New artworks by UK artist Fabio Coruzzi, Los Angeles artists Erin Hammond and Judy Zimbert, Baltimore artist Gel Jamlang, and German artists Bettina Mauel, Carl Smith and Gerhard Völkle.
Opening Reception Thurs, April 18, 6:30-8:30pm.
Erin Nicole Hammond was born in Milwaukee, WI. She studied Fine Art with an emphasis on painting and sculpture at University of Wisconsin Parkside. Erin recently moved to Los Angeles. She expresses an eclectic style of fashion statement through her work. Many of her artworks are created first by writing which later turns to sketching, and finally into visual understanding.
After a first career in radio and television, Judy Zimbert was able to channel her energies fully into what she’d always dreamed of doing…painting. Having studied for years in Taos, New Mexico with famed chiaroscuro artist David Leffel, she began a long examination of German Expressionist Art and incorporated the freshness of contemporary images. This was followed by a series of portrait commissions that helped refine her artistic voice.
Bettina Mauel was born 1959 in Wuppertal, Germany. She studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy with Professor Gerhard Richter. Since 1984 Bettina lives and works in Cologne, Germany. Vitality and sensuality are expressed in her paintings. “I paint what I experience, "she articulates, “This includes landscapes, flowers, people and always dancing.”
Gerhard Völkle was born 1953 in Lörrach, Germany and studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule Basel, Switzerland. The connection to the Spanish island Lanzarote and the fascination with the ubiquitous volcanic rocks has long been reflected in his artworks. In order to capture the same color and structure as his metalworks on canvas, he is using the same media, the rust. A special technique to create metal oxidation allows Völkle to work with real rust which creates amazing visual effects.
