Brian Harte (b. 1978) graduated with 1st Honours his BFA at the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork, Ireland. Harte works often with large-scale canvases and is concerned with the investigation of composition and the relationship between abstractionism and figuration, relating to the tradition of the British painting. One of the main characteristics of Harte’s paintings is his bold use of color and the indeterminate condition of the canvases’ figures, which remain in a state between the sketch-like and the finished. Tough this process is already perceptible in his earlier paintings, it notably became a grander concern for Harte in his latest works. The observer’s eye travels through the richly detailed and chaotic spaces depicted in Harte’s paintings and slowly and repeatedly finds familiar elements, unnoticeable at first glance. A tile pattern in the background might recall a kitchen backsplash, for instance, whilst elsewhere you might detect the outline of something like a teacup or a knife. This identification, that requires a certain amount of time and effort to happen, is not a solid one: quickly the observer finds himself again wondering through the painting, confronting these figurative elements with the flatness of Harte’s backgrounds.

USD 13.000,00

Gina Beavers (b. 1978) comes from Athens and is since long based in New York. She has a BA in Studio Art and Anthropology and an MFA in Painting and Drawing. The primary source of her canvases is contemporary visual culture and our virtual existence in the time of social media. Working before with references taken from the original pop movement of the 1950’s, Beavers evolved to paint the 'current pop', starting to search on social media posts for image templates to her extravagant canvases. Beavers' anthropological interest in society translates in paintings that explore the banality of internet: makeup tutorials, the so called food-porn pictures, body builder selfies, etc. In tune with the eccentricity of her subject, Gina Beavers maximises the visual potential of her medium, taking tridimensionality to its higher possible level and bringing painting closer to sculpture. In 2019 Beavers had a solo exhibition at MoMA PS1.

Habib Farajabadi
Untitled Painting #017

acrylic on linen

unique

USD 15.000,00

Habib Farajabadi (b. 1982) comes from Iran and is based in the country’s capital of Tehran. He paints with acrylic and uses all available tools such as nails, wood stock, forks and hair brush next to the regular paint brush. The marks left by these tools disguise now and then as vague hieroglyphic signs, ancient calligraphy, letters of non-existing alphabet, sometimes even suggesting a figure. Farajabadi paints on both sides of the canvas, but much of the surface is left raw and visible and one can often detect exposed cloth’s amendments. Where there is a conscious choice of using color, he’s not economical: Farajabadi often prefers bright, strident tones. His acrylic brushstrokes remind, in their texture and ludic colors, childish chalk. Either that or the canvas is taken by a dark atmosphere. The color black’s always present, sometimes as dominating hue, others supporting a colorful composition. The thought-through composition is evident in his whole body of work. His drawings, as his paintings, reveal a moving balance between strong, highly defined lines and soft areas of paint application. Farajabadi’s work has been exhibited in Iran, Germany, Denmark, United Arab Emirates, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy and USA.

Irvin Pascal (b. 1987) has a BA in Architecture and a MA in Fine Art, both acquired at the University of Brighton, in his home country. His output is varied: he works with performance, painting, drawing, sculpture and photography. His paintings are made from of different organic materials and paint, a combination that generates texture variations and lends the works a collage appearance. Pascal’s figurative canvases deal with his African-Caribbean family roots and his personal path, for instance, his past career as a boxer. The artist also references himself in his works by using a unique paint, which he calls Pascollar, made of a mixture with his own body hair. The artist was one of the Bloomberg New Contemporaries for 2017.

USD 18.000,00

Kour Pour (b. 1987) is a British artist of Iranian descent with a BFA in Arts and Design. His work consequently investigates the ideological constructions of what we call the West and the East. Pour works in Los Angeles, mainly with paintings, where he explores the ideologies and cultural constructions of the West and East either by appropriation and highlighting of iconic symbols derived from oriental civilizations, or by experimenting with traditional Asian techniques. In the past years Pour has worked, for instance, with the Japanese ukiyo-e technique that captured the interest of many Westen artists in the past such as Van Gogh, Degas and Gauguin. Geometric Painting 16 is part of his series Geometric Painting, where he inserts monochromatic portions over oriental scenes that resemble illuminated manuscripts. Thus he combines a historical and cultural specific moment - the figurative Orient - with the ahistorical question of painting’s material - paint and color. Through these monochromatic sections Pour also references abstraction, the culminating point of modernity, where color stands for itself and art is made for art’s sake.

Serge Attukwei Clottey (b. 1985) is a Ghanian artist based in Accra. In August 2019 he received the award of Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the University of Brighton. Clottey works across installation, performance, photography and sculpture, exploring narratives of personal, family and collective histories, which often relate to trade and migration. His drawings, made of raw materials such as charcoal and pastel have a cubist quality but, unlike western modernism, Clottey’s perspective is not European. In his figures one sees that the artist is depicting his people, since these erotically charged images clearly show African men and women.

Clottey works across installation, performance, photography and sculpture, exploring narratives of personal, family and collective histories, which often relate to trade and migration. He is best known for his gallon works. These are wall sculpture pieces, net-like objects that are made of several plastic fragments stitched together. These plastic fragments come from (mostly) yellow gallon containers, used by some populations in Africa to collect and store water, when access to piped water is nonexistent. Through cutting, drilling, stitching and melting found materials, Clottey’s sculptural installations are bold assemblages that speak to the international art market as well as to the particular social reality of many people in Ghana.

Umut Yasat (b. 1988) lives and works in Karlsruhe, Germany. Between 2009 and 2015 he studied in the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe with Gustav Kluge, Jonas Burgert and Marcel van Eeden. In 2014 he started to work on a personally developed artistic practice that he calls Der Stapel (the stack). At first this process encompassed tiding all of the artist’s previous works together and then it evolved into the agglomeration of not only works of art but also several everyday objects both meaningful and trivial. Yasat works on these sculptures until they reach his own height - a self-imposed limitation, which is merely a material necessity, since he cannot work on an endless Stapel without separating it into segments. Therefore, his sculptural pieces are in fact all parts of one continuous work of art, of one life-long Stapel.

Zachary Armstrong (b. 1984) is a self-thought artist working in Dayton, Ohio. Armstrong's output is moderately varied; he has a predilection for painting but sometimes also works with sculpture, drawings and other media. The point of departure of Armstrong’s art is his own world: his childhood, his family, natural history books he encounters. However, with secret references to his personal universe, his works also evoke some larger context, such as the idea of American countryside, folk art, and the grand tradition of American and European modernism. One of the most particular aspects of Armstrong’s works is the texture-full encaustic technique, which gives the works a sculptural quality. Regarding this the artist himself speaks of “building” his paintings. Contrasting with this material structure, his recent series White Line provide little direction for the eye. Here Armstrong’s compositions become increasingly fuzzy, challenging the viewers, requiring their pupils to be in continual motion. These works seem to contain a coded message about the person that created them, once again referring to personal aspects of the artist’s life, as it happens for example with the letters “KEYDOSZIUS” that represent the maiden name of Armstrong’s mother.
