Artists Bio

Aneta Grzeszykowsa
(b. in Warsaw, Poland, 1974) Lives and works in Warsaw (Poland).

Aneta Grzeszykowsa is an artist of the Raster generation in Poland, associated with one of Poland's most creative institutions. In her art she uses photography, video and digital techniques to explore issues of intimacy, self-awareness and self-erasure. She graduated from the Graphic Design Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (1999). Her work is characterised by an intimate approach to her subject. She is very much engaged in experimentation with digital techniques to manipulate her images and create new contexts, exploring the ways in which reality can be transformed.

Mira Schor
(b. in New York, USA, 1950) Lives and works in New York (USA).

Mira Schor is a New York-based artist and writer noted for her advocacy of painting in a post-medium visual culture and for her contributions to feminist art history. Schor’s work balances political and theoretical concerns with formalist and material passions. Her work has included major periods in which gendered narrative and representation of the body have been featured; in other periods the focus of her work has been representation of language in drawing and painting. The central theme in recent paintings is the experience of living in a moment of radical inequality, austerity, and accelerated time, set against the powerful pull of older notions of time, craft, and visual pleasure.

Farley Aguilar
(b. in Managua, Nicaragua, 1981)

Raised in Miami since the age of five, Aguilar is a self-taught painter widely recognized amongst the young South Florida contemporary art community. Aguilar’s work communicates sensations of danger, dread and emotional volatility filtered through the psychological wavelengths of the ‘mob mentality’. In a constant state of searching for truth, Aguilar highlights the possibilities of attaining ultimate knowledge: like Faust, enlightenment leads to self-destruction while ignorance remains blissful. His colors and subjects reflect the full scale of human mortality, destined for a glorious demise. Elements of classical mythology are selectively inserted throughout Aguilar’s work, continuously nodding to stylistic modes of German Expressionism.
