  • Joseph Adolphe  (+)

    Biography : Was born in 1969 in Calgary Alberta, Canada. He lives and works in New Haven, CT where he is a Professor of Fine Arts at St. John’s University. He is an artist and academician. Adolphe moved to NY in 1992 to attend the School of Visual Arts, after attaining his M.F.A in 1994, Adolphe went on to participate in over 40 exhibitions in the United States and Internationally. Joseph Adolphe’s oil paintings echo anxiety and vulnerability in the modern day. Whether they are beaten down fighters, agile and stoic beasts or innocent children, his subjects appear burdened by conflict and the weight of the world. Nonetheless, they are strong, resilient characters, as their confidence and bravery give the paintings an undeniable optimism even when the subject is dark. Strength and individuality are measured by their ability to endure the hardships of their personal confrontations with the world. While the trajectory of Adolphe’s paintings follows this same course there is nevertheless an illogical optimism reflected in the confident and powerful force of his marks and colors, as if to say that, ‘in spite of the downfall of the proud, we still stand, bloody and marked, broken, but beautiful.’ “Over the past 3 years or so I’ve been trying to paint not just the created thing, but the forces that shaped the created thing.” Joseph Adolphe

  • Marcus Egli  (+)

    Biography : Egli is one of Switzerland’s most successful sculptors today with his distinctive work in aluminum. Starting with raw aluminum, he heats, hammers, saws, welds, and polishes each piece by hand, making each figure unique. Marcus Egli creates aluminum figures which he calls «Hominium». He questioned about our relationship to the world and our relationship to our history. His themes are universal, anonymity, loneliness and multiplicity. His artistic process refers us at our own image. Egli (b.1957 - d. 2016) started producing his humanoid artworks in 1985, initially working with bronze and iron but eventually bewitched by the bright, lustrous spirit of aluminium in which to create the metaphorical manforms he calls ‘hominiums’. Each is unique - from the forge, they are machined, hammered, blasted and brushed by hand. Each has an individual appearance but lacks a character: their faces are blank, but polished to a mirror sheen to reflect the viewer. Egli has created many public works and permanent displays in his native Switzerland: for a bank in Neuchâtel, for the council chamber in Neuchâtel, the Arts Museum in Le Locle, and in Môtiers. His work has also appeared in advertising campaigns for Swiss watches and American Express. Egli was born in Zurich into a family of craftsmen, and though he studied precision engineering in Le Locle, the heart of the Swiss watchmaking industry, he instead bought with his wife Rita a business fabricating aluminium hardware. At a young age Egli saw a documentary about Auschwitz – images of machines pushing bodies into mass graves, of row upon row of uniform humans, dehumanised into mere shapes of people. His modern work decades later echoes this: they are presented in crowds, in regiments like soldiers, in cages, buried up to their necks in concrete, trapped in nets. The metaphor stretches beyond its genesis in the concentration camps and into the modern world, where men live trapped in the boxes of their homes, the restrict

  • Charles Fazzino  (+)

    Biography : Charles Fazzino, creator of 3D Pop Art at the end of the seventies, was born in New York in 1955 where he still lives and works. For over 30 years, Charles Fazzino has enchanted us with his three-dimensional representations of colourful, playful and glittering worlds. The New York artist and creator of the 3D Pop Art movement, initially focused on his city, painting with extreme detail and in a very recognizable style with his districts, inhabitants, taxis and frantic life… In the following years, he turned to other American, European or Japanese cities. Sports, cinema and medicine are among his favourite themes. His artistic process includes several sketches to begin, then he creates an original painting from where silk screen prints will be made, hand-cut and glued in layers. Charles Fazzino is often referred to as a pop culture historian because of the breadth of his work and the way it touches his collectors and captures the best parts of their contemporary lives. His legacy will mark him as part of the next generation of famous pop art artists as he follows the paths originally forged by pop art pioneers like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Red Grooms, and Robert Rauschenberg. He has been presented in Paris for fifteen years.

  • Julien Graizely  (+)

    Biography : Julien Graizely, born in the Ardennes in 1980. He lives and works today close to Royan. Installed near Royan, the spectacle of the seaside during the summer remains an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Characters, sketch with a fast gesture and without concern of the detail, devote themselves to the joys of the beach overcame by the heat. At this chapter titled Surexposition (Overexposure), the artist adds today a new one on New York where he regularly goes for two years now. With large and rapid black lines, he represents the density and the dynamism of this city that never sleeps when long run-outs accented the verticality of the buildings. Julien Graizely works on paper today. He explores and plays with space, time and knowledges which he masters and diverts by a lively and free gesture. From its paintings to its delicate drawings with infinite lines remains the contrast, the light and the vibration. Contrast of the lines. A graphic line, sure, empty but vibrating silhouettes outlined with graphite, superimposed moments. And then, the impulse of the gesture: the scrawl which erases, the scratch which hides or fills, this thick and powerful black line which replaces a head who think. Julien Graizely furrowed much the French cities throughout his formations (art metalwork in Avignon, visual communication in Royan, Ecole Boulle in Paris after having obtained the “Prix du Travail et des Apprentis” in 2001). It is in Paris that the inspiration comes to him.

  • Volker Kühn  (+)

    Biography : Volker KÜHN was born in 1948 at Neuenkirch (Germany). He lives and works in Lilienthal. Object Art might be said to date back to the cartouche of ancient Egypt, a framed hieroglyphic message to posterity. Its more immediate ancestors are maybe the medieval rebus or picture riddle, the camera obscura and camera lucida, Poussin’s praesaepe, a miniature stage used to establish perspective and figure groupings, […], the dioramas so beloved by the Victorians through the glazed cabinets, cases and boxes of Marcel Duchamp, Kurt Schwitters, Max Ernst and other Surrealists. The interest of three-dimensional graphic, as opposed to sculptural, subjects was revived with the coming of Pop art and now finds a contemporary expression with the art of Volker Kühn. After several exhibitions in Japan in 1986, Volker Kühn decides to put away his tools of engraver and to give a form to his ideas. Appear then “the Objects”, small scenes in three dimensions which report the joys and the sorrows of each man. These instantaneous of life makes smile or even laugh the person who looks at them because he finds himself in it. The themes approached are innumerable. The artist shows in an ironic way the stereotypes, the human weaknesses with which we all are confronted. By preserving a certain distance with its subject, he succeeds in reconciling the spectator with his own defects, his joys, his desperate search of the love or his aspiration for success. Nothing escapes the sharp glance of Volker Kühn, which by his humour and his friendly irony reveals us an important feature of his personality. The picturesque language that his speaks is universal.

  • Eric Roux-Fontaine  (+)

    Biography : Eric Roux-Fontaine was born in 1966. He lives and works in Lyon. Eric Roux-Fontaine is a creator of marvelous dreamscapes. Convincingly constructing fictional realms and alternate realities, he renders the surreal and fantastic by strategically borrowing from conventions of the familiar. The artist, like the nineteenth and early twentieth century painters before him, goes on «grand tours» around the world—particularly Central America, Eastern Europe, and India—for inspiration. During his travels, Roux- Fontaine has developed a close relationship with the Romani and Borucan communities, who greatly inspire his works. In contrast to the bustle and excitement of his travels, Roux-Fontaine paints from a secluded cabin studio located in the expansive jungle of Central America. He is artistically inspired by historical greats such as Eugene Delacroix and contemporary painters like Peter Doig and Miquel Barceló. He likens his dreamlike perception to other forms of creative expressive, such as the literature of Alejo Carpentier and João Guimarães Rosa, the poems of Tsigane Tajko Djuric, and the films of visionaries like Emir Kusturica, Wim Wenders, and Jim Jarmusch. He states that he is «on a quest to find the source of where dreams find their imagery.» His unique style falls somewhere between Rococo and Fauvism, employing a colorful airy quality that, at the same time, is thickly built up. This allows for the surreal yet grounded visions he produces that are usually reserved for our dreams. Eric Roux-Fontaine is a multidisciplinary artist who works in a variety of media, predominantly painting, but also, film/video, photo, and installation. He was born in 1966 in the Savoy region of France. He enrolled at the Fine Art School of Saint-Etienne at the young age of 17 and graduated Suma Cum Laude 5 years later. Since his first solo exhibition in 1991, he has enjoyed sellout shows and overwhelming success throughout Europe. Then in 1995, the Musée des Beaux Arts of
