Artist

Zai Nomura

Zai Nomura describes his work as a kind of “indecisive point” between death and life. His abstract work drifts between artificial and natural, sculpture and photography, and static and dynamic. According to Nomura, this kind of indecisiveness is based on the ephemerality and vulnerability of the Japanese environment in relation to natural disasters and nuclear experiences.

Zai Nomura has exhibited work at Aichi Triennale; gallery αM, Tokyo; and ARTCOURT Gallery, Osaka, among others.

Studio #305

Artist

Duy Hoàng

Duy Hoàng’s practice focuses on the links between the connections/disconnections one experiences with their surrounding environment, between the mundanes to the phenomena, and from the potential of growth to the inevitability of decay. His work focuses on our relationship to the minute details around us in conjunction with the vast environment we are in. Hoàng entered the United States as a Vietnamese immigrant during his adolescent years and the transitional moment triggered his necessity for intensive observation and awareness.

Duy Hoàng has exhibited work at Brother Joseph McNally Gallery, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore; Wave Hill, New York; and Thomas Erben Gallery, New York, among others.

Wieteke Heldens

Wieteke Heldens works primarily with painting. She uses personal experiences and thoughts and turns them into abstract concepts. Heldens creates all her work according to a self-devised algorithm by giving herself instructions based on a starting position and works towards the desired result. It is her way of getting a grasp on everything happening around us.

Wieteke Heldens has exhibited work at Kunst Museum Den Haag, The Hague; Royal Palace Amsterdam; Borzo Gallery, Amsterdam, among others.
