Robert Juniper - Australian Landscapes

Robert Litchfield Juniper, AM (7 January 1929 – 20 December 2012) was an Australian artist, art teacher, illustrator, painter, printmaker and sculptor.
He is best known and highly respected for his poetic and visionary approach to landscape, particularly the outback and desert… His landscapes are a psychological and pictorial interpretation of space, blending his feelings about the landscape with what is visible to the eye. Although identifiable objects appear within his landscapes, the images are often metaphorical and the landscape represented stretches far further than the eye can see.

John Davis - Australian Contemporary Sculpture

John Davis (16 September 1936 – 17 October 1999) was an Australian sculptor and pioneer of Environmental art. An Australian exponent of Arte povera, he famously developed a new mode of Site-specific art at the Mildura Sculpture Triennial in the early 1970s. His most influential work, which was entitled Tree Piece, was made by encasing the trunks of several growing trees on the banks of the Murray River with, alternately, papier mache, mud, latex, coiled string, plastic cling wrap, and twigs bound together. The impermanent work was then allowed to weather and rot away. It was a breakthrough which lead many sculptors to reconsider the fate of outdoor works, and whether the fabrication of art might in some way adversely impact on the environment.Taking his cues from Aboriginal artifacts, Davis later became chiefly known for tender assembled works made of natural materials, including leaves and twigs, intended to highlight the fragile beauty of nature

In the 50’s of the 20th century she painted and created lithographical compositions according to the spirit of informel abstraction. Since the beginning of the 60s she started creating her most characteristic collages, which are sometimes compared to the similar artistic streams like matter or assemblages. The artist was known by adding authentic objects to her works (often being accused of “spoiling” old prints). When martial law was declared in Poland in the 80’s, she created some religious theme compositions

Gustav Metzger - Auto-Destructive Art

Gustav Metzger (10 April 1926, Nuremberg – 1 March 2017, London) was an artist and political activist who developed the concept of Auto-Destructive Art and the Art Strike. Together with John Sharkey, he initiated the Destruction in Art Symposium in 1966.
Metzger was recognised for his protests in the political and artistic realms.His experience of twentieth century society’s destructive capabilities led Metzger to a concentrated ‘formulation of what destruction is and what it might be in relation to art.’ He was known as a leading exponent of the Auto-Destructive Art and the Art Strike movements. He was also active in the Committee of 100 — a ‘named’ memberIn 1959, Metzger published the first auto-destructive manifesto Auto-Destructive Art. This was given as a lecture to the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) in 1964, which was taken over by students as an artistic 'Happening’. The Architectural Association published, in 2015, a facsimile edition of Metzger’s lecture transcript. In 1962 he participated in the Festival of Misfits organised by members of the Fluxus group, at Gallery One, London.Guitarist Pete Townshend from The Who studied with Metzger, and during the 1960s, Metzger’s work was projected on screens at The Who concerts.In 2005, he selected EASTinternational which he proclaimed to be “The art exhibition without the art.“Throughout the 60 years that Metzger produced politically engaged works, he incorporated materials ranging from trash to old newspapers, liquid crystals to industrial materials, and even acid.”

Isaac Witkin - New Generation of sculptors

«Isaac Witkin (American, 1936–2006), Succoth, 1975. Steel. Gift of Jacques and Donatella Lennon, 91.2.1 | Isaac Witkin rejected the idea that the human figure is necessary to sculpture, and instead explored abstraction in his work. The sculpture consists of welded steel plates painted bright orange. Each plate has an irregular geometric shape, some straight and rigid and others elegantly curved. The sheets slice into one another, delicately balancing on precise contact points. Their sharp edges pierce the space around them, as if Witkin is not only carving the sculpture but also carving air. The overlapped and stacked forms allow for a constantly changing play of light and shadow, assuming different configurations based on the viewing angle. Witkin had a consistent interest in how the scale of a sculpture can be determined by its relationship to the human body. He once stated that “I aim to establish a freedom to move in multiaxial space in a way that draws the spectator in and around the sculpture to experience different aspects of an evolving dynamic.»

Sigmar Polke - Pop Art

Multi-media artist, Sigmar Polke, had the capacity to be at once irreverent, playful, and acerbic. From painting to photography and film to installations and prints, Polke's work, which often incorporated non-traditional materials and techniques, was above all a critique of art itself. Sometimes veiled and sometimes confrontational, the messages conveyed in his work raise serious questions about aesthetic, political, and social conventions.

Lee Mullican - Abstract Art

«Lee Mullican was born in Chickasha, Oklahoma in 1919 and died in Los Angeles in 1998.
The late California artist Lee Mullican’s  paintings are a uniquely West Coast exploration into abstraction; one that is grounded in content, full of mysticism and connections to the transcendent. Mullican describes, “We were involved with a kind of meditation, and for me this had a great deal to do with the study of nature, and the study of pattern…We were dealing with art as a way of meditation.”
