Ian Howorth is a photographer currently based in Brighton, UK. Having lived in various places in his childhood. Ian’s work seeks to release a sense of nostalgia from his youth when he used to visit the UK with his father. Ian tells us: “I pursue what is close to me. The things that are still there everyday. But that are sort of ignored and not considered. By exploring England through its changing color palettes. Its buildings. Its structures and signage. I’m trying to go back to a past that I remember as a young boy. Whereas England was nothing more than a vacation destination for me. ”

The Arcadia book.

Ian’s first book, Arcadia, published by Setanta Books in 2019, is now out of print. This first series explored themes that are still evident in Ian’s work today.

Osang Gwon

Sculptor

Osang Gwon’s mission is to demolish the line that separates the medium of sculpture from that of photography. He accumulates photographs to build sculptural forms. He sets up sculptural forms to compose photographs. Gwon relishes the ambiguity that confuses the viewer. Is his work two-dimensional or three-dimensional? Or both simultaneously?

This creative method fuels the artist’s fascination with modern marketing. Shiny appearances and consumer culture. He derives themes and extracts motifs as the subject of his works. Academically trained in sculpture, Gwon has aroused interest in the circles of sculptors as well as photographers.

Deodorant Type.

Dedicated to his most famous series, “Deodorant Type”, the book Gwon, Osang: The Sculpture was published by the Arario Gallery. His work can be found in numerous local and international exhibitions. As well as in publications that present and present contemporary Korean art. Gwon has organized solo exhibitions in South Korea, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her work was featured in the international traveling exhibition, Roundabout, which traveled from New Zealand to Israel.

Evelyn Bencicova

Photographer

Evelyn Bencicova (born in Bratislava, 1992) is a visual designer specializing in photography and art direction. Strong of its experience in fine arts. In New Media Studies (University of Applied Arts, Vienna). Bencicova’s practice combines academic research with an interest in contemporary culture. It creates a unique aesthetic space in which the conceptual meets the visual.

Evelyn’s work is never quite what it first appears to be. His photographs represent meticulously controlled compositions. Characterized by aesthetic sterility. Tinted with poetic nuances of timeless desire and nostalgia. Evelyn constructs narrative scenarios. Convincing who blur the boundaries between reality. Memory and imagination, “fictions based on truth”. His disturbingly beautiful visual language. Set in oddly symbolic environments. This allows for an in-depth exploration of the themes that take his works far beyond what they reveal at first glance.

While his career began with applied photography. Since 2019, the practice has shifted towards more immersive and experimental forms of storytelling. Through collaborative projects using digital 3D techniques and virtual reality.

Daniel Garbade

Photographer

Daniel Garbade’s images are always surprising with their impressive direct speech. They manage to attract our attention by the purity of their forms. Her photography has this subtle point that sets it apart from anything our eyes are used to seeing. Sometimes he borders on surrealism with his usual sense of humor. But all of his works follow his own recognizable aesthetic. Garbade places objects on different types of surfaces to give them heterogeneous textures. When taking his photographs, his goal is not so much the originality of the composition. But how to achieve images full of poetry. Giving them their own identity and making any object attractive, no matter how ordinary.

Exhibition.

Garbade has been exhibited in major galleries and museums in Spain. Swiss. Austria. France. Italy. United States and Mexico. He has participated in art fairs like ART Basel and ARCO. His last exhibitions in 2019 and 2020 took place at the Ateneo de Madrid, at the Ignacio del Rio gallery in Malaga. At the Clemente Museum in Toledo and at the St Johann Museum in Austria.
