GELAH PENN
American, born too young for Sinatra, too old for Teletubbies. Lives and works in New York City and Connecticut. Gelah Penn expands the language of drawing in sculptural space. By deploying simple synthetic materials in site-responsive installations and constructed drawings, she foregrounds internal formal and conceptual contradictions: cohesion and fragmentation, balance and vertigo, minuet and jitterbug. Using plastic garbage bags, staples and Mylar, she examines the nature of shadow and visual ambiguity; the resulting expansive abstractions evoke narratives ranging from the ephemeral to the forensic. "My aim is to choreograph events of perceptual incident and psychological dis-ease. My hope is that this conflation of disparate parts—mark, shadow, geometry, gesture, concord, dissonance—results in some sort of vertiginous whole." Her great interest in film, particularly the uneasy territory of film noir, informs the work. "Situations: Zone 6 (Rockland)" 2017*
Mylar, lenticular plastic, plastic garbage bags, foam rubber, vinyl, vinyl & silicone tubing, copper and steel mesh, polyester, silk, Ping Pong ball, metal chain, metal staples, acrylic paint, metal armature, T-pins

Investigaciones en Azul XIIII 74 x 44 Enamel on canvas 2017
Ana Vila Lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
�Ana Vila uncovers a material from everyday life; she select it and explore it through her vocation/metier or during her time at her workshop. The painting and its drying times among the liquidity of the matter and the final solidification of the surface became an axis for the development of her practice. She works with the painting material (enamel) as the object; and the painting as a way to show the concrete presence of matter.

Trophies dimensions variable oil on unprimed canvas, taxidermy pigeon. Nicolas Vionnet Swiss, born 1976Lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland. Nicolas Vionnet’s primary medium is acrylic on canvas. His chiefly large-scale works play with space and expanse. Although almost always realistic, his paintings have more in common with abstract images than real landscapes. He paints disruptive grey strips across his clouds and allows colored surfaces to drip down the canvas in accordance with the laws of gravity.
Vionnet is fascinated by such irritations: interventions that approach and create a non- hierarchical dialogue with the environment. This discussion opens up a field of tension, which allows the viewer an intensive glimpse of both these phenomena.
Vionnet uses the same approach and the same strategy for his installations and objects. Irritation and integration. A fundamental confrontation with the history of a place leads to a subtle and more precise intervention of the object. Take for example his man-made grass island at the Weimarhallen Park (Weimar, GER), which ironically intensified the park’s own artificiality. In ‘Close the Gap’ (Leipzig, GER) he bridged the space between an old-town row of houses with a printed canvas image of the now much frowned upon prefabricated building. A reference to changes in time and aesthetics

The most controversial thing, 25cm x 38cm
Fabian Bürgy Swiss, born 1980 in Murten, Switzerland
Lives and works in Meyriez, Switzerland
Fabian Bürgy is a swiss based sculptor and visual artist. His diverse and playful artistic practice includes sculpture, installation and digital imaging. Minimalistic and paradoxical gestures dominate the work in which he explores the conceptual aesthetic of things through random encounters of materials and misplaced situations.
 His work is often inspired by a wide range of mundane objects which are then subjected to what could be described as a "slightly violent and disturbing process of transformation, misplacement and dysfunction of things”. Metamorphosis is a prevalent subject throughout his work in which Bürgy makes art do things it is not supposed to do. With conceptual rigor, satirical wit and manipulation he converts everyday experiences and common perceptions into minimalistic art.

Cristiana de Marchi
Italy/Lebanon, born 1968
Lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon and Dubai, UAE
Cristiana de Marchi’s practice explores social and political terrains, from memory, places of the past and present, identity and contested borders to the paraphernalia of contemporary nationhood. Using textiles, embroidery, film and performance, she instigates processes that draw attention to currencies of power by exploring their structures. 
These systems are interrogated by extracting the signs and symbols that constitute them. She lays bare the power latent in flags and their colours, passports, places, statistics, sociological models, words and letters. Focusing on often-overlooked details, attention is called to how the apparently innocuous every-day are the essence of larger structuring schemes. 
Having seized on a sign, she distils it, breaking it down into constituent elements through repeated and cyclical processes such as stitching and undoing or filmed transformations such as ice becoming to water and inflated balloons progressively expanding and bursting. Each process, each work, revels in the potential of progressive transformation. Words are physically expanded to bring focus on each letter in turn, suggesting the invested power of their signification. Flags are drained of colour prompting renewed consideration of their insignia. Maps are pulled apart, the gaps between the frames flooded with memory’s faults. Neutralised black and white maps elide borders and the apparently impenetrable thresholds of public and private spaces, demonstrating that that which seems unchanging has always in fact been fluid. 
Scrutinising etymologies, maps, spaces and the symbols of nations, de Marchi draws attention to their function as signs. By revealing their physical or symbolic composition, she outlines their position within greater structures, gesturing and implying the mechanisms of conceptual significance too. The explorations focus less on the complexity of what each means socio-politically or biographically, instead prompting considerations of how each has come to have meaning. Lingering on these symbols, their signification is unwoven; that which is taken for gra

Rotating 39.76 x 39. 76 in _ dry point on paper, plexiglass (unicum) CHARLOTTE PANN Austrian, born 1990, Salzburg/Austria Lives and works in Vienna.
Central objective of Charlotte Pann´s work is a deeper focus on the dimension of space and „the phenomenon of relation as a base for and as a result of spatial constellation“, as she states. The question for the quality and the variability of the surrounding space as a source of information as well as a medium of information, i.e. the alleged “nothing” in which proximity and distance, separation and connection are being shaped and dynamised, is the driving force of Pann’s artistic production. Pann, focusing on the potential of this space “in between”, aspires after creating positions that communicate interconnectedness, that should encourage response and that challenge points of view as well as the way of looking at things - positions that want to bring about a stimulus for constructive action.
Thus, depending on the particular communicative purpose, conceptual works of various materials and media are created in work series, frequently showing a certain sense of humor, vital power and gentle irony while grasping the essentials.

Central Park, from the series ‘Vacuum’ , inkjet print, archival paper, 32 x 47 inches (80 x 120 cm) Edition of 5.
Helene Koch
Helene Koch works with the surrounding spaces as a premise for her interventions. Her focus takes its departure in the boundaries between architecture, art and landscape, in which she questions how we perceive and experience common sites and well known objects. ‘My reflections concern our pre-defined expectations of certain places and locations, and I am attracted to investigating how we read spaces and how we enter them. By questioning obvious and yet unseen places in our daily life, I explore the boundaries of our views on ordinary locations and materials in our current life. When Koch does site specific installations, her chosen materials are characterized by being simple and inexpensive, where the original purpose of the product is reinvestigated. In the materials she uses, the simple textural potentials are important to her: When using porous materials, the durability and lifespan of the art work emphasizes the instant and embodies the ephemeral character of time within its surroundings. The ephemeral instant is what Koch seeks to capture whether she does site specific installations or staged photo documentary.

Domestic Somatic #4, photography 50 x 50 cm.
Maria Konstanse Bruun. Norwegian , born 1977
Maria Konstanse Bruun is intrigued by the uncertain nature of the boundaries between the physical and the metaphysical; the body and the mind, the past and the present and the public and the private self. She has gained attention for her performance-based photographic self-portraits where the physical body is juxtaposed with everyday objects in an absurd manner to symbolise some kind of a meeting point between the different aspects of the self. She has a keen interest in psychology and an academic background in psychology and social anthropology, which shines through in her art practice. Maria Konstanse says: “For me art is a way of exploring who I am and what my role in the world is”.

Golden Loser, 42”x38”x.5”, Plaster, spray paint, ink on felt.
Peter Manion’s work is diverse and moving. His use of non-traditional methods, materials, and practices gives his work an animative quality, lending variance and movement to what once was undisturbed brings the work closer to the idea of a living object. His sculptures represent transformation and decay, and challenge the ideas of art as only static beauty, while also exploring ideas of preciousness.

Brenda Goldstein
Canadian, born 1973
Lives and works in Durham, North Carolina
Brenda Goldstein’s works are influenced by landscapes: terrestrial, psychic, and other.
Her most recent works are collages that present as textured paintings using materials which are unpredictable and that sometimes rebel against one another. Found in these works is the labour of stitching and fraying, and, canvasses that have been cut and burned. A continuous attempt at solving unsolvable problems, she bandages and sutures surfaces to make inadequate repairs.
Other works present the bright colours of her environment using architectonic lines and curves in gouache, pencil and crayon on paper, or, encaustic and Plexiglas on panel.
Goldstein has also worked in sculpture; performance; and creating large-scale installations in film and video for which she has received prestigious Canada and Ontario Arts Council grants, and which have been exhibited internationally.

Static in the Portal, Oil and Acrylic on Panel, 48x42”, 2018
Victoria Wagner
North American, b. 1968
Lives and works in Northern California: Occidental and Oakland.
Victoria Wagner
In a physical sense, Victoria Wagner’s abstract work lies in perceptual space, vibrational color relationships and craft. Of this, she blames her formative years spent in the high Nevada desert where light was sharp and dramatic, the mountains governed the atmosphere and the sky commanded more peripheral vision than one is capable. Conceptually, her research combines historical and contemporary pursuits of knowledge that run the gamut from space exploration to automatic writing to transcendence.  She questions our eternal quest to conquer/understand the natural world using remedial, outdated tools and our attempt to comprehend human nature by the consistent application of psychological frameworks that are far too simple to measure the depth of complicated responses of which we are capable. Making the connection between the infinite nature of the cosmos and that of our boundless emotional landscape, Wagner’s work and practical research marry the esoteric, mystic, natural, mysterious and future possible. Her minimal yet unrestrained compositions (whether on panel, found wood or aluminum) combine recognizable geometries and color dynamic through natural, synthetic and industrial materials, layering the surface like a bold and complicated narrative in which one is often implicated by their own reflection in the pieces.  Her unlikely pairings and structural mark-making bear visual and vibrational relationships in the tradition of Agnes Martin, Frank Stella, Constantin Brancusi and Barbara Hepworth. She was recently included in American Craft Magazine’s issue on Wood.

Reduced void, 40x47inch, acrylic and textile on canvas and panelIva. 
Visosevic explore perceptions and al aspects of seeing as a series of fundamental questions that are philosophical in nature. This questioning always comes directly from her life, ultimately from the very human question: What is it that surrounds me here? What and how she transport that visual or non visual soroundings into her work. . Mistakes and contradictions in the understanding of the perception, for example through the play with illusion, deception and visual irritation are important aspects that influence the ideas and composition of the works, whether this is multimedial work , drawing or painting, she question the role and function of the picture and develops non-figurative painterly objects, the meaning of which is revealed through the act of observation. as an architectural element.
We can also perceive the space in front and behind the picture. The basic construction for this visual issue is the deconstruction of the structure and meaning of the object, the reconstruction of the absolute space, and the movement of the perceptual center within the gaps of the gaps.Iva Visosevic is concerned with finding expression for atmospheres and how to notate these things without using words and transfer them into drawing, painting or multimedawork...
Is not so important whether the things dealt with in the works come from within her or from outside. In the end this all remains the same space. To make these aspects communicable she utilize lines, colors, shapes and materials.  Emotions are important parameters of her analyses, since every idea or perception is influenced by personal feelings. 
Iva Visosevic is interested in the inner experience, attitudes, feelings, intuitions and visions and how to transfer them into visible reallity.
