ARTIST STATEMENT
“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.

JOSE ANGEL VINCENCH

 

Jose Angel Vincench – Works available on Artsy (link)

 

“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 – Works available on Artsy (link)

 

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 – Works available on Artsy (link)

 

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. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research, Harvard University.

Danny Rolph

DANNY ROLPH

 

Danny Rolph – Works available on Artsy (link)

 

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 – Works available on Artsy (link)

 

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 Alexander Parks

 

 

John A. Parks – Works available on Artsy (link)

 

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.”
