Joram Roukes

"Joram Roukes’ paintings show his fascination for metropolitan dynamics making a mark on it’s inhabitants and streets. Following this concept Joram paints urban figures and landscapes complexed by subcultural influences and layers. He does this by using several techniques and styles combined in large scaled paintings resulting in an overall collage-like outlook."


Joram Roukes

2008 Startstipendium BKVB - A.I.R. New York.
2009 living and working in Groningen (NL)

Roukes' large scaled oil paintings refer to the moral dillemas one may find himself in, viewing todays western society. Through experience by participation Joram Roukes reflects not necessarily an opinion on society's flaws or faux in his work, but rather observes and reports on typical western phenomena, leaving judgement up to the viewer, who thereby, establish their own position in these matters.

Gabrielle Bakker

Gabrielle Bakker has created a world in which Minotaurs mingle with geishas and various mythical characters. Beautifully executed, her paintings combine diverse formal and historical means in achieving a rich and compelling imagery. Masterfully painted, Bakker's work has a clarity and light rarely seen in our time.
