Kevin van Braak - Holland
Kevin van Braak - Holland

Kevin van Braak’s work is set around politically and ideologically problematic issues. In recent years, he turned his attention to the visibility and invisibility of the display of power in buildings, people, location, and artifacts and how our historical consciousness functions in relation to the history behind it.

Paul Kaptein - Australia
Paul Kaptein - AustraliaPaul’s work remixes the immaterial into the material, language into disassociation, the artists into the VJ – creation only happens when the natural flow is interrupted – when light is pulled in, when matter is enfolded, when stars die and babies cry. The spaces allow us time to catch breath. Paul’s work, though remixing the present, gives us (at least) two turns to capture the moment.

Janet Echelman - America

Masami - Japan
Masami - Japan

To create my artwork, I like to experiment. For me, this is the simple beauty: a transition between the aggressive material which is the human life and the brightness of every human spirit. This is not just about my art process; it is also my way of life.
I believe in pure beauty. This beauty touches us and takes us into many hearts.

Keith Calder - South Africa
Keith Calder - South AfricaCalder sculpts both realistic and stylized forms. The realistic, figurative work is born out of his close association with nature. The more recent stylized, almost futuristic, work stems from the same source but explores new avenues of expression.

Federico Uribe - Colombia
Federico Uribe - ColombiaBorn in Bogota, Colombia, Federico Uribe lives and works in Miami. His artwork resists classification. Rooted in the craft of sculpture and paint, it rises from intertwining everyday objects in all possible and surprising ways, but still with a formal reference to the history and tradition of classical art.

Rodney Glick - Bali
Rodney Glick - BaliGlick's work at times feels laidback and relaxed but the more you delve into it the more complex and enigmatic it becomes. Such is the way of the guru and the artlife of the bodhisattva Glick.

Jeremy Mayer - America
Jeremy Mayer - AmericaI was born in Northern Minnesota in the US of A in the 1970's. I moved to Northern California in 1990. I have no formal art training. I disassemble typewriters and then reassemble them into full-scale, anatomically correct human figures. I do not solder, weld, or glue these assemblages together- the process is entirely cold assembly.

Ben Foster - New Zealand
Ben Foster - New Zealand

Ben Foster draws upon the physical landscape of home with his static, stylised figurative works mirroring the dramatic forms of the mountains which are his backdrop. Similarly, his kinetic abstract sculptures echo the restless coastal waters and winds which swiftly reshape the stony shores.

Peter Gentenaar - Holland
Peter Gentenaar - HollandI bring my love of nature, its materials and my fascination with technique together in my work. Coming from a painting orientated culture, I found in paper fiber a material closer to nature and with much more character than I ever found in paint.

Henrique Oliveira - Brazil
Henrique Oliveira - BrazilLives and works in São Paulo. Oliveira apparently blows up a free-floating loaded brushstroke so that it achieves architectural scale. Since nothing quite like this is in fact possible, our experience of the work on site comes with a built-in double-take, as our sustained examination begins to reveal the extent to which such an elaborate construction possesses a remarkable level of design.

Yeoh Choo Kuan - Malaisia
Yeoh Choo Kuan - MalaisiaYeoh Choo Kuan’s abstract paintings rely on figurative associations for the meaning to be legible. His earlier works display strong formal influence from Abstract Expressionism and Expressionism. The artist has stated that this new body of works, which is in a process of development, disregards the element of pictorial narration, which was previously a dominant feature in his works.

Gil Bruvel
Gil BruvelGet close enough and the architecture of an individual life reveals itself. There! High points, empty holes of loss, the spiral of circular questions, the sturdiness of solid beliefs. There I am, looking back at myself. I am inseparable from the landscapes, patterns, and flow of life that make me this way. Just as Cubism in painting radically rearranged the building blocks of perspective and introduced another way of seeing.
