SOPHISTIKÓS

We are happy to invite you to our next exciting exhibition SOPHISTIKÓS with world-renowned contemporary artists living in Gozo: Fox DanielsSJ Fuerst and Tomas Hed. The opening night will be on Saturday, October 19 at 7:30pm. The exhibition will be on till November 17.

Is simplicity the ultimate sophistication? Fox Daniels, SJ Fuerst, and Tomas Hed will have a say in our upcoming exhibition: SOPHISTIKÓS. Are artificiality, elegance and pretended naturality our desperate attempt to capture eternal youth? With sophistication, it is not clear whether we try to hide what we consider ugly and primitive through a veil of vanity and illusion, or just want to empower our natural skills.

Attractive, magnetic and powerful women will inhabit our walls with a touch of irony, mystery and, of course, sophistication. We all know that nature loves to hide.

The Artists

Fox Daniels is a half Belgian, half Berber artist, who lives and works in Gozo. She is part of the new generation of the CoBrA Movement and Outsider Artists. Fox works with total freedom without the limitations of the established rules within the Industry of Art and Academies.
Fox Daniels has participated in several group exhibitions and shows around Asia and Europe. In 2012, she had her first solo exhibition in Hong Kong which made quite a stir in the Hong Kong press and throughout China. Fox Daniel’s works can be found in corporate boardrooms and private residencies of celebrities and distinguished individuals around the world.

SJ Fuerst, who was born in Connecticut in 1987, lives and works in Gozo. Fuerst was named by British GQ as one of the 10 best artists working today. Fuerst’s work is beautiful and funny. Drawing from fashion, Pop art, and contemporary culture, Fuerst creates a surreal world where the animals are inflatable and the women feel so real you expect them to wink at you.
The artist studied painting at the Pratt Institute of Art and Design in New York, at the Florence Academy of Art and the London Atelier of Representational Art, graduating in 2010. Fuerst’s can be found in private collections all over the world.

Tomas Hed, originally from Sweden, lives in Gozo, where he lets his imagination and creativity go wild. Here he has found his place to exploit his talents: composing music, writing and, of course, painting. He worked for many years as an Art Director in Stockholm, having his studio in Gamla Stan, the old part of the city. As a seeking youth Tomas developed in an artistic atmosphere, living in a community with other artists.

It’s impossible to be indifferent to his creations. The spirit of his art is inspired by an indomitable character, always challenging values, or “bubbles” as he calls them, of our daily life.
