Gilbert Pauli

Born in 1944 in the city of Fribourg, Gilbert Pauli now lives in Geneva where he devotes himself to painting and sculpture, a passion he has developed since childhood. His favorite theme is the dialogue between human being and his creator. 

Gilbert Pauli’s messages are universal, without any racial, religious or even cultural reference, with the only aim of loving man. 

Since 1986, he has been working hard and self-taught to discover the different technique soft painting and sculpture: gouache first, followed by dry pastel. These brought him to watercolor and oil, passing through charcoal and acrylic. 

Gilbert Pauli, in his new paintings, which he installs in space like steles, goes even more to the essentials, goes even more to the heart of painting as he has done it for so many years. 

Its lavaflows, its insertions of clear colors with in its lands, its ochres, its greys; its materials where rough and velvety mix.

Michel Pourchet


Born in 1960 in the heart of the forges of the Lorraine mining and steel basin, his work crosses several media, from stone to bone, from lead to bronze, from wood to iron. In 2012, after a welding intern ship linked to his professional activity, iron, present everywhere, in the form of rebus, offers him unlimited accessibility and an unprecedented plasticity. A metallic world, a constantly expanding field of investigation. 

His artistic approach: 
As a child, sometimes out of the way, he would sit and glean whatever the radius of his arm allowed him. He aligned by order of size and matter a multitude of things, twigs, leaves, stones. ..he then erected an ephemeral temple where no thought distracted him. he doesn’t know the reason why he reorganizes things, he lets himself be carried away by his desire to create and yet continues to collect, amass, etc.

Stefano

” Not knowing it myself, it would take too long to explain who I am. However, the tumults of life and the vagaries off ate, not having spared me, like everything in everyone, I am now a painter. Artist of life above all because the first Art remains the Art of living and loving… As Art belongs to those who appreciate it, it is difficult to establish a value. “

Stefano.

Born in 1959, Stefano is a well-known and appreciated Geneva artist. His career was long and tumultuous. Sometimes he paints, sometimes he exposes. His style is a mixture of figurative and abstract art. There are mixed feelings, suggestions, symbols, perhaps shocking for some but everything is paint in a perfect harmony. He has acquired over time a great experience in painting and knows how to stop perfectly on time.

Claude Sabet

Born in 1938, Claude Sabet is a Doctor of Chemistry, but above all a passionate art lover. It is therefore natural that he became a art dealer, and that he would have been for many years. Overtime, he collected the abstract art of the 50s, the raw, naive and marginal art. At the age of 80, Claude Sabet broke down all his barriers and began to paint. Self-taught, here leases all the strength within him and leaves room for his artistic approach that has been lost for too long. Mixed and strong feelings, perhaps retained for too long, explode on the canvas. Claude Sabet challenges us through his work.

 

Laura Casini

Laura Casini started painting at the end of 2016 and was contacted in avery short time by various galleries. She exhibited in Florence, Rome, Barcelona (winning two awards in two consecutive years) Monaco, on giant screens, in a gallery at NYC and at Basel airport during the ArtBasel 2017 exhibition. Two paintings were recently presented in Paris at the FMR, an event organized by Wendy Lauwers. 

Color. ..movement. ..light, are the elements through which Laura expresses the force of life on her canvases by creating emotions and strong connections between the viewer of the work and his subconscious mind, his soul. The observer is quickly swept in to a world of passion. Indeed, the dance between shadow and light is very present in the works of Laura. The texture also because the touch is one of the characteristics of Laura’s painting. This one almost becomes sculpture in some of her creations. 

Laura’s personal development and strong spiritual side is in separable from her artistic side. Guided by a superior creative force, she describes an energy, she translates a confidence or emotion in to painting. Her objective is to transmit a personal emotion to future buyers and to spread through out the world the life force expressed in his paintings.

Richard Vigniel


Very early on, Richard Vigniel was passionate about digital images and quickly put his professional computers kills at the service of artistic creation. 

The adventure really began at the turn of the 2000s. The existing drawing software then did not satisfy him. But a small music program generating images in rhythm will show him the way. He decided to create his own computer toolbox to create images on demand. Since then, it has evolved regularly according to new technologies and the sensitivity of the artist. 

This application has become his brush. Each work is the result of an original assembly of algorithms, transformations and settings applied to an initial image or created from scratch. 

Depending on the filters used, the final result can vary greatly, from an image with psychedelic accents to highly structured shapes. Hues, often very saturated, jostle or intertwine. The application generates color flows that move and dilute in a movement punctuated by the tempo of a music. His next challenge is to compare the transformations carried out by different musics from the same base. Thanks to the ever-increasing possibilities offered by processors whose power is constantly increasing, combined with daring programming methods, its “computer palette is constantly expanding”.

Gregoire Murith

Grégoire Murith was born in Switzerland in 1973, he is creative and passionate. His typographic, graphic and artistic work is based on play and aims to be playful, refined and minimalist. More precisely: assembly game, game with space, movement, basic operations, semantic game or game with signs. 

The atmospheres, the notions of repetition and systematics of minimalism, electronic music, geometric painting as well as the fathers of Swiss graphic design for their relationship to space, their language games fascinate and fascinate him. In his creations, he builds, divides and modulates the 2D space, the signs, to shape a universe composed essentially of colored basics and apparent simplicity, joyful, symbolic and alive. 

In addition to his artistic work, participation in graphic design competitions and freelance work, the rest of his time is devoted to teaching typography, graphic design and DTP.
