Seline Burn, born in 1995, is an artist living in Basel.
Her large-format paintings are fascinating not only because of the brushwork reminiscent of coloured pencil, but also because of the narrative representation of the motifs. Her Symbolist-influenced painting conjures suggestive images in which intimacy and radical strangeness are delicately balanced in a practice she sees as an ongoing personal diary. Seline Burn's paintings were presented in her first solo exhibition at Eve Leibe Gallery London 2022 in May. Burn's paintings have also been selected for a group exhibition to be held in London in autumn 2022 as part of a collaboration between Delphian Gallery and Unit 1 Gallery Workshop.

Patric Sandri is concerned with abstract painting. The elements of the painting play a central role: the paint, the canvas, the stretcher. He makes these given components the subject of his work. He experiments and tests new possibilities to see how far he can explore the medium of painting with these limited tools. Besides geometry, perception and seeing play an essential role in his work. Errors and contradictions in perceptions are central moments that influence his pictorial ideas and compositions.
Selected artists, in which we see great potential, are included in the category of Supported artists. In turn, we see them as our managed artists for the future. We actively seek gallery presentations, exhibition opportunities and act as intermediaries in the sale of works.

Tiziano Autera deals intensively with his environment. In this confrontation, he captures relevant, formative perspectives that he fundamentally and skillfully reshapes. New characters that he perceives in society flow into his creative process and create unexpected figurations through changes in gestures and facial expressions. The artist sensually proportions human physiology in such a way that his images of people always reflect their unique appearance. Through his cubist approaches, female and male physical features diffuse into a harmonious existence and lovely commonality.
His interpretations of human individuality are characterized by colors and patterns that show our different realities.

Martina Morgan's artistic practice interweaves cybernetics and corporeality in situational installations and site-specific performances. The central questions she explores in this way deal with individual freedom in increasingly technological lifeworlds as well as ideas of power, desire, and care within a neoliberal society determined by work and performance. She repeatedly places a specific focus on the role of FLINTA and constructions of gender. Her works can be understood on the one hand
as positionings within the existing system and on the other hand as assertions against that very system: Martina actively occupies spaces and negotiates the effects of social constraints on our bodies through strategies of display and visualization. In this way, she creates queer drafts of a society whose central characteristics are hybridity and fluidity and thus assert themselves against the standardization efforts of our present.

In the works of Aramis Navarro, the thematic focus is on the relationship between language and image. Questioning this system with the concept of counterpoint, the artist is interested in the moments when the usual harmony is disturbed. From these events the artist draws curiosity and ideas. Driven by an urge to explore, the artist works in multimedia with texts, installations and paintings that are marked by poetry, humor and narrative moments. The artist also deals with the representability of temporality, and its connection to language in his series of works "timestudies", in which he paints canvases, cuts together, creating a network of his works and of references.
Aramis Navarro graduated with a Master's in Fine Arts from Zurich University of the Arts in 2021, and his first extensive institutional solo exhibition is on view at Alte Fabrik.

Benjamin Siegenthaler born 1979 in Horn, Austria, grew up in Switzerland surrounded by vast landscapes. As a young man, Benjamin moved to Zurich, where the view of the horizon is easily lost in the avalanche of distracting details of the city. His art also moves between two poles: between expansive installations and delicate paintings, between raw sculptures and witty collages. Currently, the artist continues his work in Hemsedal, Norway. Since training as a stone sculptor, he has always carried his sketchbook with him. This constant companion is filled with small, abstract drawings that capture how he sees the world. So then, his working process begins with flipping through the sketchbook to pull out nuggets of inspiration and let them become the themes of his creative vision.
