Alejandra Sieder

Alejandra Sieder (Venezuela, 1974) is a Graphic Designer and Visual Artist, graduated from the Miguel Neumann Design Institute in Caracas, Venezuela.

Sieder lives and works in Sydney, Australia. She creates works that go beyond the limits of painting and installation. Made with canvas, wood, Japanese ink and acrylic, Sieder’s work is characterized by his intense study of form, volume and materiality, as well as his great aesthetic care and conceptual subtlety, while his practice emphasizes temporal aspects and performative of the creative act.

These recent works show the characteristic methodology of the artist, which consists of creating works of art in three dimensions. Sieder is based on the presentation of the movement for the effect and that it played with the viewer in the first person. Its objective is to involve the audience in a new dimension within the visual experience and create a piece that effectively expresses the interrelation between matter, space and the sensations of the viewer.

In these new works, Alejandra Sieder transcends the limits of her usual practice by orchestrating works in 3D. This particular work combines the volume of matter and the visual of monochrome colour, becoming an unprecedented installation creating volumes in the gallery space. In the exhibition, the artist not only demonstrates her absolute mastery of the techniques she has been using but also her constant and versatile artistic evolution.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Since childhood, I have been focused on analysing the nuances of human behaviour. Later in my life, and through my studies in psychology, I have come to realise that often people are unable to reflect and identify the intrusive thoughts that fill their psyche, thus precluding any attempt to receive the so much needed help. This dark hole can be felt by many as a hopeless place. However, my paintings express that there is light in darkness. Through the reflection of oneself with the canvas, transcendence over diminished mental states begin to be possible.

My aim with this artworks was to create a painting in three dimensions. I wanted it to rely on the presentation of motion for effect and to play with the viewer in the first person. My goal is to involve the audience in a new dimension within the viewing experience. I feel that I created a piece that effectively expresses the interrelationship between the matter, space and viewer sensations.

I was interested in the analogy between the objects and human bodies. Rather than regarding the two entities as radically different – one being soulless and functional and the other governed by intuition and insight – I wanted to imply that humans might be more than irrational engines of conflicting lusts and urges, like dysfunctional machines. I wanted for them to feel something in their body through their eyes that reminds them that they are alive in their own bodies.

Greg Azorsky

Greg Azorsky – Greg’s Doodle of the Day Project, launched on Facebook in 2016. Calling his style Abstract Minimalism, Azorsky brings color, structure and joy to doodling. 

Azorsky’s training spans the gamut of both right and left brain contexts of the cortex. He holds a Juris Doctor from Southern Methodist University as well as a Certificate in Graphic Design from the Kansas City Art Institute. When he is not running a successful business in the recognition and awards industry, Azorsky has been a Fellow of the Midwest Jewish Artists Laboratory (2015-2017); Speaker for The Awards and Personalization Association; Kansas City Art Institute instructor (2015); and Co-chairman of The Jewish Arts Festival (2010 and 2013). 

Greg has been a part of several group shows, but in March 2019, The Epsten Gallery in Overland Park, Kansas, presented his first solo exhibition that included 339 individual pieces covering three walls of the galley.  

Work for his Doddle of the Day Project are created on his iPad, touched up on a computer, printed on an Epson Surecolor P800 printer, and mounted on panels or framed. While the doodling started as a pastime, it has now become a prolific artform. Azorsky’s doodle pieces number in excess of 600. 

His Bauhaus Tel Aviv print has been purchased by buyers from around the world and is the best selling print in the Bauhaus Center in Tel Aviv, Israel.  Azorsky also has work in Galerie Schön, Bonn, Germany.
