Alibrandi, Elaine

USA

Painting

The inspiration for my abstractions is feminine imagery, which to me expresses strength and vulnerability, power, mystery, and creative potential. This imagery is everywhere, and is often overlooked. People can run their eyes not only over the surface of my work, but beyond it through openings in the canvas or inside and over its hills and valleys. My paintings celebrate color and texture, and reflect all the experiences of my life

 

Andreasen, Rikke Line

Denmark

Painting

I am a City person, currently I live in Copenhagen, previously I lived in London, Barcelona and Berlin. I love living in the big city with all its noise, light and vibrant life, with people from all different cultures, and different environments, and where Music, Food, Architecture, Theater and Art are easily accessible. I grew up in a small town by the sea, surrounded by beautiful Forests and fields. And when I'm in the nature today, I almost feel that I am in a holy place – nature's beauty, wildness and fragility are magical to me. Therefore it hurts me and it scares me, when I see how we humans destroy and pollute our Planet. I hope the audience will view my paintings with contemplation, but also with a smile.

Andresen, Tove

Denmark

Painting

A painter, a designer, an art teacher, an art therapist and a book illustrator: Tove Andresen, an eclectic personality, chooses for her canvasses the most charming and accomplished objects existing in nature: flowers. This Danish artist with a rich curriculum of exhibitions and art-related activities achieves a result of high quality. What impresses of Andersen’s paintings - naturally also comprising other subjects besides flowers - is brightness: the works, painted in acrylic colours, are a downright bath of light, thanks to, apart from the subject, her technical mastery and especially her skilful use of colour, which alone creates the image.

 

Antonsen, Inger Dillan

Norway

Painting

I have always been interested in art, music and above all, dance. My father as a musician wanted me to play piano and viola. Dance class was out of the question as there was no such thing at that time in the little city of Bodø (north of the polar circle). I started art school at the National College of fine Arts and Design, Oslo in 1954. Movement is important to me, beauty and balance as well, but above all colours.

 

Arif, A.Q.

Pakistan

Painting

I paint the glories of nature and magnificence of God. I believe that there is nothing unnatural on this earth. Through my work, I need people to understand a simple fact that we all need to appreciate the beauty and harmony given to us by God. Beauty is not only in vibrant colors and pretty things like flowers, peacocks and angelic creatures; it lies in the hands of man and his heart. I have chosen architecture as my point of interest and I have shown the complexities as well as its simplicity side by side to compliment each other. I usually choose minimum colors and work in their tones, so that the attention of the viewer does not divert from my objective. I choose to use earthy tones and the various shades of the night sky because to me they depict our soil. Seeing my work the viewer undergoes a very serene and harmonious sense, due to its blissful equilibrium where time just stands still and one gets a moment to inhale the view and its tranquility.

 

Arif, Mussarat

Pakistan

Painting

As calligraphy is an ancient form of visual art, which gives a message of peace, love and brotherhood, I use it to highlight the same message given to humanity throughout the world by every religion. I want to make a point through my Paintings that although all human beings belong to different cultures language and creed the basic message of all religions is peace, love and tolerance – the bad is always bad and the good is always good.
Various symbols, Islamic motifs and cultural references which I use for unknown and known realities of this world, enhance my calligraphic work and add a unique new style to my basic form and design, and characteristic manner of expression.

 

Ashley, Erin

USA

Painting

Erin Ashley's abstracts have an edgy vibe and contain a wide range of color and texture but are balanced with a modern fashionable design. Her paintings bring a dynamic pop of color to wherever they are hung, but the compositions remain livable and accessible, which make them appealing to a wide range of audiences. Her work has been published all over the world.

 

Balogh, Adam

Hungary

Painting, Photography

Adam Balogh painter-photographer was born in Budapest in 1971. His receptive, open personality and exotic journeys as well as the influence of Central and South America, Southeast Asia and the Middle East are reflected in his art.
His paintings confess the inner journey made. Universal pictures, spiritual works that are clear and perceptible for everybody. Is this imagination or “another” reality? It takes us back to the origin: out to the stars or/and into ourselves? Is this mystical world to be found in distant universe or rather very near, in ourselves, in the rich internal images of the subconscious?

 

Barnhart, Gary

Canada

Sculpture

It was an honour to be invited by Trevisan International Art to exhibit at the 2010 "Creative Energy" Exhibition in Ferrara, Italy. I am a sculptor of stone. Marble, Limestone and Alabaster. I seek my inner self when I approach the stone knowing it has a life of its own and it is my gift to release this ethereal image into the physical world of shape and form. My intent is to commune with the natural material of stone and to discover through the creative process the essence beauty of the unknown.

 

Battley, Sieglinde

Australia

Painting

I was born in the town of Gumbinnen in East Prussia, which is now called Gusev and belongs to Russia. I studied Graphic Design in Frankfurt / Germany under Carlo Ruppert. I lived in Indonesia and Iran before migrating to Australia in 1978. I hold a Diploma in Fine Art from the West Australian School of Art and Design and a Bachelor Degree of Art (Fine Art) from Curtin University in Western Australia. I paint what I see, hear, smell, feel and think. I am a storyteller. I often depict animals and these creatures end up sharing idiosyncrasies of friends and family. They become symbols of my own fears, hopes and desires as well. I am often surprised what looks back at me from my canvas and these accidents I love most. They might not be so accidental after all.

 

Baxter, Nina

England

Painting

Focusing on the interaction of colour within restricted geometric compositions, Baxter’s studies of the landscape are taken out of context and distanced to a point where they are perhaps not even recognisable as a landscape at all.
Born in London, Baxter received a BA in Art History from the Courtauld Institute of Art and now works from a studio in Bermondsey; her background in Art History is considered fundamental to the creative process.
She has works held in private collections in the UK, USA, Ukraine and Beijing.

 

Beiner & Beiner Atelier

Germany

Painting

The works of the two German artists Elvi and Iris Beiner are characterized by an extraordinary and distinctive image architecture and language. In the abstract works meet next to different materials as well harmonious color gradients and perfectly set forms with the finest graphic elements. This creates dialogues in the imagery, creating tensions and contrasts.

 

Bello, Gon

Netherlands

Sculpture

The inspiration for the sculptures is found in the stones itself. The shape and colour of the stones are leading to the creative process and the final result. Therefore each sculpture is authentic and like no other. The sculptures are mostly organic as well as figuretive. One time I play with the light and reflections, another time the shape of the stone is dominating.

 

Benus, Pim

Netherlands

Photography

Wandering through forests and meadows, over mountains and along coasts, while the landscape unrolls as a movie in slowmotion, I’m getting fascinated by spaces and objects influenced by the present light.
I will show intimate impressions, indefinite views, sometimes decorative details, without documenting the reality of the landscape. It is the fixed view, the cut-out and the light that causes the emotional load and reflects the relation between me and nature.

 

Binstok, Cristina

Argentina

Photography

Much of Cristina Binstok's work is related to the mystery of small details and the magical events of the instant moment. The essence, the colour and the movements of Nature and water touches her soul envisioning the hidden scene which she captures with the camera. With her images she loves to create and inspire countless interpretations and feelings captivating the spectator imagination enabling them to see "an ocean from a drop".

 

Blankesteijn, Hetty

Netherlands

Sculpture

I was born and bred at the Dutch seaside in 1956. I played endlessly at the beach as a child, feeling free and timeless. Working as an artist now, I try to incorporate those childhood feelings of curiosity, adventure and playfulness when I create in clay and wax. Finding the right movement and rhythm in my sculptures is an almost endless search, but at the same time it is a staring adventure which gives me energy and puts my senses wide open.

I was taught at the Royal Academy for fine arts in Amsterdam.

 

Boghiu, Verena

Switzerland

Painting

Verena Boghiu-Menzi attended the Art College (Textil - und Kunstgewerbeschule) in Zurich, with the renowned artist Johannes Itten. The Swiss painter and pedagogue was teaching from 1912 to 1923 at the Bauhaus and was especially well-known for teaching the application of color in art. His chromatics is being globally used and has a strong impact on the work of Verena. The elements of water, fire and light are inspiring her again and again. Strong colors and light effects are moving and fascinating the observer. And that is what she always wanted her paintings to do: to stimulate the lust for life.

 

Braakman, Sia

Netherlands

Painting

Sia Braakman’s artistic personality makes her favour the colour blue, in a range of different hues that are nonetheless always deep and bright. Stroke after stroke, Braakman creates her works following her own internal balance, gradually giving rise to sometimes light harmonies, other times more pronounced formal structures, where individual strokes and pictorial gestures converse and play with each other in harmony. 
 

Broeren, Yvonne

Netherlands

Painting

For more than 32 years, I’ve been living in Ouddorp, by the sea in the Netherlands.
The silt air, the blues and greens of the sea, the Nature, every season that leaves her traces in shape and colour are a great source of inspiration for my abstract landscapes and seascape paintings.
My passion to create transforms each painting to an intuitive journey of discovery through layers of paint. The result is a story on the canvas that goes beyond words and leaves room to the fantasy and the feelings. 
 

Bührmann, Elke

Germany

Painting

Bührmann concentrates mainly on experimenting with colour and from including the usage of various materials like ground marble, slaked lime, mordant, bitumen and rust. By the interaction of different materials each painting becomes a new exploration and adventure. She sometimes fails but takes up this challenge. This way Elke Bührmann's visions, spirit and emotions become visible and perceptible. She wants to invite the viewer of her paintings to go on a journey in order to explore structures and to get inter a dialogue.
 

Calder, Ana

Costa Rica, Sweden

Painting, Design

I was born and raised in urban Costa Rica and my current home is Sweden where everyday ‘thinking out of the box’ brings inspiration! I attended college in New Orleans but my profound love for nature seduced me in to later live 15 years in the rain forest where I built an eco-friendly hotel.
I like that there is no right or wrong in Art, which gives me the freedom to approach art and design in an open minded way. I forget time and space when I’m forming an idea, is like entering illusion, unaware of what forms will appear. Most of my artwork comes out from inspiration related to ’Magic realism’, suggesting a context uncommon of natural law. I play with mixed media, incorporating just about any technique that can be wall-mounted on canvas.
 

Carter, Julia

Australia

Painting

Julia‘s paintings overflow with optimism, energy and a sense of celebration; such is her attitude to life. Enjoying an experimental approach, she captures the natural world in breathtaking and dynamic form, weaving together textures, symbols and vibrant colour. “I see connections in Nature and our own experiences and love to explore the power of synchronicity and our individual purpose. My paintings are landscapes of the soul.” Julia is an award winning artist who has exhibited widely and whose work is held in private and corporate collections around the world.
 

Casanova, Blanca Ruth

Mexico

Painting

"My paintings are intellectual and emotional reflections of my life as a Mexican woman. The act of painting is what motivates me. Textures and drippings are expressing events in my life. Geometric, Figurative or Abstract Expressionistic paintings emerge while I play with colors, textures and forms as life plays with me." Blanca Ruth studied Arts, Graphic Design, and art courses in Mexico and USA. As an expressionist and abstract artist, she experiments with textures and mixed media. She has exhibited fourteen solo and more than a hundred group artshows in Mexico, USA and Europe, participating at international contests. She has got seven awards.
 

Casas, Jose Maria

Argentina

Painting

Jose Maria Casas a.k.a. "two-" is a young artist from Mar del Plata, Argentina. Born in 1981 he has shown his works in his country and in the world. He has walked his own path through the world of abstraction. Trying to avoid common places, Jose Maria has developed a very strong personal style which distinguishes itself by its stunning but clear colour use, the balance and equilibrium of his compositions that create that "everything in its right place sensation", and the greater expressionism of his works. His tools of the trade are mainly acrylics, oils, and watercolours, and his creations are strongly influenced by music. He has shown his work in Turkey, Puerto Rico, Denmark, Italy, Spain, USA, Canada, Honduras, Uruguay, and of course in Argentina.
 

Cecchin, Maggie

Australia

Painting

In the vastness of the Australian landscape the horizon is distant and straight. This series of paintings titled Ancient Land Horizon was inspired by a road trip through the outback of Australia. The landscape is vast and flat with colours and textures shifting as the sun moves across immense expanses of earth.
After a career as a health professional and academic my life changed some 20 years ago when I discovered the joy of painting and made the decision to make art my future. While significantly self-taught I have studied at Adelaide Central School of Art, through the Museum of Modern Art, New York and taken Master Classes with Australian artists.
 

Chu Redmond, Adrian

United States

Painter

Adrian Chu Redmond is an internationally-acclaimed artist with a poetic eye and desire to bring energy and expression into everyday life. She draws inspiration from colors in nature while utilizing bold brush strokes, strong palette knife markings and vivid hues to characterize her work. She finds beauty in the overlooked and channels those moments to express her vision of the world. Through her unique style of abstract realism, she brings energy into her subjects by making them appear larger than life.
 

Day, Jerry L.

USA

Photography

Jerry Day is a Southern California based photographer specializing in nighttime and astronomical photography. Jerry’s photography reflects his fascination with the scenic beauty and history of the desert southwest. He finds particularly compelling the ruins of ghost towns to be found along lonely desert back roads, as well as the abandoned cliff dwellings and rock art of the Native American, remnants of an even more ancient people. Jerry is an active member of Trevisan International Art, the Ferrara Collective and the Redlands Art Association.
 

de Groot, Georges

Netherlands

Painting

Georges de Groot (1974), drawing, painting and sculpting thread throughout his life. He awakens canvas and media with quirky fantasy creatures reflecting his captivating imagination. Every object tells its own story in which shape and colour surprise. His inspiration includes whimsy of animal fables and fairy tales with medieval and prehistoric traces and textures.
A blank canvas sets the stage for Georges de Groot to imagine and fascinate through structure, texture and color. The paintings, full of colour and expression, deviously reveal joy and enthusiasm.
 

D'Espinay Saint-Luc, Rosiario

France/Colombia

Painting

Rosario d'Espinay Saint-Luc was born in Palmira, Colombia, of a French father and Colombian mother. Yet Rosario decided to leave Ecuador, where she spent her early years, to come and live in Provence (South of France). Those elements of her life and choices naturally made her sensitive to the harmony of cultures, the importance of light and the diversity of perceptions. In 1996, she initiates herself into abstract painting and acrylic techniques. For fifteen years now, Rosario joined her own aesthetics. She indeed knew to develop a personal style in the crossroads of her two cultures, French and Latin American. Mixed pictorial inspirations, lights in the very different contrasts slowly shaped her work to give rise to an intuitive, lyric world, but also a world loaded with complex episodes of a life. She goes through her childhood, her adult's life, delivers us in small touches her feeling, her vision of the world, her enjoyments and her fears.
 

Dijkhuis, Anneke

Netherlands

Painting

Anneke Dijkhuis grew up in Holland, travelled all over the world, finds her fascination in the art of landscape painting. With her love for the still wide open landscapes, the big rivers and the Wadden area with the splendid clouds, she shows the things that matters to her and moves her.  Inspired by the Dutch painters from the 19th century and “The Haagsche School” she paints by observation and creates her own compositions in restrained colours, with the effects of light and dark as the binding factor resulting in a balanced harmony, turning away from the fine finish and detail.
 

Doll, Cordelia

Germany

Painting

Since 2001 I work as a freelance artist, exhibit both nationally as well as internationally and live close to the town of Dortmund, Germany. My paintings are characterized by a base of sculptural elements, which provide a wide range of shapes and three-dimensional impressions. In a certain way different images within the image come to live and develop their own magic enchantment. Mostly a bright central colour, finalized in various shades, reunites the variety of natural forms and recomposes them again. My art works are intended to set free new and stimulating impulses to their observer.
 

Duin, Marga

Netherlands

Painting

Color is the impetus in Marga Duin’s abstract paintings. Working from her seaside studio in Zandvoort, the Netherlands, she reaps continual inspiration from the waves, the beach and the capricious weather. The quality of her nudes is interesting, she selects parts of the figure to render, then she stops and chooses another selection of the body to delineate in a neighbouring area of the image. Marga works with a selected group of models; male and female.
 

Dunbar, Ann

France

Painting, Embroidery

It was thirty years ago when Ann studied Art & Design at degree level with Honors at Unversity of Farnham, England.,where she discovered her love of water color and her personal style of using embroidery on paper. Her success in marrying these two skills as her own signature of work is outstanding and very unique worldwide. It is a beautiful technique which gives extra-ordinary life to all her landscapes and to the more stylized collection of her more recent work inspired by her trips abroad like, Australia, India and China. These diverse cultures stimulates Ann’s imagination into creating original and exotic compositions with the use of gold leaf and metallic threads.
 

Fiorentino, Matteo

Italy

Painting

Matteo Fiorentino was born in Vico del Gargano (Foggia) in 1953. Painter and art teacher, he has since early youth revealed his predisposition for painting, and he began his search with the modern figurative. The artist had his first exhibition in 1981. “In Matteo Fiorentino the natural is a pretext to make painting in a continuous job of digging and analysis, searching emotions outside the banality and predictably ‘beautiful’ of a photographic figurative, and from the nice souvenir imagery”. He has recently created a cycle of informal naturalistic artworks.
 

Fioretto, Giovanni

Italy

Painting

The canvas is the dissecting table where I dissect, separate and reassemble the body for reinventing it as a geographical area, in which the boundaries are overlapping and indistinguishable. I retrace anatomical geographies where organs overlap with other organs. Usually the gateways are a nostril, an intercostal space, a dental arch, which remain as only external body parts. A re-invented body to express the madness, pain, orgasm, death, life, fragments, verbally indefinable moments that I try to capture and comuincate only with the force of painting.
 

Fleming, Kiki

Italy

Painting

I live in the mountains high above the Upper Tiber Valley in Italy. Each day at dawn, I bid farewell to the night and observe the rise of the sun between two lofty peaks. The sky’s transition from darkness to daybreak is breathtaking. When night sets in again, the moon lights up the valley, revealing the silvery contours of the hills, deepening the ebony of the mountains against the darkening sky. These sights are a constant source of inspiration. My colours come from nature’s pallet but I never work straight from nature. My approach is more oriental and meditative. I prefer to memorize what I see and digest what I feel. I let the subject transform itself by filtering it through my mind. What happens on the canvas is not a direct reflection of reality but an emotive expression of captured time and inner space
 

Flønes, Anne Grete

Norway

Painting

During the years, I discovered that I had a wealth of bright colours inside me, and I see that I am a pronounced colourist. I paint based on what I see, and so I pick out what I want forward and catches it on the canvas. Strong bright colours are important to me. The motives are not planned. They evolve through the grinding process, before it suddenly appears one or more subjects. It seems like a final stage is often a start of a new process. The painting undergoes constant transformations. 
 

Ford, Mark James

England

Photography

My initial photographic work is represented by my trademark wide panoramas of cities or landscapes. These hand stitched works, which really invite you to ‘step in’ and walk through the image, have found their way into many private and business collections. Nevertheless, it has always been the colours and structures to be found in nature, as well as the underlying chemical processes that lie behind these, which has fascinated me and nature photography is my opportunity to show the awe inspiring beauty of the natural world as I perceive it.
 

Forlani, Rob

Australia

Painting

My work is an exploration of the relationship between mind and tangibility. On first glance it seems like pure abstraction of form and colour; not quite landscape - not quite realism. Interpretation is in turn the conscious control of our emotions.
 

Futter, Andreas

Germany

Sculpture, Painting

A notable component in the sculptures of Andreas Futter is the struggle with the forces of gravity and the endeavour for equilibrium. The artist plays with instability and stability, that elemental demand on each corporeal-sculptural formation, which no sculptor can escape from.
Andreas Futter holds a mirror in front of us and proves himself as discoverer of absurd situations. His figures are engaging portrayals of our imperfection. He lives and works as a sculptor and painter in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany.
 

Gokay, Bahadir

Turkey

Painting

Bahadir Gokay graduated from the Department of Graphics in the State School of Higher Education of Applied Fine Arts-Istanbul, in 1982. He was a student yet when he started working as an art director in distinguished advertising companies. He established his own company in1984 and became the creative director of many significant brands. His unique style consists of strong figures, design concern and clear colours. He continues working in his atelier in Istanbul and also gives drawing and painting lessons at Erenus Art Gallery.
 

Guldager, Birgit

Denmark

Painting

Light is always a theme in my paintings. Living in Denmark where light is scarce for many months, I feel really thrilled and inspired when the sun is high in the sky. The absence of light may also motivate me to create a painting filled with light and vitality to spite all the darkness around me. I relate to happiness and sorrows in my own life in the same way. Paintings with the brightest colours may be created in moments of distress when I want to fight what is troubling me. I am not interested in depicting what actually meets the eye; I am more interested in subconscious dreams and evoking an atmosphere of both drama and harmony - of life.
 

Haga, Ulla

Finland

Sculpture

The ideas for my sculptures come from everywhere, from different things and situations where I have noticed or experienced some interesting detail in positions or movements which start to fascinate me and gradually will be formed in clay and finally in bronze. In my latest works I have examined different aspects of the life of a woman from Madonna like goodness to manners and bad repute of a prima donna. I have also further tried to precise my style by getting more lightness to my works and therefore many of my latest works have got a light green patina. This combined with a shiny surface gives in my opinion more lightness to the burdensome motif of many of my works.
 

Hansen, Nina

Denmark

Painting

Painting is for me the ultimate way for me to express my feelings. My style of painting is abstract and modern. It ranges from calm to more forceful and expressive. I am very experimental in the process of painting, so in case I feel the urge to change direction, I do not let my self be bounded by the imagination of the finished work.
The joy and the experience of working with a painting, along with the satisfaction of the finished work, which enables onlookers to jumpstart their imagination and happiness, is of foremost importance to me.
 

Hart, Kathryn

USA

Painting

Kathry Hart is an abstract and figurative expressionist painter living in Colorado. The heart of Kathryn Hart’s work is deeply personal but the stories are timelessly relevant. Ms. Hart’s iterative process of construction and deconstruction reveals the painting’s history, the artist’s journey and her ultimate belief in renewal. “A painting with heart should come from the gut, expose a piece of the artist in a very raw way. My works reflect the human condition, all of its crags and crevices, what we want others to see and what we hide…who we are when we are alone and our endless ability to rise from the ashes. I am guided by feeling, not a specific image in my head.”
Ms. Hart actively shows her work in New York City, the West Coast and internationally. She has received numerous awards and is represented by New Century Artists Gallery (NY, NY), Xanadu Gallery (AZ), Trevisan International Art, and other galleries and museums by invitation.
 

Hebert, Hople

USA

Painting

My inspiration comes from family, friends and pleasure of life. I appreciate exploring the use of colors, mixing many together to achieve a depth of honest beautiful tones. The challenge is applying colors in a delicate combination to achieve the right feel. 
 

Heitmar, Nadia

Switzerland

Painting

Over the years, Nadia Heitmar has developed her own, unmistakable style. She uses up to 30 different coats of paint in her works and in this way always allows new formations to evolve. In spite of a desired abstraction, Nadia Heitmar's works are often associated with landscapes. Powerful colours and lively structures, as they can be found to a large extent in nature, are intended to lead the viewer into far-off expanses, the contours of which are only suggested. The ideas for her abstract acrylics evolve from observations in daily life and on travels.
 

Hermans, Bert

Denmark

Painting

The main theme of his work is industrial and cultural heritage. Sources of inspiration for his paintings are abandoned and often ruinous buildings. He records these often before demolition by photographs and sketches. These are worked out in his atelier at the Vest in the historic city centre of Gouda.
Use of colour and use of light make his paintings special events. Dark disconsolateness are changing into light and warmth. Regularly he adds characters into his paintings that provide another or an extra dimension to the image, like brides, monks and observers. The tension in their relation is sometimes nearly tangible.
 

Holten, Ragnhild Adelheid

Norway

Painting

Adelheid Ragnhild Holten paints in the northern part of Norway, inspired by the Arctic`s changing seasons. “My work is a study of painterly processes where the painting occurs in a dynamic balance between liberated action and intellectual scrutiny. The result is an abstract understanding of figurative elements from the northern Norwegian landscape which I am exposed to daily”.
 

Hopkins, Karen

Australia

Painting, Sculpture

I was born in England and I have lived in Asia, South Africa and now Australia. My abstract paintings and quirky sculptures draw on themes inspired by nature, interactions, emotions, journeys of life and virtues within us. Using colour texture form and rhythm my aim to take the viewer on a journey and explore the deeper levels that connect us all. I have been exhibiting as a professional artist since 1993.and have works in many corporate and private collections both nationally and internationally. 
 

Huy, Simone

Netherlands

Painting

I look for the tranquil beauty within the hectics of everyday life. I find peace on a deserted beach, in a rustling forest or in the vastness of the heath. The pristine moves me. It helps me to focus on the essence and to capture that on canvas. Then I submit myself to the smells of oil paints and the scraping sound of the palette knife. I love the craftsmanship of it.
 

Jackson, Maz

UK

Painting

Born in East Anglia, UK, I’ve spent my life with my family, drawing and painting in this locality. The Norfolk landscape and its people enrich my imagery which can be interpreted in many ways and relate to many cultures across the globe. I continue to exhibit and be collected by galleries, museums and private collectors across Europe, Japan, China, USA and Mexico. My work continues to evolve. I have a deep interest in traditions of practice, in colour, line, mark-making and edge. Imagery springs from anything that excites: communication, laughter, touch, tension, flight, landscape, the spaces between and things sacred.
 

Jinnah, Nadiya

USA

Painting, Sculpture

Born in Uganda of South Asian origin, I have lived for many years in the West. This blend has created a cultural richness within my soul, that I explore in my paintings. For me, making Art is not only a way to express myself, but also to comprehend life. I call my work ‘Lifescapes' and begin by exploring my personal inner space, then extending out to the external landscape. I start with a clay surface to create a three-dimensional drawing. This sculpting allows me an infinite variety of textures and depths which I use to physically express the essences of organic landscapes. The impression is then transferred onto an acrylic canvas. Lastly, I use color on this very tactile background to create a subtle illusion and an experience of reality beyond the physical world.
 

Kammerer, Maria

Austria

Painting

Today I enjoy the groundless bubbling of feelings and the complete lack of time while I am painting. I let my feelings flow freely and love to explore the diverse languages of art. My pictures are made up of different materials such as coffee, earth, glue, sand or different kinds of paper - resulting in a spontaneous creative process. By frequent overpainting and the use of chalk and charcoal I try to make my paintings alive. For about three years I have expanded my horizons again and since I also paint on glass for partitions, kitchens and lights. Creating art means for me to bring myself into the work with my whole heart.

Kempe, Jane

Australia

Painting

The ocean is my muse. Being born in a coastal village, I love the constant movement and colour of my surrounds. Ships gliding up and down the channels and the quiet underworld of reefs and rockpools. My paintings are Summer experiences in all their vibrancy. The creative journey began with representational images particularly bright, breezy yachts, their spinnakers blazing against the sea and sky. Gradually, abstracted concepts of these experiences entered my pictorial language. Using Impasto techniques allows me to layer colour with texture, quickly expressing the sheer joy and playfulness of my method.

Kilpela, Pirkko

Finland

Painting

My paintings are conversations between my soul and surroundings, between colours and forms. Figurative changes to abstract - and vice versa - during my painting process. The final result is usually something between those. I don’t plan ahead; I let the artwork lead my painting. My works of art are often emotional reflections of surroundings and experiences. It’s peculiar that I realize the primary source and the story of my painting not until it’s finished. For me, art is about beauty and harmony, views to inner and outer space. My constant aim is to create an artwork where the apparent simplicity hides a subtle equilibrium of reflections and colour.
