Beecroft's collaboration with Henzel Studio was initiated in 2018 during a period when Beecroft returned to the origins of her classical training and immersed herself completely into painting and sculpture that materialized her performances and turned them into objects. One of these paintings of a distorted female figure was selected to be appropriated into a hand knotted rug.

Rossana Orlandi Gallery: Henzel Studio x Non-Violence Project / Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd

Coinciding with Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Henzel Studio is pleased to unveil a new collection of rugs designed by Calle Henzel after the sculpture ”Non-Violence” by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd.

Highlight: Richard Phillips

“My pictures involve a kind of wasted beauty – that’s always been a thread in my work.”

Richard Phillips

Phillips has since the early 90’s furthered the appropriation of found imagery into contemporary art by embodying the critical discourse of Pop Art while creating collisions through subject matter and painting techniques. Today his work belongs in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami and Tate Modern, London, among others.

Archive: JWAN YOSEF, Object / Object (Exhibition)

Jwan Yosef’s works explore both formalism and autobiographical themes, with a conceptual undertaking that queers the principles of modernist aesthetics. Yosef’s tactical use of abstraction serves opportunities to release entendres and challenge viewers to break from passive gazes towards a plurality of perspectives. Whether fixating on the materiality or language of an object, Yosef’s inspirations draw from the potentialities of states of being. The core of this fixation engages a reexamining of functions, routines and expectations of artistic gestures, materials and their interpreted values. Yosef invites the vernacular of everyday materials to a re-thinking of possibilities—a poetic exercise that extracts the many metaphors and biases society projects on familiar effects. The potency of Yosef’s endeavors ultimately refines a poignant and lucid reminder of our own relationships and interpretations of the everyday world and each other.
