Caeiro Manuel bio

Born in Evora (1975), lives and works in Lisbon

Manuel Caeiro has recently made a transformative shift from complex paintings of architectural spaces to increasingly abstract compositions that insert imagery from his previous work into the void. Planes and other geometric shapes are the subjects of these highly-refined pictures which imply man-made spaces, but without specific reference.

In his newest body of work, this imagery hangs in theair,suggesting an imaginary space, or a void. These compositions appear to focus on painter's spaces rather than architectural spaces, alternately resembling crowded rows of canvases, artist's loft storage with the room subtracted, or paintings falling like a tumbling house of cards. These works are allegories for the life of a painter, who must contend symbolically and physically with his or her own creations.

Caeiro's use of color planes resembles the vivid, monochrome geometric works of Minimalist sculptors like Donald Judd. Caeiro's interpretations, however, manipulate the plane, folding it upon itself and appropriating it. This bold move claims the Specific Object as fodder for painting. Caeiro's works make a powerful argument for the primacy of painting; other fields like architecture and sculpture are easily subsumed into imagery for the painter.

Caeiro has shown extensively in his native Portugal as well as Spain and Brazil, and has recently begun to gain recognition beyond the Portuguese and Spanish-speaking world. The work of this exciting mid-career painter has revelatory implications for the continued struggle between painting and sculpture, and beta pictoris is thrilled to introduce his work to a greater audience.

Like many contemporary painters, Manuel Caeiro questions painting starting from the repetition of forms. Each line insists on the achieving of an idea, and its multiplication, its sequence, generates the definitive rhythm. Manuel Caeiro works the modular detail as that which unleashes each new image, and he always does it starting from memory or recall of what is constructed, seeking a new order. Thus his strategy is that of unfolding or propagating a reality that is reconstructed and therefore fictitious, which is born out of the most traditional of mediums - painting - to the one that possesses the most historical charge and which at the same time to all appearances processes a weaker contemporary condition or at least one that is more questioned, with its mental state being a continuous reason for debate.

De Schamphelaere Wim bio

Wim De Schamphelaere (1963) lives and works in Kontich, Belgium

www.schamf.com

As an engineer in biochemistry he started his professional career in different companies and was one of the co-fouders of a digital printing compagny. He was always interested in nature and cultures, and traveled regularly around the globe. Ten years ago, he stopped his professional career, he became a fulltime professional photographer.

I started with photography about ten years ago. Attracted by foreign cultures, I worked mainly on the African continent. Many times I returned to the same most remote villages and communities. Gradually, trust and mutual respect were growing. At the end, they admitted me in their daily life, and they accepted to be photographed on my way. I started to show my pictures only a few years later. (Wim De Schamphelaere)

He portrayed larger groups until whole villages wanted to participate at the realization of these stunning images. He made hundreds of single images resulting in a very detailed large scale picture in which the individuals as well as their environment are very detailed. This meticulous mounted photographs represent the reality, but are much more than only documentary : his involvement with his subjects is evident at first sight.

Working in this manner, whole villages were proud to participate in the creation of these stunning images.

I’m using the photographic techniques of today, not to change the image of the current reality, but just to reproduce a true image of this reality on a way that was impossible in the past. (Wim De Schamphelaere)

As an outsider in the art world he overwhelmed the public by showing his work the first time.
Last year, he went several times to Cuba, and he started there with shootings.

Golub Leon bio

Leon Golub (1922 - 2004)

"Leon Golub started making art in the late 1940s, after serving in World War II as an army cartographer. Early in his career, Golub turned away from dominant abstract modes of painting, pervasive in the decades following the war, to create expressive figurative works that confront the dynamics of global power and its victims. His paintings consider the violence and torture in the shadows of governments (especially the U.S. government), out of view of the public and outside of the law. Golub’s method of painting, applying layers of oil and then scraping the surface with a meat cleaver, adds a traumatic and distressed presence to his works, augmenting the horrific acts depicted in the paintings."

"As a leader of Chicago’s figurative movement in the 1950s, Leon Golub has always rejected a detached, distanced approach to art, instead espousing expression and confrontation. Described as an existential and activist painter, Golub gained recognition for his large-scale, politically charged, highly topical works that directly address issues of war, racism, sexism, and power."

For Golub abuse of power is both an ancient and a contemporary condition, always present in the world, and the ability of such power to corrupt those who hold it chips away at humanity. Both the victims and the orchestrators of torture and suffering reside outside of ethical boundaries, in a place where social contracts of dignity lie in ruin. Golub portrays a horrible world of degradation, where humans have more in common with objects than subjects, where the right to freedom is flagrantly abandoned. (The Broad)

Mellado José Maria bio

José María Mellado (1966) lives and works in Madrid, Spain.

José Maria Mellado is one of the most fascinating digital landscape photographers, and interested in the evolution of the relation between nature and the human footprint. He photographs places, that are often now becoming unaffected, giving a perverse and ambiguous appearance, indefinable, yet attractive and seductive.

He masters the digital technology and uses it to achieve the scenery that he literally wishes : an optical enhanced image. He transforms his images, of course, but with a certain understanding. He doesn’t add disparate elements from nature to his images, but artificially underlines present visual elements by subtly adjusting light and tonality.

His interventions approximate the edge of the perception, so his photographs are sublime images. The romantic painters from the 19th century (Caspar David Friedrich …) combined disparate elements from nature in their paintings to produce their sublime images : the Romantic Sublime, with its emphasis on rendering exalted, spiritual landscapes. Mellado is developing a new different conception, his images are only made possible digitally, they are as real and powerful to us as anything the Romantics ever produced. Mellado proves that photography can really be “the new painting” and that he is a poet of the digital sublime who uses enhanced techniques to express his art.

His interventions are deliberated with the purpose of guiding the spectator’s reading, so his photographs are emphatic images. This emphasis is useful to dramatise apparently insubstantial visions. He looks more to express motives and contrast, not only in light and tonality, but also in the significant components of the image, so ruined, abandoned or lacking use are descriptions closer to his themes than the classical romantic idea of ‘ruin’, interpreted as the monument’s deterioration.

His images are sublime, seductive, emphatic, surprising, sometimes disturbing ..., but not documentary or anecdotal.

He received many awards , his work is represented in many important museum and private collections.

Spero Nancy bio

Nancy Spero (1926–2009) is a leading figure in the feminist art movement of the 1960s.

In her well-known ‘War paintings’ (1966 – 1970) in gouache and ink on paper, produced during the Vietnam years, she explored the atrocities of war as well as female sexuality, suffering, and heroism.

"I have deliberately attempted to distance my art from the Western emphasis on the subjective portrayal of individuality by using a hand-printing and collage technique utilizing zinc plates as an artist's tool instead of a brush or palette knife. Figures derived from various cultures co-exist in simultaneous time... The figures themselves could become hieroglyphs--extensions of a text denoting rites of passage, birth to old age, motion and gesture... Woman as activator or protagonist dancing in procession, elegiac or celebrator a continuous presence, engaged directly or glimpsed peripherally; the eye, as a moving camera, scans the re-imaging of women." (Nancy Spero)

In her later work, she will use her hand-printing and collage technique on handmade paper.

Nancy Spero was married to Leon Golub.

NANCY  SPERO - ‘Male Bomb', 1966 (from War Series) - Gouache and ink on paper. 60 x 90 cm, 34 x 27 in , signed, titled and dated

Stijn Ank bio

Stijn Ank °1977 (BE)

www.stijnank.com

Ank’s body of work can be considered as an extensive research into the relationship between matter and void and the various ways in which contemporary sculpture can be defined in relation to its surrounding space.

He creates a mould with a variety of materials such as wood, aluminium, lead and rubber marking off the boundaries of a certain chosen space, which he then casts in plaster. During the casting process Ank mixes pigments with the liquid plaster, letting the material render their ultimate appearance. The works created by this process are both fragile and robust, delicate and solid, light as a feather and heavy as lead.

For Ank his works are not merely sculptures placed in space but 'stances' or 'subjects' that appear out of the space itself. They do not refer to any reality or to themselves as objects and define themselves on the basis of the relationships with both the viewer and the space thus continuously changing.

Van Der Salm Frank bio

Frank Van Der Salm (1964) lives and works in Rotterdam, Holland.

After studying Photography and Audio/Visual Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands (1992), his main focus has been the Urban Landscape in it’s broadest sense. Over the years early influences of the New Topographics have evolved into a diverse oeuvre about the control of landscape, lack of space, infrastructural issues and the pressure on time and space in contemporary metropolises, reflecting our ways of communication and it’s speed.

Now that the world has developed from separate cities with local activities to one world of (re)-presentation, that is photography, video, film, internet, games, news and entertainment, reality exists in the images that represent it. Focusing on the specific vs. the ordinary and the original vs. the copy, his work elaborates on this medium's dualistic position. Lately, attention has shifted to the new centers of economic power, resulting in projects next to but including the United States and Asia over the last couple of years. He's also working with architects like OMA/Rem Koolhaas, Herzog & de Meuron and MVRDV and on infrastructural and cultural projects like the Atelier HSL. Working with professionals in other media has influenced increasing diversity in approaching the contemporary environment. Thus, 'The City' is created with an 'imaginery status' of reality, where 'real' images are remporary. This 'real' is part of Sim-City: a micro-cosmos of urban existence. The city and it's images are real and unreal at the same time. 

His photo works and videos are published widely and have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, among which the Biennale of Venice, Italy (2001), Haunch of Venison, Zürich, CH (2005), Akinci Gallery, Amsterdam, NL (2009), and the Stedelijk Museum, Schiedam, NL. These works of art are collected around the World.

MASSIMO VITALI bio

Vitali Massimo (1944) lives and works in Lucca, Italy and Berlin, Germany.

He is well-known for his photographs of crowds, focusing on present-day leisure activities : the beach, the discotheque, mass tourism, ...

A typical feature of his oeuvre are the large, impersonal crowds in which details and individuals are recognizable anyway.

Through the bird’s-eye view and the wide-angle camera with which he works, he obtains photographs with a wide range of vision, but very detailed at the same time.

His work is represented in the world major museums, including Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, Centre Pompidou, Paris, Musée d`Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Fondation Cartier pour l`art contemporain, Paris, Fonds national contemporain, Paris, Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver, Centro per l`Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci.
