ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
CARLA FACHE
Born in Santiago, Chile, on May 14,1977.
Since the age of four her drawings reflected her creative mind, allowing her to stand out from the rest of her peers. Since 2001, she has being a Miami-Based artist. Her command of color and texture, together with her continuous exploration of the basic elements and the energy behind them, distinguish her work. Carla has developed her own language in painting, throughout the combination of color, textures, angles, energy and soul. Her work addresses mind, heart and the invisible to the senses through a lens of continuous vibrations exchange. Fache has been pouring her soul prolifically on canvas ever since and invites the viewer to enjoy the experience, feel the energy and see the beauty.
“…My imagination travels to non-existing dimensions that I best describe through a process of layering. When I paint, I feel as if I am hypnotized by colors and textures, all of which will create soft, thin layers that hide or reveal a mark of an unspoken feeling, emotion, or thought…” Carla Fache .

VALENTINA BROSTEAN
Born on October 24th, 1983, in the town Novi Sad, Serbia.
I have always had an eye for the strange beauty in the grotesqueries of life; This appreciation is now very evident in work that I am making. Inspired by the relationship between dreams, natural world and the emptiness of consumer culture, between safe childhood playing to everyday marks of reality I bring and create a new type of creatures in my imaginary world. It is a whole range of characters from the ones in darker corners of the streets of soulless cities to the safe and pure creatures from imagination in my wonderland trying through them to prove that I have never grown up, or at least have never lost touch with my innocent childhood self. My body of work is built of this melancholy interaction between man-made status symbols and frozen moments of the utopian childhood memories. In my work I often flirt with different typefaces, superimposing pieces of print on top of my illustrations, or using them as part of the drawings. I often use draws in black ink on top of these collages, using all kind of hand written scribbles often, which pull the focus of the work back from the adult world to the realms of childhood. This experimenting with more text and new techniques led me to emerging of very personal style. The characters i paint may seem like some creatures from another dimension, real but unreal, sometimes very closely connected with childhood, playful and inventive, sometimes abandoned and tragically sad and full of misery. But i think they are simply us, modern society without it’s masks, without the fake presentations that make us acceptable to whatever group we are a part of. Yet the only place where we are truly revealed the way we really are is one from the inside. We all share feelings of fear and loneliness. We all sometimes feel ugly and insecure. If you examine my work closely, you might come to the realization that my creatures are really kind of self portraits, set in a fantastical landscapes of imaginary world which echoes of her own… a bitter, yet sweetly coated prescription for modern life.

AMOS MILLER
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, USA in 1962 Amos Miller’s paintings are not what you would call “comfortable”. Heavy figures lacking specific facial expressions strike odd postures and are sometimes pushed off the canvas without due caution. FLat, indistinct backgrounds yield an otherworldly quality to the work. And yet, one can’t help but be continuously drawn to Miller’s pieces. The bold colors, the unusual perspective, the eerie familiarity of the scene depicted- all of these keep the eye glued to the canvas and the mind ever questioning.”
“Amos Miller is one of the most interesting young painters of Miami. In his paintings the present USA reality appears clear, investigated and unbelievably rich with contradictions. The artist is not afraid of plunging the knife’s blade into the evils that his world, which is partially ours too by now, is suffering. From the scenes of war to the artificial legs of veterans, from the urban guerillas of rival gangs to the scenes of metropolitan desolation; the climate of a society torn by everyday life, sometimes even dismayed. All elements live together and spread on the big canvas. In his latest works, mainly diptychs and triptychs, there are groups of people who, even if in motion, dominate the scenes as static and monumental figures, waiting for a possible solution of the psychological-existential status. Colors are bright when the scenes full of pathos require it, or they are watercolors when the artist prefers to give prominence to the figurative aspect; his strokes are darker when expressionist memories come back or slightly marked out when the landscape is more lyric.”
