A.R. Penk | Three of Many 


  1. Oil painting (150×140 cm) by Tizta Berhanu (1991), graduated in fine arts from Addis Ababa University, where she studied figurative painting.

Her paintings are full of primary colors applied with thick brushstrokes. Through depicting subjects that express love, hate, sorrow, and loneliness, viewers are invited to experience mutual feelings.

Penck is known as a Neo-expressionist artist. Looking for developing a visual, semiotic language that is open to decoding, he creates his paintings and sculptures in simple forms and in a way that they appear as primitive symbols and patterns, thus causing the viewer to respond with imagination.  

  3. Wooden artwork by Alexandra Champalimaud titled "Herron Settee" which is inspired by glaciers in North America.
