Gabriel Kuri (Born 1970 in Mexico City) ‘creates visually refined sculptures, collages, installations, and photographs, working from repurposed natural, industrial, and mass-produced objects (insulation foam, shells, soda cans, and stones, to name only a few). In Kuri’s work, which is often responsive to its exhibition site, questions of form and the nature of sculpture are of equal importance to more social, political, and economic concerns regarding the circulation of commodities (artworks included) and information within a global market.’ (via Hammer Museum)

Hannah Rothstein creates. Born with a contagious can-do attitude, Hannah doesn’t believe artists should have to limit themselves to one medium. So, she makes paintings, illustrations, jewelry, murals, carefully crafted copy, and a whole lot of good, clean trouble. In addition to all this, Hannah is often employed as a freelance copywriter and editor.

‘Born and raised in Miami, Judi Harvest lives and works in New York City and Venice, Italy. Harvest creates sculptures, paintings, videos and installations inspired by the fragility of life and search for beauty. She believes there is no difference between art and life. She has a MFA in painting having studied at Tyler School of Art in Rome, Italy, the School of Visual Arts, New York and Urbino, Italy, New York Studio School and the Art Student’s League. She lived and worked in Venice, Italy from 1987-92 where she studied glass making in Murano. This fascination continues as her work is most inspired by process.

” Art should challenge you. I am interested in creating moments where things click. My practice is idea based. The core focus of my work is to raise questions, reveal in the inconsistencies, and interrogate the obvious through a series of connections and to create a state of self-awareness. Each concept dictates its own way of revealing itself so the means of expression are determined by this.” – Radu Cioca

” I always wanted to be an artist and to be able to use my ideas and creativity in different ways. Since graduating Clydebank College here in Glasgow i have been working full time on my Art and have created some interesting painting series whilst experimenting with several different and unique techniques and media. My Meteorology Series are a collection of mixed media paintings that are inspired by infrared satellite images of extreme weather conditions across the planet, whilst my Abstract series focuses on trying to show the beauty found in the every day world especially when nature and the environment have an influence. I’ve always been so inspired by nature, the environment and the beauty of the planet and have found that through painting I can express what I see and feel more clearly than with words. To me often the simplest and most overlooked things are extraordinary, like the surface of the ocean seen from below or the weathered rustic face of an old wooden door, The textures and the unusual colours found in nature can be very inspiring especially when the elements manipulate them. My goals and hopes for the future of my art is to try and make an impact with abstract art on how we see the environment and nature and try to show abstract that is a little different from the normal.” – David Munroe

Atropos by Nezaket Ekici

“The artist works on the act of the liberation in an abstract way. She carries out an act of the self-liberation, while she frees herself with the help of a sissle from long ropes fastened at the roof and to the hair. She cuts off a part of her hair and in this way dissociates herself from a piece of herself. This work can be seen as a vital discussion about the question on the sense of life, that is partly characterised by striving for freedom. Particularly, because hair can be considered as a symbol of life. The name of the Performance installation “Atropos” is related to the Greek myth of the moira, the goddnesses of fate. Atropos, who is one of them splits according to the myth the fate threads of the life with a sissle. The artist shows with the radical act of the hair-cut a way out. She takes fate into her own hands and frees herself, like Atropos did. At least the act of the cutting can be seen as an attempt of liberation in itself.”

Konstantin Kofta created his own label, Kofta which combines seemingly contradictory elements outside the traditional canons of the fashion industry. His garments are sensual, effortlessly elegant, practical and wearable. Kofta uses rough skin, irregular shapes and unique scents to create a totally new vision of the attire as a whole. Designer Konstantin Kofta combines rural and urban perceptions, and embraces the unintentional and unexpected, which provide inspiration for current and future collections. Each collection appears as a form of art installation.

” I found a list of 10 psychopathic traits on the internet. Each trait corresponds to that individual’s personality in some way. I found these interesting as they just seemed like normal aspects of everyone’s personalities and also certain celebrities and figures of authority.” – Thomas Fowler
