All in Painting

Ryan Sullivan

Ryan Sullivan (b.1983, New York) graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence (RI) in 2005. Built up in multiple layers, Sullivan’s large-scale paintings reflect his dynamic and constantly-evolving mode of abstraction, with each painting standing as a physical record of its own creation – both embodying and describing material flows and physical processes. Distinctive and unrepeatable, Sullivan’s works have been praised for their assertion of painting's enduring critical importance and potential.

Malgosia Jankowska

Painter Malgosia Jankowska was born in 1978 in Sochaczew, Poland and studied painting in Warsaw and Berlin. With fine brush strokes, she sets people and nature in opposition to each other. She masterfully creates pictures of stunning depth and spaciousness by alternating translucent and pastose colors. Mysteriously, white light bursts through the tree trunks of some paintings like a white haze. The filigree lines, together with the softened tones – sometimes restricted to a single color on a white background, hearken back to the engravings of old fairytale books.

Jana Brike

Jana Brike was born in year 1980 in Riga, Latvia. She has studied academical painting in the Art Academy of Latvia and received M.A. degree in year 2005. Her work has been exhibited internationally in professional venues since 1996 while she was still a young teenager, and since then she has had 13 solo exhibitions and nearly 100 other projects and group exhibitions all over the world.

Fabio La Fauci

Fabio La Fauci’s work, often inspired by Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, and oscillating between abstract geometry and organic reality, escapes all attempts at artistic classification.  His works’ intrinsic plastic ambiguity enables a transformation, the passage from one form to another form and from one meaning to another meaning. 

Alejandra Atarés

Alejandra Atarés (Zaragoza, 1987) studied Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, widened her knowledge in Bristol and deepened her studies in Art and Design at the Massachussets College. She started to exhibit her work in 2009 and she participated in several group shows and four solo shows in Barcelona.

Reiner Heidorn

Reiner Heidorn is a german neo-expressionist, lives in Germany next to Munich. If you ask the Weilheim artist Reiner Heidorn about his understanding of himself as an artist, he will say: “Painting to me means literally pushing oil paint across the canvas, shaping it in such a way that, with or without figuration, the result is a harmonious pictorial whole that does not show an artist’s characteristic manner and, without any specific artist’s hand, covers the surface, the way a tree trunk is blanketed by the elements.” Heidorn’s work is characterized by a freedom in his approach that is perhaps only available to the self-taught.

Daniel Richter

Daniel Richter was born in 1962 in Eutin (Germany). Today, he lives and works in Berlin. The artist has shaped painting in Germany since the 1990s as few others have done. In his large-scale oil paintings, Richter dovetails set pieces of art history, mass media and pop culture into idiosyncratic, narrative pictorial worlds.

RENATE POLZER

Born 1947 in Bruck a.d.Mur, Austria, Renate Polzer was working 20 years as a free lance artist and organizor of cultural events in southern Styria. She studied History of Arts on the Karl-Franzens University in Graz and published her diploma thesis as a book „Horst Reichle, Maler und Graphiker“, Biberacher Verlagsdruckerei.

Jonatan Alfaro

In my paintings, the contrasted colors, colliding head on, reign supreme. In delicately expressed, tenuous settings , I let things appear. They are evocative settings, which can be associated with the landscape, although it is a personal landscape, fractured and torn, in which we see intriguing openings. They are like a fleeting punctuation that opens up onto unknown panoramas. In these we see architectonic deviations that allow us to perceive corners and far-off, complicated settings.

Kevin A. Rausch

Intense in raw imagery and intrinsically timeless in nature, the work of Kevin Rausch serves as a patchwork narrative, weaving together stories and scenes in a rich capturing of contemplative moments that waver just on the verge of concrete recognition. Monumental in scale, Rausch’s large format paintings depict far-away panoramas, distinct in their complex layering and astounding physicality, and the beings that wander continuously amongst them.

Interview with Gabi Domenig

Where do you get your inspiration from? The inspirations for my pictures meet me everywhere. In the media, such as film, television and (music) videos, on the Internet, on trips, in newspapers, books, in pictures and texts and in the flow of life itself. My main theme was always the woman. I want to show women in their size and uniqueness consciously and thus to pay respect to those who still do not get enough despite the great daily work. If I was not a painter, I would certainly be involved in women's and children's rights policies.
