My exploration of form is rooted in my passion for design, invention and technology.  From the artful drawings of Leonardo Di Vinci to the computer generated creations of Industrial Light and Magic, I am inspired by the human imagination and I strive to understand the hidden principals that shape our understanding of the world and are the genesis of our best creations. 

My work explores the fusion of the disciplines of architecture, industrial design and fine art.  Each piece is as much a realization of an abstract design concept as it is a unique work of three-dimensional art. 

A strict and systematic organization of components define this work and manifest a distinct unifying methodology that has both physical and spiritual origins.  At first glance, the geometric forms seem strangely familiar as if seen somewhere before – but where – when? Upon closer examination – perhaps the designs are remnants of some distant and secrete civilization or even an, as of  yet, unknown and mysterious future. The forms are intentionally abstract giving shape to a brief moment of design inspiration. Schematic concepts emerge as built objects without the practical or functional restrictions that necessarily accompany the development of an architectural or industrial product.

The final sculpted artwork is derived from an initial “thumbnail” sketch. The preliminary shapes are explored and refined through multiple iterations as 3-d computer models. The work combines the “tried and true” techniques of old-fashioned craftsmanship with today’s most advanced rapid prototyping technologies such as CAD modeling, 3-D printing, and CNC fabrication. From creation through completion this dichotomy of ‘handmade’ and ‘computer generated’ informs the development and execution of the work.

Particular finish applications such as weathering and rust recall an ‘earlier time’ in the story of certain pieces  – the scars of a past life.  Nevertheless, the work has a timeless quality – seeming to exist in the past, the present and the future – simultaneously.

Suze Woolf has watched glaciers shrink and burned forests increase. At first, she painted beautiful intact landscapes but was compelled to portray their ecological disturbances. Portraits of individual trees became her metaphor for human impact. Despite her anxiety, she also sees unusual beauty. Fire-carved snags are all the same – carbonized, eaten away; yet each different – the fire’s physics and the tree’s structure create unique sculptures. Painting is her meditation on climate crisis. Suze works to confront climate in painting, paper casting, pyrography, installation, and artist books. Like her best work, the results are both beautiful and disturbing. She has exhibited throughout the American West but also across the US and Canada. Her work is in public collections as well as many private ones. She has received awards from arts organizations, universities, residencies in Zion, Glacier, Capitol Reef and North Cascades National Parks, Grand Canyon Trust; and art colonies Banff Centre, Vermont Studio Center, Willowtail Springs, Jentel, Playa, Centrum, Mineral School, and Sitka Center for Art & Ecology.

Making the blank paper speak

Ulla Hasen´s visual worlds try to sound out the deeper roots of language. For in the beginning there was not the Word, but patterns and gestures that must be deciphered to find one’s way as an individual in the world and to assert oneself.

Her work is therefore based on the assumption that patterns and gestures- despite all cultural differentiation – are readable in basic features because they are inscribed in our biological system. She starts paintings without intention and observes what is happening in front of her until the white surface with traces of color begins to speak to her. She is driven by curiosity as to what will unfold before her eyes this time, as the “first reader”, so to speak, and by the hope that other people will find their way into the narrative stream of the picture, each with their own background of experience. She understands her pictures – just like language in its poetic dimension – as resonance spaces. Therefore, they usually have no title, because they do not want to explain themselves, but in their openness to meaning invite to feel what energies and memories are inherent to the colors and shapes, and perhaps to translate this into one´s own verbal language.

My name is Marie Su Loher and I am a multidisciplinary visual artist with background in Fashion design and textile for 20 years and now 5 years full time in art.

I currently work and live between London and Ibiza with my family, where I have my atelier and showroom.

My work is an exploration of consciousness, to raise my own and inspire others. To connect to our true essence: love.  Finding creative ways to connect to the divine nature within, to feel fulfilled and in balance.

 I express femininity, elements, zen and simplicity through colour and geometry patterns. Working with colour as a core of my work, the effect of colour on our mood emotions and energy.

 Cultivate deeper observation through art making process  and its healing power with years of practice.

Working with texture, i choose textile as a medium. Personally i have a passion for textile and also see it as an versatile 2d and 3d material.

As a designer I also strive to make all my art and art objects usable that can fit to create the perfect home and make a really striking interior.

Working with interior designers creating bespoke textile panels that are beautiful and also serve as sound reflectors making a home more sound isolated. I also create interior art object with my art textile like matching pillows to the paintings and curtains. I believe art is important part of our environment and wish to share it with the viewer.
