Joani Tremblay investigates the perception of place through the relationship between landscape and its simulations and reproductions. Instead of painting from traditional observed landscapes, the artist assembles constructed ideas of a place from a variety of sources including advertisements, postcards, Instagram architecture influencers, social media, mass communications, and field researches. Tremblay assembles these images into digital collages to test hundreds of possibilities before applying paint.
Joani Tremblay has exhibited work at Harper’s Gallery, New York; Marie-Laure Fleisch Gallery, Brussels; and The Pit, Los Angeles, among others.

AnaMary Bilbao articulates documentation from photography, drawing, sound, and moving images. Through the combination of these elements and references, she seeks to start fictional narratives that put into question the idea of a single truth. As the artist states, “there is no truth beforehand, only connections, interruptions, and incompleteness – a piece can never end in itself.”
AnaMary Bilbao has exhibited at ARCOmadrid, Madrid; Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology and Leal Rios Foundation, both Lisbon, among others.
