Katarina Burin (born 1975 in Bratislava\, Slovakia) f inished her studies at the Yale University in 2002. The artist works in var ious media and is mainly interested in the subject of the ubiquity and hist ory of architecture and design. She focuses on how images and documents rep resent the past\, but at the same time define today’s world. Her works have been exhibited worldwide\, i.e. at White Columns in New York\, at the the Museumsquartier in Vienna and the Thurn &\; Taxis Palais in Bregenz. In 2009 Katarina Burin received the McDowell Residency scholarship (New Hampsh ire\, USA).

Dark\, mysterious and threatening are terms that best describe the paintings by Damien Cadio (born 1975 in Mont Saint Aig nan\, France). Many of his subjects appear to be almost banal\, but because of his own aesthetic signature his works give the impression of a latent m enace\, not unlike the imagery of a David Lynch movie The depiction of the threat is rarely explicit\, but it is the coherent thread that unites his e ntire oeuvre. In the spirit of the 21st century Cadio finds his motifs via Google and Co.. Therefore it is quite possible that some of his paintings a wake a certain degree of familiarity. Nevertheless\, the artist manages to turn his collected internet findings into uncanny\, mysterious icons. Throu gh the movie inspired technique of dramatization\, the known and locatable motif is either renounced or strengthened in its meaning.

The works of Andreas Chwatal (born 1982 in Regensburg) appe ar to be something like props\, antiques or insights into apartments and bu reaus\, removed from their original context. In those works graphical and s culptural means are interfused to one installation\, trying to showcase the whole of a story in one snippet. As in most of Chwatal’s works\, the artis t integrates also a textual level: poetic texts\, which Chwatal regards as images as well\, underlining the fictional character and just seemingly con tributing to the decipherment of the presented works. A story is evoked and not unlike a crime story\, it pulls the viewer into a vortex. Apparently c onflicting elements and memorized images crystallize into a mysterious over all picture.

Nana Dix (geb.1962 in München ) studied Industrial Design at the Fachhochschule (1984 – 85) as well as Ar t History at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich (1985 – 89). Her l ast exhibition “Color Me Beautiful” marks a turning point for Nana Dix from collage back to painting\, an organic artistic development. After years of abstinence from the medium of painting she returns and showcases a develop ed stage. Whereas the former collages reflected the overflow of images and the unrest of our times\, the monochromatic color fields of the current exh ibition indicate a ruminant withdrawal\, which can be regarded as an allusi on towards the abstract paintings of Mark Rothko

In his minimalistic art\, New York- and Berlin-based artist Jeff Grant (born 1975\, New York State\, USA) deals with the subject of identity and expectations. In his he ad studies\, dimly contours evoking the idea of human heads are adorned wit h colourful points and swirling circles that become abstract eyes and mouth s (i.e. “Head with dot holes 1”). Jeff Grant describes his own work as “a s tudy in the co-existence of determined facts and shifting\, ambiguous defin itions.” It seems like that those head-like shapes deliver the “determined facts\,” whereas the seemingly “shifting” points and circles constitute the claimed “ambiguity\,” the uncertainty of human identity. Jeff Grant gradua ted from the Goldsmiths College in London in 2000. In 2011 he amazed the pu blic with a great exhibition in South Korea.

A pa rticular affinity to architectonic situations and forms of suburbia is char acteristic for the work of Swiss artist Daniel Robert Hunziker (born 1965 in Walenstadt\, Switzerland). Hunziker blends a particular feeling fo r space and his impressions of structures into mysterious objects\, which c an be located somewhere between a model and an installation. The artist fin ds concrete points of departure for his individual works in constructions h e happens to come across in his everyday environment and which he observes first and foremost from the perspective of a sculptor. Hunziker lives and w orks in Zurich. In 2011 the artist inspired the public with the Gallery von Bartha at Art Basel Unlimited.

The imagery of Leonhard Hurzlmeier (born 1983 in Starnberg\, Germany) is one of geome try. Clean lines\, triangles\, rectangles and trapeze converge and coincide \, creating works of playful ornamentation\, contrasting the more algid abs traction of someone like Mark Rothko. By approaching the paintings of Hurzl meier\, the viewer realizes\, that the supposedly even canvases feature a v ery detailed structure. The artist accentuates the ‘scars’ of the entire pa inting process and thereby creating an interesting contrast between the cal culated motive and the organic feeling of the paintings. Hurzlmeier paints on already used canvases\, whose surfaces he completely repaints\, however\ , he allows the ‘old’ texture to shine through and by doing so\, his works become immanent documents of time.

In 2011 Pet er Riss (born 1962 in Kaufbeuren\, Germany) managed to elate with his f irst solo exhibition at our gallery. The artist studied from 1997 – 2001 at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Prof. Gerhard Merz. Peter Riss' painting s and objects are distinguished by an almost excessive aestheticism: glassy lacquer surfaces reflecting the environment (including the viewers)\, harm onic geometries as well as golden skeletons\, animal bones and fawns are al l part of Peter Riss’ imagery. Stylistically the viewer may be reminded of the works of Mondrian or even traditional Japanese architecture\, as Peter Riss employs a similar way of structuring his space determining installatio ns and objects.

Stefan Sandner (born 1968 in Vienna\, Austria) is one of the most important contemporary representati ves from Austria. Through the transfer process of memo to canvas and the im mense enlargement\, Sandner elevates this seemingly banal scrap of everyday life into the realm of art. Besides the question of the artistic status of his work\, Stefan Sandners paintings also put the authorship into question . The notes and memos transferred onto canvas are the intellectual property of known and unknown authors that Sandner appropriates for his purposes. T his fact puts the artist also into the direction of Appropriation Art\, whi ch centers around the question of authorship\, acting accordingly to the Ze itgeist of postmodernism by quoting and copying other material. While quoti ng these other sources Sandner makes slight changes to subordinate the text s to his aesthetic and compositional needs.

Ma tt Saunders (born 1975 in Tacoma\, USA)\, who studied at Harvard as wel l as at Yale\, draws his inspiration for his work from films\, but he is no t only concerned with the history of that medium. His work engages with our spectatorship of the movies – the way that we identify with them\, live wi th them and experience them over time. Taking the form of painting\, drawin g\, short films\, and photography\, Saunders’ work takes an approach that i s at once analytic and personal\, building its own history\, both of materi als and of subjects. In 2011 Saunders had solo exhibitions at Blum &\; P oe in Los Angeles and at the Marian Goodman Gallery in Paris. Some of his w orks are part of the art collection of the MOMA and also the Whitney Museum in New York.

The artist Felix Schramm (born 1970 in Hamburg\, Germany) studied with Prof. Jannis Kounellis an d graduated in 1997 from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. His former oeuvre co nsists mainly of sculptures and room installations\, which are based on the architectural environments of the exhibition space. Walls\, floors\, ceili ngs are cracked by bias layers\, breaches and dumping space fragments. Hori zontals and verticals become bias\, whereby the coordinates are corrupted. Breached walls are openings\, views\, which allow new perspectives and imag es. Schramm transfers the aesthetic of his sculptural work to a new medium: the collage. His exhibition catalogue already covers institutions such as the Palais de Tokyo in Paris\, the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin as well as t he San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Lisa T an (born 1973 in Syracuse\, USA) already had three solo exhibitions at our gallery. The artist’s work negotiates her longstanding interest in loss as a constant yet shifting condition of being that shapes the quotidian wh ile anticipating the profound. Her works are marked by an elegant visual ec onomy\, and have taken the form of photographs\, videos\, sculptures\, draw ings\, writing…and a champagne cocktail. Tan lives in Stockholm and New Yor k. In 2011 she got her first solo exhibition in a museum\, the Arthouse at the Jones Center in Austin\, Texas.

With large sc ale paintings that focus on the more casual things and activities of human life\, artist Cornelius Völker (born 1965 in Düsseldorf\, Germany) m anaged to succeed in the harsh art world. Sandwiches\, slippers\, chocolate bars\, lap dogs\, women posing with their vacuum cleaner\, or people who a re putting on a sweater - all these motives\, putting emphasize on the pros aicness of everyday life\, stand in contrast to the sheer scale of the imag es as well as the honorable medium of painting itself. However\, Völker’s “ casual” art amazes the art audience and so the artist was granted with four solo museum exhibitions: the Villa Stuck in Munich\, the Wilhelm-Hack-Muse um in Ludwigshafen\, the Mönchehaus-Museum in Goslar as well as the Von der Heydt-Museum in Wuppertal (all in Germany).
