Pere Ibañez Spanish artist Pere Ibañez resides en Beijing, China since 2007. His work draws inspiration from the dramatic and suspenseful styles of classic horror films, images that seek to explore aspects of human nature that often go underplayed and trivialised. Instead, through photography and poetry, aiming to magnify both the falls and ascensions of the human experience through the camera lens. “All Things Come To An End” is part of his upcoming 10 year collection and photo-book ´X Selected Works 2010-2020´ to be released this coming fall.

Tania Chanter “I have always had a love of the ocean,” says artist Tania Chanter. “The depth and richness of the colours, the complexity of the sky, the churning foam of the ocean on stormy days and the sunlight playing through tall grasses as they bend and wave.” Tania’s abstract works capture the rich colours found along the Australian coast, and draw on the power and drama of storms, sunlight and the ocean. Using brushes, knitting needles and her favourite tools, her hands, the artist adds layer upon layer to each canvas until she is satisfied. What results are alluring, sensory pieces that are full of energy.

Kata Koleszár My name is Kata Koleszár. I’m a Budapest (Hungary) based artist. In my paintings I am critically scours the world’s image of beauty to fully understand it’ s impact on our societal world view of the human body. I imagine the utopistic beauty without any category. In my new artworks my interest turned from bodies to forests, gardens and flowers, representing the beauty in a very different way. These two artworks are part of my latest, six pieces series . I made them between 2018 and 2019. Two years ago I was travelling a lot to Netherlands, Scotland and Switzerland and saw several artworks of Rubens. I was impressed by his colors and chubby figures. Those times I was still focusing on human body in my own artworks. He had a great influence on me therefore I made this six pieces series and named it Love in the Forest.

Geoff Greene When I was about 16 I had a friend who could draw a perfect motorcycle just pick up a pencil and with a few precise strokes make an ideal “Harley hog” appear on the page. Perfect apehanger bars, perfect dual throne seat, the rear-sweeping, high-flown pipes it always came out the same, always exactly perfect. You could almost hear the darn thing roar.
This excited something akin to envy in me and I tried and tried to mimic his drawing, but mine never came out anywhere near perfect. Quite frustrating, and even worse, after a while my drawings didn’t resemble a motorcycle at all but morphed into a horse or a giant bird shooting flames from its mouth or a naked dancing girl. Yet one day, looking over my failures, it occurred to me that in my flopping around was doing something else, something much more interesting.

Thomas Jourdan My name is Thomas Jourdan, living in Germany. I came from coding and mathematics to art. In the 1980er I wrote my first program for a numerical controlled plotter. Years later I was working on genetic algorithms to calculate abstract forms and color palettes. Now working on a rule based generative system. Many of my 3d images are made by using algorithmic rules to generate the geometry and the placements of all the objects. My images are often inspired by by things I in see nature like branching structures, flowers or the texture of stones. By using algorithms an abstraction layer is introduced into the creative process. In this way the viewer is free to interpret the image in her own way.

Ian Turnock My sculpture is inspired by pattern and symmetry in nature. One of my main sources of inspiration are the silhouettes formed against the sky by tree foliage at different times of the year. The spaces between the branches and leaves are just as important, a concept known in Japanese gardens as ‘Ma’, and is akin to the silences between the notes in music. Sometimes it is the gaps I am looking for just as much as the leaves themselves.
