Forewards Curator’s choice Index Selected Artists Guest Artists Focus Art Projects ART KOREA To Watch


Welcome from the Meliá White House

Director’s foreward When we started the Artrooms fair, 3 years ago, we wanted to create an event that put artists back at the heart of the international scene. The idea was to give them an opportunity to showcase their work and grant them access to the market. However, we where aware that we needed an extra factor, something beyond the conventional white cube exhibition space. We wanted to turn a journey into the art market into an unforgettable experience.

Welcome to our “ARTROOMS” Fair. This is the third year I have had the great pleasure of hosting this magnificent event at the Melia White House. Not only does it give visibility and opportunity to international, young, talented artists, but it also brings an air of culture and art to our grand Hotel, already steeped in rich history itself. I am delighted to be able to share this event with our guests and I hope it is an enjoyable and memorable experience for you. With my very best wishes.

Gioele Camarlinghi General Manager – Hotel Melia White House UK Area Director – Melia Hotels International

Exhibiting in an hotel room can be challenging, but it’s because of its peculiarity that artists are invited to be even more creative and show their full potential. On the other hand, visitors have the unique chance to meet the person behind the work in a very intimate dimension. Artrooms is a catalyst to attract contemporary art collectors and dealers. A hub, where the most talented and independent artists from all over the world are invited to exhibit after passing a ferocious selection. This 3 Edition will host 70 out of 800 artists who have applied. Thanks to our prestigious and generous Selection Committee, we are able to present a fair which truly reflects global trends. All the artists you will meet in ARTROOMS 2017, are independent and not necessarily emerging. Some of them are young, others aren’t. The majority has been already awarded and gaining popularity in their country of origin. They all share a common factor: they are not exclusively represented by a gallery in the UK. The fair is a marvellous hunting ground. We want galleries, art dealers and agents to come and scout for talented artists, test them on the market and grab the opportunity to be the first to work with our artists. In Artrooms 2017 you will meet 70 artists from 35 countries across Europe, Canada, USA, South America, Middle and Far East. They will present works of art from all media including video and installations. We truly hope you will enjoy the fair. Cristina Cellini Antonini Director Francesco Fanelli Director Chiara Canal Deputy Director


CURATOR’S CHOICE


Are we Humans? Reflections on invisible and imaginary cities by Alice Tegazi The countries from which the artists of the Far East Section come (Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Thailand, Mongolia, Iran) have faced significant political, social and cultural changes over the Twentieth century that strongly transformed people lives and consequently affected researches of the artists themselves. Technology progresses, mass media development, massive population growth have only been a few elements that have determined - as progressive as inevitable - transformation of entire areas, cities, neighbourhood. Each country has answered to all these changes providing people with specific and peculiar solutions, however Taro Karibe, Hitomi Kammai, Jake the Dog, Tsz Lan, Jade Chorkulab, Otgonbayar Tsogt and Sara Parsaee have all investigated the relationship among human being and fictional/actual places, exploring the subtle interstice that exists on the edges between them. Far East artists have been witnessing stunning phenomenons, which have brought each artist to react accordingly. Starting point of their researches have been influenced by several circumstances (connection with spirituality, relationship between art and anthropology, academic backgrounds) and each artist has questioned the deep meaning of the places where we are living and how human being has played a significant role into their continuous transformation. Are the cities a result of inhumanity? How are we still surviving to the cruel process of human devastation?

“The inferno of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space.” Invisible cities, a novel by Italian writer Italo Calvino published in 1972, offers an intriguing solution to analyse our everyday Inferno – solution that has been fully embraced by Taro Karibe, Hitomi Kammai and Jake the Dog researches. In fact, Karibe’s photographies, Kammai’s sculptural paintings, Jake’s canvases show significant connections with Calvino’s reflection. Taro Karibe, whose approach has deeply rooted into Psychology studies, analyses human lost identity in connection with Tokyo, his home-city. His provocative pictures show how Japanese people (and places) have accepted the stranger feeling of solitude that they have been facing day by day. Colourful advertising – here transposed in monochrome pictures – and oppressing mass media enchant bewitching the metropolis, diverting from its real issue: the loneliness of the individual and the acceptance of being a number among the others – not a person. The metropolis has accepted its Inferno and no longer see(s) it. A more abstract and spiritual perspective has presented by another Japanese artist, Hitomi Kammai. Her analysis of the Inferno interconnects nature and artificial objects and the Crater Paintings are the result of viewing a new possible world. Differently from Karibe’s approach, Hitomi reflects on the destructive consequences caused by human brutality and how life is an alternation of lights and shadows. Through her sculptural paintings, she has physically shaped this succession, influenced by Buddhist philosophy where everything is linked and connected. The influence of the Abstract Expressionism and Jackson Pollock’s dripping technique culminate into dynamism of a new creation, resembling moon craters caused by regularly meteorites bombing. Korean artist Hun Kyu Kim (Jake the Dog) has deeply questioned our Inferno analysing contemporary forms of barbarism. Despite using bright colours, his paintings reveal destruction and cruelty, showing the most brutal side of human being. The representation of the pigs is highly controversial: pigs are traditionally a Korean symbol of wealth and prosperity but in Jake the Dog’s paintings they represent the human being carelessness and greed. Closing eyes, mouths and ears get them live freely from sense of guilty, guilty originated from brutality and atrocity. In The birth of nation a multitude of skulls is piled: each of them has tattooed with a different kind of flower, plant or leave. Jake the Dog shows in this painting the destruction of the nature, rather than the death of warriors that fight for their nation. In his paintings, he investigates how the massive technology developments has been destroying our environment, always more polluted and corrupted, leading to a paradoxical human involution. His representation of cruel reality has been mediated by the sapient use of fables and cartoons, through which he is able to hide miserable and terrifying subjects such as oppression and violence and to not confront the power (the government) directly. Jake the Dog is a contemporary Juvenal that actually escapes the Inferno through his sense of humour showing a new possible world: the colourful canvases promote joy and hope to fight against the barbarism. Partially connected with Jake the Dog’s vision of a new possible world, Tsz Lan researches the sense of human life into imaginary cities which transposed the muddled real ones. “Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.” Following Marco Polo’s assertion in Invisible cities, she represents the vibrant life in Hong Kong as a surreal city that shows its controversial side. The skyline is unrecognisable, the

figures (humans, animals, vegetables) are mostly absurd, floating in a blurry atmosphere. In Speak no sound series Tsz Lan is a storyteller that denounces the paradox of living in a place like Hong Kong: Breathe is a provocative work that openly condemns the dangerous level of pollution existing in the city. Her ten-year experience into film production company and interests in movies have influenced Tsz Lan artistic approach: Rose and Blanca are metaphorical underwater paintings that show the strict co-dependency between human and nature. The presence of blooming flowers represents the charming side of art that will always be connected with its social attempt of denunciation. As stills of a movie, both paintings reflect the inevitable process of humannature interrelation that exist also in a metropolis like Hong Kong.

“Arriving at each new city, the traveller finds again a past of his that he did not know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places.” Jade Chorkularb, Otgonbayar Tsogt and Sara Parsaee have been experiencing the living in a totally different reality from their home-city. Transposing Marco Polo’s statement in Invisible cities, this factor has been inevitably reflected into the whole body of work of these artists. The relationship with traditions, forms and techniques inherited from their countries have been tracked throughout artists’ paintings, sculptures and installations, combined with continuous connections with their new homes. Jade Chorkularb, born in Thailand and London-based since 1996, embodies this dialectic approach and defines questioning identity as starting point of her research. Deeply influenced by Anatta doctrine of “no self”, she investigates East-West profound relationships, adopting techniques and materials that belong to Western cultures and melding elements that belong to Buddhism. Kilesa is the epitome of these connections: the use of the Pali word Kilesa (“defilement”) reveals Chorkularb’s research as interpretation of life through Buddhist vision. The perspex, transparent and pure, is metaphor for human mind (fundamentally uncontaminated), corrupted by different tangled defilements (desire, anger, delusion) that are struggling to perform on behalf of human thoughts and acts. The use of simple media (paper) and the combination on the support (perspex) suggest influences of European Avant-garde, Arte Povera and Nouveau Réalisme, signal of a strong bond with Western art. Connected with Chorkularb’s approach, Otgonbayar Tsogt has investigated challenges of Eastern-Western boundaries integrating them with Mongolian shamanism (Tengerism) that has inspired his latest works. Following Tengerism philosophy, Tsogt have found the meaning of human life in living in harmony with the universe; the colourful planets represented are interconnected and suspended onto the canvas in a delicate balance. The ritualism of the alternation of day and night, seasons and the relationship between life and death suggest the artist to visually represent those principles into an imaginary universe, managed by the circular motion. Exploring deeply the sense of these movements, Tsogt have felt the need to go beyond the twodimensional support of the canvas where the motion is slightly perceived and to ennoble it through three-dimensional objects where the motion has finally acquired its own independence. Western influences could be traced through the use of horizontal stripes on the background and rigorous geometries that reveal a symmetry with the French poet and artist Daniel Buren. In Sara Parsaee’s research – Iranian artist moved to Malaysia in 2009 – the heritage of her Iranian roots has been showed through techniques and subjects used for her works. Seeking for the spirit of things, she has represented elements of the Islamic world with a wide range of materials (sands, stones, cotton). Using bright colours, light and glitters she has clearly contrasted the conservative beliefs and forms of Islamic culture spreading a sense of joy in most of their artworks. However, beyond the kaleidoscopic vertigo of colours, the representation of Nazar (Eye of Devil) and the Peacock lead to controversial interpretations: the Nazar embodies the talisman to push away corruption and negativity from humans; the peacock symbolizes the ambiguous connection between beauty and vanity and how the power of this relationship can be potentially dangerous.The influences of traditional elements lie onto the use of combination of sand and stone: Byzantine mosaics and Persian miniatures could be brought to light by observing Parsaee’s works. Moving forward, looking back to the past. The relationship with tradition has played a significant role in each artistic research: not only Jade Chorkularb, Otgonbayar Tsogt and Sara Parsaee who are actually experiencing the physical distance from their country, but also Taro Karibe, Hitomi Kammai and Jake the Dog have connected their artistic expression with traditional elements. A consistent part of Karibe’s photographies is printed on Japanese rice paper; Kammai’s sculptural canvases, even if profoundly influenced by Abstract Expressionism, have been painted using a Japanese pigment and Jake the Dog’s paintings are coloured on silk with traditional oriental pigments, obtained from natural resources, a technique used for the ancient religious painting in Asia. Wherever the artist has been, techniques, myths, forms of their home-country have directly or indirectly influenced his/her own philosophy and conscience. Through their entire artistic journey a significant part of their research has referred (and will be referring) to their own roots and cities - as Marco Polo remarks describing his beloved Venice in Invisible cities:

“Every time I describe a city I am saying something about Venice. Memory’s images, once they are fixed in words, are erased. Perhaps I am afraid of losing Venice all at once, if I speak of it. Or, perhaps, speaking of other cities, I have already lost it, little by little.” Alice Tegazi


True colours Individual as colour pigment in Moureaux research I have a fascination with rituals. Rituals create a sense of order in my existence. The fascination that France has with Japan has historically rooted in the nineteenth century. Ukiyo-e (浮世絵) genre (literally meaning “floating world”) - that was formally introduced during the World’s Fair in Paris in 1867 – deeply impressed French impressionist painters, depicting landscapes and scenes of the lively and colourful culture arisen in the urban centres of the main cities (Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto). Japanese subjects of everyday life and Impressionist studying of the light were transposed on canvases, resulting into bright paintings realized through juxtaposed technique.

Mystery is the essence of my being. Autism brings its own beauty for I am not bound by constraints of time and order. I inhabit a world of chaos, a world where the outcome is no more relevant than the beginning. The most sacred of my rituals involve water. Immersing myself I return to primordial memories. In the Tao, feng shui, elements of wind and water create the basis of all harmony.

Thrown into twentieth century, Emmanuelle Moureaux, differently from Impressionist painters, personally experienced that “lively and colourful culture” during a University study-trip in Tokyo. Tokyo lights and colours have turned out to be her epiphany: fluorescent billboards, multicoloured signals and the overall brightness of the city amazed the artist that, falling in love with the Japanese capital, instantly decided to move there from Paris.

Water has no bones and cannot be broken or contained ... always in movement.

Her research, as a contemporary Impressionist, is focused on the decomposition of the colours and on capturing the fleeting effects of lights. Partially influenced by Eugene Chevreul’s scientific research into colour theory, Emmanuelle Moureaux observes the reality sectioning every layer through her architectural eye. The combination of the study of colours and separated layers is synthesized into her Shikiri theory made-up world that means “dividing and creating space through colours”.

I surrender to the water.

I am here embodies her principle reflecting on the complexity of the relationship between space and colours. The paper-installation takes possession of the space without actually occupying it: the lightness of the material and the chromatic succession disseminate a deep sense of balance and joy. What impresses at the first glance is the power of colour itself: no shapes, no figures, just the total-enthralling intensity of colours. The installation silhouette – that reminds the massive Tokyo skyscraper – reacts to the apparent fragility of the media through the respondent chromatic effect. In fact, the artist breaks the colour wheel into two segments, flatting on a unique layer, ennobling the entire colours palette and increasing the brightness. However I am here diverges from the entire body of work of the artist as she introduces the human figure for the first time. Combining hundreds of human silhouettes, Emmanuelle Moureaux reflects on the overcrowded contemporary society leading to a double interpretation: placing side by side each layer with a specific colour, she admits the inevitable process of depersonalization that Tokyo as a metropolis has been experiencing. Time after time, people turn into a repeating number into the hectic and vibrant life of the Japanese capital. At the same time, using a palette of 100 colours, the overall luminosity of the installation is related with the presence of each figure and openly contrasts the society-system carelessness. Each individual lights up its own light but, all together, they light up the world, bringing a sense of diffused hope and joy. Just like the pigment of colour that double its luminosity due to the proximity with its own complementary. Alice Tegazi

My paintings are a record of a brief life when the water, paper, color and I engage in a ritualistic dance. I do not seek to control the rain. The paper comes to life. Moving, pigments separating and blending. No time to think for like the calligrapher I am not a writer of words. The colors have their own language. For a moment we are one entity where the outcome is random....beyond explanation. When the ritual is finished the paper becomes a relic of the moment. Stevens Vaughn “A painting is not a picture of an experience, it is an experience.” We could draw on this thought by Mark Rothko to describe Stevens Vaughn’s work, which conveys the meaning of a visual essentiality, only apparently confusing, but structurally associated with an ironic and colorful view, expressing with its irrepressible sign a misleading gestural line, guided by a manual drive that is full of emotional and cultural expressionism that belongs in a sound reality. The structure or, better still, the ‘ritualism’ of each work is composed as the expression of a non-verbal thought, transformed into an articulated structure based on the revelation of reality, where a stylistic exercise capable of turning desire into the irony of creativity joins a deferred dilation of time and space. Patches, rapid straining and chromatic hauteurs contain the definition of space, contending against nature and poetry for the search of formal solutions for their work, which end up in a disturbing use of such a primary element as water.

DREAMS ARE ONLY DREAMS by Maria Carla Auteri

In the three-act drama written in 1635 by Pedro Calderón de La Barca,“Life is a dream”, the question is whether what we interact with in real life - the object, the action, the event - is in truth the result of a dream, because it is much more like the reality that places the living man in confusion, who dreams until he is rousing.

Massimo Scaringella

If all life is a dream, Art helps to make us dream away the sad moment of awakening. The artists selected for the 2017 edition of Artrooms suspend us within this state of mind, making us dream of ideal worlds, which can be experienced only in the illusion of a Nature so alive and fluctuating as the ceramic works of Delfina Emmanuel. Sea sponges, anemones, corals and rocks are crystallized in a marine realm imprinted in the memory of the artist since the time of childhood. The artist becomes a child again, transported to a time when to dream still meant to create, as in the entomological micro-installations by Alice Padovani, in which the artist/magpie collects small things of beauty, created by chance or accident, and frames them, reveals them to the world, jealously keeping their secret. The candid aura of childhood destabilizes with maturity, it takes a form both restless and obscure, so “Dark Pool”,the multifaceted work of Collettivo Instabile, the creative duo composed by Gianni Mazzesi and Maria Giovanna Morelli, brings us back to the present state, not yet clear but deformed and therefore disturbing. The installation work of Eleonora Oleotto, by using therapeutic photography, relieves pain caused by trauma covering the environment around the works with a “gauze-like” fabric. The wound has been treated, everything can be overcome and one can keep walking the path. In“Untitled with person”, Gianluca Capozzi plays on the Illusionism style, form is more realistic as far as it is positioned from reality. We are still dreaming, there are lights, buildings, inhabitants of a city that never existed, but that we all remember. The state of mind is now a livable reality in the virtual sphere, an augmented reality experience, and it is with the use of technology that artists Guido Salimbeni and Julius Giustini create their own paintings, creating a story about the story. Dario Moschetta relies on the traditional technique of oil on canvas, but spreading the color in a “dirty” and uneven way. Visionary artists, dreamers with different artistic experiences are intertwined so, in the rooms of the Meliá White Hotel. After all, at the end of the dream, we always find ourselves inside a bedroom. Maria Carla Auteri

OMAR HASSAN In just a short time ARTROOMS has established a reputation for discovering exciting new artistic talent. So, I was honoured and thrilled to be asked to be one of the member of the Selection Committee for the third Edition of the annual fair. What a truly eye-opening time I had, choosing works from a wonderfully wide range of artists from more than 35 countries and different disciplines. Paintings, installations, photography sculpture, drawings and digital art. I was in a culture candy shop, and could not wait to see what the next artist would display and tell me about their work, fascinated to discover and what makes them tick. More than 70 artists were finally selected from around 800 entries. Added to these were 10 artists who were invited to show. As part of the Selection Committee with such illustrious co-members, it was a pleasure and revelation to judge such high quality work. I know that everyone who visits ARTROOMS this year will be thoroughly absorbed, discovering unexpected gems in the unique setting of the Meliรก White House. ARTROOMS 2017, kick-starts the art year, celebrating all that London art world has to offer and is the gateway to international exchange. The non-traditional setting of the Meliรก White House guest rooms offer a special opportunity to meet the exhibitors face-to-face, in an intimate environment. I know that visitors will come away uplifted - maybe with artworks by new talent or established artists - and certainly with fresh ideas, inspiration and creative energy for 2017.

AWARDS: 2014 MayApple Centre for the Arts and Humanities; full scholarship residency, Stamford, Connecticut, USA

Ilsa is a British artist. She completed her MFA at the New York Academy of Art in 2014 and is now living in the UK. Her exhibition with Art Rooms 2017 presents a series of small intimate paintings: ‘Portraits That Are Not Portraits.’ Her interest in philosophy, psychology and the source of motivations, provide the inspiration for her work. In particular, how individual perception plays a significant factor in the interpretation of a situation. The figure viewed as half present or half absent, the feeling of being trapped or protected, free or exposed, included or isolated. In this series of paintings Ilsa presents portraits in varying degrees of realism and conceptualism, where physical space is replaced with mental space. Ambiguity is an important aspect of the work where conflicting interpretations can exist simultaneously and are determined by personal outlook. Textural qualities add an additional level of meaning or analogy. Throughout the series, notions of privacy, absence, age and time are touched upon. Ilsa exhibited most recently with Flowers Gallery in New York, Lacey Contemporary Gallery in London, and Mall Galleries in London, and has sold work to several collectors around the world.

Gianluca was born in 1973 and, after graduating from the Academy of Fine Art in Florence, resides in Italy in the town of Avellino. Gianluca furthered his studies on Hyperrealism at the Faculty of Fine Art in Granada for a year. During this period, his journey in the painting world began. At first it was a dreamlike and internal sight then he was influenced by the esoteric and ancient world too. His poetics focus on Consciousness and Knowledge and, according to him “Art can impart them more than anything else.”Deriving from his pictures and his divisionist approach, he realises the hyperrealist aspect of his paintings. He achieved a Masters’ at the Florence Academy of Fine Arts, Italy in 1997 after a scholarship at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Granada, Spain.1992 Graduate, P.A.De Luca Fine Arts Institute, AV, Italy.

AWARDS: 2016 The Jerwood Drawing Prize (Student Award), London, UK 2015 Winner of the Drawing Prize at the Art Academy, London, UK

Jade Chorkularb was born in Thailand in 1971, coming to London from Bangkok in 1996. She originally graduated in computer science (and also holds an MSc in Interactive Multimedia) before establishing herself as a conceptual artist. Her works are a reflection of her belief in Buddhism, particularly Anatta meditation (the practice of no self) and she uses diverse media such as painting, sculpture, video, performance and installation. Her art describes the way she views life and the way that she interprets the meaning of life. She likes to explore the human condition and then to try to find explanations through the process of creating art, which must, ultimately, be thought-provoking. Her pieces have been exhibited around the world from Berlin to Bogota and she was recently awarded one of the two student prizes in this year’s Jerwood Drawing Prize.

Šárka is a Czech born, artist and designer whose multimedia practice explores the relationship in between people, places and architecture in relation to the ever-changing time and space that we occupy. Constantly seeking new ways of making and showing her work, Šárka aims for her art to create space rather than simply occupy it; always inviting viewers to interact and engage in a playful “dialogue” of their own thoughts. Šárka was classically trained at international art schools across Europe. Initially studying stone cutting and engraving at SUPŠ Turnov, Czech Republic where she has won an academic scholarship to Dresden school of Art and Design, Germany, before settling down in the UK completing her study in fashion and jewelry design. In 2015 she obtained MFA (Master of Fine Art) and PG dip in painting and drawing from University of Sussex.

I use photography and multi-disciplinary techniques from painting to collage to create cinematic paintings reminiscent of early colonial coastal cartographic surveys. Based in Melbourne, I worked as an artist and arts educator in China, Egypt, Australia, and the United States and exhibited internationally in Shanghai, London, Melbourne and Dubai. I am drawn to make art from objects, stories, statements, news articles and people I encounter. I am interested in the beauty and hidden story in objects we discard and pass by...I hope I express the importance of small encounters. The Creative Mapping Project described my work as such: His poetic landscapes drip with imagery that unfolds in a swirl of memories and fragmented conversations pieced together by visual scraps- those discarded and found again from old newspapers to travel postcards and brochures – oil paints, India inks, dried paints and small objects. From a distance, Robert’s work appears like a painting, but on closer inspection, it manifests as a lyrically multi-layered narrative; stories of travel, time, and memories played out through his unique and intricate craft. “The new set of artworks presented at Art Rooms 2017 are from my Urban Dreams series created during my residency at the American School in London.

Mache del Campo Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 16 /11/ 1967 Country: Argentina Residence: Argentina Media: Photography Price range: £ 400 - £ 3,250

AWARDS: 2016 Winner of the London Photo Festival, London, UK 2015 Story Telling Awards by Lens Culture

My photographic training spans several schools of photography and workshops. I have participated in many photo exhibitions in Argentina, Uruguay, and USA. Photography allows me to take a moment and create a mysterious and individual story, one that intentionally excludes reality leaving open an infinite number of possible interpretations. My intention is to transport the viewer’s mind outside the world of the rational and measurable, outside space and time and is, as well, an exciting and intriguing escape for me. It is my hope that this will generate thoughts, ideas, fantasies, and fiction including experiences that are yet to be lived. Portrait photography is another one of my passions, and I especially enjoy it during my travels. I fall in love with some locations for its beautiful scenery and fascinating architecture, others for the genuineness and beauty of its people, and some for both. It allows me to meet and interact with people from a variety of cultures and languages. I can connect with anyone in a much deeper way, obviating the need for any language. Through these experiences I have gained great respect for the people from all cultures that I have had the privilege to experience and have been inspired by and have learned much from them.

AWARDS: 2016 Craft Emergency, Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth, UK

Tessa Eastman is a British ceramic artist who has twenty years of experience of working with clay. She lives in London and works in Studio Manifold with a group of artists and designers who founded the studio in 2010. She worked as an assistant to renowned ceramicist Kate Malone, who recently featured in The Great British Pottery Throw Down TV series. Tessa has just won the Craft Emergency prize at Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth and is working towards an exhibition with Puls Gallery in Brussels in March 2017. She has produced a fresh body of work that grew out of her MA at the Royal College of Art in 2015. These original pieces demonstrate her ongoing commitment to the challenge of hand building in clay. The often overlooked detail of microscopic structures is observed as a starting point to developing works which possess a curious ambiguity. Time is devoted to glaze testing and research. Equally through use of rich glaze surface and three dimensions, pieces develop depth of character.

AWARDS: 2013 Prosper Award, Canterbury Festival for White Horses Whitstable 2012 NOAC 2010 Shortlisted for Art and Escape Award 2004 English Nature Bursary

Initially, Tracey made newspaper work in response to the Gulf War, however, after discovering the versatility of paper, Tracey has remained fascinated by the medium. 2008 saw three newspaper ‘tree trunks’ made for Folkestone Triennial Fringe set fire to by vandals, resulting in Tracey experimenting to draw with fire onto newspaper. Now some of her works are drawn on with a blowtorch. Newspaper comes from wood and is turned back to a wood-like product through the tree trunks and ‘prosthetic limbs’ Tracey makes; charcoal, that traditional drawing material comes from burning wood. Rather than drawing with charcoal, Tracey is making charcoal through drawing. Cycles of life and nature. Drawn from nature, newspaper is then drawn back into nature and some is drawn on by nature. Stories both from the trees they come from and the human world are branded onto the newspaper. As the rings on the trees offer information on the land over time, the pages of the newspaper are steeped in human history. Information, truth, opinion, fact, lies, propaganda; fed through the thin pages for all to contribute to and all to feed on. History – the writing on the wall.

Ferri Farahmandi Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 04/02/1950 Country: Iran Residence: UK Media: Sculpture Price range: £ 210 - £ 1,400

AWARDS: 2013 Passion for freedom, 2nd freedom Award

Born in 1950 in Bandar Abbas, Iran, Ferri Farahmandi studied BA Ceramics at The University of Westminster, in London where she also lives. In her current work which is predominantly sculpture, she is examining how society restricts our lives, demonstrating the boundaries to our freedom. She is exploring this theory through the female form which she feels allows for greater communication of both emotional and physical nuances. Using stoneware, earthenware and porcelain clay, Ferri hand builds her sculptures and they are finished by burnishing and smoke firing. Some of the group exhibitions Ferri has taken part in, include Cecilia Colman Gallery, London; Capulet Gallery Chiswick, London; The Mall Galleries, London; The Sculpture Park, Surrey, UK; Montague Gallery, Kings Langley, UK; Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden, Surrey, UK and the Orangery Gallery, London. Ferri was also invited to show her work at The Landscape Show at Olympia in London. As well as her work being featured in prestigious publications such as, TerrArt, Ceramics Art and Perception, Hand Made in Britain and Ceramic Review, Ferri’s work has also earned her a 2nd place Freedom Award at the Passion for Freedom Festival.

Self-taught painter currently working and living in Paris. He grew up between Paris and Rome and has been nourished with both contemporary and classical art. He is attracted by the process of mixing contradictory influences resulting in an undefined universality, beyond self identity. He uses mixed techniques on canvas: oil, acrylic, spray, collage, brush, fingers and papers. What he enjoys most about painting is the infinity of expression constricted within a frame as a window or a mirror. He is looking for the right error, the incident which reveals the beauty of mistake which makes you go in the free direction. He works on instinctive compositions and his purpose is to reach a balance of dissonance. He often gets lost in the middle of a painting, getting out of the maze takes time and perseverance until the painting eventually stands alone by itself. Painting is without a doubt a mental and physical travel across abstracts feelings waiting, wanting to be discovered.

Benjamin Golding Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 03/07/1994 Country: UK Residence: UK Media: Installations Price range: £ 150 - £ 700

Benjamin Golding is a recent Fine Art graduate of Loughborough University; living and working in Burton-on-Trent. His practice encompasses both watercolour and biro drawings, as well as large scale cardboard sculptures. By utilising a combination of detailed lines, dense layers and evocative colours the artist aims to produce pieces which offer the audience a visual journey through the artwork. Representational of nothing, interpretable as anything; his creations provide a unique experience for all who view them. However for Benjamin personally the pieces he creates act as visual diaries. Each shard placed or line drawn signifies a moment in time, simultaneously distinct and indivisible, a unique event in its own right but equally; just a fraction of a much larger narrative. Thus the artworks feel like photographs and in a larger way, like scrap books; monuments to the memories one can never remember.

Matt Greenwood Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 08/12/1991 Country: UK Residence: UK Media: Installations Price range: £ 200 - £ 540

Matt Greenwood’s main interests focus around sculpture and photography, and in particular, the conversation that arises when we perceive the photograph as a physical object, which could become manipulated further to alter our perception of the printed image. He uses the studio environment to assist in the record of his sculptures, by allowing the physical constructs to be witnessed only through this particular documentation.This disruption of viewing a sculpture renders each image a visual record of the event, questioning if the final photograph is the concluding artwork; or is the object seen within the image the main art construct. The photograph is able to alter our ordinary experiences of how we could approach a sculpture within a space, allowing the relationship between the surface and structure to become less predictable. Matt Greenwood was born Lincolnshire, England in 1991. After working as Photography Technician for three years, Matt began studying BA Hons Photography at Falmouth University, Cornwall, where he is due to graduate in July 2017. His work has been exhibited throughout various galleries across the UK, including London and Falmouth. Matt has also assisted various artists across the UK, including interning as a Studio Assistant for Nadav Kander. MAIN PUBLICATIONS: 2016 The Plantation Journal.

Originally from Lubbock, Texas, Teri has been exploring the backroads of the American dream with her camera for the past thirty years. Recurring themes in her work include individuality, isolation, and the enduring self-sufficiency of people and places that are often left behind. Her photography is a study – and ultimately a celebration – of cultural and geographic desolation. Although her subjects frequently stand solitary and disconnected, in their autonomy there is extraordinary strength, and through her photographs they remain indelible, as beacons of resistance and luminous symbols of cultural dissent. After studying photojournalism at the University of Texas and serving as an intern at the Magnum photo agency in New York, Teri developed her printmaking skills by improvising darkrooms in kitchens and motel rooms across the country (while working as an itinerant bartender /cocktail waitress). Teri currently lives in rural Colorado with her husband Mike. When not lost in the backcountry, or in her darkroom producing palladium prints, she can be found in her beloved ’88 Ford Van on the track of the perfect roadside bar.

Brian Huber Category: Selected Artist/To Watch D.O.B. 09/05/1960 Country: USA Residence: USA Media: Paintings Price range: £ 700 - £ 4,600

AWARDS: 2016 ARTSPAN, San Francisco Open Studios, San Francisco, CA USA “Artist Not to Miss”

Brian’s work is based on the abstraction of landscapes, architectural elements and the impact of man on the natural world. Raised in New Orleans, Brian was influenced not only by an unconstrained culture and the rhythmic motions of blues and jazz, but also an environment where hurricanes could change or destroy everything. Brian transforms landscapes and manmade forms into something new. His pieces represent physical changes on a grand scale —anything from the construction of a beautiful building to the devastation of a man-made disaster. Brian cuts and manipulates giant sheets of acrylic paint to create the distinctively sculptural texture of his pieces. The constant change of light and shadow alters the color and pattern of his creations, breathing life into them. In the series, Follow the Line, he explores what lives on either side of the imagined lines we concoct for ourselves. The Veil series introduced a discussion about how the hidden veil we all wear distorts our views and the way we consume reality. This discussion continues in the Circle Back series, which plays with light and shadow on ironwork found in New Orleans. An abstracted interpretation of the braided rivers and glacial moraines of the Denali Alaska landscape is the focus of Braided.

Gillian Hyland creates supernatural staged images, presented as film stills or dramatic moments. Hyland’s unsettling mise-en-scene are full of sex and desire, sadness and nostalgia. Narratives that are psychologically evocative - at once sublimely theatrical yet poignant. Hyland describes herself as an image maker and story teller. Her dramatic photographs are based on her own poems, and depict characters in human dramas and isolated emotional situations. Frozen in time, solitary and vulnerable moments are presented in glorious technicolor and timeless sets. Hyland’s visual career began as a stylist and set designer. Highly successful, the move to photography was a natural progression in wanting to create her own imagery. Encapsulating her memories and emotions in poems she then transforms these into images, offering a new perspective. The imagery plays with our notions of nostalgia, and taps into society’s cultural understanding of feelings and beliefs. The composition of each image suggests a larger narrative within a single moment. “It’s not about creating a pretty picture, for me it’s the intention that lies beneath it that is truly worthwhile. I’m drawn to the thinking mind behind the face, the subject’s eyes holding a story in their gaze.” FAIRS: 2016 2016 2016 2016 2016 2016 2015 2015 2015 2015

Angel iliev Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 15/04/1968 Country: Bulgaria Residence: UK Media: Paintings Price range: £ 200 - £ 3,500

Angel Iliev was born on April 15, 1968, in Sofia, Bulgaria, now lives in London. He works in the realm of painting. “What I would like to show in my art is the air we cannot see but still exists. I don’t want to follow the actual approaches in presenting art. I prefer to be myself enough and to show everything that I feel.” Art Link presented his works as part of the SOTHEBYS online auction in March 2001 and July 2001. Some of them have also been shown in Saatchi Online Gallery. His canvases can be seen in Peacock Fine Art Gallery, 65 Westow Street, London SE 19 3RW.

AWARDS: 2016 The first Showcase winner of Artslant 2016 The Second Showcase winner of Artslant 2016 Contemporary British Artist Long listed 2016 Runners up of HIX award in CNB gallery 2014 “Most memorable Artist” prize in graduation show in Seoul National University 2009 Winner in Oriental painting section from Korea National Fine Art competition

Born in Seoul on 1st Sept 1986, Jake the Dog (aka Hun Kyu Kim) studied Oriental painting and Aesthetics in Seoul National University. After graduation, he studies painting in Royal College of Art in London where he currently lives. As a painter, he works using oriental traditional painting skill, especially silk coloring, used for ancient Asian religious paintings. He tries to develop the traditional medium in the context of contemporary art. Despite of adorable and cartoon like images, his works parody historical events, especially tragedies, based on political philosophy. Through this artistic practice, he tries to protest against the power, raising controversial discussion. He defines his artistic practice as ‘Sweet Protest’ because he represents his ideas and political propaganda via beautiful and subtle images. He has taken part to several group exhibitions in both countries, South Korea and The UK. He has a few group exhibitions in 2017 and is also preparing a solo exhibition after his current academic years in Royal College of Art. His works are mainly acquired by private collectors such as Stephen Webster, British jewelry designer. You can find more information of his work, Just type ‘Jake the dog artist talk in Royal College of Art’ on Youtube.

Ulla Karttunen is a Finland-based multidisciplinary artist, who has focused on ’digital icons’ and other digitally and manually manipulated images and installations, but has also made critical interventions, performances, and conceptual projects. She uses banal materials like media junk or toilet paper to construct portraits of unlikely saints or to depict blind spots of society. Karttunen has exhibited recently in Florence, Los Angeles, Algiers, Helsinki, Berlin, Porvoo, Leipzig, Joensuu, and Ljubljana. She is interested in questions concerning art and society – power relations, censorship, gender – and has recently given lectures at conferences in Seoul, Prague, Yokohama, Torino, Warsaw, Vienna, Genoa, and Beijing. She has published approximately 200 essays on philosophical questions in contemporary art. Karttunen’s visual art is documented in artist monographs published in 2009, 2011 and 2014. The name of one of these books, ”Ulla Karttunen, A Modern Mystic” tells of her artistic inclinations: she is not only an avantgardist or a social critic but could also be seen as a mystic or visual philosopher of the digital age. For her pioneering work in multidisciplinary art, Ulla Karttunen was awarded a 5-year grant for by the Finnish state. 2016, installation Donna Criminale was awarded The Best Project Prize in Italy.

Alexander Korzer-Robinson Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 01/01/1975 Country: Germany Residence: UK Media: Other Price range: £ 400 - £ 1,200

Through my work in the tradition of collage I am pursuing a very personal obsession of creating narrative scenarios in small format. By using antiquarian books, it makes the work simultaneously an exploration and a deconstruction of nostalgia. We create our own past from fragments of reality in a process that combines the willful aspects of remembering and forgetting with the coincidental and unconscious. On a general level, I aim to illustrate this process that forms our inner landscape. By using pre-existing media as a starting point, certain boundaries are set by the material, which I aim to transform through my process. Thus, an encyclopedia can become a window into an alternate world, much like lived reality becomes its alternate in remembered experience. These books, having been stripped of their utilitarian value by the passage of time, regain new purpose. They are no longer tools to learn about the world, but rather a means to gain insight about oneself. MAIN PUBLICATIONS: 2016 Hey!

Benjamin Kustow Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 01/09/1988 Country: UK Residence: UK Media: Photography Price range: £ 3,500

Kustow was born in London, United Kingdom. He studied at Central Saint Martins from 2008-2011. He first came to the attention of the media with his 2009 portrait of Barak Obama. Kustow first began exhibiting in London in 2009. He had his first major gallery solo show, “Gentle On my Mind” at Mead Carney Fine Art, London in October 2014. In his work the isolated, singular elements on the canvas or photograph, punctuated by sparse white or black voids, create an emergent and volatile configuration through their immediate juxtaposition. Referencing iconography and loneliness in the 2014 exhibition his work contains both the building blocks for a pictorial narrative and also the methods of disguising it. A thematic juxtaposition of the representational versus the technical is apparent as Kustow explores the myth of the cowboy in a series of modern contexts. In the “Buddhist Monks” series a thematic pattern emerges which has harnessed the inherent qualities of his material by manipulating the contrasts between the contemporary and the timeless, the secular and holiness to create layers and depth and to encourage emotive and subjective responses in the viewer.

AWARDS: 2015 PhotoVogue “Italia best of” 2008 Power of Łódz, Creative Photography Award 2007 Power of Łódz, Creative Photography Award

When I was twelve, I discovered my mother’s old Exakta Varex camera with a 50mm lens and ever since that moment I’ve been shooting. I feel my true mother tongue is imagery over word. In 2004 I graduated from the Photography Department at the National Film School in Łódz. My main areas of interest include portraiture, editorial and creative pho- tography. I began my career as an assistant in a fashion photography studio. After a year I’ve begun conducting my own photoshoots. My cli- ents are primarily Polish fashion designers. I have prepared lookbooks and creative campaigns for leading Polish designers, including Agata Wojtkiewicz and Joanna Kedziorek. I also create and direct short film forms. My diploma photo-animation illustrates the story “Please Do Not Blame Anybody” by Julio Cortazar and was included in the Multimedia Collections of Józef Robakowski.

2005 BA Hons Contemporary Applied Art, Hereford College of Art, UK Currently represented by galleries in Ireland, UK, USA and Australia. My work is inspired by the rich textures and sculpted shapes of natural forms and landscapes. I walk the fields, hills and woodland surrounding my studio, and take trips to explore other landscapes, regularly walking coast paths and beaches. My eye will be caught by a curl of split bark, a seed pod, an eroded rock face, the skeletal shadows of winter trees. I have no interest in copying nature, but aim to capture a sense of it, my response to it, or a moment in time. I also draw inspiration directly from the natural qualities and characteristics of the metals I work with, it is vital to me that the medium is allowed to suggest a direction. My aim is to make work that draws out the raw and often transient beauty of the subject, and that celebrates the relationship between the natural environment and the extraordinary materials it provides.

Antigoni Manolidou Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 26/09/1967 Country: Greece Residence: Greece Media: Paintings Price range: £ 300 - £ 1,000

Antigoni Manolidou had initially studied medicine but went on to graduate from the Fine and Applied Arts Faculty of the Aristotelean University of Thessaloniki in 2004. She lives and works in Thessaloniki, Greece. She has been exhibiting in various venues in Greece and abroad. During the last five years her work revolves around urban and suburban architectural structures. External and internal spaces brings to mind a basic human habitat. The total absence of human presence, though, in combination with unspecified shadowy spaces leave the viewer with a sense of emptiness and ambivalence. Sometimes organic natural forms merge with clean cut architectural structures and other times fragments of recognizable elements are placed in a desolate setting resulting into an image of limited sight.

AWARDS: Northern Young Contemporaries (Prize Winner) Granada TV Manchester

The city stimulates me in every way, its many layers and complexities which come into play in my imagery. The visual overload. I am interested in finding ways of translating this energy and chaos into a painting, which whilst being one flat surface, can also provide depth and dimension and optical excitement. I work in series so I can explore and expand an idea that develops with each painting. Experimenting with colour, mark making and technique allows each work to have its own uniqueness whilst retaining the concept and connection to each other. Although each painting belongs to a series it is very much intended to stand alone both visually and conceptually. My art is executed by hand, by brush, by pouring or dragging paint, mark making, yet can appear digitally enhanced or manipulated. Technology is an influence because in contemporary life we are increasingly surrounded by it and reliant up on it. However, by choosing to use traditional mediums, such as paint on canvas, I am also reacting against technology to produce something unique, hand-made and coming from within me.

Dario Moschetta Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. Country: Italy Residence: Italy Media: Paintings Price range: £ 300 - £ 2,000

Italian artist Dario Moschetta finds his inspiration from the natural beauty of people and from “the effort to try to understand people’s mood by looking at their face or at the movements of their body.” His Mixed media works involve various techniques he has developed and experimented instinctively, using collage and acrylic paint on paper and on canvas. There is always a part of “randomness” in his creation process which provides the profound and unique meaning to each of his work. “Before starting a new artwork, the image I want to obtain comes from a heap of images or footage in my head. It’s like I’m directing a movie and I can choose from all those frames at my disposal.”

Mary Ann Obando Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 31/08/1984 Country: Colombia Residence: Colombia Media: Photography Price range: £ 800

Mary grew up in Bogota, Colombia. Since a young age she has been infatuated with art history and recalls watching biopics of famous painters during her childhood. In 2008 she completed her degree in Graphic Design but soon realised that her passion lay in photography. Mary’s conceptual and quirky art inspire her viewers to explore both the contemporary and fantastical. Her materials are built with the finest paper that help generate a visual narrative that’s embodied in her technique. During her time as a photographer she has produced three series of work: ‘Pandora’, ‘Rupture’ and ‘Rituals of the Organic’ . She has exhibited in X Florence Biennale, Young Art Gallery, The Kite, The Spanish Embassy (2011), Art Takes Miami, Basel (2011), Barcelona Showcase (2012) and Art Two Graphic Printing. Journeying through both graphic design, fine art and photography has made her into a developed and passionate artist. FAIRS: 2016 2016 2015 2011 2011 2011

I’m a photographer with a deep passion for art and photography. I have taken pictures since childhood and I studied photography whilst at University. I like reportage, street photography and portraits. In recent years, my inspiration has come from my instant surroundings: where I live and what I feel. This is represented in my images. Photography for me is not only a passion, but a means to make the invisible, visible. It helps myself and others to see what we sometimes fail to grasp in our mind. To me, photography becomes a necessity. I feel a sense of urgency to express myself through this medium and to develop projects which mark important changes within myself. My introspective journey through photography has encouraged me to help others and I focus my artist research around this sensibility. I use my photography to support other professionals like psychologists, therapists, life coaches and nutritionists to help people work on their emotions, self-perception, self-confidence and their own identity. This is what I’m striving towards: therapeutic photography.

Exhibition Xchange Lingotto - Torino (Italy) 2013 Arte in Contemporanea, 3rd edition - Winner of two purchase Awards - Modena (Italy)

Alice Padovani was born in 1979 in Italy where she lives and works today. She graduated from the University of Bologna with a Master’s Degree in Philosophy in 2007 and a Master’s Degree in Visual Arts in 2015. Padovani worked as an actor and director in the early 2000s and has an interest in experimental theatre which rears its head in her art practice. Preferring drawing, installation and performance, as a visual artist she takes part in several national and international solo and group exhibitions. A constant research and an unconventional path in the art world leads her to explore and to experience with many differents media, themes and artistic techniques. Padovani has an obsession with death and the passing of time. Her art acts as a kind of visual diary for personal experiences with loss and grief. Ghost-like in their weightlessness, Padovani’s drawings appear to hover on the page, repetitive and process-driven. Similarly, her assemblages and installations possess a purposeful delicacy which gives the impression that they have just been arranged there, only minutes prior to the viewer’s arrival. A mimicking of museological display is evident in her object works with their pins holding small collections of specimens in place. MAIN PUBLICATIONS: 2016 Vegetal works.

1998 B.A. Visual and Applied Arts Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki School of Fine Arts, Greece. 2002 Master of Fine Arts at Glasgow School of Art, Scotland. I have a dual identity as an artist and independent curator. I am the owner of the alternative project space Zoi’s and occasionally work as an art tutor in several institutions. I have participated in many internationals exhibitions. I was part of the Reconstruction Community, a platform initiated by a group of art theorists and historians, architects, sociologists and artists. The starting point had been the rethinking of the actual scene of Athens as a contemporary metropolis. The core of my work is the idea of experimenting in the processes of perception. A poetic transformation of the world into a spiritual world, where everything is combined and related. The desire is to go beyond the values of current morality, to return to innocence and create a world independent of any logic or principle.

AWARDS: Wells Contemporary Art Prize (shortlisted)

A graduate of the Utrecht University of Fine Art (Hogeschool voor de Kunsten), Justyna specialized in painting. A former project manager and internal communications officer in international corporations (Warsaw, Cologne and Frankfurt) she now lives and works in Amersfoort (the Netherlands), having decided to commit herself to her true passion and focus on creative work. Architectural structures and water are two recurring elements in her work: water as a metaphor for nature and the flow of life, urban structures as the reality of life and continuous growth of human life. The layers of a city build – and wither – slowly and imperceptibly over time. Decay may come fast or through waning processes, but it is clear when layers are revealed that we are not so different from ancient civilizations. The series ‘Cities’ is the most recent one. It consists of several metropolitan landscapes, illuminated by neon lights. The compositions are built using geometric shapes, curved lines and solitary, broad colour stains. The aspects that differentiate the series are the slightly disturbed symmetries yet apparent balance.

AWARDS: Wembley Central community art competition, first price Silver medal in decorative exhibit at Cake International ExCel London

Marta Pieregonczuk was born in Poland in 1980. While studying Journalism and Political Science at the University of Maria Sklodwska-Curie in Lublin she enrolled on an additional program in the fine art department. After moving to England Marta continued her education under Henry Liam Ward and has received a lot of support from many art lovers and collectors across Denmark, the UK and Germany. Her primary preoccupation is expressing the human condition with a special emphasis on meaning, mortality and the inevitability of loneliness; however she has continued to add more of a social commentary to her work. She is aiming to create artwork which is socially engaging and provocative which expresses a strong political opinion by using visual metaphors. She works with traditional artist’s mediums such as oil, ink, charcoal, pencil. While sculpting Marta enjoys experimenting with different materials and techniques to create realistic effects. She is a member of BAR (Brent Artist Resources), and the founder of Face Your Space Studio- an artist collective in North West London specializing in interior decorating and mural paintings. She has also been cooperating with artists from Creative Cricklewood.

AWARDS: 2015 Silver Medal for Painting, Masters International, London 2007 Second Prize, Lautieri Moores, Cork Street, London 1993 The Francis Martin Prize for Life Work, The WMC, London

Pradissitto’s Quantum Sculptures in light embrace the dual world of the Physicist and Artist. Described as ‘holograms you can touch’, forms inspired by nature, the human condition and scientific breakthroughs, are melted and reshaped from plastics into sculptures, as a commentary on an Anthropocene world in which a plasticised layer is already testament to the ending of three social and industrial revolutions. Based in South London her path to art includes a Ph. D from UCL on the Quantum behaviour of silicon in fibre optics and she has studied fine art at Goldsmiths College and Sir John Cass. Her works combine her love of experimentation and process in an innovative method, in which the work changes colour with movement. She has had solo shows in London and Venice and been shortlisted for various prizes including the Threadneedle and Celeste and has won prizes for her painting and life work. She has work in the Tokyo and Hove Museums and has sold to various private collectors and hotels, including The Arches and The Corinthia in London. Currently she is working on a series of Quantum portraits of innovative Future Thinkers and continuing her search for a ‘Brave New World’ aesthetic.

Sue Ransley Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 22/07/1959 Country: UK Residence: UK Media: Paintings Price range: £ 245 - £ 1,500

AWARDS: Shortlisted for the National Open Art Competition

Whilst I was a Blue Peter addict as a child (always painting or crafting something!) I didn’t pursue art as a career. Instead I seemingly abandoned something I loved dearly to pursue life. It was only after having raised my family, and stepped back from a busy and successful career, that I found myself at a pause. Time to myself! Such novelty! I immediately took up art again, and quickly found a deep love for oil paint - I still get such a thrill squeezing Alizarin onto my palette! I’m primarily self taught, but have been blessed with a brilliant mentor who has encouraged me, and been incredibly giving of his knowledge and advice. I also sign up for workshops with artists whose work I admire as often as possible to further increase my knowledge and skills. People are my thing - such a varied, dynamic and intriguing subject - I never tire of looking! And in any frozen moment there is a story to tell. So I capture everyday folk, with an honest but affectionate eye, with the aim of evoking a sense of the familiar.

Li Tsz Lan, who studied fine arts in the Chinese University of Hong Kong, is an enthusiast in painting and film. After graduation in 2004, she worked in the media production industry for a decade in order to chase her passion for film. She started to pick up painting again at the end of 2014. For her, painting is like a poem, which is in condensed form - a single image to bring out the boundless imagination; movie (a.k.a “moving pictures”) is like a novel, which is in extended form many visual images (plus sound and dialogues combined in this case) to bring out a single principal message. She always wanted to find strength and solace in religion like many others, but still as an agnostic, she tries to busy herself in Art instead, it has its pros and cons, but after all, Art is charm, a beautiful form of expression, sharing and meditation. She now works as a freelance multimedia producer based in Hong Kong, and will keep chasing her passion in movies and painting.

Michele Voigt is award winning, known for her electric images of the human experience. Identified as a “prodigy” Voigt began painting at age three. Childhood teachers include Howard Kanovitz and Larry Rivers. Voigt received her BFA from Otis Institute of Parsons Design and Parsons Paris. “I am driven by the human condition. I am compelled by the stratums of circumstance, choice, emotion and fate, combined with the energy and influence of the past as all conjoined lay prism to the future. The interconnectedness of all elements of all time. What is seen and not seen. Known and not known. Contemporaneous, interacting and incessantly influencing one another in a continuum of the past, present, and future. The entirety exists concurrently. I paint to render the human relationship with eternity, to demonstrate that the human reality as we experience it is bound to the continuum of time. My works are the complex language of layering multiple levels of imagery representational of our complicated existence. Through my process, I expose beauty that outlives barbarity, splendor that transcends tragedy.” Voigt’s artwork is exhibited internationally. She participates in major Art Fairs. Her works have been acquired by museums and foundations as part of their collections. COLLECTIONS: Philbrook Museum, Tulsa, OK, U.S.A. Parsons Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, U.S.A.

Simona Visan Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 09/01/1972 Country: Romania Residence: UK Media: Paintings Price range: £ 1,000 - £ 3,000

Simona was born in Romania where she spent the years of her childhood and adolescence in an era cold and deprived of freedom of expression. In those days, the only time people were allowed to use imagination and skills was on patriotism. She often found herself contemplating the horizon and imagining herself projected in a world surrounded by colour, music, hopes and joys, and this was the spark that initiated her love for the art. She studied Visual and Performing Arts but she’d like to see her as a self- taught artist because she feels art is continuous and evolving from her internal emotion. Simona lived in several countries immersing herself in each different culture and way of life; this has greatly influenced her vision and her artistic creativity. The common aspects of humanity and her continuous research in life brings Simona on a path to translate her vision of the world in art. Simona feels art to be an expression of freedom and hope that gives her a tool to express herself with her own perception of reality. Her inspiration comes from the world that surrounds her. Her works are in private international collections COLLECTIONS: Private Collections in Italy, Romania, Germany, UK and USA FAIRS: 2016 2016 2016 2015

AWARDS: 2016 Shortlisted for The Elbow Room Prize 2015 Shortlisted for the Royal Ulster Academy of Arts annual show

Ronan Walsh was born in Tyrone, N.Ireland, and now lives in London working predominantly in the medium of pencil and acrylic. Ronan’s work is an exploration of people, a visual portrayal of human perception of each other. The subject matter of each piece determines the materials and the forms of the work he produces. Whilst his work is usually stripped of external reference, he lets the subject be the central focus. Capturing a circumstance, reaction, or identity whilst revealing an alternative impression of that person, his work aims to provoke intrigue. Using a mix of acrylic and pencil on board, his style is a culmination of detailed line and angular shapes, revealing the abstract fabric of the subject.

Fintan Whelan Category: Selected Artist D.O.B. 31/08/1967 Country: Ireland Residence: Germany Media: Paintings Price range: £ 100 - £ 3,000

Fintan Whelan was born in Dublin and now lives in Germany. Working from his studio set next to the old walls of the university city, Göttingen, Fintan produces large scale abstracts with oils, varnishes and pigments on canvas. His distinctive style has received worldwide acclaim. He uses a variety of techniques - pouring, tipping, tilting - to create abstract compositions that resemble landscapes and human forms. What appears free-flowing is underpinned by strong direction and control over this dynamic process. The resulting paintings are beautiful and visually arresting. “As an artist I can only present what has stimulated my own curiosity and creativity. Viewers have reported being moved, if not challenged, by what they “see” in the juxtaposed forms and overlapping pigments. It has, in fact, prompted stirring argument in my presence, of what, how and why a given painting “speaks” to them. I cannot analyse it myself but find the energy behind viewers’ reactions quite moving.” FAIRS: 2016 Kunstmesse Kassel, documenta-Halle, Kassel, Germany 2016 ART SANTA FE (USA), represented by Gaudí Art Gallery, Madrid (Spain) 2013-15 Art’pu:l, Cologne, Germany 2007-08 Kunstmarkt, Hannover, Germany LATEST SOLO EXHIBITIONS: 2017 Lichtenberg Project, Künstlerhaus, Göttingen, Germany 2016 Leafy Secrets and Hidden Legacies, Rothe House, Kilkenny, Ireland 2014 Flow Paintings, Arts and Culture Centre, McAuley Place, Naas, Ireland 2014 Begegnung, Winkelman Gallery, Hanover, Germany 2014 InterView III - Kunstlerhaus Gallery Göttingen, Germany 2013 Beautiful Losers - 4h-art Gallery, Hanover, Germany 2013 Begegnung, Torhaus Galerie, Göttingen, Germany 2010 Open Spaces, Faces and other Traces, Atelier Block 16, Hanover, Germany 2009 Reflections, Silberstein Atelier, Göttingen, Germany 2005 Luz y Espacio, Museo de Blas Infante, Granada, Spain Travelling Light¦2016 Oil on canvas¦90cm x150cm

Hong Kong artist living and working in Paris, Celine received her art education at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Her research focuses on the visual possibilities of the materiality of painting. Her works evoke moments of transition such as apparition and evanescence, and very often convey a feeling of intangibility. These works are characterized by pictorial tensions between the tangibility of matter and the irrepresentable moments of transition. Her works are included in private collections in Asia.

Kelly Halabi Category: Guest Artist D.O.B. 21/08/1991 Country: Lebanon/France Residence: Switzerland Media: Sculpture/Paintings Price range: £ 3,500 - £ 5,000

Kelly Halabi Young artist, painter and sculptor, Franco-Lebanese. Born in Paris August 21st, 1991 and grew up between Paris and Lugano. She studied Fine Arts at the American University of Design Parsons (New York) in Paris. She participated in four group exhibitions in Paris, during her university time. Her first solo exhibition was at Aimo Room concept store in Lugano. Not containing herself to the classical mediums, Kelly continuously explores the infnite possibilities that surrounds her. It is this endless curiosity that makes her work so effortlessly captivating. Her unique vision and ability to fuse found objects together allow for her story to transpire. It is the destruction of the object’s primary intention that creates a palpable tension lined with furious anxiety. Kelly’s work is perforated with memories of a destruction and of war wounds she saw in her youth on the buildings and in the eyes of the people surrounding her, all resonating strongly throughout her work. In a world where chaos prevails she finds a way to tame the uncontrollable, allowing materials to coalesce into unexpected forms.The constant push and pull of emotions and cultures brings forth a semiconscious state of mind where structures are stripped down to their essence and a new physical and psychological depth is attained.

Maupal Category: Guest Artist D.O.B. 20/05/1972 Country: Italy Residence: Italy Media: Paintings Price range: £ 4,000 - £ 15,000

Mauro Pallotta has been in every big international newspaper from the Washington Post to Yahoo News International, The Chicago Tribune and France’s Le Monde to name a few. In August 2014 his works were displayed on maxi screens in Seoul during Pope Francis’ visit of South Korea. Predominantly using acrylic spray on wool steel, MauPal’s artwork holds strong social and political value. Portraits such as ‘Islam’ and ‘Hitchcock’ represent the artist’s temperament and sensibility as he draws on the topics of religion and mainstream culture.The artwork that launched MauPal’s prominence was his giant street painting of Pope Francis, positioned at a side road, just steps away from the Vatican. To accompany his ‘Pope Francis’ mural, the artist’s choice to exhibit in London holds particular relevance, as his next big painting paid homage to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Burgeoning into one of the great art hubs of London, the Meliá White House Hotel previewed three of MauPal’s paintings during ARTROOMS2015 including his celebrated portrait of Alfred Hitchcock. In the aftermath of his extraordinary street mural of ‘Pope Francis’, this exhibition provided a glimpse into the mind of an artist who is fast growing in stature and reputation.

Franco 53, lives and works in Cagliari, Italy. He is a self-taught painter. His passion started when as a child he was seeking inspiration at his grandfather’s workshop. Franco is incredibly well travelled and the different cultures he experienced are evident within his works. Franco’s artistic works cover the spectrum of human lives, engaging his audience with his authentic expressions of delights, sufferings and the emotions that surround us all. “Nonnis anthopomorphations lead again towards an image of freedom, where forms proliferate almost by themselves. Perhaps reference can be found in the iconic graffiti covering city walls or the imagery of simplified surrealism. The use of a clear priming, sets the painting in a kind of infantile elogy, like the little theatre fantasy world where characters and objects release themselves by their relationship with the conventional world. They generate a matrix of visionary and enigmatic context.” Nicola Nuti, Art Critic MAIN PUBLICATIONS: 2015 ArtRooms 2015 Catalogue, London (GB) 2012 Biennale di Venezia , Italian Pavillon Sala Nervi Torino Catalogue 2006 Illustrations, book “La culla” by Francesco Maria Tipaldi , Ed.

Giovani Designers in Emilia Romagna, Fashion Design section. Winner

Francesca Pasquali (born 1980) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in her native Bologna. Pasquali‘s work can be divided into several cycles of work, recognisable by their titles that often refer to the materials used, as with the Straws series. Cut to different lengths, innumerable plastic straws are attached to wooden panels – or more recently to mirror-polished Plexiglas – to create a vibrating surface. In the Frappe series, Pasquali experiments with neoprene, assembling layers of the material into spirals which are then mounted onto wooden panels or metal nets. Works from the Bristles series consist of plastic broom bristles assembled into wooden containers and arranged to form a soft, compact surface.More recently, the artist has been experimenting with long, uncut, plastic bristles, in particular with the site-specific installation Francesca Pasquali for Salvatore Ferragamo travelling to Milan and London in 2016.

Gloria Sulli is an artist who focuses her research in the macro-theme of nature. In her work balance and precariousness are placed in the foreground, in contraction, like atoms and primitive nuclei that emanate energy. Her concept of observation connects relationships that develop lightness and suspension, joining those of protection and experimentation. In a combination of methods, techniques, coming from the sculpture and installation world, she plans imagination without ever abandoning the playful and ironic dimension; she puts into play symbolism and ritual, and encourage a link between spirit and matter. Recently, she has intensified the tones: from soft colors - almost natural- to the use of harsh and metallic shades, that places her in virtual systems, illusory and unreal, essential. In moments of opening - from light to dark – she creates atmospheres, which stimulate the perception of wonder and enchantment.. FAIRS: 2016 2015 2015 2014

Fabrizio Trotta Category: Guest Artist D.O.B. 20/10/1973 Country: Italy Residence: Italy Media: Paintings Price range: £ 4,000 - £ 7,000

Fabrizio Trotta was born in Paola in 1973, in Calabria, where he currently lives and works after a long musical and artistic experience in Milan. He is a self-taught artist, while in his Milanese years he gained a diploma in Sound Engineering in 1994 and a university degree in Computer Science in 2001.For years he significantly undertook such activity of musical composer, arranger and producer. However, this especially gave him the right training to interpret the sound vibrations that he later converted in visual vibrations in his paintings.Fabrizio Trotta modulates soundwaves and frequencies with many materials and textures. His predilection for the materials and the colour, and his wish to involve the use of all our senses, including olfaction, took him to widen his artistic research to minimal paintings, realized with oil, pigments or spices. In this artworks, called “Chromotherapy” and “Chromoaromatherapy”, the colour, in his therapeutic and cathartic function, becomes the unique protagonist being represented as “material rain” through the new and original painting technique called “Spectrogram”, that reproduces on canvas a 3D spectrogram. After he met public approval in Italy and abroad, and with his works featuring in private and public collections, he creates the “Playing Art” in 2008. This is a new concept of a pictorial, dynamic, interactive and subtly playful art, whose potential is closely linked to the possibility of interaction and intervention by the owner/observer on the painting itself.

I studied Fine Art at Goldsmith’s College, Portsmouth Polytechnic ( BA Fine Art. Hons.) and Sussex University. My paintings, hand built porcelains and more recently photographic prints have been widely exhibited in Britain, Minnesota, Zurich, Basel, New Delhi, Belgium, Italy, France and Spain. My photographic prints are another response to ideas inspired by strata, marine forms, fossils, bones and the ancient resonant history of landscape. These photographs link to my other current work in hand built porcelain. I often use film ( Fuji A.S.A. 400) for its painterly quality and occasionally a digital camera.

Stevens Vaughn Category: Guest Artist D.O.B.05/06/1958 Country: USA Residence: China Media: Paintings Price range: £ 2,000 - £ 4,000

Stevens Vaughn born in Minnesota, United States, is a ritualistic water painter who uses pigments to document the language of water. His exhibitions are influenced by his study and training in the philosophy of how important imperfection is to the state of perfection in Japan and China. In 1984, Vaughn set up a glass sculpture and blowing studio in Hsinchu, Taiwan and designed media for US retailers including Neimen Marcus, Bloomingdales and Gumps during which he designed products in Limoges, France and glass on the island of Murano, Italy. In 1988 he developed ceramic and porcelain studios in Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, China based on what he learned in Asia. In 1996, he moved to the island of Xiamen, China where he played a major role in the development of porcelain art in the cities of Chaozhou and Dehua, where he was given an honorary professorship in the Ceramic Institute in addition to lecturing in the Central Academy of Art Beijing.His methods of painting have been reported to use ritual “dripping” techniques that don’t pull out the color randomly, rather distribute pigments dropwise. The technique uses instability of the fluid to create figures and the splash of the droplets to further enhance the painting.

Open Letter to the Art Collector

Dear Collector, I really can’t say… Why are we artists and who is an artist? I really can’t say… Why am I an artist? Is it my nature? Or Which colours make you smile today? Who are you, collector? The artist … does he collect ideas? I really can’t say… The metal and the paper, Finishing an artwork …just wondering... Together, maybe… Each with their own perspective or perception of what it should be Why you want “me”?

These are excerpts from “An Open Letter to the Art Collector”, first results of a series of experiments/installations/essays/works investigating the complexity of the relationship between the artist and the collector. From these first letters we have collected so far, it stands out how hesitations and blank canvas minded moments arise in the mind of the artist when confronted to the figure of the Art Collector. The installation is placed at the entrance of the fair because it intends to open the dialogue; to remind us that Art is not a monologue. It invites us to interact, to connect with the artist and the artwork. Seeking to uncover for the collector the secrets of the the person behind the work and introducing to the artist who will have to honor to become the guardian. This unveiling is perchance that very thing, that holds the art world Together. We still don’t know…. We invite you all to write us a letter and join us in the quest.

Cristina Cellini Antonini

Together, is it so? Gratefully yours, The Artist

“A Holographic Theater EyeMagic” presented by MDHhologram U.K. & Studio Tangram Italy

During Expo Milano 2015, the Venezuela pavilion used Studio Tangram/MDHhologram to enclose its visitors in the singing, dancing and nature of this beautiful South American country! Sounds, movements, and colours. The energy of the dancers, perfectly punctuated by holographic and lighting effects, quickly captured the viewers’ imagination. Throughout the show, the audience could truly interact with the hologram: diving in the clear water of Los Roques archipelago in the Caribbean Sea, breathing the air of Caracas while travelling by cable car, and dancing with dolphins – getting the real Venezuelan experience. About To create the hologram for the Venezuelan pavilion we used a 6m x 4m EyeLiner™, with background images. Contents and equipment were conceived for the viewer to interact with the hologram. Reactions At the opening ceremony, the groundbreaking holographic showcase was welcomed with rounds of applause and cheers. Thanks to Studio Tangram, at the end of the event, the Venezuela stand won the Silver Awards for content and design, for the great representation of cultural contents. Now Studio Tangram achievements are certainly well-known also in South America.

Svetlana Bogatcheva is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist born in St.Petersburg, Russia in 1986. Currently living and working in Finland she has been influenced by many different cultures and traveled extensively. Svetlana’s process consists of periods of deep introspection, retreat, observing, research, writing and sketching. Materials are unexpected and simultaneously often taken from the everyday life, such as: recycled textiles and plastic, rubber, natural materials and even food. The ideas, feelings and physical materials now all have to be carried to term, in their own time. The act of creation in itself is something that must be very pure, it can not be forced or controlled.The subjects are existential questions, motherhood, womanly power and the fullness of our experience of life once we open up to everything, even the most uncomfortable.

In 2016, after receiving her BFA Reyhaneh Mirjahani has moved to Poland to challenge herself in a new platform. Reyhaneh initiated her professional career by participating in the “Fourth International Tehran Symposium”as an artist’s assistant in 2012. Later on, she participated in two group exhibitions in “Iranian Artists Forum’s Gallery” in 2014 and 2015. In September 2016, she was the finalist in the super-young artist section of the “Celeste Network” competition in London. During her practice as an art practitioner, sculpture and installation have become a means for her to express the antithetical and paradoxical sensations. In the past three years, her main focus has been on the parallel worlds of the imagination or past and the reality or present. Reyhaneh’s interest in her latest works is deeply rooted in exploring the unconscious potentials of these parallel worlds in human’s mind through the memories of losing or leaving. Her last project is called “Post-Absence” series.

Mireia de Coursey Category: To Watch D.O.B. 19/12/1980 Country: Spain Residence: UK Media: Paintings Price range: £ 2,000 - £ 3,500

Born in Reus, Catalonia in 1980. Her artistic journey began when she attended La Llotja Arts School in Barcelona although she would describe, and like to think of herself, as self-taught artist. She recalls creating abstract forms of expression since a very early age. She found sense in the surreal and to become immersed in that world appeals to her now as it did when she was a child. She remembers her father telling her not to waste time drawing portraits and landscapes instead. she never understood him and nothing he suggested resonated with her. Creating intangible art and other forms of expression did and it continues to inspire her and it is the very thing that makes sense now. To move others, provoke in them the sense of joy and feeling that she experiences, it is what drives her today. Who wants to see “ reality” when we live it everyday?

Falk von Schönfels Category: To Watch D.O.B. 13/08/1977 Country: Germany Residence: Germany Media: Paintings Price range: £ 1,500

The intrinsic interest of visualization of anything started very early in my live. In fact, as long as I can think back into my childhood, I had a pen or a brush in my hand, mostly for the purpose of drawing cheap little comics. That’s not unusual for a kid, but I never gave them out of hand again. Contrariwise, I discovered plenty of other materials throughout the further years, such as spray cans, acryl- and oil-colors, clay, fimo, waste and, of course, cameras. I remember my first analog pentax too well, a nice shooter. After checking out some schools in Munich, I ended up in Croydon, Great Britain, for my a-levels. As conclusion to my artistic interests I returned to Munich and studied classical grafic-design at Akademie u5 (diploma in 2001). Even if I grew up with C64 and Atari, I started working with computers pretty late. Today I mostly work freelance for various magazines as an art-director, journalist and supervisor. Photography is still a big thing in my life and I love painting with acrylic colors and writing poetry as well as doing any kind of experiments in creativity. Some new experiences are installations.

Emese Wu Category: To Watch D.O.B. 23/03/1971 Country: China/Hungary Residence: UK Media: Sculpture Price range: £ 3,500

Born in Hungary, Emese Wu moved to the UK in 2003. Having graduated from Central Saint Martins, she currently lives and works in London. When she begins to construct a piece of work, she is conscious of the fragility of biological existence, its delicate surface subject to limitations, the creeping eventual deterioration, and the occasional moments of the miraculous. A fascination with life, and ultimately death has often been the trigger for her artistic expression, and so there is from the start a marked sense of ambiguity in her work, a sense of simultaneous possibilities. In attempting to allow viewers the possibility of becoming deeply immersed in an ambience of senses and emotions, she found it necessary to create an impact similar to that of a dose of fundamentally experienced reality. In order to achieve this, she chose to involve both living and dead organisms, everyday objects and objets trouvés, both natural and manufactured, all experienced in a duration of reality - that is, time.
