    The concealment of daily and mundane objects under the pretexts of protection, safekeeping and such, engenders a new mode of representation that consists of the mystery of the visible... These concealed objects, appearing out of nowhere in nature or in our daily life, in an unexpected time and place come across as meticulously crafted or downright mundane so as to chase of a threat. The individual in the grips of fragility, protection or anxiety for one's possession enjoys watching the monuments of this selfish silence. Urging a desire to touch or explore in the viewer, these objects transform into surreal forms in our daily lives.

    'The Portrait of 108' is, as shown, about the Japanese military sexual slavery women (or ‘comfort women’) in Korea. I want my work to stir up questions about our tragic past and human dignity, and portray the reflection on violated women’s rights as seen by men as sexual objects.

    Grids is an experimental series of graphical poster drafts. The posters combine collaged holiday photographs and 3D-generated sculptures. While the content and materials vary from work to work, a clearly defined grid is drawn through every poster.

    My work is messy in an organized way. I portrait myself in most of my work, it’s a way of me understanding how I’m actually feeling at the time (sometimes things get strange) I have a tendency to represent strong female icons, detailed backgrounds, graphic patterns and hidden/not so hidden messages.

    This project is a game that chains together features of polaroid photography and a digital vibe. Breaking things down, seeing them from a different perspective, in a different context, helps me find something I can relate to. I strive to depict the variety of forms, both real and imagined- taking something, reimagining it, exploring its possibilities and making something new with it.

    Abandoned spaces and objects, which do not attract that much attention in cities where pace of life is so swift and where spaces are intertwined, remain standing in rural areas as monuments that represent the values of the past and reveal the social, economic, cultural and ethical positions of their users. On the other hand, their inanimation and lifelessness that come from lack of ownership are reflected around and make those places dimmer, just like landscapes from a post-apocalyptic world.

    painting

    Maureen Meyer is a painter inspired by her background in fashion and textile design. Her process begins with fabric experimentations using indigo dye. She combines various resist dye techniques, including stitching and clamping to create unexpected patterns on the materials. Meyer references this process rooted in craft to create the abstract compositions in her paintings. The rich indigo color is achieved by painting multiple layers of indigo pigment mixed with an acrylic polymer. The realized paintings are intricate interpretations of the dyed fabrics, exploring their luminous and organic qualities.

    'Pool' is inspired by the paintings that David Hockney dedicated to the swimming pool, in which the different scenes are developed around one.

    In this series, the minimalist compositions predominate, the geometric forms and the luminous colors, where the water and its movement have a special stardom.

    The scenes that are shown are quite daily, giving the photographs a certain costumbrismo. The characters that appear in them are totally unconcerned, and seem to be enjoying a quiet pool day. We see them immersed, swimming and playing in an idyllic environment full of vivid colors in the purest pop art style.

    illustration

    André Catarino's thematic concerns, exploring subjects such as human-inflected landscapes and late capitalist ruins, and appropriation of other media composition techniques and reproduction systems (especially past photographic and cinematographic techniques) puts André Catarino in a central vein of Western thought and art-related concerns, which connect him to diverse names and oeuvres such as Atget's, Walter Benjamin's and the Bechers's.

    'Landscape,' as of course, is always already a human category, a section and separative bloc acted upon the natural biosphere, one that reveals cultural conditions. The portability, as it were, of landscape creates, paradoxically, a distance from, and a classification of, nature. Catarino's particular choice of represented scenes – trainways, mining structures, abandoned civilian buildings or military installations, monumental ruins, or vestiges of abandoned industrial and capitalist goods – reinforce the coherence of the artist's research. Point in fact, André Catarino's insistence on the theme of ruins and destruction, frequently through fire (which allies itself neatly and pertinently with his choice of materials and chromatic outlook), links him in many other ways to the work of German philosopher Walter Benjamin.
