Maritta Winter (1961) has been an active artist for over twenty years. Since 2007 she has exhibited at international art fairs such as Art Prague, Europ’Art Genève, Salon des Beaux Arts Paris and Art Karlsruhe. The artist works in large formats for public space as well as in various scales for the art lover. She draws her inspiration from her intuitive feel for growth, architectonics and movement. A recurring theme in her work is the union of two volumes and the unfolding of movement that seems to swing into the space. “The shapes find me,” is how she describes her intuition. This has to do with feeling - instinctually perceiving volumes, edges and transitions between shapes. It is also a visual process that involves determining the point at which the outline of the shape achieves perfection. W: MARITTAWINTER.COM I: @MARITTA.WINTER.ART
Omar Rigoni was born in Zürich on October 2, 1980. In his paintings everything is in motion, longing for boundlessness, dancing on a volcano. Like bubbling lava his paintings radiate heat and colorful energy and blazes real love of life. Simultaneously, the viewer senses the restlessness underneath the colorful, bubbling surface which keeps the viewer’s perception busy. The subjects of his paintings deal with anger, fear, frustration and the terrible impotence of people towards injustice, cruelty - of body and mind -, the power of climate change, terminal medical verdicts, and more. They may not always be enjoyable subjects, but they are experienced everyday by everybody. Therefore, Omar’s paintings are easily accessible to the viewer. People recognize their own fears, their own vulnerability. They connect. W: RIGONI-ART.COM I: @OMARRIGONI
