Christopher Ulrich (USA) is one of the most devoted painters of our time. His surreal iconographic images have adorned museums and galleries worldwide. He is influenced by the richness of ancient mythology, the mystery of alchemy, and the vastness of cosmic reality. Illuminating this dark journey with insight, heart and determination he strives to understand the unraveling revelation that reveals itself in the work.
Christopher began work on his major Demoneater series in 2006. It was the first of three major experiments. Illuminator: The Royal Wedding marked the second, then came The Christ Chronocrator Project: The Reckoning, which was exhibited at La Luz de Jesus Gallery on December 7, 2012. The Christ Chronocrator Project: The Reckoning marked the end of a six-year odyssey known as the Demoneater Saga. Christopher has also participated in numerous group exhibitions.
Christopher worked as the storyboard artist for Metallica’s “Metallica: Through The Never” the first three-dimensional music video movie. He is currently a guest artist at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), in the Guillermo del Toro exhibition “At Home with Monsters.”
Adrian Cox (USA) lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri. Cox received his Undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and his Masters of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in Saint Louis, where he currently teaches.
Adrian Cox's work forges a mythic narrative around a race of beings called the Border Creatures. By casting these creatures as romantic heroes, he shows the Monstrous and the Bizarre to be sympathetic subjects.
Cox has exhibited his work widely, recently including the Mildred Lane Kemper Museum of Art, Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles, and Modern Eden Gallery in San Fransisco. In addition to numerous online reviews and articles, his paintings have been featured in print in Anatomy Rocks: Flesh and Bones in Contemporary Art as well as Hey! Art Magazine.
Amanda Sage - “Holy Matter” - acrylic, casein and oil on canvas - 61 x 122cm (24”x48”)
Amanda Sage (USA) is an artist who uses painting as a tool for spiritual and planetary growth and transformation. Her paintings represent multidimensional aspects of humanness in harmonious balance, inspiring a re-membering of an energetic inter-connectedness that is present and shared with all things.
In 1997, she apprenticed for 2 years in classical painting techniques with Michael Fuchs in Vienna Austria. This led to becoming a painting assistant to Ernst Fuchs, founder of Fantastic Realism, for 10 years while developing her own style and portfolio. She is a co-founder of the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art and is on the board of directors of CoSM (Chapel of Sacred Mirrors) Alex & Allyson Grey’s art sanctuary in New York. Since 2009 she has been based in Los Angeles and influential in networking artists and initiatives while hosting workshops, lecturing and exhibiting world wide.
Regarding the show, Myth and Mutation (and The Quest for the Grail), Amanda explains: “Woven in the complexity of opposites life dances with life, mutating myth and matter. The chalice of everlasting life is not something to be sought, it lives within the caverns of the imagination.”
