About the Artist
Originally from France, Pascal is an artist and sculptor currently living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. You are invited to view samples of his wood and metal sculptures. Included are wall pieces and outdoor installations.
From my earliest beginnings as an artist, my constant intention has been to involve the viewer as the key element in the totality of the sculpture. To give birth to a sculpture or series of sculptures that will offer the opportunity for the viewer to participate in a conscious and sub-conscious dialogue with it, and in relation to the sculpture results in the powerful experience of inspiration, realization, motivation, self-inquiry, and infused creativity.

About the Artist
American abstractionist Kimber Berry has captured the attention of the global art community over the past decade with her explosively colorful, visually dense, multi-dimensional canvases and installations. Often done on industrial materials, she masterfully and gleefully integrates elements of the digital and pure paint. She creates a symphonic dance between the virtual world and the organic universe and challenges the viewer to discern between them.
Berry’s universe is an ultra-world that exists within and without the time/space continuum. In one moment the viewer is taken beneath the ocean’s surface into a kaleidoscopic world of color and form suggesting coral reefs. In the next instant we are taken outside of the earth’s atmosphere and even into other dimensions – and back – at the speed of our perception. Kimber Berry’s world is consummately informed by her childhood.
Originally from Los Angeles, Berry grew up surrounded by over-the-top advertising and the glitz of Hollywood. This background was the genesis that fueled her desire to explore the psychological experience of living in an over-stimulated society, constantly bombarded by media noise. Her installations and paintings interlace, overlap and converge upon themselves in much the same manner of existing in multiple environments at once. The fluidity of paint and the brush stroke act as narrative tools to recreate the psychological compression of stimuli found in our society.
Berry creates simulated environments in which the observer can psychologically step within, creating an experience that engages the viewer on a deeper level. Moving beyond the rigid boundaries of painting distinctly within the edge of a canvas, Berry provides a fluid existence that allows her art to melt into, embed, connect, and disconnect, through the aspiration to fully engage a wall- essentially, becoming part of the space. Her paintings and installations exist in the psychological space between object and life, reality and illusion.
About the Artist
Korean contemporary art has for some decades now revealed a very special sensibility – neither Chinese nor Japanese, but containing elements that are reminiscent of both. Lee Jaehyo’s work shows immense respect for natural materials, but also the will to dominate what nature has provided. One is immediately struck by the perfection of his craftsmanship, and led to reflect on the many long hours of hard physical labour that must have gone into the production of these immaculate, yet also intricate objects.
About the Artist
Mauro’s art takes a critical yet light-hearted approach, relying on symbols to create meaning. He unites Pop aesthetics with social comment to address some of the most pressing and difficult issues in today’s society in a way that is subtle and accessible, without being trite, shocking or obscure.
