CONTEMPORARY ART FROM TOP INTERNATIONAL EMERGING WOMEN ARTISTS

Our emphasis is on our artists being Intimists. That is we only represent artists who work alone without assistants, who's work has intimacy, that we can feel the person behind it, the touch and the closeness, someone's hand, that individual touch. As communication now days is all on the phone and the Internet, we represent artists who reach out for something more personal.

EXHIBITION CATALOG

LOUISE VILLA

is a Swedish Painter, born and living in Sweden.

She obtained her BA degree in design and felt deeply connected to minimalist Scandinavian design. At 25, she moved to Kerala in South India, and was influenced by the lavish and abundant expressiveness she found there.

Hence, when she began painting after she moved back to Sweden in 2013, she saw that her work was informed by both forces of minimalism and maximalism.

 

When she paints, she seeks for truth, meaning, beauty, and curiosity. Inspiration comes from different directions, whether it be a color in nature; a story she hears; or a specific expression or movement she observes in a person. When she starts a new painting, she has a strong sense of the ambiance she wishes to mediate – she believes that the exact motif is inferior to the feeling.

Since 2013, she has been showing her artworks at many juried exhibitions: group/solo shows in galleries, art halls and art centers in Sweden.

CARMEN ISASI

was born in Bilbao in 1958, where he studied Fine Arts at the University of
Bilbao, and obtained a degree in the specialty of painting. In the eighties he worked in his studio in Bilbao, making his first individual and collective exhibitions.


Thanks to a scholarship from the Basque Government in 1990 he moved to Madrid to study the Master in Aesthetics and Theory of the Arts at the Autonomous University. He participates in the Current Art Workshops of the Circle of Fine Arts, with Nancy Spero and Chema Cobo, being selected to be part of the Proposed Exhibition 92. Since then he has carried out numerous national and international individual and collective projects and exhibitions.


He is a multidisciplinary artist, who works in photography, photogravure, drawing, collage, photocollage, painting, artist books and video art.
He currently resides in Madrid, Spain.

MALGORZATA JABLONSKA

is an artist and an educator born in Poland from Polish father and Russian
mother. She grew up between Polish and Russian cultures and was influenced by both. She has obtained a B.A. and M.A. degree in Fine Arts at Akademia Sztuk Pieknych in Warszawa, where she focused on painting and drawing. In 2006, she studied Ceramics at the University of Westminster, and has since been based in England.

When she works with clay, she is reminded that the human condition is one that is both complex and simple. She usually uses the technique of coiling which she enjoys as it allows her to build her piece slowly. Taking time over the creation of a piece is very important to her as it allows her awareness to settle into the process of creation in a very organic and mindful way. She likes to see what the clay wants to reveal as she follows her instincts. 

Her art is almost abstract, inspired by nature and its biological forms, by light and organic structures. Through her work, she endeavours to express the mystery of reality, of its variability and its singularity. Her sculpture forms are like individual living organisms on their own, unique entities representing physiological or psychological processes such as breathing, bonding, joining, rooting etc.

She is currently teaching ceramics at the Working Men’s College, Brunel University and other Adult Education Centres. She has taken part in several exhibitions, and her work has been exhibited in several galleries such as Officinet, (Copenhagen, 2011), Apple House, (Skealskore, Denmark, 2011), 118 Gallery, Notting Hill Visual Arts Festival (London, 2010), and Chilterns MS Center (UK, 2019). 

VI TRINH

Vi Trinh is a first generation Vietnamese-American she works in digital and traditional media to examine the relationship between ecological and social patterns. As a contemporary conceptual artist her work explores ideas of rich aesthetics in ecological emergencies and the temporal reality created by large-scale phenomena. She synthesizes data to confront ideas of colonialism and white supremacy within our current social context. Vi Trinh graduated from the University of Richmond in 2019 with a B.A. in Visual and Media Arts Practice & Leadership.


1% for the 1% began as a sculptural synthesis of lactose intolerance data overlaying a map of the world, as a response to White Supremacists chugging milk to prove their genetic superiority. It evolved into a representation of colonialism and the historical factors that affect capitalistic discrimination. The sculpture transforms into monolithic photograph as an idealized portraiture of capitalism.

ROSIE LLOYD-GIBLETT

studied Fine Art and majored in painting in the early 1990’s. After completing her University Studies in Art and Secondary Art education she spent 8 years working and travelling in Southern Africa and remote Indigenous communities of Northern Australia. She now resides on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.

Rosie has a regular art practice that is energetic and responsive to the landscape, her work is usually drawing, painting and mixed media. The imagery she creates are from both internal and external sources. The works usually start from a mental snapshot of a place or a fleeting emotion. She lives on the Noosa River and enjoys the shadows and the ecosystems that are at her back door.

Rosie regularly works plein air, working quickly with energy and freedom. The initial mark making and contour drawing take her on a journey of line, shape and space.  Large canvases and paper blowing in the wind gives oxygen and a sense of place to her work. She then returns to the studio to resolve imagery and ideas; turning images upside down and sometimes tearing them apart. The landscape is ever changing and continues to inspire her art practice.

The works have a physical relationship with the surfaces: “I want the viewer to move and discover their feet in the artworks and get into tune with the natural world”, says Rosie. She expresses the magnetic energy of walking up mountain ranges, visiting the outback and exploring the coastline.

SOPHIE MANGELSEN

As an artist and psychologist, Sophie Mangelsen expresses the duality of the mind, the psyche, internal landscapes determined by harmony and dysharmony, balance and imbalance. Inspired by that duality her works reflect in a contemporary informal art style an impulsive yet

tranquil sense of being.

Born in 1991 in Berlin, she studied Psychology at Université Paris VIII and at Universität Leipzig. Inspired by her professional experience as a psychologist and ongoing training as a psychodynamic psychotherapist and art therapist, her work reflects conscious as well as unconscious paths of mind.

The values of painting led her to experimenting with various techniques and material and evolving throughout her artistic career. Dedicated to the exploration and the freedom of the abstract form, she employs bold forms of colour and process to create. Her current works are all acrylics on canvas in bigger formats.

She participated in various exhibitions (Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Slovenia, Bulgaria), won some international prizes (e.g. European Competition) and had her first solo exhibition in Paris 2018.

She lives and works in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg with side-trips up to the Baltic Sea.
