” Like music, art can create a strong emotional link with its audience, touching all senses at once. And just as an instrument can consume its musician, the canvas can overpower the artist, guiding him to paint what he truly feels deep inside. With each brushstroke, the canvas responds and leads you to the next stroke…each color, as each musical note, working synergistically to create a greater whole…, a final outcome that can profoundly move its audience. And as a symphony, the outcome of an artist’s exploration is more than what meets the eyes. Each stroke and each color lay a foundation from which to build upon…, a progression of one feeling to the next. My paintings have colors that play and work together underneath the surface to create an artistic expression of my feelings. There are no shapes, no boundaries…just an outpouring of emotion represented through color attempting to take you to an emotional plateau not yet realized before.” – Mojan Vadie

Canadian artist Adam Lupton‘s gaze explores psychological and sociological struggles in modern society. Painting in oil, blurring lines between realism and expressionism helps Lupton probe the internal and external dialogue faced in his multi-directional narratives. His recent work pits moments of choice against the visualization of their outcomes: temporal planes coexisting on a singular surface. With the notion of quantum mechanics having every possible outcome to a situation realized in splintered universes, he paints figures with varied levels of connection to reality. To question our process of free will as well as our concepts of space, time, fate, and self; if every decision comes true in one parallel life or another, are we as free as we think we are? Lupton’s design work balances on the idea of effective communication and purposeful aesthetics, and that from the ground up everything should be started with a solid concept. Lupton’s processes lean heavily towards idea generation and conceptualization: things start out through the hand, ideas converge and diverge, and the outcome creates an experience for the user: a connection. His diverse background gives him the ability to straddle and draw upon the two slightly neurotic worlds of visual art and design.

Minghao Dong has had solo exhibitions in Dalian at Tianyi Gallery, and has participated several group exhibitions in China. He lives and works in Paris since 2009.

” My work focuses on the terrain beyond the conventional two-dimensional landscape of paper and canvas. In bringing to life a flat surface, I strive to create a puzzle between what is real and what is illusion, what is painted and what is manipulated, turning paint to flesh, paper to sculpture. The figures surrounding the paper folds represent the old habits we have from our parents, experiences, traumas….. It is our duty to brake these patterns and become ourselves.” – Marcelo Daldoce
