French illustrator and artist, living in Berlin and born in the 80’s. She studied at the Saint-Etienne School of Art and Design and at Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin. She is regularly collaborating with music band, and also the Slow Galerie, Paris, the Serigraffeur, Neurotitan and Supalife in Berlin as the villa Noailles, Hyères. Since 2010, she is using hand made silk-screen printing, from the drawing, with ink, brush and quill, to the print. Julie is creating a colorful bestiary, mixed of lightness and power, tinted with humor, but also permeated by more symbolic subjects: global warming, population separation and multiculturalism, infiltration of the wildness in the urban… Her digestive lines of her drawings swing between sensuality and morbid fascination, a bitter sweet fantasy world, inhabited by cute creatures and mysterious beasts. Her last set, Kopfkino, is about the Kiez of Kreuzberg, animal meeting, alive cemetery and Berlin’s wall crossed over a cosmopolitan pack, message with a strong symbolic resonance…
Intuitive and personal paintings are an intimate exploration of identity and persona. She captures a sensitive and expressive natural state that lies just beneath the surface of each moment. These moments are not necessarily the most beautiful or picturesque. Instead they tell a deeper, richer story of the whole range of emotions because she is not afraid to depict her subjects at their most vulnerable. When her gaze becomes introspective she applies this same level of subversive sensitivity to her own figure. The result is a raw and uncompromising look at an extremely poignant and transitional period of her own life. Painting allows her to express her subjective perception of reality. Each stroke of her brush adds texture to the surface of the canvas, mimicking the unevenness inherent in our own selfrepresentation. It is because of this unadulterated honesty that her portraits have such a power to communicate their emotional depth.

Born in the Bahamas (naturalized Dutch), Dale Grant has spent most of his years living in Paris, New York, Amsterdam and Berlin. After graduating from university with a Masters Degree in International Relations, he followed his heart and became a photographer specializing in both fine art and commercial photography (fashion, still lifes and portraits). Dale has always enjoyed experimenting with lighting in his photography and it is his distinct lighting style that has distinguished his work from his peers. For his gallery work he is influenced by the lighting seen in the paintings of the Dutch masters. The photo shown in this exhibition, ”Fade 2016”, is a part of his series that captures the distinctive charactistics that flowers have when they begin to wither and die.
He says of the series: ”I find that as flowers begin to wither they finally show their unique beauty when their petals open fully and their vivid colors become more muted in tone. Beauty is seen in the fragility of flowers as the petals become translucent allowing light to shine through them adding texture and form to the photographic image. Flowers all begin life looking rather similar but it is at the moment when they begin to wither and eventually die that we witness their true individual beauty.”Dale’s work is collected by international collectors and has been shown in numerous gallery exhibitions.

I’m a musician, researcher, and activist, based in London. In the 1960s I won a school photography prize, but then abandoned serious photography for most of my adult life. In early 2013 I began making art pictures again. I obtain satisfaction from seeking to look beneath the functions and identities of everyday objects and places to discover and highlight hidden underlying forms, emotions, and shapes. I don’t plan my photographs. They get taken while I’m doing something else, at moments where my visual and emotional attention gets strongly drawn to something, and I quickly reach for the camera. Similarly, the equipment I use is that which I happened to have in the house, nothing specially bought for the purpose (Iphone, MacBook Pro with Iphoto editing suite, and a £50 Nikon Coolpix L29 16MP 5x Zoom Compact Digital Camera). I display my photos online – alongside art I like – on the free Pictify art blog http://pictify.saatchigallery.com/user/johnsloboda (my work is in folders entitled “originals”). This expresses my identification with the potential for art and artistry to be a universal and ubiquitous gift, available to everyone as maker and consumer.
A photographer, sculptor and performance artist based in western Massachusetts, in the United States. His photographic work ranges from studies of wild nature to explorations of the human relationship to nature, both from the perspective of a nostalgic desire to return to an Edenic nature, and from the perspective of our real, modern, fractured relationship to nature: as another place to find power, control and the resources for material wealth. In his work, “nature” can be a wild forest but also a weedy, polluted, urban lot, or corn fields stretching to the horizon. Photography has been his primary medium for over a decade but in 1994 he received an MFA in ceramics from Cranbrook Academy of Art.

after being a commercial photographer for some years, jens junge started his journey which led to the work he presents under the name of NICHTLICHT. the combination of the digitalisation & former work experience generated a strong will to bring more character into the final result of photography – the print. a little while later he started to work with a specific rough, but still smooth appearing recycling cardboard. After understanding what the material was asking from him to do, it had a strong impact on his way of working with the camera. Ever since, he donates a huge amount of his time creating a collection of pictures for the material. Eachsheet is cut & sorted by hand for every single print.
