Hollis Brown Thornton

Hollis Brown Thornton Work from Recent Work. “The phrase “The Earth on the Back of the Giant Turtle” originates in Native American myth. In the story, the world is covered in water and an animal is asked to dive to the bottom of the primordial ocean to collect mud to form the dry land on […]

David Maljkovic

David Maljkovic Work from his oeuvre. “Maljkovic’s art is open and fluid: the narrative structure of the episodes from which it is composed can be manipulated and reordered. At the CAPC, he underscored this ability to reinvent his approach through a careful dialogue with the museum’s architecture, by dividing a wing of the building into […]

Barbara Breitenfellner

Barbara Breitenfellner. Work from Collages. “(…) One could say that Barbara Breitenfellner essentially „exhibits exhibitions“, every installation becoming an exhibition in itself, like those we can find in crappy private collections, in strange American suburban museums or even in trendy art galleries. For her show at CAPRI, the artist presents printed works for the first […]

Jean Klimak

Jean Klimak Work from Chew by Numbers. “I make artworks that have contradictions in them, artworks that lie somewhere between the sublime and ambivalence. Through these processes, I focus on materials that are dissimilar in nature or exhibited in curious ways. By working in this manner, tensions are created between the materials I choose or […]

Bettina Pousttchi

Bettina Pousttchi Work from Starker Staat. “The very title and alliteration of Starker Staat( Strong state) evoke ominous associations from national security to other things. This series of photographs, taken in Cologne in 2003 and first exhibited at the Württembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart that same year, presents a cinematographic sequence that reinforces these alarming associations […]

Olof Broström

Olof Broström Work from Wind Drawings. “Olof Broström possesses a desire to capture and encapsulate time, to be able to freeze parts of an eternal axis of time and make use of the information therein for something else. By documenting natural processes with time-lapse photography, he has tried to show the readability of the movement […]

Jana Gunstheimer

Jana Gunstheimer Work from Status L Phenomenon. “Darkness is a constant refrain in Jana Gunstheimer’s consistently black-and-white drawings and aquarelles. It almost seems as if daylight can never dawn on the derelict spaces and desolate zones, reverted to nature, that are her preferred territory. Her reports tell of a shadow reality characterized by flowing transitions […]

Jonas Criscoe

Jonas Criscoe Work from the West Collection. “My work depicts the new monuments of the contemporary American landscape – walled-in track homes, chain restaurants, and elevated highways. It explores how our ever-expanding consumer culture has shaped the environments in which we live. My paintings are shiny postcards that depict these monuments of contemporary America, reflecting […]

Cynthia Greig

Cynthia Greig Work from Representations. “My series “Representations” combines photography and drawing to explore the concept of photographic truth and its correspondence to perceived reality. No digital manipulation is involved. Focusing on the representation of ordinary things, I draw directly onto 3-dimensional objects (which I have painted over in white paint) to create visual hybrids […]

Jowhara AlSaud

Jowhara AlSaud Work from Out of Line. “The latest body of work began as a comment on censorship in Saudi Arabia and it’s effects on visual communication. There are regions in Saudi Arabia where people still draw a line across throats in photographs (figuratively cutting the head off.) There are blurred out faces on billboard […]
