Ann-Marie James (Derek Hill Foundation Scholar, October-December 2013) lives and works in London and Suffolk. Recent solo exhibitions include “Proserpina”, Karsten Schubert, London, and “Musée Imaginaire”, Knoerle & Battig, Winterthur. Recent group exhibitions include “Here We Go, Part II: Volume”, Karsten Schubert, London, and “The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2013”.

James’ paintings in acrylic and oil are built up through layer upon layer of materials and techniques. From a pencil drawing based upon a historic sculpture she produces a silkscreen and through layers of print, drawing and paint the repetition of figurative elements gives way to a complex abstract composition.

Ann-Marie James (Derek Hill Foundation Scholar, ottobre-dicembre 2013) vive e lavora a Londra e nel Suffolk. Le sue recenti mostre personali sono “Proserpina”, Karsten Schubert, Londra, e “Musée Imaginaire”, Knoerle & Battig, Winterthur. Fra le collettive recenti, “Here We Go, Part II: Volume”, Karsten Schubert, Londra, e “The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2013”.

I dipinti ad acrilico e olio di Ann-Marie James sono costruiti attraverso una stratificazione di materiali e tecniche. Da un disegno a matita ispirato a una scultura storica, ella produce una serigrafia e attraverso strati di stampa, disegno, e pittura, la ripetizione di elementi figurativi dà luogo a una complessa composizione astratta.

Daniele Genadry (Abbey Scholar in Painting, October 2013-June 2014) lives and works in Beirut and New York City. Recent exhibitions include “After Hours”, Kunsthalle Galapagos, New York City; “Journeys”, Beirut Exhibition Center, Beirut; “2nd AIM Biennial”, Bronx Museum, New York City (2013); “Blindspot”, Agial Gallery, Beirut; “Sightlines”, Coop Gallery, Nashville, TN (2012).

Daniele Genadry’s work considers the construction of visual experience through memory, movement and migration. She uses various media to create and translate images of the landscape and examines how this mediation alters our perception of time and space. Multiple viewpoints, decentralized images, and shifting frames within the work address the distance necessary to merge a documented moment with the narrative of passing geographies.

Danièle Genadry (Abbey Scholar in Painting, ottobre 2013-giugno 2014) vive e lavora a Beirut e New York City. Le sue mostre recenti includono “After Hours”, Kunsthalle Galapagos, New York City; “Journeys”, Beirut Exhibition Center, Beirut; “2nd AIM Biennial”, Bronx Museum, New York City (2013); “Blindspot”, Agial Gallery, Beirut; “Sightlines”, Coop Gallery, Nashville, Tennessee (2012).

Il lavoro di Danièle Genadry riguarda la costruzione dell’esperienza visiva attraverso la memoria, il movimento e la migrazione. Ella usa vari media per creare e tradurre immagini del paesaggio e esamina come questa mediazione alteri la nostra percezione di tempo e spazio. Punti di vista multipli, immagini decentrate, e cornici che slittano all’interno dell’opera affrontano la distanza che è necessaria a fondere un momento documentato con la narrazione di geografie in transito.

Archie Franks (Sainsbury Scholar in Painting, October 2013-September 2014) lives and works in London.  He studied at City and Guilds of London Art School (2006-2009) and the Royal Academy Schools (2009-2012) in London. Recent exhibitions include “Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2013”, Spike Island, Bristol, touring to the ICA, London, 2013-14; “Hold the Fort!”, FORT, London, 2013; “Original Copy 3”, Peles Empire, Cluj, Romania, 2012; “Original Copy 2”, Peles Empire, London, 2012.

Archie Franks’ paintings combine mundane domestic realities with the grandeur of art history. They are an attempt to juxtapose the sublime and the paltry, or even to reconcile the everyday with the magnificent. Motifs of animals and food are a constant, along with elements taken from the baroque and rococo periods.  They are made using juicy, thick, decadent paint.

Archie Franks ( Sainsbury Scholar in Painting, ottobre 2013-settembre 2014 ) vive e lavora a Londra. Ha studiato alla City and Guilds of London Art School (2006-09) e alle Royal Academy Schools (2009-12) a Londra. Le su mostre recenti includono “Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2013”, Spike Island, Bristol, e ICA, Londra, 2013-14; “Hold the Fort!”, FORT, Londra, 2013; “Original Copy 3”, Peles Empire, Cluj, Romania, 2012; “Original Copy 2”, Peles Empire, Londra, 2012.

I dipinti di Archie Franks combinano le realtà di tutti i giorni con la grandezza della storia dell’arte. Sono un tentativo di giustapporre il sublime e il meschino, o perfino di conciliare quotidianità e magnificenza. I motivi di animali e cibo sono costanti, insieme con elementi tratti da barocco e rococò. Essi sono realizzati con una succosa, spessa, decadente pittura.

Julia Davis (Australia Council Resident, October-December 2013) is a Sydney based artist.

Davis uses a wide range of materials and processes. Her site related work has been installed in a variety of landscapes including salt lakes, deserts, coastal precincts, galleries and the built environment.

Julia Davis (Australia Council Resident, ottobre-dicembre 2013) è un artista di Sydney.

Il suo lavoro ‘site related’ è stato inserito in una varietà di luoghi tra cui laghi salati, deserti, aree costiere, gallerie, e l’ambiente edificato. In questa mostra approfondisce le sue esplorazioni nel paesaggio come spazio culturale – uno spazio formato dalla cultura e che informa la cultura, e la premessa che la psicologia del ‘luogo’ sia alla base dell’identità.

Marius von Brasch (Abbey Fellow in Painting, October-December 2013) completed a practice-based PhD in 2012. He explored the notion of ‘aura’ through the lens of materialist metaphysics (especially Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy of ‘Becoming’), in painting expanding to digital media. Recent exhibitions include “Distance however near it may be” (solo), Winchester Gallery, Winchester, 2012; and “Feint” (group), Rag Factory, London, 2011.

For the Rome fellowship, Marius von Brasch applies his practice – juxtaposing the ‘authentic’/handmade with the ‘dispersed’/digital – to the notion of ‘vocation’. Starting from Caravaggio’s “La vocazione di san Matteo” as source image, the project questions how vocation can be thought about and visualized without depending on a transcendent source. Outcomes are drawings, paintings and a video.

Marius von Brasch (Abbey Fellow in Painting, ottobre-dicembre 2013) ha completato nel 2012 un PhD ‘practice-based’. Ha esplorato il concetto di ‘aura’ attraverso la lente della metafisica materialista (soprattutto la filosofia del ‘Divenire’ di Gilles Deleuze), espandendo il lavoro dalla pittura espansione ai media digitali. Le sue mostre recenti includono “Distance however near it may be” (personale), Winchester Gallery, Winchester, 2012, e “Feint” (collettiva), Rag Factory, Londra, 2011.

Nella sua residenza romana, Marius von Brasch applica la sua pratica – giustapponendo lo ‘autentico’/fatto a mano al ‘disperso’/ digitale – alla nozione di ‘vocazione’. Partendo dalla “Vocazione di San Matteo” di Caravaggio come immagine sorgente, il progetto pone in questione come la vocazione possa essere pensata e visualizzata senza dipendere da una fonte trascendente. I risultati sono disegni, dipinti e un video.
