STEFAN GROSS

View works.
Flower Bonanza, 2021
 
SHARE 
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.

The work of about a hundred sculptures, created in the seven years from 2001-2008, consists mainly of human heads shown from the outside. Ultimately the perspective was not enough for Czarnetta, so since 2006 starting with his series SPEKTRUM he has been trying to look inside the heads as if they were Exposition.

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, Sparkasse Westmünsterland, Stadt Lohmar and Buxtehude, Kangaeru-Shirou kan Kawauchi mura, Fukushima, Japan, Geoje Haegeumgang Theme Museum, Yukyung Art Museum Geoje, South Korea and have been as a loan for four years at The Washington Post, Washington D.C., U.S.A.

ERIKA KOEHLER


 
Erika Koehler is artist and diplomat. As a master in international law she started her diplomatic career in the nineties and worked at several embassies of The Netherlands abroad. She also studied at the Art Academies of Moscow and Strasbourg and became an artist parallelly. In her recent work she addresses global issues like climate change and economic conflict: "Her series 'Relics of the fossil economy' is a new interpretation of the 7 Deadly Sins. We are all prone to these shadows. Not in the last place because of our currently dominant belief system; the fossil economy, is tempting at first, but turns out destructive, on closer inspection. Just like the art works. By calling them relics, they are referred to as something of the past, thereby engaging the viewer to co-create the present”
Prior exhibitions: Govinda Gallery in Washington DC, Worldbank, Art Scene Dusseldorf, Stroganov Academy Moscow, Artfair WTC Den Haag.

About us

Gallery profile

CHIEFS & SPIRITS
INTERNATIONAL ARTGallery Chiefs & Spirits was established in 1992. It provides a forum for international Artists from Africa, Europe, Asia and Americas. The primary goal is to bridge and create artistic borderlesness. The gallery is housed in a monumental building in the historical part of The Hague. It has two exhibition rooms. Apart from regular shows organized in the gallery, Chiefs & Spirits participates in national and international art fairs.

 

Galerie Chiefs en Spirits bestaat sinds 1992 en heeft zich in de loop der jaren ontwikkeld van een galerie voor Afrikaanse kunst naar een modern hedendaags forum voor internationale kunstenaars uit alle werelddelen. Deze ontwikkeling toont naast geografische vernieuwing ook nieuwe media en fotografie. Schilder- en beeldhouwkunst zijn een blijvend onderdeel van de collectie. De galerie wil een internationale brug slaan tussen kunstenaars en artistieke grenzeloosheid aanmoedigen.

De galerie is te vinden in een karakteristiek pand in het historische centrum van Den Haag en heeft twee expositieruimtes. Chiefs en Spirits is regelmatig te zien op verschillende kunstbeurzen in binnen- en buitenland
