Duarte-Artists (Germany / South Africa)
Everett Paul Duarte is a contemporary South African artist whose abstract paintings reflect colour, life and creative power in an organic formal language. Exploding, flowing, constantly new and reappearing forms appear in a constant state of transition. The visual language he creates on the canvas is both powerful and fascinating - everything is in motion, pulsating, captured for a moment.
Frances Schandera-Duarte paints, glues, layers with oil pencils and paint, ink, gauze, rubble and various papers her mostly meditative pictures. White offers her the largest imaginary pictorial space, from which visionary elements flash up that permit a variety of interpretations. With lively surfaces and idiosyncratic structures, she creates mysterious images with and without representational references. Her works cause the viewer to move in order to obtain as much information as possible about the picture's surface and material.

Robert Korizek (Zollikerberg, Switzerland)
Robert Korizek realizes since decades photographic projects in different regions of the world. He creates works with statement, power and style. On the occasion of the fair, Robert Korizek presents a selection of large-format photographs of Arctic ice landscapes in Greenland. The meticulously composed and lavishly executed photographs were preferably taken under dramatic light conditions during the midnight sun, when darkness falls, or in fog and rain. Common to all these situations is the perceptible, majestic, often mystical aura of inhospitable remoteness and the apparent transience of the seemingly eternal ice. These subtle but essential impressions and moods complete the photographic image with emotions, and it is only thanks to this captivating combination that works of meaning, power and aesthetics are created. For the realization of this project, Korizek was mainly on small ships or manoeuvrable boats - at any time of the day or night, in any weather.

Paméla Maria (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
Paméla Maria studied classical art in Belgium and industrial design in the Netherlands. The "beauty of everyday life" and the theme "Nothing is what it seems to be" are guiding themes in her work. Nature is an important source of inspiration here: zooming in on patterns, structures and light in the (urban) landscape. In her works these impressions merge into each other and result in new compositions of endless colours. The reliefs are made of yarn and paper or cardboard, photographs depicting the calm landscape of Holland. The subtle use of colours and detailed texture is a refined play with light and determines the character of the artworks. Colour plays an important role in this process; the seemingly flat surface is transformed into a multidimensional relief. Several series are inspired by the way in which water and air influence each other, creating an endless array of colours.

Jean-François Réveillard aka JfR (Engelberg, Switzerland)
JF Réveillard likes to define himself as a cross-media image maker. His work always revolves around a central theme with strong statements. He is influenced by philosophy and modern life. His creations use the latest techniques, but always remain grounded. JF Réveillard applied the new technologies in his works early in the 1980s and launched one of the first European WebTV's and a digital TV studio in 1997.
At the fair, the artist presents his latest multimedia installation RELIQUIAE 2019, which deals with a dystopia in which man downloads his consciousness in dream-like forms. The already lost state of nature disappears completely and exists only through relics (remnants) that are maintained by machines. JfR poses the question of the traces that our existence and civilizations will leave behind. He refers to the challenge and role of art to guarantee permanence and sustainability. Does art have any meaning as a message or merely as an artefact in a future in which man is gradually losing his place on the planet?
