...The artistic universe of the Slovak artist Monika Sabo is at the very least surprising or extraordinary.
Dreamlike or particularly realistic, it gathers, individuality, human crowd,..
Those are Singular-Plural Gaze which can express such, pain, love, passion as well as emotion, sadness and ... joy.
Original works with crucifying faces, the expressed words of Monika Sabo overwhelm and take us away.
How can one express this necessity of the exploration of the self without harassing our deep faith in others?
For the artist, the unreality of dream, and thought, spring up in her works or gazes; portraits and bodies are but noisy cries, vectors of the ordinary or silence of the immortality!?....

Painting is an adventure, an obsession, a journey".
Jean François Berjoan describes his expressionism as the bearer of movements, irrepressible and impulsive; such as "a path of light to be discovered, to be overcome .... to be recognized".
He sometimes dares not say his commitment and yet it is there, decisive.
The poetry of his words is there, indiscernible, but real and powerful.
Jean François Berjoan is a painter and sculptor living and working in Paris, France; his work has been or is being exhibited in several countries.
Celso Gonzalez Casado is a humble but profound artist, in a persistent search for expression.
« He shifts playful » the movements of the matter, the colours and their reflections.
Free of mind, he is able to embrace the perceptions of a pleasing abstract gaze, soothingly chaotic, with astute visual nuances.
Graceful in all manner of expression, the pattern of his colours strike by their tenderness, justness and perhaps even unexpected impactful accents.
Their lyrical forms form an intrinsic rhythm ranging from raw figurative to abstract poetry.
And so, she expresses herself, lively and poetic,...without restraint !
Her work is precise and yet it suggests a freedom of vision.
Bodies are there ¡ Women, Men are alive, dreamed, loved, free...
Laurence Bertini twirls and structures, she wishes for some indolence and yet paints the movements, the poses ¡
Hugo Duras ;
Artist, painter and sculptor, Hugo Duras "writes" a unique expression abiding by his own grammar.
He enjoys a hide-and-seek of shapes, forms, materials and colours.
He is able to intertwine different techniques and media, mixing figurative and abstract universes.
His paintings are clearly influenced by the post-impressionist and surrealist period of which he is particularly fond of.
His hand is free, he creates numerous "scenographies" or a few life " details " perfectly improvised with a somewhat candid, child-like and poetic allure.... Young and Old alike can then make up their own stories, their own poetry...
Finally, he breaks the "fourth wall" which stands between his scenes and us, the viewers.
So, we enter an surprising universe, alive and of multiple perspectives which are never still...
IVAN BUENADER #PAINTING
« ...My plastic work seeks to abolish language and, at the same time, relies on it.
It addresses original thought, not ideas. It overvalues symbols and then devalues them. It sends messages to intuition, in addition to reason. It seeks to observe the symbols in space and their interrelation, as well as to investigate the nature of the materials and their background or origin, without forgetting the importance of the title in the work and the historical-cultural context. in which it fits.
Through my creative writing, as well as my drawings, paintings, performances, photographs, videos and installations, I seek to help people understand why they do what they do, through the analysis and interpretation of our designs and their origin, as well as how to promote critical thinking and poetic experimentation with the world.
I have realized more than 35 collective exhibitions and 5 solo exhibitions and exhibited in Mexico City, Alicante, Montevideo, Buenos Aires, San Diego, Toronto, Dallas, Paris, Prague and Bombay among others. I have written 12 novels and 6 books of poetry... »

We might prefer to forget how much art can disturb us.
For Catherine S. Wolff, there is no such question. Her painting does not aim to disturb nor reassure. It is a breath, a plane of existence leaving her to be undisturbed, rightfully so.
She paints harshly, just like she breathes: nothing harsher than her forms and themes.
And yet, approach this woman, her laughter, "enaurme" will prevail.
No apparent anguish or pathetic refrains. She comes and goes, in real life, light as a feather.
Not her paintings, which exhibit that which could not be otherwise, permanently. Painted, this depth of work, stirs up the unspoken face, and exposes a raw and naked material, undressed, unfiltered.
The barren sex and fear.
From what the brush seizes, one may fear the worst; but this is never done without a purpose or foreword. A marking, idiosyncratic event, prompted this environment, sentenced to death, sentenced to love.
Has some lover, maybe some injustice wounded her ? Then Catherine S. Wolff will swiftly settles scores, as in duel. Dual? No, she is but a single piece, whereas those she strikes get twisted. The negative aura emanating from her work should come as a surprise! However intimate it may be to her, they are not to be confused: her painting are separate, more wicked, more accountable of reality.
However a connection does exist : "Humor ". Humor in the face of love, humor alongside love. Laughter let her to approach this sex we don’t know how to witness without it being spitted in our face, bitten, gazed at. Our sense of correctness will be unleashed; but Art, has preceded it. And assumes it.
Omnipresent, sex of this Art, is it hate or love? It is above all an preservation of action, aiming at the essential: the nudity. This nudity which, smaller ground of agreement, capture the truth. Is there art more bare than this one ? Suspension of time and the sexes. Is the relationship between men and women made to suffer ? Who is afraid ?
"Who is afraid of Catherine S. Wolff?" Frédéric Amblard
The expression of my painting has its deep roots in my consciousness and in mystical art.
Art has never been for me a superficial appearance of reality; it is a subtle and ongoing dialogue of the mystery that expresses itself through the creation.
This experience of the inner worlds transmitted through the symbolic shapes like voids and circles using different materials like sand, organic elements found in nature, wax, gypsum, fabric which leaves my consciousness, my spirit in spontaneous action.
DJÉNINA HAGENBURGER #PAINTING
« ...I was born in Paris, France, in 1974. In 2016, I decided to leave my hometown to settle in the countryside and thus enjoy a larger space for creation.
Previously, I had been a Flamenco dancer, joining the dance company “Andanzas” from Raquel Gomez. Like the singer Lole, accompanied by Manuel and his guitar, sung it so well : “Todo es de color”… and the transition to my second life was on.
Since 15 years, I am deeply involved in the practice of painting and creating installations.
My painting is the mirror of a kind of intrigue, deeply rooted in me : the space.
The space to be built and even more to be optimized to bring out, by associating colors, shapes and meanings, the punk poetry that dwells in me.
I realize today that what fascinated me in the art of Flamenco is the unusual mix between strength and grace, Orient and Occident, ancestral and firmly anchored in the present moment, beautiful and rough… it’s still leading me in my artistic approach.
Both disciplines telling the same : « I am here, I exist and this is what I propose »... » Djénina Hagenburger
