Beatriz Milhazes

Clare Woods

The paintings of Clare Woods (b. 1972, Southampton, UK) are essentially concerned with sculpting an image in paint, and expressing the strangeness of an object. Originally trained as a sculptor, much of Woods’ work is an exploration of physical form. This understanding of sculptural language and a preoccupation with forms in space, translated into two-dimensional images, underpins her pictorial practice.

Interview with Christine Marie Nobre

Graduated from Fine Arts School of Versailles, France, Christine Marie Nobre works different technics such as painting, photography and video. She builds something like a small decor with her paintings, mirrors, lights and other things …which she manipulates with her hands.  She goes off in search of adventure and on a journey in vastness as well as in infinitely small. Her mean of conveyance is light. She opens up passages to her imagination which become the visitor’s imagination through cosmic as well as spiritual or organic visions. These visions are the exact opposite of space and time.

Alexander Tinei

Alexander Tinei is a Moldovan artist, who has worked and lived in Hungary for more than a decade now. The starting point for all of his works is some photo found in the media. After that he places his chosen characters into a new context, making their bodies unique via vein-like, colorful, stigmatic signs. The details painted with almost anatomical precision are contrasted with often roughly made, abstract surfaces.

Joan Mitchell

Joan Mitchell was born in Chicago in 1925. After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1947, she was awarded a James Nelson Raymond Foreign Traveling Fellowship, which took her to France for a year in 1948-49, and it was there that her paintings moved toward abstraction.
