Montera, Sio

Philippines

Painting

Sio Montera is a visual-artist from the Philippines. His own brand of process-oriented abstraction narrates the sights, interactions, and experiences that are masterfully translated onto the canvas using acrylics and non-traditional tools. He experiments with industrial processes that lend an esoteric yet grounded feel to his paintings. The artist finds it essential to dissociate the process of image-making from any preconceived idea, thus createing non-representational art that are characterized by open color fields and gestural marks of varying degrees of intensity. The artist has a masters degree in painting and a doctorate degree in the creative industries.
 

Morant, Keith

New Zealand

Painting

I was born in England 1944 and have been obsessed with art all my life. I worked and exhibited in London and Southern England until moving to New Zealand in 1973, where I got married to my wife Trish. From 1986 I travelled and exhibited in London, New York, and Tokyo. My wife and I moved to New York in 1989 where I worked for a year and exhibited in Manhattan and London. I am now resettled in New Zealand as a full-time painter. My art is always a journey of discovery into the essence of being. It is an effort to externalise the truth of my own existence on as many levels as possible and communicate a greater awareness of the quality of life. It is an attempt to generate enquiry into the greater spheres of understanding which lie beyond conventionalised intellection.
 

Moritani, Shihoko

Japan

Painting

I have always been moved to express my ideas that are motivated by a positive emotion, a feeling of anxiety and dissatisfaction with the status quo. Such feelings deep in my heart power my drive towards artistic creation. Books written by my favorite Japanese authors also help me explore and establish the image in my mind. 
I started my career when two pieces of my work were selected for the Royal Academy of Arts, Summer Exhibition in 1984. 
 

Moon, Hye Ja

Korea

Painting

I was born in 1945. I try to capture the impression of the moment when a thunder roars in the sky. My brush stars dancing in an almost absolute state of unconsciousness. It could sometimes be a gesture of hunger for or resistance against reality, and of the expression of indescribable romanticism at other times. A fresh shock from a contemporary big-band jazz music or a contemporary music played an orchestra creates a certain energy inside me. Graduated from Fine Art College,  Hongik University, studied Painting at Massachusetts Art College. I have shown 19 times at solo exhibitions, and participated around 250 times at group and invited exhibitions, both national and international.
 

Moore, Joy

Italy

Painting

Joy Moore studied art in Bristol and Birmingham graduating from Birmingham Art College in 1978. She later moved to London where she lived for 25 years running a dual career as a painter and as a manager of environmental projects. During this time she became an established artist exhibiting in galleries and international art fairs in England and mainland Europe. In 2006 she made a major change in her life by moving to Piemonte in northern Italy. The artist says about herself: “I am primarily a landscape painter having always been drawn to dramatic landscape. My work is about my response to the form, colour, space and light in the landscape. My aim is to paint the power and existence of the landscape, not the view of it.”
 

Musebrink, Gabriele

Germany

Painting

Gabriele Musebrink was born in Essen, Germany, and has German and Polish roots. Since 1993 she has been working exclusively as a freelancer artist in her own artists' studio and gallery in Essen and founded Hofwerkstatt – a holistic Center for Art and Meditation with her own Musebrink Art school (Kunstschule Musebrink).

Nader Selwan, Zeina

Lebanon

Painting

I am in love with nature’s beauty and wonders, and I often feel as if I am in a perpetual search for colors. All of this, as well as my interest in all other forms of art and my years of traveling to the great cities of the world and spending time in their museums and galleries, feeds into my art. I look at the world with a passionate point of view. My eyes see details that might not be important for others but that mean a lot to me. I translate them my own way, on my canvases. It’s all in my senses. I imagine forms and colours to everything I listen to, smell or touch.
In a world of black and white, I choose colours!

 

Nyby, Janni

Denmark

Painting

From my perspective, the world is very colourful, diverse, strange and nuanced, which is also reflected in my works. Most of my paintings are inspired by nature and some are quite abstract or figurative, others are a combination of both styles.
My artworks are exhibited primarily at art fairs, with art dealers, galleries, at art associations, in businesses and in my own gallery.
 

Oliveira Masferrer, Val

Portugal, Brazil, UK

Photography

Val Masferrer Oliveira is a Brazilian born photographer living in London. Her motto has always been "anything in life can be an inspiration" and from this she started to shoot, searching for a very personal approach. Her work goes from reality to imagination, which is how she sees the world. She always questions whether what we perceive is truly the reality or something revealed according to our life experience or our senses. She has been working on different projects since 2003 and each one of them reflects a certain period of her life.
 

Palleria, Sara

Italy

Painting

Sara Palleria was born in Rome where she currently lives and works. Graduated in Sciences of Education is parallel working at the artistic research in education, with particular reference to the world of colors related to the psychology of emotions. Nationally, she collaborates in the field of visual arts, with several institutions. She also takes courses and workshops of color image education for children and adults.
 

Pavon, F

Spain

Painting

The paintings of F. Pavón are examples of abstract expressionism in its purest form. Strongly inspired by the abstract expressionist movement of the 1940s and ‘50s, Pavón takes the spirituality and luminosity of Rothko’s colours along with the energy and vitality of Pollock’s gestural paint splatters to create his own fresh, contemporary interpretation of their modern masterpieces. Filled with vivid, yet earthy colours, and strong brushstrokes that move through the entire composition with a sense of uninhibited freedom, it’s no doubt that Pavón’s works reflect the inner emotions and energy of their creator.
 

Pazienza, Jennifer

Canada

Painting

Pixelated images appear in nanoseconds. Superhuman art installations challenge market economies. Still, Jennifer maintains an old-fashioned affair with oil paint. Drawn from traditions of the past, yet wholly rooted in the present, her paintings relieve us from the non-stop visual onslaught of contemporary life. Love, longing and a limited palette shape Jennifer’ poetic landscapes. A student of the ephemeral she paints to remember, to understand – to dissolve dualities and ease tensions.
 

Penfold, Elspeth

UK

Painting

Elspeth’s work is concerned with journeys, origins and destinations. She is drawn to forgotten spaces, ruins and iconic structures and is interested in how those structures merge into the landscape over time. These influences are reflected in her work, particularly the way in which she uses collage, paint and other materials, through a layering process to make her pieces.
 

Pieck, Ellen

Belgium

Painting

Starting out from greatly material art, featuring patchworks of silk, cotton, beads and lacework, Ellen Pieck followed her own personal path through research and experience, resulting in her present ability of mixing the deep with the beautiful. Changes signify openness but also growth, which in turn leads to discoveries and evolution: this artist takes us through fascinating chromatic and material labyrinths, indicating to us how the human condition still needs to be entirely explored and discovered
 

Pinder, Jennifer

Qatar

Painting

Jennifer Pinder’s compelling color and texture saturated works hang in boardrooms, homes, public spaces and offices across Australia, the US, Middle East and Europe. Her work has been the subject of a string of successful exhibitions in her homeland of Australia. In January 2011, Pinder held her first Middle East-based exhibition, “Unique Perspectives” at the art space at the Grand Hyatt Doha. Pinder’s medium is oil on canvas and are large scale pieces. She is currently represented in the US by the Agora Gallery in New York. Born in Melbourne, Australia, she currently lives in Qatar.
 

Rantzuch-Doll, Carmen

Germany

Painting

Painting to me means joy of color and experimentation with various materials.

The process until I can look at a work of art as perfect takes me through many different - sometimes even conflicting - emotions and sensations, but this gives each of my paintings a unique character and individuality. In every single brush stroke there is tension but there is also the feeling of harmony that flows trough me, filling me up with peace. The moving into deeper realms often leads me to a state of balance and contentment. I have also found through this art process a deeper knowlodge of my inner self. Hence the challenge aspect of my art originates my motto: Art is a game but it’s a very serious game
 

Reijerkerk, Marieta

Netherlands

Sculpture


Marieta Reijerkerk: ARTist of ‘smooth roughness’. She works with materials which come across her during world tours or on a quick run through her own home port Rotterdam. ARTist Marieta shapes materials without losing respect for the authenticity of the substances. Manipulations performed by ARTist Marieta are modest. Her mastery and craftiness contribute to the subtlety of her ARTworks.

 

Rich, Michael

USA

Painting

Michael Rich is a Professor of Art at Roger Williams University, Rhode Island. Time spent around the waters of Nantucket Island and the hills of central Italy helped to shape a love and interest in landscape and natural rhythms of color that remain very much a focal point in his work today. A dedicated practitioner of yoga, Rich is influenced greatly by Eastern philosophy and art in an approach to nature and landscape as a wellspring for spiritual investigation and meditation. Michael Rich’s work is featured internationally and throughout the United States in gallery and museum exhibitions.
 

Ricklefs-Bahr, Bärbel

Germany

Paintings

I often start my paintings in the meaning of Schiller's words "All art is dedicated to joy". Just doing. Feel the colours and find a form to realize a painting. When I place the canvas, I only have a rough idea of what I am going to paint. I often mix sand into the colours to give them more body, use iron, paper, wool, cement and everything else I like.
 

Rittmannsberger, Franz

Austria

Sculpture

My sculptures are often very similar to human fragments. The smooth surfaces of the structures let you forget that it is actually a hard and heavy stone. I did various journeys for study purposes to Scottland, Namibia, French, Eire, Norway, Spain, Greece, Persia, United States etc.
 

Robertson, Jeni

Australia

Painting

I left on my journey into Art in the late 70s when I started painting in Sydney. I realised I had an eye for structure and colour and tonal ability and in the early 80s I commenced formal training under the guidance of Richard Ashton at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney Australia. I am inspired by mood and atmosphere and artists such as Chagall and Turner.
 

Rodriguez, Eduardo

Spain

Painting

My work comes from a fundamental need to liberate my soul of the emotions that surge within it, sharing them with the world and thus transforming them into something manageable, visible and powerful. The events of my life have left deep impressions on my heart, and they all feed into my art and encourage my desire to communicate my explorations of my psyche.
My creative process is simple, always beginning with a blank canvas or piece of paper and letting my hand sketch out the vague idea that has formed in my mind. After that I sink into a state of awareness, fully connected to my thoughts and emotions, and develop and refine what I see until I reach the point where there is nothing missing, yet also nothing unnecessary.
 

Ross, Douglas

Ireland

Photography

I was born in New York City in 1954 and moved to Ireland in 1966. My primary concern as an artist is to explore the psychological and spiritual stories that unfold in all our lives. In much of my work I have engaged  the people that I am painting or photographing directly in exploration of the things that have shaped their lives. The dialogue begins verbally and moves into visual language as we explore settings, symbolism, dreams, visions and colour. I have been privileged to hear the stories of what Joseph Campbell calls "the hero's journey", a remarkable inner journey made by many  people in seemingly everyday lives. My work strives to reveal something of this invisible world.
 

Rowling, Carol

Australia

Painting

As nature has eroded its lines and textures in creation I like to imitate that by gouging on colours into the canvas. In “Traces of Memory”, I looked at the landscape at different times of the day, the dark intensity of evening, to the washed out colours of noonday heat and then onto sunset. By using an Angle grinder I make quick, sharp slashes to reveal the different colours underneath, this creates an immediate impression of the different effects and depths which various indentations into the layers can provide.
 

Rutten, Liesbeth

Netherlands

Sculpture

Liesbeth composes her sculptures often with all kinds of natural materials to find the characterizing structure that may represent her feelings.You can notice feathers, leaves or branches, tied together in an unusual way. She is inspired by the symbolic value of each of them and composes them in a simplistic and clear way, so that they become their own life and tell their own story. Liesbeth is born in 1953 in Venray, The Netherlands and since 1980’s she has been sculpting bronze art works.
 

Ryge, Rikke

Denmark

Painting

The overall theme in my paintings is contrasts. Contrasts in life – on the canvas. In my pictorial expression, I am absorbed by the energy that arises in the encounter between the simple and streamlined in contrast to the dynamic and chaotic. I’m committed to balancing this. I love the process with choosing, mixing, playing and combining colours in many different ways. 
I live and work in beautiful Silkeborg, where I have my studio and gallery.
 

Salcedo, Araceli

Mexico

Painting

Constantly inspired by nature, its shapes, colors, movement and its abstractions; I processed it in my imagination the real to abstraction and find my essence previous to the brush in meditation. Tipping expression with my feelings and state of mind. When a work is done and I am able to feel it and smell, I can confirm the success of a freely expressed artwork for spectators to build their own history and judgment. Through the years my maturity as a person and plastic artist show that I am still looping within me reflecting through my hands ideas, formats, canvas, means and colors reaching an infinite evolution of possibilities.
 

Schraner, Nicole, NINI

Switzerland

Painting

NiNi’s works flatter the eye for their refined structure, their intense texture and their deeply genuine expressivity. She creates the emotional tie between present and past by integrating carelessly cast away objects of every day’s life. This is how she achieves to have these forgotten materials emanate a new and highly emotional and sensual meaning. Food for the soul. This process of construction–decomposition– origination–destruction–creation reflects NiNi’s philosophy of what life is all about, here symbolically represented by the circle of life. 
 

Shroyer, Charlotte

USA

Painting

I am inspired by the world – its people, archaeology, and cultures. My painting is influenced by my favorite authors (i.e., Pamuk, Durrell, Pynchon, Vargas Llosa, Bolano) who explore duality of personality – what the individual shows to the world and what remains hidden to the world. A Ph.D. and work with learning disabled and deaf children and youth, many of whom had additional disabilities, has further influenced my work.
 

Spijkerman, Annemarie

Netherlands

Painting

My work stems from the desire to restore an original harmony while using nature's variety of shapes, colors, and senses as a source of inspiration. My paintings often resemble landscapes, and evoke locations where you once were, like to be or want to visit. The horizon acts as a focus of longing and a mirror of the mind. I believe in the revitalizing power of art, its communal imagery, shamanism, and the Zen tradition. I am more or less a storyteller with no words other than color, form, and gesture. Through the years, my creativity has become a path to meditation, while the process contributes to a greater unity. Aware of the commitment to achieve this unity, my studio serves as a place of joyful devotion.
 

Trillat, Philippe

Chile

Painting

Radicado en Santiago, Trillat amplía sus conocimientos junto a Villalón para desarrollar su propia experimentación abstracta, utilizando soportes como; lienzos, murales, madera, papel e incluso audiovisuales. En estos “mundos abstractos”, de colores vivos, luminosos, cítricos y vibrantes, gravitan elementos y formas indefinidas como en sueños, lo que da a su obra un toque de vanguardia decorativa que llama la “atención” del espectador.
Este concepto de “atención” lo conduce a la tridimensionalidad plástica superando ciertas limitaciones a la hora de poder representar los “cuerpos en el espacio”, por lo que ya lo importante no es que el espectador entre en la pintura, sino que la pintura llegue al espectador.

 

Vallet, Véronique

Francei

Painting

Véronique Vallet thinks that there are no big divides between abstract art and figurative art, it's just a question of interpretation, the way we feel what we see. She works in series, themes that give the idea of ​​evolution. Creating bridges between the past and the present, she remains fascinated by our cultural foundations and the idea of ​​their transmission. She wants sobriety, beauty, purity, composition. Specialized in the technique of oil painting, glaze and chiaroscuro which she does not hesitate to use in more modern works, as in her series "Intemporels".
 

van Dam, Rini

Netherlands

Sculpture

Rini's sculptures show a highly developed sense of shape and an endless patience. Worked with chisel and hammer, slowly the ancient stone is forced into the shape that it holds. The rough material is hewn into a game of lines and rigid movement. However, on a closer perspective these lines seem to begin to move. Hour after hour the shape is chopped, chiseled and polished by hand to bring the shape to perfection. Rini van Dam creates sculptures that need to be viewed from every possible angle to be able to fully register the shapes, to have them speak to you by their contained beauty.
 

van de Kamp, Harold

Netherlands

Photography

One of the things that inspires me is travelling. The best thing about travelling is knowing that whatever will be visible in the next 5 minutes is an image that I have never seen before (and probably never will see again). In this situation of contstant changing surroundings, with people running around, I like to  shoot pictures of places that seem deserterd, but leave a trace of human activity.
 

van der Meer, Marianne

Netherlands

Painting

The paintings and painted objects of Marianne are characterized by the colorful richness. She paints from the heart. Her work is described as lyrical and stimulates the viewer's own imagination. Her paintings are signed under the name Marfel. Her work is part of private collections both in the Netherlands and abroad and it has been exhibited in several art shows, nationally and internationally.
 

van Rijssel, Evert

Netherlands

Sculpture

In my sculptures people are the central focus. Anatomical proportions and humour are important. I try to tell a complete story with minimal means, looking for anatomical accuracy while retaining spontaneity. If necessary, I do not hesitate to utilise slightly caricatural elements. Most of the sculptures are highly figurative but some incline to abstraction.
 

von Funck, Diemut

Germany

Photography

Diemut von Funck's pictures are taken while traveling – with the help of speed she captures her impressions in motion. Imaginativeness and abstraction turn out to be worthwhile, and the result of the transformation is aesthetic gain. The conscious shape of the square gives the whole a moment of silence and thus also a meditative character. Diemut regularly exhibits in galleries in Munich and in Berlin.
 

Wallace, Steffie

Australia

Painting

I live in Melbourne, Australia, where I studied Fine Art. The sky has always been the source of my spiritual inspiration as well as providing my artistic motivation, and it dominates my work. In my painted skies there is always light emerging from the darkness; a metaphor for life’s journey. Much of life is mysterious; similarly, my documented ‘weather journeys’ are often shrouded in dust, mist, fog and rain, with storms frequently providing a central theme. The ancient Australian landscape provides me with profound inspiration beyond observation, and I work with a mainly subdued, restricted palette, using acrylic media.
 

Wijnand-Vranken, Jolanda

Netherlands

Painting

Jolanda is known for her expressive paintings with beautiful colour combinations. Her typical style combines strong brush strokes with delicate transparent surfaces and playful lines. Model drawings are a continuing source of inspiration for her work.
 

Zakrynycny, Viktor

Czech Republic

Painting

The colour adds to his paintings the character and the atmosphere. He creates light more than imitates it. Thick and vivid colours so dynamic whilst close to the sharpness of a blade. Delicate shades are composed into fragile areas filled by light and their soft shivering quality suggest a wide sense of space.
 

Zurbuchen, Arlette

Switzerland

Painting

 

The arguments of daily life and world news are at the centre of my acrylic painting work. I would like that art takes place in life and life in the arts. Art can connect cultures, which I believe is really important today. My paintings are made with pencil on canvas. I‘m fascinated by human beings' contradictions - perhaps because I‘m also working as theatre director. The reflections of my experience of mankind let me find surrealistic, naturalistic and humoristic depictions.
