Gabriel Orozco (born April 27, 1962) is a Mexican artist, born in Jalapa, Veracruz, Mexico, and educated at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas between 1981 and 1984 and at the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid between 1986 and 1987. Orozco gained his reputation in the early 1990s with his exploration of drawing, photography, sculpture and installation. In 1998 Francesco Bonami called him “one of the most influential artists of this decade, and probably the next one too.”[1] Within the past fifteen years Orozco has also created work in the medium of painting. An avid world traveler, Orozco and his wife Maria Gutierrez, along with their son Simón, divide their time between Paris, New York and Mexico City.

” My current work addresses a hybrid cultural identity that I recognize in myself and throughout my generation. I was born in California into a Dutch-Indonesian-American, middle-class household. The loose self-definition in my family made it possible to have flexible belief systems and customs. Many of my generation whose families are cultural hybrids find their way to an ever-changing cultural identity. We live not just by the traditions from which we come but the unique paths we traverse. We are less aggressive about our place in the multicultural dialog than previous generations, having never experienced just one identity nor the pressures of accompanying stereotypes. Our hybrid identities are still born from dislocation, but the strife has been either left behind or ignored.” – Adam de Boer

‘Flemish artist Berlinde De Bruyckere is one of those contemporary female sculptors who explores inner and outer spaces in connection with this witness, and in so doing plumbs the finality of the body as a perceptible counterpart. The creatures a combination of unusual elements that are found in a state of metamorphosis are hermaphrodite forms that evoke complex emotions and reflect images of a both humanistic and at the same time art-historical investigation of suffering.’ (via Kunsthaus Graz)

Maiko Takeda

 photo look9_zps944a2721.jpg

Logic + geometry + space form the common denominator in all Maiko Takeda pieces. It’s a world in which the simple will seem complicated and order turns to chaos. But do not be afraid to indulge, as at the end you will always find that the common denominator stands (right there at the bottom where it belongs). Maiko Takeda grew up in a post boom Tokyo where she quickly was faced with the challenge of wanting to create products of individual and timeless quality in a country slowly coming to a grinding halt. This meant that she more and more looked to areas outside of fashion and pop culture for impulses, exploring the city by foot, finding inspiration in the smallest and most random of things. Within the pieces, there is the juxtaposition of various elements. Environmental influences such as shadow, wind and gravity, create an experience of wonder and bewilderment for the adorned. The form of her work itself can never be its sole feature as the extra element is always seeking to transcend the expectations of the wearer as part of the work. After having moved to London she studied Jewellery Design BA(Hons) at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and is currently doing a Masters in Millinery at the Royal College of Art. Her work experience includes Issey Miyake, Stephen Jones, Philip Treacy and Erickson Beamon.

Marion Borgelt

Marion Borgelt is a leading Australian artist with a prodigious career spanning some 30 years. Her work draws inspiration from subjects such as semiotics, language, optics and phenomenology to create atavistic fantasies and mysteries that take form in paintings, sculptures and installations. Her work suggests connections between man-made culture and nature, continually navigating this intermediate space. It speaks to the links between the constructed and the organic world, between microcosm and macrocosm and the ever-present duality of light and dark. A lexicon of symbols and motifs, at once universal and personal, distinguishes the imagery of Borgelt’s work. Drawing on experience with a wide range of materials, including bees-wax, canvas, felt, pigment, stainless steel, wood, stone and organic matter, she hones her ideas to the demands of a given site, mediating the creative intervention with originality and sensitivity.
