Melanie Authier’s paintings bring together visual contradictions into one imaginary space. By drawing upon the histories of abstraction and the strategies of representation, she presents improbable environments. A sense of disorientation comes about through the way in which colour, texture, line and shape compete for room within the canvas. Each work presents a brimming jostle of oppositions that the viewer is invited to bring into a certain order.
Jonathan Brand’s sculptures are inspired by his personal experiences and memories where he takes real events/situations in his life and uses it as a departure point for his imaginative projects. Read about his various projects after the jump.
