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.

DISCOVER ARTWORKS:

Satya Cipta, Indonesia

in Sumatra and Java Island, Indonesia. She graduated from Jakarta Institute of

Arts on Performing Arts Department, majoring in Theatre. Satya’s works explore

a number of poignant social issues from a personal perspective, disharmony, a

social disorder of women in revolt; women who do not accept the role attributed

to them in Balinese tradition, women in revolt against the sexual violence of men,

women avenging the violence done to them. It is the painful sexualizing of

woman’s body that Satya’s questions.

Her technique is developts from Balinese traditional technique such as Batuan

technique, ‘sigar mangsi’ and using the Chinese wash layering. Satya had her first

throughout my artistic career in order to discover the universal balance

between the predictable and the uninhibited." Neelum Nand

He has made solo exhibitions and participated in many other group exhibitions and international competitions, in Greece and abroad (Italy, Germany, Spain, New York, China, Serbia, Bulgaria, London) and seminars. She lives and works in Thessaloniki.

 

"I am an artist whose artistic research ranges from painting to engraving. My work delves into human perception of landscapes expressing specific mental situations. They are interpreted psychoanalytically as "internal landscapes" or landscapes of the human soul. My paintings manifest internal dark landscapes in which beams of light invade via them. Thus, they reveal the figures besetting with the present situation of existence through the beholder’s eyes. My interest focuses on search of excessive truth which lies beyond our journey to material. The earthen colours and bold writing display my world showing a theme with rough and imposing touches integrating the surroundings either as internal or as abstract ones. All in all, the body of work is a meditation close to the brevity of human existence." Katerina Tsitsella
