Marian Lopez, nació en la histórica villa de Monzón de Campos, en 1.964, por ello desde niña se ha sentido atraída por los colores tostados de los trigos de Castilla. Enamorada de su tierra y de su entorno empezó en el mundo de la pintura en el año 1.982, pintó su primer óleo de estilo realista en 1.983. En los últimos años ha visitado mucho el norte de Palencia, quedando prendada de su fresco estilo con los agrestes grises de las rocas de la montaña palentina, y los verdes primavera de su vegetación, la naturalidad de su paisaje y de sus gentes, el reflejo del cielo en el agua de sus pantanos y una brisa de montaña la enamoraron. Su estilo de pintura es un claro y transparente realismo de estilo capeliano, pero también se siente muy atraída por el impresionismo, habiendo ya pintado algún cuadro en este estilo.


"Painting is an attempt, to approach God." Thengis Rioni Each thing ist followed by its counterpart like a shadow in the aftermath of light - Thengis Rioni's imagery between exotic worlds and philosophy The Georgian painter and sculptor Thengis chose the name of the river Rioni - which runs through his hometown - as a surname. Rioni is more than just a name, it is a parable. Heraklit said that a man cannot step into the same river twice. The moment 's clearness is blurred by the running water just as it is by passing time. Thengis' pictures have an effect on the viewer like the river which gradually passes over and disolves the stone. Calm composure dominates these pictures. lt soothes the senses and makes the spirit pensive.

Sonya quotes “My art can be disturbing to the audience, but this is my interpretation of life and the perspective of the many aspects of my everyday encounters. If my work manages to scare, sadden, excite or inspire people, then I am doing the right thing as an artist – creating and conveying emotion.”

''Before moving to Seattle, U.S.A in 2001, I studied painting, theater design and fine art in Orel, Russia, a small city south of Moscow. Many years I spent working in a factory painting flowers on samovars (Russian tea pots) and painting popular Russian folk art Zhostovo trays. Now my favorite things to paint are plates. They're small, don't take up too much space, and are easy to hang on a wall. They make a sunny, warm patch on your wall. It's strange, but my basic knowledge of how to paint came not from my art college, but from time spent painting Zhostovo trays. My old master always taught me three rules: outrageous colors, form and persective. Thank you, Victor Arsentivich. You did render your ideas in me.'' Natasha Villone.

MICHAL ORLOWSKI.- Watercolor , architect. One of the founders of the Association of Polish watercolourists ´´The use of watercolors is in fact multifarious. There are plain-air watercolor paintings and those produced in studio. We can use watercolors as a sketch medium or to create an epic watercolor paiting. We can also choose between painting technique and drawing technique with use of watercolors. All these terms clearly show the width and depth avalible to the artist in producing watercolor paintings. No other painting technique is as flexible as is the use of watercolors. No other painting technique allows one to choose between exterior painting and studio painting. Also, no other painting techniqe generates so spontanious effects as these avalible with watercolors. I invite you to be my guest to view my watercolor paintings. For them I fought against sun, wind, rain, crowds and street dirt just to transmit succeeding impressions or at least their remains to paper.´´ Michal Orlowski Participant of the international open-air painting in Paris , Prague, Rome , Vienna, Vilnius, Venice, Brittany , Tuscany and Sicily in Istria , and numerous domestic locations .

The sculptures by Christien Dutoit are proof of a great craftsmanship. Mostly the sculptures are strange human figures with an elongated face, which approach each other in a different and surprising way. They seem to have a lot of questions to this world, just like they don’t belong here, as they have become a stranger for this world. Each sculpture has his specific expression, sometimes quiet, sad, introvert and sometimes happy, playing or extravert.The sculptor uses all kind of expressions. Christien Dutoit knows how to approach the ceramic with joy ness and a lot of inspiration. After more than 30 years of modelling ceramics, she now realises bronze sculptures as well. She uses the lost wax technique. Though the material is totally different, she succeeds to create sculptures with the same typical expressions like the ceramics. Les statues de Christien Dutoit témoignent d'une grande maturité. Après plus de 30 ans de formes créatives dans la céramique, elle réalise maintenant des bronzes dans la technique de la "cire perdue". Ainsi vous posséderiz toujours un exemplaire unique. Malgré que la matière première diffère totalement, son oeuvre reste quand même unique et tellement typique. La finesse extrême du style des figurines, leur attitude, tout témoigne d'un monde plein de tendresse, de sérénité et malgré tout pleinement et mouvement. Chaque statue possède son expression personnelle, tantôt silencieuse, courbée, triste, tantôt joyeuse, réjouie, exubérante. Chaque humeur est exprimée. Chasue création apporte sa propre histoire et témoigne d'une évolution perpétuelle de cette artiste à travers les années. Le succès croissant de Christien Dutoit dans le pays ainsi qu'à l'étranger le confirme. Son oeuvre continue de passionner l'amateur d'art.
