Fondation Artists-Way

Artists Way is concerned with the possibility of crossing boundaries while maintaining identity. In the artworks presented, hope is linked in abstract to figurative and sculptural works that represent the potential possibilities of all.

The painter Fabien Gaeng, Lausanne, is influenced by the great masters of art history, especially the avant-gardists of the beginning of the 20th century, but also the late 19th century influences his work. Having been inspired by them, Fabien detached himself from them and created a very personal and distinctive style. His works can already be found in private collections in France, England, Germany, Spain, the United States and Switzerland.

Samuel Frydman a.k.a. Asnaby was born in France in 1956. Asnaby is a Paris-born painter whose themes focus on concealment, stigmatization and covering, questioning historical information that is considered true. He studied with his teacher Herzl Emanuel with various artists from the Italian and Spanish Nouvelle Vague. Asnaby moved to Tel Aviv in 2012. His new work is more personal, as seen in the new series "Devouring and giving birth" (Bolea-Laledet), in which he analyses himself. The man in the painting is full of contradictory emotions, sensations and behaviors and confronts his former identity as an exile while assuming a new identity as an Israeli. He stores these emotions and expands to a point where he can no longer recognize himself but needs self-knowledge to develop the new self. Over the last 20 years, Asnaby's work has attracted a wide interest in international exhibitions and private collections.
