Jane Lee is one of Singapore’s most noted contemporary artists. She is best known for her inventive techniques and innovative use of materials. She explores the very nature of the way paintings are constructed by treating the components of a painting—stretcher, canvas, and the paint itself—in new ways. In the process, she is re-examining the significance of painting and the relevance of contemporary art practice.

The thrust of American sculptor Tom Doyle’s work—both figuratively and physically—is a desire to suspend forms in space, sustained by just three supports. Although his works range in size from eight inches to fifteen feet, they share the same principle of lift, as if buoyed by the artist’s struggle to achieve weightlessness, or even flight. Doyle uses a Sperber two-man sawmill to carve trees that he fells himself. He devises the final shape of his sculptures after coming up with a support structure. His work has a distinct affinity with the abstract expressionist language used in paintings, particularly that of Franz Kline. Doyle was well-ensconced in the New York art world of the 1950s and ’60s, where he was part and parcel of the creative ferment. Tom Doyle is the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in Sculpture Award and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship Award in Sculpture. His works are installed at the New Britain Museum of American Art, New Britain, Connecticut; Queens College, Queens, New York; Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek, Chester, Connecticut; and the Jean Widmark Memorial, Roxbury, Connecticut.

In her work, Katrin Sigurdardóttir explores the way physical structures and boundaries define our perception. Through unexpected shifts in scale, she examines distance and memory and their embodiments in architecture, cartography and traditional landscape representations. While alluding to real locations, her works question the verity of these places, as well as our account of them.

Jeremy Price was born and raised in London, Ontario. Upon graduating from the Bealart Vocational Art School he attended the University of British Columbia and the Vancouver Film School. In 2008, Price moved to Montreal where he has lived for the past five years. Montreal serves as the major inspiration for his paintings. Their subject matter consists of loose depictions and representations of the streets and neighbourhoods that compose the city. They are unbiased representations of the stagings of the day, of commuting, of living. The images are fleeting moments, snapshots from a life that has a habit of moving too quickly sometimes.

Madame Peripetie explores the boundaries between fashion, sculpture and the human body, experimenting with various fabrics and patterns; whilst infusing high-fashion elements with abstract and conceptual ideas, creating an eccentric escapade of color and texture. In her work she is focusing mainly on the interaction between body, language and new media. Her inspirations include surrealism, dadaism as well as the new wave era of the 80s, British post punk scene and the avantgarde theater of Robert Wilson.

Sebastian Wickeroth was born in 1977. Lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany. ‘Geometric form and its concurrent disruption, destruction and deformation is also the starting point for Sebastian Wickeroth’s art. This can be the forcefully brute presentation of an implied destructive act such as in his work.’

” Art History has always been a passion of mine. My work depicts famous works, artists, and artistic movements in various ways to illustrate their influence on the art world. I mix artists in unexpected ways but there is always an artistic thread that binds them together. My work is like a tribute to all the artists who have ever inspired me. My work is also intended to put emphasis back on past masters in a fun, unexpected way. I am a sculpture and a painter, I combine both by hand sculpting forms and painting on them as if on a canvas. Together I feel my two mediums come combine to create my personal style.” – Noi Volkov
