Stefan Gross


Stefan Gross, born in Bendorf Germany, apprenticed as a practitioner of stained glass manufacture. During his apprenticeship he was surrounded by coloured glass and learned to think in color. In 1988 he became a master of the practice and also concluded it by taking up studies of painting at art school HBK Saar, Saarbrücken. After his studies which he completed cum laude, he moved to the Netherlands. Here he lives and works, always seeking to develop new painting techniques. In ca. 2006 he developed a material of his own he now predominantly uses: “oil plastic”. It results from dyeing an industrial plastic with classic oil paints. It is surface and paint in one and enables Stefan Gross to extend the painted surface three-dimensionally. “Oil plastic” is translucent and behaves, at a relatively low temperature, like glass. In his work, Stefan Gross depicts, in a colorful way, the fall of a society based on growth. “The world is a serious place these days. This is a problem I address in my work.” He shows the beauty and potential of industrial production in a look back on the times in which we now live.

Ronald Schmets

Ronald Schmets (Den Haag 1962)

Ronald Schmets is a photographer and visual artist.

He studied at the Royal fine arts college, where he specialized in graphic designing and typography. He then joined the photography school at Breda. 

Ronald Schmets has a genuine interest for photographic decors. Therefore, he left to discover Belgian and Dutch castles. His favorite theme is woman, and he makes her look divine. He is inspired by painters from the Renaissance period, like virgins, lovers and mothers. Ronald Schmets nurtures his women, their world goes beyond men and gives them a heavenly look. He works his compositions, decorations and the light effect with a lot of precision. 

The photographed image is then printed on metallic paper, stuck on dibond, dipped in artificial resin, which creates a transparent veil on the image.

Monika Radhoff-Troll


Monika Radhoff-Troll’s work is primarily specialized and focused on installations, objects and photography. She creates installations, as her artistic vision is influenced by political and ecological concerns. While not desiring to confront the viewer with horrific real life scenario, nevertheless she wants to disturb viewers and heighten their sensibility by building alienated, distorted situations, pseudoscientific assemblages and installations with recycled material.
Monika studied art and textile design at RWTH Aachen / Fakultät VIII from 1978-83. Since 1987 she’s working as an artist in Aachen. Work in public ownership are at Sparkasse Gelsenkirchen, Stadt Lohmar and Buxtehude, Kangaeru-Shirou kan Kawauchi mura, Fukushima, Japan and have been as a loan for four years at The Washington Post, Washington D.C., U.S.A.
