Tree of Life (Arbol de la Vida), 2018, acrylic on linen, atlas map collage,  28″ x 28″

Carlos Rodríguez Cárdenas, born in 1962 in Santi Spiritus, Villa Clara, is one of the important Cuban artists who came to contemporary art spotlight in the mid-1980’s.  Since that time, his exile in Mexico in the early 1990s and settling in New York, his work has been known for its exquisite and ironic artistry, inviting the viewer to question reality and see beyond the world of the official word imposed by the system.

In his most recent work, Cárdenas rekindles the nature and landscape of New York and depicts the megalopolis in a more sobering new order with a balance of Cartesian-like geometries. His pictorial conventions are characterized by subtle counterpoints, mysticism and rationality, the yin and yang of the natural and urban environment.

Cárdenas is in major collections, including Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Peter Ludwig Museum, Cologne, Germany; Ludwig Forum for International Art, Aachen, Germany; Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale; Museo Provincial de Santa Clara, Villa Clara; and National Museum of Fine Arts Havana, Cuba — as well as many private collections.  He has exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions at GE Galeria, Mexico; Galeria Nina Menocal, Mexico; Galeria Ramis F. Barquet, Madrid, Spain; Fredric Snitzer Gallery, Coral Gables; and ARCO 93 International Art Fair, Madrid.  Group shows in which he has been featured include the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Perez Art Museum, Miami; 1989 Havana Biennial; Stadtische Kunsthalle,Dusseldorf, Germany; Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno, Las Plasmas de Gran Canaria, Spain; and Samuel P. Hart Museum of Art.  He earned the Collective Prize Cuban Painting, awarded to participate at the First Biennial Jaume Guasch, Barcelona, Spain. Cárdenas completed his arts studies in 1983 in Havana’s Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA), and currently lives and works in New York City. 

Lien Truong

Lien Troung Mutiny

…and still we banter with the devil, 2017, oil, silk, acrylic, antique 24k gold leaf obi thread, 19th century American cotton on canvas, 72″ x 96″

Lien Truong’s art boldly investigates ideological models of our history and culture.  In her most recent works, she combines the Hudson River Valley School “western” landscape, gestural abstractions, cultural textile designs, and compositions from Asian war prints.  She mixes layers of images and departs from a standard visual experience.  Truong’s landscapes and figures, culled from the historic and recent past, present “narrative histories” through a type of blended painting.  Truong (MFA, Mills College) currently lives and works in North Carolina.  

Truong has exhibited her work at such institutions as the National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC; the Oakland Museum of California; the Weatherspoon Museum; the North Carolina Museum of Art; and the Pennsylvania Academy of Art.  She has participated in artist residencies at the Oakland Museum of California and the Marble House Project and has received reviews and mention in several publications including New American Paintings, ARTit Japan, and Art Asia Pacific.

RIME was born in 1979 and grew up in Brooklyn, Staten Island and New Jersey.  By the mid-1990s, he had emerged as one of the most passionate and dedicated graffiti writers of his generation, and in the twenty-seven-plus years since then, he has become one of graffiti’s greats.  Drawing on an extensive knowledge of graffiti’s history of lettering styles and techniques, he has a visual vocabulary and versatility with letters nearly unparalleled worldwide and has held his own on walls with the best of the best.

RIME has a knowledge of and facility with the entire vocabulary of graffiti lettering styles that is nearly unparalleled worldwide. He can paint pieces in what seems to be nearly every style from throughout graffiti’s fifty year history, yet they always feel fresh, not derivative, and always his own.  Brooklyn born, Staten Island raised, and longtime New Jersey resident RIME’s playful, character-filled work is full of color and movement, and from simple to complex, from soft to jagged, he is one of the few who can truly do it all in graffiti. If he can’t, his alter-alter ego, quasi-performance artist JERSEY JOE probably can. 

RIME’s knack as a graffiti writer is much like that of a great jazz musician: he is able to elevate everyone’s level of play with his presence.  At this point in his life, RIME has painted alongside as many of the greats of graffiti as anyone, and he’s brought out the best in them. With a background of such versatility and strong individual performance, RIME moved to California from 2005 to 2013, becoming part of the great Los Angeles crews MSK and AWR.  Culturally, the more laid-back collective attitude was an adjustment: the abrasive, assertive energy that comes with an upbringing in New York City that didn’t always fit in.  But RIME was more active than ever, with the weather making for a pleasurable year-round experience.   

When it came to studio work, the dynamic was very different. While he had made works on canvas before, he felt at something of a dead end, and RIME wanted to go back to basics before moving forward again.  In great demand to paint and appear at graffiti events, where he would endlessly sign fans’ black books, RIME originally focused on what was portable and familiar, working on paper and finding the direction he wanted to pursue.  After resettling back in New York in 2013, he set up a formal studio practice for the first time, cut far back on travel, and focused his energies deeply into new bodies of studio work while still actively painting outdoors. 

RIME’s new studio works are dynamic, with the swoops and loops that he had perfected in graffiti with a combination of spray paint and sublime muscle memory and bodily control able to convey an emotional emphasis.  His signature cartoon characters peek out from the bends of these swoops, often reduced to suggestive figurative elements.  The color schemes of his outdoor pieces, were, like any graffiti writer, made with whatever happened to be in the bag of paint that day, far out in the field, and often that meant wild pieces with dozens of colors.  Yet his studio works pared these schemes down to a few well-chosen colors that played brilliantly together.  Like his graffiti pieces, RIME’s studio works are composed in a format meant to be read: figurative images are often presented in profile or in action, carrying a sequential order through the image, an algebra of image, phrase, and meaning.  

RIME had always been pro-organic, anti-artificial, in his work.  You could see it in the graffiti: the sacred radius of the swing of the arm, the full dip in the knees and waist to a crouch.  Never to measure, never to tape off, instead to use the sacred geometry of the body, of the confidence of style, of the moment, to divine proportions.  But in a recent DMT experience he encountered a sense of how technologically coded our minds and existence are. He experienced what felt like an artificial, full color, three-dimensional program.  He reconsidered the notion that this life, the universe, and consciousness was of organic origin. He felt the ones and zeros, the perfection of right angles, the grid structure undergirding the cosmos, and he began to work with what he had once closed off.

Transparent II, 2017, oil on canvas, 47″ x 31″, 120 x 80 cm

Per Adolfsen lives and works in Odense, Denmark, where he was born in 1964.  His earlier work comprised emotionally charged acrylic paintings that seamlessly merge representational and abstraction and text, and engaged the viewer in a seductive world of fantasy and uncertainty that recalls classic Scandinavian angst.  His most recent contemplative oil paintings, a marked break with his prior series, demonstrates his evolving commitment to using the medium as tool for breaking past stereotype and false exteriors in order to know other people and one’s self.  The neutral palette and minimal backgrounds in many pieces allow the viewer to be fully focused on the people foregrounded in the paintings and punctuated by moments of brilliant color—a lavender head scarf, crystalline blue eyes.  Adolfsen’s recent portraiture points the way toward an ethical vision by seeking to represent the colorful bonds that tie people together.

Gustavo Acosta

Gustavo Acosta


Gustavo Acosta was born in in Havana, Cuba in 1958.  His intensely hued portrayals of sites in Havana, Miami, New York, and the Middle East feature rectilinear overlays of strong, intensely moody colors that integrate multiple allusions to reason and its traditions — the ideal planned-city street grid; the Golden Ratio and its long history as a supposedly true and self-evident compositional principle; the sharp-edged, no-nonsense Bauhaus aesthetic — with subtle references to the small flashes of vitality and inspiration that lurk within even the most drab and desolate environments. His canvases engage with neglected, antiquated, and somber settings, in the hope of revealing their meaning and living purpose for the present.

Acosta’s work is in many major institutions, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, MOCA; Lowe Art Museum; El Museo del Barrio; Frost Art Museum; and Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes.  He completed his arts studies in Havana’s Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA), and currently lives and works in Miami.

Whitehot Magazin Review October 2017






Bernard Ammerer

bernard ammerer

Interface, 2015, oil on canvas, 180 x 180 cm


Ammerer’s pointed and ironic titles often hint at the somber thread of disaffection that ties his works together. Interface—a six-foot-square canvas depicting a constellation of nondescript young men in jeans and t-shirts frozen mid-leap in a white void—is most notable for the palpable lack of physical and psychological interaction among its inhabitants. Fulfillment Problem—that bland euphemism from the realm of online commerce that so often signifies corporate ineptitude and consumer frustration—is paired with the image of a cloudy yellowish sky overrun with a chaotic, maze-like swarm of identical running figures lifted from a Children At Play traffic safety sign. The infantile and perpetually unsatisfying urge toward instant gratification that’s satirized here is subtly underscored by Boyhood, which presents the sad and wistful disembodied head of a child floating alone in a dark, nebulous space. It’s the only place in these works where an actual face can be seen, and its stark difference from the other canvasses hints at an irrevocable loss of naive serenity that no hoard of shiny toys, transient pleasures, or wanderlust can amend. The moral—for Ammerer’s oblivious protagonists as well as us—is perhaps best embodied in Home, with its ghostly white house at the end of a blank path in a barren field: far too often, our ill-considered quests away from ourselves in pursuit of the Next Perfect Thing leave us alone and exhausted before a hollow apparition.

Bernard Ammerer (1978) lives and works in Vienna. He graduated University für angewandte Kunst, Wien in 2010 and is the recipient of the Strabag Art Award.  Recent exhibitions include “Vorher Nachher” Galerie Frey Wien (solo), Dagong Art Museum, Qingdao (group), “Subjects” Galerie Drees, Hannover, (group) “A Better Place” Galerie Frey, Salzburg (solo), “You Choose” Berlin Art Projects, Berlin(group).

Susana Guerrero

susana guerrero


“My artwork comes from a daily experience where I create a contemporary mythology that puts on a same level the physical reality, the oneiric material of dreams, the subconscious, magic, the offering, the visible and the hidden reality that surround us.

“A reformulation of ancient mythologies that merged together become part of my artwork in conjunction with my personal experience of the sacred through mythical stories, traditions and legends, rituals, superstitions and intuitive revelations.

“The process of making the artwork it’s like a ritual; the choice of every material, the configuration of every shape, of every element, brings a poetic meaning and symbolism to the artwork. The process as exorcism, the transformation of physical pain as purification of the body and the spirit, its laceration as the offering to the miracle of life.”


Susana Guerrero lives and works in Elche, Spain, where she was born in 1972. With artistic scholarships of residency she has expanded her studies in Greece, Mexico and Germany. The traditional mythologies form these cultures have marked her artistic practice which is fully imbued of the spirit of their mythologies, lives with them, making them her own and expressing herself through the characters and stories that populate her works.

Guerrero’s oeuvre has been been featured internationally in galleries and major institutions, including Museum of Antioquia, Medellín, Colombia; Center for Visual Arts Development, Havana, Cuba; Museo Arte Moderno Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Museum of Contemporary Art Guatemala; Cultural Center Spain, Miami; Instituto Cervantes, Tangier, Morocco; Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany; Kunstlerhaus, Munich, Germany; Charpa Gallery, Valencia; Deposito 14 Gallery, Madrid; Punto y Línea Gallery, Oaxaca, Mexico; Gallery Casa del Lago, Mexico; D.F.

José Angel Vincench

josé angel vincench



“I suggest, perhaps absurdly, that Vincench’s idiosyncratic constructions are symbolic self-portraits—highly personal expressive assertions of his individuality, both as an abstract artist and autonomous individual, in subliminal defiance of a tightly controlled society and authoritarian ideology. In On the Spiritual in Art Kandinsky held idiosyncrasy in high esteem, arguing that it was a sign of genuine, unique personality. However ironically, Vincench is a spiritual artist in a materialistic society, all the more ironically because he uses the most socially valuable as well as spiritually significant of all materials to make his art.” — Donald Kuspit, from a forthcoming essay on Vincench

José Angel Vincench was born in 1973, in Holguín, Cuba.  He completed his arts studies in Havana’s Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA), and lives and works in Havana.

Piers Secunda

piers secunda

Piers Secunda was born in London, 1976, and lives and works in London and New York.  He studied painting at Chelsea College of Art in London.  Secunda has developed a studio practice using paint in a sculptural manner, rejecting the limitations imposed by the canvas. His intensive research based work, split into distinctly separate groups, explores the driving forces of both passive and aggressive human needs: examining the effects of violent geopolitics on both people and culture, by moulding bullet and bomb damage from war zones and the sites of historic conflicts, to make works.  And recording energy history using crude oil as a printing medium, to examine post industrial revolution developments, both cultural and technological, which define our world today.

Secunda’s aim in life as an artist is to make records of the time in which he lives. Making a record of the violent attempts by ISIS (the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) to erase our collective cultural heritage in the Middle East is a matter of real importance and urgency to him. For this reason he traveled to the front line of the war against ISIS in Iraq in 2015 to cast ISIS bullet holes.

“Occasionally a moment occurs in which it is worth taking the risk to travel to a dangerous place. This was one such moment.”

In Art Historical terms, Secunda’s work reminds of Picasso’s “Guernica” and Goya’s “Los Desastres de la Guerra” but in a Postmodern minimalist way.

Elio Rodriguez

elio rodriguez

Elio Rodriguez was born in 1966, and lives and works in Spain.  His practice is engaged with the system of judgments about a person, a culture or phenomenon.  Tapping the prism of Caribbean popular culture, its underlying humor and clichés formed about the culture, he builds witty and sensual works that seemingly incarnate that reality, and subtly and continuously question it.  The ambivalence of genres is key to understanding the essence of his work. Rodriguez conceives a game of illusions with the viewer using the language of form and surface — and ultimately reveals traces of doubt in the identity of a concept or an image.  His practice encompasses painting, installations, sculptures, prints, ceramics, and soft sculpture interacting with chosen objects, his  style referring to marks of Caribbean popular craftwork.

In 1994, he completed his arts studies at Havana’s Higher Institute of Art (ISA).  He has been awarded Art Residencies at Hutchins Institute, Harvard University, at Mattress Factory Art Museum, Pittsburg, and given lectures at Harvard University, NYU, and Swarthmore College.  His artwork has been displayed in several solo and group shows around the world. He is in public collections such as National Arts Museum, Cuba; Jersey City State University; Foundation AMBA, Brazil; Hainaut City Hall, Belgium; Peggy Crafitz Collection; Center For Cuban Studies, New York; Von Christierson Collection, London; Shelley & Donald Rubin Collection, New York; W.E.B.

Danny Rolph

danny rolph


Danny Rolph, born 1967, lives and works in London.  Rolph’s triplewall and canvas paintings construct their grammar of signs through material engagement and unprincipled investigations into the history of the ‘pictorial’. Driven by a unique approach to color he consistently produces compositions with attitude and visual dexterity.

Rolph’s exhibition of a new body of work made over the last year showcases the artist’s signature Triplewall paintings.  A continuation of his visually impactful paintings, these new works reflect his evolving exploration of high velocity color and layered narratives.  The compositional potential of his painting strategies on Triplewall plastic allow the viewer’s senses to be fully engaged. The paintings are layered and emotive, combining paint, drawings and collage with art historical and Pop Art references.

 Rolph’s work is in many private and public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and Tate gallery, London as well as the Duke and Duchess of Westminster.  He recently completed a large installation for Facebook HQ.

Diana Copperwhite

diana copperwhite

Diana Copperwhite’s work stems from an idiosyncratic practice that embraces the temporal nature of painting practice. This encompasses working with large-scale wall installations, large canvases and an ongoing interest in the human portrait.  Born 1969 in Limerick, she studied at the Limerick School of Art and Design from 1987-92, received a BA in painting at the National college of Art and Design, Dublin and went on to do an MFA at the Winchester School of Art and Design, Barcelona.  Copperwhite is engaged with a sustained conceptual exploration of memory and abstraction. Using identifiable subjects, and sometimes drawing on media images, she plays with light and color to create slightly unreal dreamlike and transitory compositions. The mood of her work is generally lyrical, creating an air of ambiguity of memories transformed in the unceasing passage of time.  In a most unique capacity, she works over recognizable images, working and reworking their surface and adding rich layers, so that objects are transported in an entirely new direction into a fluid visual quality of being remembered or reimagined in singular vibrant ways.

Her work is in public collections, including Irish Museum of Modern Art; Arts Council of Ireland; Limerick City Gallery of Art; Office of Public Works; Contemporary Irish Art Society; Mariehamn Stadbiblioteque, Aland, Finland; International Red Cross Netherlands — and private collections in the US, Australia and Europe.  She has exhibited widely, including in London, Dublin, Tokyo, Sydney, Amsterdam, Barcelona, New York. France and Amsterdam.  Copperwhite was awarded the AIB Art Prize in 2007, which resulted in a major monograph and touring exhibition of her work.  Her recent publication Fake New World was published to coincide with a wall drawing and recent exhibition at the RHA Gallery Dublin, it features a recent biography written by Gail Levin. Her work is held in many important public collections including the Office of Public Works, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Arts Council of Ireland, Limerick City Gallery of Art, as well as private collections in Ireland, across Europe and in the United States.  She was a resident artist at the Josef Albers Foundation Connecticut (2012).  She was a finalist in the Guasch Coranty Fundacio Painting Prize, Centre Cultural Metropolita Tecia Sala, Barcelona (2008) and was winner of the AIB Art Prize (2007).  Diana Copperwhite, born 1969, lives and works in Dublin.

Nadja Verena Marcin

Nadja Verena Marcin


Born in Würzburg, Germany

Living and working in New York and Nordrhine-Westphalia

Nadja Verena Marcin is a performance and media artist who focuses on human behavior, elemental emotions and psychological responses linked to role-playing through video, performance and photography. Inflated by playful, vigorous images, poetical texts, and handmade props, her work exposes ambiguities depicting the constructive/deconstructive potential of man’s characteristic, often dialectic behavior. Marcin confronts elemental emotions and unleashes psychological mechanism, exposing truths about morals, history, gender and politics inherent in Western culture.

John A. Parks

John A. Parks, born 1952 in Leeds, England, is a painter who has shown widely in the US and England over the last thirty years. His work is represented in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Royal College of Art Collection, the Museum of the Rhode Island School of Design and many private collections.  He received his M.A.(R.C.A.) in Painting from Royal College of Art, London, England (1973-76), and his B.A. in Fine Art from Hull College of Art, Hull, England (1970 – 73).

Beginning with his meticulous but lyrical realist paintings in the late seventies Parks has concentrated on themes of English life and the broader issue of the relationship between personal and national identity. A long series of delicately romantic paintings in the eighties explored the English obsession with the transformational properties of gardening and landscaping.  In the late eighties and nineties Parks shifted his attention to British public imagery where he applied a whimsical, playful and sometimes alarming painterly attack to undermine and decode some of the nation’s most preciously held icons. 
ln recent years Parks has been using a finger painting technique – literally painting with his fingers – to explore the imagery that occupied his imagination as a child.  Paintings of trains, hunting scenes and monuments have recently been superseded my images of schoolyards and the pursuits of boyhood – cycling, exploring, fighting and camaraderie. “The recent work is all executed from memory,” says Parks. “And in using finger painting I’m using a childish method to explore childish things. For all that, these are far from childish paintings.  I’m amazed at the rich surfaces and evocative properties of the pictures I’m able to make this way. They are starting to feel like the very stuff of memory.  I’ve never been more excited about what I’m doing.”
Parks is currently working on a series of Putti paintings.  “Ever since the Romans dreamed them up putti have accompanied many kinds of imagery.  Rediscovered by Renaissance painters, they appear in countless works throughout the centuries, cheerfully mirroring and often exaggerating grownup behavior. Having worked on narrative paintings for the last few years, I’ve recently been using putti because they give me the opportunity to explore human gestures and interactions in a way that is playful, sometimes bizarre and strangely universal.   Using them often feels absurd or wayward but the possibilities for invention, humor and insight into human behavior seem compelling.  Putti are also mysterious beings; in the end none of the painters who used them knew who or what they are.  Neither do I.”

Ian Hughes

ian hughes


Ian Hughes’ paintings probe an artistic vein in which naturalistic forms shape-shift on top of a flat color-space.  He explores the psychological and emotional link between the brain and the viscera, forming a kind of connective tissue with the viewer.  Fluid, intertwining, and semi-transparent forms exude a bodily presence while suggesting a tangle of shifting associations. Hughes seduces with sensuous textures and a luscious palette of chromatic pinks, yellows and turquoise blues modulated by pearl whites and carbon blacks.  For Hughes, the color field is a stage on which to choreograph a visual and psychological drama.

Hughes’ work has appeared in numerous group shows in New York City, including featured exhibitions at The Drawing Center (Selections 31) and a White
Room exhibit at White Columns (1991) curated by Bill Arning. In 1998, Artists’ Space featured three large Hughes paintings in an exhibition celebrating its 25th Anniversary and curated by Irving Sandler, Founder, and Claudia Gould, Director. Hughes received his B.A. in 1981 from Yale College, where he also attended the Yale Summer School of Art at Norfolk, CT, and his MFA in 1984 from Columbia University School of Art.  He was selected for a solo booth in the 2012 inaugural edition of UNTITLED: Miami, curated by Omar Lopez-Chahoud.  Hughes lives and works in New York City.

Tatjana Busch

tatjana busch

Tatjana Busch creates unique metal sculptures that she crushes and re-forms to display facets and folds that emerge through “guided” accidents.  The works exude a flare for the fresh and unexpected that resonates with fresh cross-narrative relationships between surface geometric patterns and the overall biomorphic configurations
