Oana Farcas
About

At the heart of Farcas’ practice is portraiture. Portraits of women, men and children, real and fictionalised, parade across her boards and canvases. Ranging in size from the diminutive world of the miniature, to large scale crowd scenes, Farcas’s work delivers a colourful ensemble of characters. Sometimes Farcas tends towards the fantastical, combining animals or anthropomorphic beings with her fully human figures; drawing from mythology and fairy tales, often sourced from her native Romanian heritage. Always though, it is possible to find Farcas herself in the work:

This world of Farcas’s could be described as being between the visible and invisible. What she feels and ‘sees’ in her mind’s eye is combined by seen and felt experiences in reality and who is to say that one is less real than the other when both can be translated into memories, and after both are re-born and co-existent within the grounds of her paintings?

Farcas’s paintings certainly have a dream-like quality about them. But in amidst the soft, misty environs she creates, there is a tangible physicality. The figures are robust, passionate creatures awash with emotions and often depicted mid action. The notion of observing a figure who is seemingly unaware, lends a voyeuristic quality to the work.

Merleau-Ponty argued that the artist’s ability to see the world is impossible to separate from his ability to move through it. From this point it is possible to go on to therefore claim that painting is as much a felt experience as a visual one. The artist needs to feel herself in her paintings, and to make it possible for others to also find themselves in the work. Farcas knows this, which is hat makes her paintings so arresting and seductive.

Ditte Ejlerskov
About

Ditte Ejlerskov’s paintings use the most traditional of subject matters. She paints still lives, landscapes, portraits, the female nude and the choreographed history painting. Yet while apparently following the conventions of representational painting, she aims to challenge its established languages and unsettle its assumptions.

Ejlerskov often returns to the same subject, but change the approach each time. Some paintings are purely experiments in composition, light, colour and technique. In other works, she chooses to capitalize on the tension between subject matter and medium – her brush strokes both affirming and contradicting what they depict.
In Ejlerskov’s work she uses a wide variety of painterly styles – not to give a hit parade of different methods – but in order to examine what kind of technique can host what kind of atmosphere. In short, she is in her practice looking at what paint can be made to say and do – but also what it has said and done – and how that can be applied on canvas today. Her interest is to question the activity and history of painting as well as being confined in it.

When deciding to do a painting she seldom just start on one canvas. She almost always thinks in multiple frames leaving the idea hanging between the frames in the installed exhibition. For that reason Ejlerskov’s work is never finished until it is installed. She is more interested in building up a situation in a series of paintings than trying to form a statement in one painting.

Nicola Samori
About

The Corporeality of the body as skin and scourged paint structure (literally écorché), realised in terms of marks and memory as material ‘trace’, is central to the approach to painting undertaken by Nicola Samori. His works express the inner life of painting both as a process and a material extension, and in so doing reveal his unique technique for revivifying the possibilities offered by traditional image-making. In a work called Hans Holbein Ecorché (estasi) (2010), the surface is quite literally a flayed space that has been materially transformed from its source image. The use of the term ‘ecstasy’ (in the philosophical sense of ‘outside-of-itself’) connotes at the same time the idea of a transformation that is both emotional and material. In this work, executed on a sheet of copper, Samori has used the material references of past painting practices, while completely revivifying them in relation to the aesthetic painting realities of the present, comprising an increasingly self-reflexive and analytical understanding of what constitutes the conditions of picture-making.

A part of the essay "Under the skin" written by the English curator and art critic Mark Gisbourne in the catalogue SOLO, presented by AMC Collezione Coppola

Gavin Turk
About

Gavin Turk has pioneered many forms of contemporary British sculpture now taken for granted, including the painted bronze, the waxwork, the recycled art-historical icon and the use of rubbish in art.

Turk’s installations and sculptures deal with issues of authorship, authenticity and identity. Concerned with the ‘myth’ of the artist and the ‘authorship’ of a work, Turk’s engagement with this modernist, avant-garde debate stretches back to the ready-mades of Marcel Duchamp.

In 1991, the Royal College of Art refused Turk a degree on the basis that his final show, ‘Cave’, consisted of a whitewashed studio space containing only a blue heritage plaque commemorating his presence ‘Gavin Turk worked here 1989-91'. Instantly gaining notoriety through this installation, Turk was spotted by Charles Saatchi and has since been exhibited by many major galleries and museums throughout the world.

Turk has recently been commissioned to make several public sculptures including Nail, a 12-meter sculpture at One New Change, next to St Paul’s cathedral, London, England. In 2013 Prestel published Turk’s first major monograph, showcasing more than two decades of his work and in 2014 Trolley Books published ‘This Is Not A Book About Gavin Turk’ which playfully explores themes associated with the artist’s work via thirty notable contributors.

Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen
About

Pantomime, mimicry, the architectural uncanny and ritual flourishes of modern and pre-modern culture are regular components in Kaspar Oppen Samuelsens works. The work explores the condition of appearance within a framework of human emotions and social pitfalls. It gives display to the accelerated and increasingly performative nature of our lives. The characters are non-verbal performers, they are out of time, heading nowhere, caught in a theatrical hustle, unanchored and without momentum, busy conducting abstract narratives, portrayed with an ambiguous and philanthropic intent. In Oppen Samuelsens work, which encompasses a variety of media, including largescale papercollages, sculptures, drawings and music soundtracks, every single thing is conjured with what seems to be, the inner benefits of a bountiful and saccharine world. However, it would be reductive to describe his work purely in terms of its depicted scenarios and figurations. His work is rich in its references to both cinema, art and theatre and Oppen Samuelsen is interested in using cultural history as a subject to interpretation, injected with layers of guises and disparate elements, in a way they are challenged by the appearance of one another.

Moritz Schleime
About

Moritz Schleime’s paintings imagine a degeneration of Pop culture, a world in which monster, hipster, comic characters, and motley protagonists of popular culture commingle and devolve. Although Schleime’s work appears driven and contextualized by American pillars such as Slash, Michael Jackson and Oscar the Grouch, it’s delivered in a way that is characteristically German. The surreal, undetermined and indeterminate narrative of Neo Rauch, the splashly, blotted painting of Daniel Richter and about a dozen other German painters who have characterized the Leipzig school—and now, the second wave of these painters in Schleime’s generation who experienced, for example, the GDR only as a young child.

It should be interesting to see how Schleime’s paintings develop. While Jackson and Cobain have experienced intense retrogressions, Schleime also makes the point that Pop and youth counterculture not only have assimilated but also live forever with a market niche for slickly packaged angst. If Berlin’s hip, youthful dwellers are anything like Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s, one truth is clear: hipsterism and more importantly its harbingers, like adolescence, fashions and trends, are ephemeral. Counterculture will devolve, within and outside of commerce, but die infinite deaths.

Hartmut Stockter
About

The theme of Hartmut Stockter’s work, is – in short – nature and observation. We see this in his sketchbooks as well as in the constructions and apparatuses he creates, which contain such insistent poetry, romantic desire, and awkward humour. His contraptions are designed to be used by an ‘Ausflügler’ (rambler) who is often out and about on rambles. These rambles have no specific purpose, they are without the urge to change, destroy or collect, but they are not merely an escape.

The Ausflügler finds little creatures exciting, and there are lots of them. He is not only out there for deer and rabbits, but also beetles and water fleas. Seeing a salamander up close can be quite jarring. When the Ausflügler is not rambling, perhaps he is sitting in his study, writing notes about walking across a building site, through stinging nettles or over to a puddle. When the Ausflügler is not rambling, he tends to be thinking up and building various apparatuses and devices to aid his rambling.

Of course, everyone knows that even the best devices can be more of a hindrance than a help: the underground periscope shows the viewer nothing but darkness; the smell-machine-bicycle cannot pick up the scent of flowers; and the sound of the whistling winds is drowned out by the noise of the mechanics. The machines get in the way, but their very existence expresses an irrepressible desire to approach nature in its own element. In this way, the artist reminds us of the importance of engaging with nature, preferably by rambling and best of all if in a puddle. In addition, all the pieces are created with such care and such an eye for detail that they stir our aesthetic curiosity and at the same time convince us of their necessity.

Asger Dybvad Larsen
About

Asger Dybvad Larsen’s conceptual paintings are identified most clearly in their dialectical conversation with the medium's traditions and its classic structure. This is done with a substantial focus on the traditional paintings materials. He sands the painting so that the stretcher bar appears as part of the piece. This particular process focuses on the physicality of the painting and stores the process in the surface of the art work - one of the medium's strengths. Asger Dybvad Larsen also works with surfaces in his paint-tray paintings. An acrylic paint-cast of the tray’s structural surface is mounted on a canvas and acts as an abstract motif in the work, and refers back to the precursors and the basic materials of a traditional painting. The same theme can also be seen in his stirring-stick frames, or when he shows simultaneously both the front and back of a canvas. The subject of Asger Dybvad Larsen's work is an ongoing investigation and challenging the dialogue of traditional understanding of painting.
