If the artistic expression of Jean-Philippe BRAAM (1957) passes today by the brush, for many years it was his privileged tool in the exercise of his profession of restorer of paintings.

When we are born we are already subject to a past. This may or may not impact our future. In my case, I preferred to use my present to bring out the past, hoping to shape a future. It’s all in the “collective memory”

The aged white pages give a texture, close to nature, like a bale of hay.
Brussels photographer Vincent Peal made a name for himself with the electro rock band Emma Peal. To make portraits is first of all to get closer to others and to transmit moments of life. In the street, I saw dozens of faces, each telling incredible, tough, beautiful, funny and sometimes complicated stories; but, in these faces there is a whole universe to discover and it is through the photo that I try to describe the human in all its sensitivity, its poetry, its fragility, its dramas, its absurdities, its emotions…www.vincentpeal.com
My artistic work consists of creating geometric shapes using mathematical theorems (Cardiode + Polytope) and tangles of threads. The base is made of wood and the nails are arranged evenly around its perimeter. On the wires, I applied a special glue to make them last longer over time. These mathematical theorems can also be found in the path traveled by planets in the universe or in plants, an example being the shape of a sunflower. The geometric design that forms can also be called a mandala. This figure is represented in different cultures or religions but it is called differently. These drawings are symbols that represent the beauty of the universe and the microcosm of man

After 25 years of production and audio-visual production, Dominique Christoffel began, from 2007, a career as a scriptwriter at the same time as a painter, with a first triptych with aboriginal influences which have since given way to a more figurative painting, which strips away little by little, to concentrate on the representation of light, a transversal theme of his work.
By means of a figurative work on paper, combining pencil drawing, gouache and embroidery thread…, I attempt a reflection on the intimate and social body of the individual. Here, I propose groupings of female figures captured in the most everyday postures. To what extent are they caught in the network of threads that connect them?
And what about us who look at them?
