Venice-based artist Annaluigia Boeretto (aka Annalù) works primarily with resin and the major focus of her works is on the theme of water, primeval central element of life. In the works of the artist there is a sense of metamorphosis, in passing, of evolution as a sort of journey between different states, between different realities, a spirit of inquiry that shares some typical aspects of the science of alchemy.

Japanese artist Chie Hitotsuyama began as an illustrator, however, childhood memories of her family’s historic paper factory led her to find joy in utilizing unwanted paper as her medium. Her work includes realistic animals and marine life sculptures created using recycled newspaper. Hitotsuyama uses old discarded newspapers to make paper strings out of them, just as the old wooden thawing machines did in her grandfather’s factory, but instead, she uses her hands.
Saulterre’s work includes clay, bronze, cement, ceramic and other materials sculptures.

Escape into reality is a combination of a painting, a relief and a sculpture, it outlines a transition between real and virtual world, between 2d and 3d form, between sensed and tangible … Is it possible for a form to be able to think something or convey a message…and if there is no direct message, is it possible for it to contemplate itself? Reflection on fine art which finds in a situation when it tries shocking in order to be spotted or makes an effort to walk out to reach a looker.
Jeremy Lepisto’s work is inspired by the separate histories, intersecting connections and constructed elements of his daily surroundings. He employs the visual vocabulary of these places to explore the complex in the common and to comment on the condition of the spaces that we all share. His detailed landscapes are constructed into three-dimensional forms to achieve great visual depth and a distinct perspective.
The works in the Watertower series contain and preserve the idea of the environments from where they could be found.
