SEBASTIEN ROCHE

Sébastien Roche is a French artist born in Lille.
His portraits have featured faceless people consistently since 2010. His primary goal is to trigger the onlooker's imagination.
He was inspired by the 1920s and, particularly, on the “mug shots” of an Australian Police Station. His focus is mainly on body language and the subject's overall posture. His “Sans Visages” (faceless) collection is now well-known all over Europe.

He works in various French and European galleries and he participates with success in many important contemporary art fairs.

Very recently Roche approached a new adventure focusing his creativity on abstract art like a new field of experimentation and freedom.

VALERIA PATRIZI

 

Valeria Patrizi was born in 1979 in Rome where she now lives and works. In 2004 she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome (with Nunzio Solendo), after having attended the “Facultad de Bellas Artes de Granada” (Spain) for 6 months. Graduated in pictorial restoration at the San Giacomo School of Restoration of the Municipality of Rome. She started her artistic career by studying painting techniques and form through drawing and the study of anatomy. After a long period of study of academic painting she detaches himself from it, addressing herself towards a new, more essential and original pictorial dimension; in his large canvases, often exhibited without frames as if they were large tapestries, she uses coffee, tea and bitumen, seeking the balance of form through lines and stains. In constant search of a new and symbolic idea of the human figure, she dwells on the image of the woman; the only one in which she can get lost and find herself.

She participated to important collective and personal exhibitions both in private galleries and institutional spaces.
