Jason Seife, born in Miami in 1989, has a background in graphic design. Inspired by the complex artwork of weavers, Jason Seife's creations reflect and pay homage to their practice. Merging modernity with classic style, he renders the intricate patterns of old Persian carpets with a mixture of acrylic and ink or oil on canvas. While the paintings utilize familiar motifs in rug design like leaves and geometric shapes, Seife introduces colors not normally associated with the heavy textiles.
Serena Fineschi, born in Siena in 1983, lives and works in Brussels, had a recent exhibition at the Old Master Museum in Brussels with Hans Op de Beeck. Her work aims to create a condition of contextuality, a perpetual present in which the necessary relationship between life and death is simplified in the act of living. In the last period she experimented a wide array of materials and techniques, some for the first time: from fabric to wood, from paper to iron, from drawing to casting and sewing. The common trait is the inextricable connection between her body and the works being generated. At times the motion is turbulent and sudden, while often being repetitive, evoking a sort of automatic writing where the flow of energy from her hand to the objects establishes a singular relationship with time.
