Jantina Peperkamp (Netherlands)
Helena. Acrylic on wood panel, 36x36 cm
Julia. Acrylic on wood panel, 23x38 cm
Gaya. Acrylic on wood panel, 28 x 45 cm
The photorealistic painting of the Dutch artist Jantina Peperkamp emits a soft and exquisite light with an incredible precision, while the viewers can read a certain loneliness and desolation in it. The final result is established by the energy that arises between the artist and her model, as the artist functions as observer and as identifier. Because Jantina Peperkamp considers all her paintings as self-portraits, and it is very important for the painter to recognize herself in her models.
Elizaveta Porodina (Russia/Germany)
Moscow born, Munich based fashion and fine art photographer Elizaveta Porodina has the talent that could not leave us indifferent. Colorful and modern, her work is a manifestation of her cultural roots. Elizaveta Porodina’s most “russian” traits are her tendency to melancholy and sadness, but above all, her obsession with shiny and glittery things (cf. interview with artist by This Is So Contemporary). Great thanks to showslow for this Tumblr Monday to introduce us this talented photographer!

Agathe de Bailliencourt is a painter, born in 1974 in Paris and currently based in Berlin. She works on canvas and paper, as well as in public space and architecture. Although her drawings and paintings are rather abstract, her work is characterized by a more or less aggressive pressure to be as tangible as possible. Agathe de Bailliencourt is interested in the act of painting within a concrete context.
On canvas and paper, she is concerned with the creative process of attaining a certain kind of depth. Here, Agathe de Bailliencourt speaks about her personal experience, her own freedom and its constraints, in a direct and spontaneous way. she attempts to show a total sincerity of the self, which also includes incidence and failure. Regarding the installations, Agathe de Bailliencourt develops her work directly within the perspectives of the urban landscape, within the everyday reality of people. The installations do not follow a precast plan but emerge in the actual occupation of the space when she starts working. Although the starting points are different, artist’s motivation and ways of researching are the same inside or outside the studio. Primarily, she is interested in personal freedom and liberation. Therefore, the integral elements of her work are figures of contradiction and repetition, patterns of continuous, countless, irrepressible approach.
