Evolving Experimentations

Toronto-based artist Joan Andal Romano questions public and private domains – what to share with the world and what to keep as hers alone. Vulnerability is at the core of her practice. She reads magazines from back to front and also views people in this way; when her mindset is free and heart is open, strangers become friends and indifference to encompassment.

Perceptive Observations

Martin Veigl is an award-winning Austrian artist. His compositions offer collaged portraits with an intuitive blend of colours and forms; a complementary colour palette draws attention to anonymous figures as they are caught in states of transition. Veigl has exhibited widely and his solo show is at Schnitzler Lindsberger Galerie, Graz until 10 April.

Looking Forward

Miroslavo is a Czech painter based in Barcelona. A varied background drives him to explore new techniques, colour combinations and tools in the creation of highly expressive canvasses, each offering a bold point of view.
