photographers put around their choices on a contact sheet.” W.K.

Klein returned to still photography in the 1980’s, ever progressive and unrelenting in his approach. Revisiting his work to that date, he made large-scale blow-ups of his photographic contact sheets, revealing on an unparalleled scale the frames before and after the decisive image. Liberally applying gloss brush strokes in bold colours to these mural-sized prints, Klein brought together key elements from his long career: graphic form, composition and colour from the early murals and paintings juxtaposed with ground-breaking fashion and street photos, along with the narrative and bold visual language of his experimental films. A defining moment where his unique vision came full circle. – Extract

Rhythm can be experienced both aurally and visually, and I am intrigued by this notion of visual cadence. This body of work represents a personal synthesis of these principles. The forms and tonalities in the final images are my rendering of the effects I undergo when translating these minor and major chords. I equate the emotional attributes of these chords with a subdued yet inflective element of a unified sequence. It is the evasive and ever changing element of rhythm that fascinates me, and the work is my interpretation of this delicate balance between harmony and discord: capturing the moment which causes refrain, the pause of introspection, in which the rhythms are viewed through individual terms. When viewed on a fundamental level, rhythm is innate. Specifically, when one contemplates the function of rhythm in such acts as breathing, the blinking of the eyes and the beating of the heart. In essence, the experience of rhythm is an intrinsic aspect in the experience of life. It is through the questioning and exploration of this concept that I arrived at the notion of visual cadence. This body of work is meant to explore the kaleidoscopic nature of perception where terms such as wrong or right do not apply for perception itself changes as much as the individual. ~ [Artist Statement]

These five portraits (giclée prints on canvas) were made by Martin Fojtek and then hand finished with acrylic paint by Cristian Del Risco, making each and every photograph a real original. Both artists worked independently on them with very little influence on each other. The final results are a very interesting combination of minimalistic black and white portraits (two Arabic, Belgian, Italian and Czech personalities, all with particular emotional expression) and colored acrylic ‘J.M.Basquiat’ style paintings.

The nature of my project has never been about boiling anything down, but rather exposing the complexities of human experience; particularly one’s self as subject and the world as object. The ‘self’ and the ‘other’ play a pivotal role as subject matter within my manipulations with language – locating, defining and ultimately obscuring any kind of singular ‘meaning’ behind or beneath the surfaces of the world. These games (self imploding sentences, misreadings , backfirings revisions, second thoughts etc.) offer access to the hope for authentic – if flawed – communication while confronting the indeterminacy of language, both literary and abstract. I use these self-conscious devices for a ‘defamiliarizing’ effect. Text allows the work to maintain a narrative thread while maintaining an allegiance to non-figurative imagery. I play the role of scavenger when it comes to the texts I use. I think of these selected fragments as a kind of linguistic ‘road kill’ – skeletons on which to hang the material of the painting. I am engaged with texts that evoke a certain prickliness or an emotional angle that is slightly askew, with an emphasis on themes rooted in an emotional or psychological realm rather than intellect. Sensation overides thought, just as fantasy takes the place of history. Statement

Nazafarin’s work performs as a stage for an event to happen where she searches for a particular moment, one that has passed or is to come. She empties out her thinking by refusing to let any one thought dominate in its visibility… almost everything is left out to compose a world exhausted of life. bio
