Sam Friedman

“American artist Sam Friedman has been producing art in Brooklyn, New York, for the last decade. Tending to reflect the natural world, his work is simultaneously loose and precise. Friedman moves between representational and abstract depictions with seeming ease and spontaneity. His earliest “beach paintings”, completed in 2007, originated from his experience of walking towards the sunset during an oncoming storm. This personal encounter of induced visual clarity prompted in the artist’s mind the precise image for a fully formed painting that incorporated the language he had been developing in his earlier abstract work. This focus has occupied the most of his explorations then, resulting in a body of work that continuously breakdown and rebuild a natural landscape” Nuartlink Gallery

Kumi Yamashita

“I sculpt shadow with light or sometimes light with shadow, but both function in essentially the same manner. I take objects and carve and place them in relation to a single light source. The complete artwork is therefore comprised of both the material (the solid objects) and the immaterial (the light or shadow)”

Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen

“is a self-taught artist whose creative production revolves around classic figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner. The atmosphere in his subject matter is often depict in a limbo or dream-like state. Despite his realistic approach, photographic accuracy is not what he seeks to achieve”

Amethyst

“Amethyst is a site-specific installation with images and sound. Slowly dissolving slides reminisce the process of decay. The automated slideshow is projected in a dimly lit but richly decorated room, the visual style of the imagery referring to fashion photography.  I created this work on the occasion of Salon/1, by whom I was invited to show my work in Museum van Loon during the Amsterdam Fashion Week 2010.” K. H.

 

Terry Barentsen

“I’m Terry, a maker of things who lives in San Francisco. I have a cat named Margot who likes to eats bananas. I live in a old apartment with cold hard wood floors and long hallways. When I’m not riding my bike, I’m shooting photos, making videos, and contributing to a few blogs for the world to enjoy. Shoot me a quick message if you need a hand with anything.”

Claire Atkinson

“Quite often, street photography pays attention to extraordinary occurrences within a city. In contrast to the unusual and sometimes fantastical, Claire Atkinson manages to capture the more realistic, everyday perspective of the daily life of Manchester.

Atkinson’s ever-changing ‘Manc’ characters and backdrops show Manchester for its true self. The delightful personalities to be found on public transport, the caffeine-addicts through steamy café windows and the rushing feet of business along rainy pavements. We are not only given a taste of Manchester, but a rushing, blurry, reflection of Britain as a grumpy, ageing, multicultural nation.” Article Magazine, 2011

“Adult smokers are the societal norm, so I wanted to isolate the viewer’s focus upon the issue of smoking itself. I felt that children smoking would have a surreal impact upon the viewer and compel them to truly see the acts of smoking rather than making assumptions about the person doing the act” A. Statement

“With health reasons driving many cities to ban smoking, the culture around smoking has a retro feel, like the time period of “Mad Men,” when smoking on a plane or in a restaurant was not unusual. The aesthetics of smoke and the particular way smokers gesticulate with their hands and posture cannot be denied, but among the different tribes of “Smoking Kids,”

 

“To assure you of the safety of the children, there were no real cigarettes on set. Instead, chalk and sticks of cheese were the prop stand ins, while candles and incense provided the wisps of smoke.”

Lucia Zegada

“In her fine art photography, emerging French photographer Lucia Zegada’s work investigates the frontier between dream and reality. Out of time, out of frame, Zegada’s multitude of dream lives composes a mosaic more emotional than documentary. She has exhibited in France, Germany, Hungary, Mexico and in the U.S. and has done photography assignments for The New York Times, GQ, CondŽ Nast Traveler, Le Monde and Time Magazine” Togonon Gallery
