Nature and geography have something in common: their boundaries are put in place by humans and are all but made up. Takashi Harada dissolves these natural and geographical boundaries in his artwork. For Takashi, all natural things have a common and equal value. When in nature, he believes, you connect back to it one atom at a time. Born in Japan, Takashi’s international existence made him face his Japanese identity as well his identity within the natural world. His art reflects that feeling, blurring natural light and color in ethereal paintings that merge harsh divisions and avoid representation in favor of capturing feeling.
Jacqueline's work stems from her acute fascination with surfaces often overlooked in our natural and urban environments. With the use of paint, concrete and other building materials, she creates abstract, sculptural paintings that mimic these surfaces and call up nostalgia, ephemera, and the dichotomy between beauty and imperfection. Her paintings rely on themselves - on time and all the elements taking hold of them.
Rebecca has a MacGyver-like talent when it comes to painting, using a blend of different textures, patterns, colors, and handmade brushes to create her complex landscapes . Her work balances a hyper-intelligent sensitivity with a free flowing and spontaneous expression. If Rebecca’s paintings were school children, they’d be in the gifted and talented program (but then probably be kicked out a week later for using shortcuts to do long division).
When you challenge Ahavani's unidentified objects, they will challenge right back. Under the guise of rock or metal, they are actually made of canvas - carefully shaped right to the moment between growing from within and being hit, twisted, or eroded from outside. So let your eyes follow the incredibly complex curvature like an ant just discovering another dimension. It testifies to the poetic nature of interacting with materials after relinquishing the need to identify what, why, and where from.
Is there something prophetic about Saskia Fleishman's name? Because...pardon us for the terrible pun but her landscapes are fully fleshy. In a twist of fate, fluid and ethereal things like cloud or waves of the sea have been built up with sand, while backgrounds of striking techicolor recede away from the material world.
As a process-based artist inspired by Earths ever-changing surface tensions, Renee explores the manipulation of paint, and layering of color, to achieve sculptural like results that droop, ripple, crack and pool on the canvas. Further engaging the elements of heat, wind, water and gravity, she pushes paint to its limit, allowing each color to display its individual ‘signature effect’, which is studied, layered and re-worked to reveal highly tactile and seductive surfaces that characterize her contemporary color field paintings.
