Gilles Cenazandotti
Biography :
Gilles Cenazandotti was born in 1966, in Bastia, Corsica. He lives and works between Paris and Morsiglia, Cap Corse. Cenazandotti develops a reflection on the future of our planet and the evolution of our lifestyles that approaches science fiction, a universe necessary to the survival of man and species. His work attempts to show a complex, enigmatic nature, a technological paroxysm where man tries to imitate nature through artificial recreation.

Natvar Bhavsar
Biography : Natvar Bhavsar’s pigment paintings of lambent, voluminous color have a transcendent, pulsating effect. Bhavsar’s monumental works are created using dry, sifted pigment, released onto the canvas in patterns that parallel the movements of the artist’s body as he works. Layer upon layer of pigments are transformed into compositions that have an effect not unlike staring into a clear night sky. Born in Gujarat, India in 1934, Bhavsar moved to the US in the early 1960’s, where he became an influential member of the New York School of Colorists- he is in fact credited with easternizing the Color Field language through his use of thrown and sifted pigment. Natvar Bhavsar’s paintings are in more than 800 public and private collections, including those of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York; and the Boston Museum of Fine Art, Boston, Massachusetts.

Lynn Chadwick
Biography : Lynn Chadwick was born in London in 1914. He trained as a draughtsman and in 1937 joined an architectural practice, designing exhibition stands for trade fairs. During the war, Chadwick served as a pilot in the Fleet Air Arm. Afterwards he moved to Stroud, Gloucestershire and began constructing mobiles out of wire and balsa wood. He had his first one-man show in 1950 and in 1952 contributed sculptures to the British entry at the XXVI Venice Biennale. This was the exhibition that prompted the art critic Herbert Read to coin the phrase 'the geometry of fear' to describe the work of Chadwick and his fellow British contributors. In the early 1950s, Chadwick began to concentrate on solid, free-standing sculptures. In 1956, Chadwick won the prestigious International Sculpture Prize at the XXVIII Venice Biennale, which secured his international reputation. Chadwick was appointed CBE in 1964, and continued to exhibit widely until his death in 2003. Tate Britain held a major Chadwick exhibition later in that year.

Salvador Dalí
Biography : Salvador Dali was one of the most important Spanish artists of the 20th century. He was a versatile artist, not limiting himself to painting. His artistic repertoire included sculpture and he is also known for his contributions to photography, film, theatre and fashion. Dali was born in Figueras, Catalonia. He studied in Madrid and Barcelona before he moved to Paris in the late 1920s where he met Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro. He experimented with Cubism and Dada and progressed naturally into Surrealism and his eccentric manner, his talent for self publicity made him the world’s best known representative of the movement. Surrealism is based on the belief on the liberation of the human mind, accessing the subconscious for greater artistic creativity. Dali employed extensive symbolism in his work, letting each form and colour represent many possible meanings. One of his most famous works is ‘The Persistence of Memory’, a painting of soft watches and melting clocks, suggesting that symbolically time is relative and not determined. He repeated the image of a limp watch in many paintings and sculptures like this bronze. In 1940 he moved with Gala, his wife and muse to America only to return to Spain in 1955. He lived in Catalonia and after the death of Gala he became a recluse. The largest collection of Dalí's work is at the Dalí Theatre and Museum in Figueras, Catalonia, Spain, the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the Salvador Dalí Gallery in Pacific Palisades, California. His work is also represented in all major galleries in the world.
