Interview with the artist: Rol Steimes

Interview with the artist: Rol Steimes

You have taken painting to a new level with “Fire & Steampaintings using fire and steam to create your works. What is your inspiration for this collection? I am not only searching for new ways to express myself through my work but I am also interested in finding new techniques that could fit into my own creation process. I love observing open flames, wood burning or even steam and smoke rising and being blown away by the wind. It is strong and destructive on one side, quiet, beautiful and calming on the other side.  My idea was to use this...

Interview with the artist: Corinne Goetz

Interview with the artist: Corinne Goetz

For those who don’t know you: Who is Corinne Goetz? I am a passionate painter, art lover, wife and mother. I grew up in the northern countryside of Luxemburg in a family where art and music was, and still is an important part of daily life. My grandfather was a painter himself and created mostly designs for local theater stages. Unfortunately I’ve never met him personally but I believe that my twist for theatrical “mise en scène” of figures comes from his over-sized creations. You live in Luxembourg, does the city or the people influence your work? Definitely. Every day...

Interview with the artist: Assy Jans

Interview with the artist: Assy Jans

How did you get into sculpture? Was it a lifelong interest for you? Maybe it’s a lifelong story, my father was painting and sculpting wood for fun, for himself. As a child I was impressed by this and enjoyed watching him working. Since I learned the profession of a fitter I came to know more and more about the characteristics of steel. After creating my first sculpture from the leftovers of a railing, I was curious and tried to give life to this material, which is often said to be cold and hard. Since then I do not consider steel...

“Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.” -Carl Sagan Since the beginning of human history, art has always been a unique instrument to create a connection, to question, and to explore everything in existence. From nature to psychology, from the known to the yet unknown, art has been wielded as a torch to probe mysteries of life, including the vast universe. However, shaping our knowledge of the world has always...

NATURE: THE ETERNAL SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

NATURE: THE ETERNAL SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

“But in my opinion, all things in nature occur mathematically.” -René Descartes Nature is all around us, but as technological inventions evolve and change human relationships, they also change how humans relate with the ecosystem and the environment. Human contact is no longer tangible, sensitive, and physical, it’s achieved through a device. Society, and particularly artists, are being directed to a digitized world, day by day feeling separated from nature. However, despite everything, this genuine and inexhaustible source, remains paramount even in the mechanics of the newest technologies. NATURE AS A SYSTEM The truth is that nature is the most...
