The arworks by Sibylle Jazra are pervaded with references of art history. Sometimes in an ironic way, other times, subtly disturbed. The versatile artist plays with artistic references with a sharp but, at the same time, light humoristic tone that is not directly disrupt by iconographical burdens.
Graeme Turnbull, aka Stendec, is a Scottish Artist, who has made London his home. He grew up in Glasgow where his appetite for art was spurred on by the UK’s creative urban culture. He balances his time between working on high end commercial vfx projects where he creates stunning 3D imagery and his more primal hand drawn art, which is often limited to a basic palette of line and tone. Stendec’s paintings incorporate elements from his visual effects background, among a myriad of other influences including architecture, form geometry, negative space and street culture. He strives to create original work that does not conform to the standards of traditional street art, by deconstructing architecture and toying with the building and breaking of perspective he creates geometrical paintings characterized with unpredictability and controlled chaos.
How do memory and reality coalesce when it comes to painting and the portraiture of subjects? Through a convoluted imaginary, effervescent with symbolism, Ivana Flores inhabits in her work different fields of simultaneous experience: Reality, dream, everyday life and imagination merge at a turning point of boundless consciousness of self-image and world. Under a singular theme –the inner reality of things, whimsical forms travel back and forth between solid representation and more primary aspects of the human experience, liberating the sensorial and the visible from opaque abstractions and locating vulnerability.
