Maja Vukoje

In her large format paintings, Maja Vukoje addresses discursive issues such as post colonialism, gender, and popular culture. Due to her own migration experience, she is particularly interested in syncretic cultural phenomena. Her work exploits all the possibilities of painting. She creates various pictorial forms of expression through the use of combs, putty knives, stencils, flowing paint, sprayed elements, and applications of real objects. The result is a somewhat undecipherable contextual meaning of the images.

Maja Vukoje has exhibited work at Künstlerhaus- Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz; Zacheta – National Gallery of Art, Warsaw; and Secession, Vienna, among others.

Esther Tielemans

Esther Tielemans examines the foundations of painting by extrapolating opposites: flat and three dimensional; abstraction and figuration; and reality and illusion. Tielemans’ works are reminiscent of dreams or memories in which the barrier between reality and imagination seems to be fading.

Esther Tielemans has exhibited work at Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; and GEM, Museum of Contemporary ArtThe Hague, all The Netherlands, among others.
