CIRO DUCLOS


1991, Amsterdam, the Netherlands // Lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Ciro Duclos was born and raised in Amsterdam and graduated from the Royal Academy of the Hague in 2015. After his graduation he continued working in the Dutch capital, has been included in various group-shows and was shown prominently during Milan’s Salone del Mobile of 2016. His work is often sculptural as opposed to flat surface techniques such as painting or printing and handles themes such as distance and borders in order to touch upon subjects such as time and space; "Growing up I used to sneak into building sites in urban areas; in-between places within busy areas where time seems to be at a stand-still and in which space becomes an element in which light is the only element that creates movement". His sculptures often are comprised of used building fences or other materials used to camouflage building sites. Showing these materials in a solitary state does not so much show the tension between the spectator and a specific object, but reveals the distance we have to our daily surroundings, invoking a sense of virtuality to everyday objects.

LOUISE BOURGEOIS


1911, Paris, France // 2010, New York, USA

Louise Bourgeois was a French - American artist who lived and worked most of her life in New York. She best is known for her large outdoor sculptures such as Maman, installation works and her drawings and prints. Themes found in her work include domesticity, family and femininity but also death and the subconsious. Although she has always been in circles of abstract artists, such as Fernand Leger in the thirties and de Kooning and Pollock in the fifties, she always stayed true to the figurative with sculptures of spiders and architectural forms such as houses and cages.

ANISH KAPOOR


1954, Bombay, India // Lives and works in London, United Kingdom

One of the most influential artists of the 1990's, Anish Kapoor is known for his grand themes such as emptiness or decay, his use of deep colors such as dark blue and red (and most recently vantablack), but most and foremost the British Indian artist is known for the size of his sculptures, such as the one in the Tate Turbine Hall, or the Cloud Gate in Chicago.

Less well-known are his early etchings. In these works he has shown the themes mentioned before in this text but with much more subtlety; with fine, sharp lines, subdued colors and in graspable sizes, which in most cases maybe even capture the essence of his work even better, as they are, in a way, rid of the white noise of the grandeur of his later, much better known, work.

NATHALIE DU PASQUIER


1957, Bordeaux, France // Lives and works in Milan, Italy

Painter, furniture designer, textile designer, graphic designer. Though there is much in common between these job titles, and there are certainly a lot of creatives carrying these ones all at once, there aren't many as succesful in each of those as du Pasquier. Starting out as a painter in the late seventies, the French artist received critical acclaim for her works with hard lines and geometric shapes. A few years later, she and her boyfriend, George Sowden, were asked to join the Memphis group, the designers group that defined the eighties. Grouped around the enigmatic and influential designer Ettore Sotsass the group garnered a lot of attention with their furniture comprising geometric shapes, synthetic materials and flat, printed surfaces.

The printed surfaces of Memphis furniture, designed by du Pasquier with their neon-like colors and geometric shapes became  not only iconic for the avant-garde design group, but even more so for the late eighties as a whole, as her style quickly inspired brands such as MTV to use in their graphic designs.

Now, 30 years later, du Pasquier is back on track in her first vocation; painting. In 2015 she has had a major retrospective at SFMoMA followed by a show at the legendary Pace gallery in New York in 2017.
