Variation rythmique by Olivier Julia

March 2023 –¬†French born and Amsterdam living artist Olivier Julia has created a new body of work titled Variation rythmique. Based on meticulously made 14×14 cm relief blocks – from beautiful cut, hand-assembled and painted oakwood – this new series consists of seven different artworks that each will be made in an edition of three. The smallest artworks are Variation rythmique IA and IB, measuring 14×14 cm, the largest artwork is Variation rythmique IX, measuring 42×42 cm and consisting of nine rotated and assembled relief blocks.

This new series by Olivier Julia will be launched at the Affordable Art Fair in London Battersea this month and subsequently shown at Art Karlsruhe in May this year.

Amy Gensers’ nature inspired paper reliefs

January 2023 – Arriving at the gallery this month are several new artworks by Connecticut-based artist Amy Genser. Carrying titles that speak to ones imagination such as Studio Sunset, Cradled, Kelp Rising and Stretch, her beautiful rolled mulberry paper reliefs on acrylic painted backdrops are truly amazing. She continues to be fascinated by the flow of water, the shape of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed. Her pieces bring to mind aerial landscape views, satellite imagery, and biological cellular processes.

Marking the 10th year of our cooperation we are happy to offer these new artworks to our European art lovers and collectors. Each work is framed in a bespoke white wooden frame with museum glass.
