Artists

Anna Freeman Bentley

Anna Freeman Bentley builds her own painting by focusing to the relations derived from the observation of the indoor space and the environment surrounding modern people. Her works gives a sense to the viewers without placing the character on the canvas but only the objects, subtly intervening the features of the place as well as the hidden context outside the screen. For this exhibition, her new series of works depicting the private places for limited members will be introduced. 

 

Benjamin Brett

Benjamin Brett's works of free-formations and line paintings, attempts to distance itself from the paragon grammar and customs of painting. The artist disassembles and splits the images extracted from various visual objects found from movie posters and book covers, and juxtaposes them with the paintings. His paintings suggest only minimal sociocultural contexts leaving behind the audience to look freely scattered images and lead them to an interesting interpretive field of own.

Sarah Lederman

Sarah Lederman embeds a rich reference encompassing memories, dreams, fancies and myths on the canvas. Her works of extreme resumption of dense composition and abundant portrayal are a delightful coexistence of hedonistic eroticism based on childhood miraculous fantasies of women, and sketchy drawings which might appear in children's daydream. The images of various spectrums, ranging from the paintings of Middle Ages to the Japanese erotic painting, arise curiosity and stimulate emotions.
