Jannis Kounellis

On 16th February 2017 our friend, the Greek artist Jannis Kounellis, one of the leading figures of the Arte Povera movement, died in Rome’s Villa Mafalda hospital.

Born in Piraeus, Greece in 1936, the artist moved to Rome at the age of 20 to study at the Academy of Fine Arts and considered the Eternal City his adopted home, where he continued to live and work. But he still had his roots in Greece and was connected very deep with his homeland. We honor him and keep him in good memory. Farewell!

Vera Isler-Leiner

In 2015, the object maker and photographer Vera Isler-Leiner (* 1931) joined us for many years as a friend an inspiring artist. She was an absolutly impressive and extraordinary person. Of Jewish origin and survivor of the mass murder of the Nazis, she was at home in Switzerland, but lived and worked as well in Nice and New York. Characteristic for Isler’s multi-facetted oeuvre are self-contained artistic and thematic creative phases. Between 1978 and 1984 she dealt extensively with objects and Reliefs on the subject of genetics and genetic research. Later she moved to photography. At the center of Vera Isler’s photographic work has been portrait photography since the 1990s, which brought her international recognition. Inspired by Heinz-Günter Mebusch, she developed her own style, creating large-scale portraits of famous artists consistently in their own environment. At the age, she rejuvenated anothermvery fresh group of works with video and stills: Bits + Pieces, where she set people of the infamous 42nd Street in New York a monument before it was cleaned on the orders of the former mayor, Rudolph Giuliani.
