Icons. - The Human Condition. Religion. Hollywood. Light. Dark. Body. Soul. These concepts are a constant ever changing conundrum, in an age of global media, obsessed with celebrity and objects of desire. Is reality as we see it real, or is it us, living through others. The faces that we face are not the other's, but our own, reflected. Icons are our reflection and we are theirs.

What is a chemical reaction between two forms. Are their souls waking up. Pushing them towards each other. An electromagnetic force propelling them towards each other. Through the noise and the lights and the signs and souls around them. What divine force connects them together.Â

ALEKSANDRA CHEREPANOVA What you see is the result of infinite creative exploration, of my passage from abstraction to object and back to abstraction. It might not be obvious to everyone, but all my works are united by one common thread. This may be stylized sea waves, or a fantasy-like story. But everything I depict has been felt and lived by me in reality, despite the fantastic or non-objective subject-matter.

Chris Dale Chris Dale spent his life trying to express himself creatively. In his youth he was fortunate to have had opportunities in schools to learn to paint, drawing and photography. As with many of us the financial responsibility of family and children placed his desires to pursue art full time on hold. This responsibility has ended and the need for financial security has been lost the only desires to create remains. The work you see is the result of his long silences from a grown man.Â JAAMZIN CREATIVE | 10
Federico Cortese I was born in 1971 in Turin, Italy, where I live and work as an artist. Since I can remember I have always drawn. My preferred techniques are classic oil on canvas paintings, and pencil drawings.Â Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m like a mouse in its box. A little mouse safe in its shelter, that passes his time gnawing the food stored for the winter. But my food are the drawings. I work within my home. My studio is a room of the house in which I live. In this relatively small space are accumulated all the materials and equipment I need to draw and paint, but in a certain sense also the suggestions that inspire my work
