LORNA MARSH (SOUTH AFRICA)
Lorna Marsh  was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1949. It was there that she began her formal training, which included private studio instruction with professors from the London Royal Academy of Art. Marsh later concluded her education at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Initially, Marsh was exposed to traditional master painters of the English landscape, Constable and Gainsborough. However, the artists who had the most profound impact on Marsh’s work, were the modern masters Mother well, Twombly and Tàpies. While Marsh’s artistic vision may be grounded in her classical training and her esteem for twentieth century visionaries, she has evolved a unique style that transcends standard interpretative mechanisms.

Marsh is a figurative expressionist who blends symbolism, surrealism, and expressionism to create fresh images, which reflect upon the human condition. Her images are timeless. That is, they defy the viewer’s cultural, philosophical and political constructs and command a new language for interpretation. The viewer must relinquish his or her conditioning in order to decipher Marsh’s vision. By demanding that the viewer approach her art unfettered by social mores, Marsh appeals to the universal language of human beings.

Marsh achieves her vision not only through the images she creates but also through her mastery of media. It is because of her classical discipline that Marsh possesses the prowess to manipulate her materials. Her hands wield the paints, which shape her images and are themselves the tools for application; nothing lies between Marsh and her surface. Consequently, Marsh’s surfaces are layered – infused with abstruse images, which invite the viewer to form both emotional and intellectual connections with her work.

ABOUT ALDO CASTILLO PROJECTS
 
Given the current world market fluctuations and ever expanding nature of the Art Fair business, Aldo Castillo Projects is offing a focused platform where galleries, artists, and the supporters of the arts are joined and showcased in a trustworthy environment.  Art fairs are selected on their forward thought, innovation and inspiration as well as harboring a deep appreciation for art, where art is respected, researched, collected and profitable.

EMIL ALZAMORA (NY) 

Emil Alzamora was born in 1975 in Lima, Peru. He was raised in Boca Grande, Florida, where he attended state university and graduated with a BFA magna cum laude in 1998. He started his sculpting career in 1998 in collaboration with Polich Art Works in Hudson Valley. Since his departure in early 2001 he has worked full-time on his sculptures and exhibited regularly across the United States.

JAMES MATHISON (VENEZUELA)

 

His male nude sculptures transmit silent feelings of loneliness, melancholy and mutation. The “power of dialogue” is to be found in that silence. He’s known by his exquisite anatomical studies of the male body but in this show he mutates them with engraved lines of text that appears to be “coming from the interior of the being.” Once again, the “power of dialogue” is coming out through their silence.

Mathison is interested in a dialogue with certain artistic traditions such as those by Michelangelo, Rodin, Degas, Giacometti and Zitman. These traditions go back to external proposals on humanity: to be before man, before matter, transformed into an idea of mankind.

James Mathison lives and works in Caracas, Venezuela. He took courses at the St. Martin’s Institute of Arts in London, England. He is included in museum collections in Venezuela and the United States.

SHANTAMANI (INDIA)

Shantamanis body of work is generally preoccupied by fragmentation. With her latest pieces Shantamani goes a step further: from fragmentation to disintegration. Charcoal is the last stage before ashes. Just before turning to dust, the wood of the tree still bears the imprint of the plant, its trace memory. Through oxidation by fire it continues interacting with the world one last time before consuming itself into flames.

It is a metaphor of lingering material manifestations. Shantamani has made rustic charcoal into an allegory of the passage between being and non-being. She denounces the modern myth of eternal youth in a world where all is good. Charcoal bricks map the splintering and reassembling

of the tree of life into coagulated living-dead entities. Like ghosts, through their tragic example, they stay just long enough to sound their warning. There is a mystery inherent in her work: are we witnesses poised before or after a major cataclysm? In the face of such disquieting stillness and disorienting anguish, we are hard up to say whether a calamity has already taken place or if it is about to strike.
