28 October - 26 November 2020

Our emphasis is on our artists being Intimists. That is we only represent women 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.

This exhibition is different from the previous ones for the reason that we decided to include some men artists as well. We took this decision to show that we do not discriminate against men. We made a selection of some men artists, who we think merit very much to be seen, admired and discovered.

Partial Preview:


A very promising young painter, currently still a student at A.B.A, painter. In his work we often find the compositions of still life’s of shoes that he treats in his subjects as brand image, witness, apologist for the life of man; of his personality, his social rank and his Journey "the buffalo dies but leaves their skin dying; thus the man dies, and

leaves his mark and his reputation." in nature. The idea of painting the shoes came to his mind for the first time, when he wanted to immortalize his shoes that have crossed with him a whole year and to paint them was a way for him to show his gratitude towards them, while seeking to circumvent the artists relevant to these subjects in particular Vincent Van Gogh in his series of shoes and Charlie Chaplin in his film of the gold rush which were for him source of motivation... So he said to himself: "If men have languages, shoes have them too, they are part of the vestiges which bear witness to the life of the person who put them on”. In short, it is an apologue of its owner and the latter by wearing it lends it its form, so they also bring its suffering; then it becomes the imprint of the person and reflects his personality.
