My debut solo exhibition "American Beauty" is a collection of oil-on-canvas portraits of beautiful, talented, and troubled women in the public eye whose well-documented struggles have been proliferated across the media worldwide. Lindsay Lohan is a central figure in the collection, as I personally relate to her issues with addiction and self-destructive behavior- as well as her perseverance and talent. The images in my paintings aren't always flattering, but they are all beautiful in my eyes. I try to use color, sensitivity, humor, and honesty in my paintings to convey these women as I see them. By having an empathetic (though not always sympathetic) eye, I'm able to make something beautiful out of images that have been widely considered ugly or damaging." - Jon Eisenmann  photo tumblr_n4q278DLc71tarovuo6_1280_zpsec2ae3d6.jpg  photo JE-Side_Effects_3_zpscb31acf2.jpg

For this project he has made four leaded glass skylights in the ceiling at Aird’s Lane. Utilising the four rectangular skylights, Wright’s new work incorporates handmade, blown glass and leading, following a complex design developed by the artist. In response to the horizontal structure of the skylights, Wright has adapted the technique initially employed in his recent commission for Tate Britain’s eastern windows, in the Milbank foyer.'

Therefore we created the largest physical graphic identity the world has ever seen, a gigantic physical art installation measuring 13×8 meters, enabling the visitors to interact, climb and jump on it. To produce the identity we used 10 000 nails, 175 litres of paint, 280 plywood sheets, 14 people during 900 hours, and we rented a skylift to photograph it 30 meters up in the air." - Snask  photo malmofestivalen-2014_photoshoot_skylift_07_zpsed6de7ab.jpg  photo malmofestivalen-2014_photoshoot_skylift_12_zps621646b7.jpg  photo malmofestivalen-2014_buildup-in-the-city_02_zpsd216a834.jpg

Eliasson strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. Eliasson’s diverse works – in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations – have been exhibited widely throughout the world. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space.  photo Olafur-Eliasson-Riverbed-2014-via-Lousisiana-Museum-of-Modern-Art-1_zps2ae6997f.jpg  photo IMG_MDA115567_1600px_zpsa325e806.jpg

His works are oil portraits created from pictorial resources that are destroyed inmedialty leaving an evidence behind. This way the concept of time is introduced, connotating concepts inherent in the human being such as creation and destruction, the perishable and ephemeral. His work recovers in some cases post-impressionist styles, resulting in a personal language that makes his art project one of the most interesting in the contemporary scene. Taking as starting point the quote of Jean Paul Sartre, "The gaze of the other makes us aware of ourselves", his work becomes an introspective study of human beings, their conflicts, their nature and existence. His work has taken part in a number of national and international exhibitions. He lives and works in Barcelona/Spain.  photo 376768_335955323154745_1170903695_n_zpscc60ea27.jpg  photo 229884_317218878361723_836269979_n_zps151cea29.jpg
