Eugenia Loli


 

Eugenia Loli was born in Athens, grew up in a small village in the mountains. She then moved to Germany and England, before moving to California Bay Area. She studied computer programming. In 2012 she filmed a number of music videos in the Bay Area. In an interview for „Café Babel“ she said: „I don‘t think I have a single collage style. I collage dada, I collage surrealism, and I collage pop art. However, in most of my artwork, there is some sarcasm. That sarcasm kind of remains constant. That‘s why if I were to say that I have a style, then it‘s sarcasm and not visual specifics.“

Silke Markefka


In her painting Silke Markefka engages with the relationship between present and past. She translates the process of remembering, which connects these cross-sections in time, into the process of painting and in doing so, explores the fine lines between representational and abstract, linear and gestic art, color and black and white. Silke Markefka has found the springboard for her series "Lusters", ongoing since 2004, in grand chandeliers, which she tracks down on visits to historic buildings. Her goal, however, is not the most meticulous rendition possible of the object once viewed, but an image of her recollection of it. She gradually retrieves impressions from memory before framing and crystallizing them in the mind's eye; the whole process finally being reflected in the painting. Out of multiple transparent layers, or outlines that give the appearance of being fleetingly sketched, there ultimately arises the impression of a chandelier, filling the canvas while seeming simultaneously present and absent. In some images, it is only the light of the chandelier that reaches the artist's consciousness and thus the canvas.

Michele Mikesell


Characterized by playful and thought provoking narratives, Michele Mikesell creates portraits of characters we recognize and identify with. Realistic and stylized faces are placed within loosely interpreted animal shapes and costumes that build a story of dichotomy and metaphor. A comparison and contrasting of human ideas with animal instinct reveals doppelgangers and counterparts within the individual subject. Confronting the audience with direct eye contact, these subjects force a relationship with the viewer and create a sense introspection and nostalgic whimsy through themes of irony, contradiction, humor and tragedy. Mikesell’s work can be found internationally in many private and corporate collections and has been exhibited throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. Mikesell studied painting and graphic design at "Texas Women's University" in Denton, Tx for her BFA and completed an MFA at the University of Oklahoma in Norman in 2004. Mikesell’s work has been continuously exhibited throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
