KELLY REILLY, UNITED STATES

 

Kelly Reilly was born in the United States of America in 1993. Her intrigue with myth, metaphor, and the unseen is apparent in all of her work, which often deals with themes of birth, transformation, and death. She is known for her sophisticated vocabulary in camera-less photography: Discarding the use of a camera altogether, Reilly creates each photogram using only chemistry and light sensitive photographic materials. Because Reilly often works in complete darkness, there is an element of mystery and chance to each of her pictures. She is a graduate of Parsons School of Design, and her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions internationally. Her recent exhibitions have been in New York City, Miami, New Jersey, and Brooklyn. Her work hangs in private collections internationally, and she has been featured in printed publications throughout the United States and the United Kingdom. She has lived and worked in New York, NY since 2011.

New Jersey. She received her BA in Psychology and Economics from Omsk State

University in Russia. She completed her MFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual

Arts in New York in 2019 Kovalchuk’s artistic process is an exploration of her

overlapping experiences as a woman, immigrant, mother, and an artist. Her mixed-media collages use a combination of sourced and invented imagery to establish new, hybrid worlds. Kovalchuk has participated in group shows locally and internationally, including PROTO Gallery300 in Hoboken, Art Fair 14C in Jersey City, and Lankai Art Gallery in Anshan City, China. Kovalchuk is also a founding member of StartaArta, an organization that curates and organizes pop-up shows and panels to support artists.

IRINA TRUSOVA, RUSSIAN FEDERATION

is a Russian artist working in ceramics and art education, based in Moscow. Her journey in

ceramics started eight years ago after giving up a successful business career. Received her very

first degree in biology she is inspired by nature and the processes that occur in the Universe. She

experiments with different clays and firings and tries to follow clay in its natural manifestation.

She also owns one of the largest ceramic studios in Moscow where she teaches kids and adults

the art of ceramics.

Irina believes that functionality of any handmade object is first and foremost in its beauty.

Ceramics for her is a unique art, complicated in its technology, advanced in the process of

interaction with the materials and borderless in its expressive ability. She uses this perfect tool to

express her understanding of beauty, in its intimate intricacy. Through her work she expresses

her feelings and interprets surrounding world. She says that in a way she is “stealing” from the

nature, but because it is too boring to copy something, she creates her own imaginary worlds.

Irina’s path in art is not a straightforward thing. She opted out of getting a classic art education

and preferred to self-educate herself and to learn from the artists she found inspiring. She took

several pottery and stationary ceramic courses in Russia and internationally, and she constantly

continues her education. This multidisciplinary approach gives an additional advantage in the

creative process as she sees ceramics from different angles, educational, businesslike as well as

pure art. Having started as a functional potter, her work recently shifted towards large sculptural

forms, which she exhibited nationally and around the world.

She facilitated two international ceramics symposiums Baikal-CeraMystica (2018 and 2019) and

co-organized an educational course on fire-sculptures “Make your fire.” She participates in

ceramic symposiums and her work is present in private collections in Russia, Croatia and Italy as

well as in the collection of Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center, Denmark. She

sees her mission in making the world more beautiful through the art of making ceramics and

educating people.

JUTTA OBERHUBER, GERMANY

 

Studied at Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main, Germany , with Professor Thomas Bayrle and

Professor Raimer Jochims. She finished her studies with a degree in art and art theorie.

2005 to 2009 Jutta Obenhuber lived in Connecticut and in Texas in the USA. However, by

travelling to Tibet and Japan she was also influenced by the Eastern mentality.

Since graduating, she has exhibited internationally. Since 2019 she has been a lecturer at the

Frankfurt Painting Academy. In her artistic work she focuses on the essential things, on the

wonders of nature, on the play of lights, on the colored shadows, on the completeness hidden

in the details.

Jutta believes that the visual arts are a development of our visual process. For her, artistic

activity is an attempt to penetrate into the field of visible being and to appropriate it in a

designed form to consciousness.

It is important for her thinking that art cannot simply be translated into language.
