Victoria Duryagina | And I Dance With My Soulmate 

In her art, Victoria explores the topic of inner disharmony, its causes and its effects.

She wants to show that positive changes are possible with awareness and acceptance of true self.


Everybody wants to find a soulmate. The truth is that you are always a soulmate for yourself. You are the one who will get you out of depression and make you dance. You are the one in front of which you can not be ashamed. The best part of you.

This is a joyous outbursting of sound. A spontaneous and uninhibited dazzling cascades of notes sparkle, spiralling through the air…. Arthur will learn how to module someday but for now this E major chord is having a party.

Alex Keogan | Club Photos

Alex is a musician and photographer from Dublin currently based in Berlin.

 

Alex got quite into taking portraits once he got a film camera, mid 2019. Within portraiture, one of his favourite subjects is club/party scenes. Taking 5-10 minutes out of a night of dancing to immortalise certain moments is really fun, and as we see more venues get shut down in Dublin, Alex is increasingly grateful for the photos we have of these spaces.

Paco Poyato | Lust Days [PART 2]

Paco Poyato is a visual artist based in Castellón, Spain. Poyato is working in Photography, and the themes of his works share interest in issues related to the current consumer society and globalization. His aim being reflecting how these two concepts alter his closest reality.

“Lust Days” addresses the theme of leisure in those group activities in which experiences that revolve around a common cause are shared, in this case the pleasure of collective fun. The reflection that arises here is how leisure can be used as a tool for power and control over the masses.

Helen Bennett | Sasha Velour

Recently I’ve completed many commissions and had work exhibited in local and international online exhibitions.  I like to create pieces that mean something – that evoke memories or portray special people and places. I work with graphite and coloured pencil, charcoal, paper-crafting, pastels, pen, acrylic paint and mixed media.

Citron|Lunardi | Compost n.1

Citron | Lunardi is a collaboration between two different personalities: Selene Citron (1986)  passing from digital fabrication to performance and Luca Lunardi (1980) who works with video and writing.

 

Compost n.1 is part of an artistic project that combines science, video art and digital sculpting and is inspired by the recent studies of Donna Haraway on the concept of Chtulucene. We imagine a time in which the humans, undoing the anthropocentric vision, explore new symbiotic relationships with other living and non-living matter.

Judit Prieto | Tree of Your Soul

Judit Prieto is a Spanish artist based in London. She is a post-graduate in interior design and worked in this field since 2002, but followed her real passion, art, in London. 

 

Each painting of the Tree of Your Soul series is a catalyst between nature and human beings through the soul, like a tree bark open to reveal the soul captured in the abstract colours. 

Mechelle Rene | Leavings

Mechelle Rene’s work focuses on soft minimalism/color fields and abstract landscapes. She is an autodidact, and always curiously looking for the ‘the quiet’ in the tumult, somewhere on the horizon; peace and harmonious coexistence with each other and the planet, somehow. 

 

Adeyemi Ramon Omolaja |  The Kolanut River

Adeyemi Ramon Omolaja was born in Lagos, Nigeria, in 1978. He attended The Polytechnic Ibadan and received a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Fine and Applied  Art. At the completion of his academic pursuit, he joined the National Gallery of Art , Nigeria .

 

“Omi Obi” is a river located in Rore town in Omu Aran, Kwara state, in Nigeria. Its name was derived as a result of the surrounding Kola Nut trees that formed shade over it.

The river has both historical and spiritual connotations to the people of the town. The captivating point in this painting is the different outlooks of the same river which were separated by a log and never flow into each other.

Ross Pole |

Snacks

As an artist, Ross Pole is interested in the basic fundamentals of sculpture and the aesthetics of art and art theory.

 

 

The series “Snacks” involved the creation of a sculpture every day for 30 days straight. This series investigates notions of materiality, through ephemeral sculptures which utilise industrial processes which analyse our tactile relationship to synthetic manufactured objects.

Carla Geronimi | LADON

Carla Geronimi (b.1998, Switzerland) creates moving image works that showcase imaginary places, fictional stories and creature-like characters. She seeks to explore dreams, memory and identity through the use of non-coherent story lines and absurd narratives.


As we drift through a mythical forest, a sense of fantasy arises when an intriguing apple starts to attract a body of lizards. Loosely revisiting the Greek myth of Ladon and the Garden of the Hesperides, observational sequences of Dragon Trees and creature-like reptiles evoke the mystical stories and symbols associated to them.
