I've been born with an innate requirement to create, and by circumstance paint is the vehicle I have chosen. At the easel there is meditation, maybe some insanity that takes place. Sometimes I praise it, sometimes it's my scapegoat. It's a yin and yang thing going on. Whatever it is, there is a drive to get the cerebral into the physical without the ultimate concept ever fully unveiled; and that is why I paint. I'm like a dog chasing a ball but the difference between the dog and I; is that I never catch the damn ball!!" - Joshua Suda  photo Eye3_zpsfd4ee371.jpg  photo eye_zps72226a10.jpg

The residential building is designed for a couple with an independent area for guests and is divided into two parts: one introverted area, articulated by an arrangement of smaller openings following the surrounding typology of the neighborhood; its counterpart is an extroverted zone facing the forest and the beautiful view of the valley. The exterior space is interpreted as an extension of the open living area. The abstracted shape of the gabled roof draws an analogy to the surrounding roof typologies, which is common in Southern Germany. The transformation to an open cubic design made a maximum size of openings possible, as well as the visual merging of living and nature.

We are self taught, we came from Psychology and Philosophy studies which became very handy on our later work. Our style could be considered Lowbrow or Surrealistic Pop and our artistic philosophy always come from a concept that might be shown or neglected at the final shape of our work. We consider ourselves multidisciplinary, we came to think that because we have done projects that include very different media and we have covered pretty much the whole spectrum of techniques including animation, video art, digital art, fineart, illustration, wall painting and sculpture. We have been influenced by many things, movies, comic books, music … and social aspects that concern us and try to give expression to manifest ourselves through our work using imagination to disseminate our thoughts." - CRAJES (Carla Rendón and Jessica Ruiz)  photo _MG_6386_zps90cdaaf8.jpg

180 Canvases by Instant Hutong

 photo cf48b76c3d62cd058a2f0faf7d17ab3e_zps254ca2b0.jpg  photo 8cc7c89f8e6f99bebf41630442e7907a_zpsad655107.jpg  photo f390031ae06f72a895f60d933b914ed2_zpsbf793b60.jpg 180 Canvases is a site specific installation designed to fill the space of Arrow Factory gallery in JianChang Hutong, Beijing. Arrow Factory is a 15 m² independently run alternative art space founded by artists Rania Ho and Wang Wei, which occupies a former vegetable stand and which is now hosting exhibitions on a monthly base. We played with the original concept of the space, a shop-like show window facing the hutong lane, inserting an element of surprise to catch attention of passing-by viewers. The contrast of a colourful Wunderkammer featuring 180 canvases painted by hand strikes with the grey colour of surrounding walls, bringing some reminder to local tradition of chinese colourful paper cutting and the common habit of people to hang up wires on which they put clothes to dry on the public lanes. On the other hand, the installation will continue the research project called Theory of Moments, undertaken by Marcella Campa and Stefano Avesani, on investigating and reshaping the not defined, abandoned or under-used spaces in downtown Beijing.  photo db617bb0152d62da34a5f069fddbaf07_zpscced17df.jpg  photo 57d549a143e57eb6fe0ac320158d6adf_zps18ed1a18.jpg

So far, it has shown my impressions and perceptions of autumn and winter in Quebec leading me to illustrate, the evolution of the hibernation and laziness phenomenas that characterise my mood during these dark and cold months. When the fall comes, the body is looking for physical comfort. The feminines figures represented find themselves surrounded with wool clothes, blankets and pillows. “Duvets” and walls are covered with colorful flower patterns, simulating spring and summer life and the warmth of the nest where to hide until the sun comes again. In the winter days, the bathtub hot water remains the best way to console the skin and bones from this unkind climate." - Alexandra Levasseur  photo 1_zps099d75ba.jpg  photo 23_hunting-season-lr750_zps1cb7f819.jpg

For In Just a Blink of an Eye, 2005, presented in 13 Rooms, a breathing body floats mysteriously in mid-air, frozen in time and space as if defying the constraints of physics. The work engages with the materiality of the body, testing the limits of physical and cognitive possibilities as we try to comprehend what we see. - See more at: http://kaldorartprojects.org.au/13rooms/xu-zhen#sthash.gHiTDDm5.dpuf  photo blink_of_an_eye_610_zpsb7c32c80.jpg  photo z1_zps697af8fa.jpg
