Steve Stratis - Abeyant
Many of the world’s marvels go unseen, whether due to the flow of time or being beyond our perception. Steve Stratis’ work centers around bypassing these limitations - giving the viewer a glimpse of how matter frozen in time and invisible phenomena may appear. Stratis fuses digital techniques such as 3D sculpting and VFX (visual effects) to apply a stylistic spin, resulting in a unique abstract-centric aesthetic. Steve aims to inspire a greater interest in physics and further appreciation for the many powers that shape our world.
Pernel Berkeley - Upon My Return - acrylic on wood
(oil on canvas)
48'' x 52''
Pernel Berkeley began her career as an artist in New York. Over the years she created a collection of works consisting of shaped wood panels of one or more pieces, painted with acrylics. The sculptural quality sets up the interplay of form and pattern with color and texture, so as to constitute a unique visual language.
Lothar Janssen - Verwebung (Studie)
29.7" x 21"
Lothar Janssen Since 2020 Freelance artist 1984-2019 High school teacher for fine art and German studies in Krefeld, Cologne and Duisburg 1984 Examination for teaching art and German studies, Essen 1953 born in Krefeld Exhibitions since 2020 Kunstkabinett, Duisburg-Rheinhausen Tana Art Space, Venice Schlossgalerie, Mönchengladbach-Wickrath Galerie 35blumen, Krefeld Städtische Galerie, Duisburg Urbanside Gallery, Zurich Kaiser-Wilhelm-Museum, Krefeld and diverse online-galleries. The drawings are part of a series of images entitled "Interweaves". Monotypes of textile fabrics such as hessian, linen or wool form ordered, but at the same time fragile, irregular, curved lines with an intense structure and form. With these natural, seemingly organic forms, I have drawn geometric, strictly structured forms that contrast with each other. The respective design language is thereby emphasized, visible.
