Rabarama - Contemply Gallery Booth 241
Paola Epifani, alias Rabarama, was born in Rome in 1969. She lives and works in Padova, Italy. The daughter of an artist, from her early childhood she showed an inborn talent for sculpture. She started her artistic education at the Arts High School in Treviso, and continued later at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts. She graduated with top marks in 1991 and immediately started taking part in a large number of national and international sculpture competitions, earning growing acclaim with both the critics and the general public alike. Rabarama's sculptures and paintings depict with men, women or hybrid creatures, often eccentric. The skin of the subject created by the artist is always decorated with symbols, letters, hieroglyphics and other figures in a variety of forms. The membrane or cloak that seems to envelop these figures is constantly changing, always adding new signs, symbols and metaphors.
Alexis Silk - Mattson's Fine Art Booth 263
The work of Alexis Silk has been called timeless. Working in cast bronze, hot sculpted blown glass and steel, she explores interrelationships of humanity, culture and industry. Thought provoking works emerge from the intersection of her fascination with the human figure, passion for her molten medium, and desire for conceptual expression. Silk is constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible, sculpting her glass figures entirely freehand while the glass is hot on the end of a blowpipe or punty rod. Her largest figures are close to half her body weight and take a team of six assistants to handle the glass while she is sculpting it. While making intrinsically beautiful objects, her figures are an eloquent exploration of objectification of the body and current cultural issues.
Anna Razumovskaya - Anna Art Publishing Booth 207
With her classic figurative forms, highly acclaimed Russian artist Anna Razumovskaya magically captures the lyrical romanticism of renaissance portraiture, while creating art that is completely modern and original. Anna is inspired by the graceful elegance of the female form, at turns, classically alluring, demure and provocative. Anna's eclectic mix of experiences has enabled her to create a truly unique signature style that resonates with those who share her passion for life. She is a great believer in art's power to heal, transform and inspire others in their journey.
Samir Sammoun - Sammoun Fine Art Booth 233
At his very first Artexpo New York in 1996, Samir Sammoun's originality and unique style caught the attention of viewers, gallerists, collectors and art lovers. With After that initial discovery, the response to his fresh colorful impressionistic style has continued to build over the 20+ years he has showcased his work at Artexpo. Depicting rich landscapes in his wonderfully unique impressionistic style, his paintings reflect a tranquil, happy mood. Clearly the artwork of a man who loves life, he says: I try to make the person looking at my painting feel the color of the sky, the temperature of the air, and the breeze in the apple trees or the wheat stalks. Sammouns subtle touch and rhythmic gesture with his brush, combined with his personal grace and spontaneity, seems to infuse each painting with his personal inspiration.
