Emily Kame Kngwarreye - Contemporary Indigenous Australian art

«During a whirlwind painting career that lasted just eight years, octogenarian Emily Kame Kngwarreye became Aboriginal Australia’s most successful living artist and carved an enduring presence in the history of Australian art. By the time she passed away on September the 2nd 1996 her fame had achieved mythic status. The Sydney Morning Herald obituary reported the ‘Passing of a Home Grown Monet’. By this time comparisons with a number of great international artists including Pollock, Kandinsky, Monet and Matise, had become commonplace. Emily was an artistic superstar, the highest paid woman in the country, who created one of the most significant artistic legacies of our time.As a painter Emily was a bold, unselfconscious force unleashing colour and movement on to canvases that at their best could be sublime.»

Milena Olesinska - Surrealism - Drawings

My art refers to surrealism, in a broad sense, Broad, because I have excluded typical surrealistic landscape and reached to the simplified image, to the form of the poster. Unraveling leading ideas in my paintings allows me to communicate freely with recipients and to guide them trough symbolic reality of my art.

Emil Schumacher - European Abstract Expressionism

«Emil Schumacher He abandoned painting objects and turned towards the expressive power of painting alone. Colour itself gradually became the decisive element of his works. This biographical artistic process happened during a period, which was determined by the French École de Paris, Tachism and American Action Painting. While abstraction itself was typical of this period, it also became a typical aspect of Emil Schumacher's personal style.During the late 1960s and early 1970s Schumacher experimented with a rigorous type of action painting, which is reflected above all in his „Hammerbilder“ (Hammer Paintings). The injury and damage to the picture support was to him a means of employing destruction itself as a pictorial phenomenon in art.»
