About

New York City – May 25th, 2017 - Spotteart.com, an online exhibition space for contemporary art & design introduces a new exhibition titled “Conforming to Lines". Spotteart.com has been putting together internet-based art shows since its launch in early 2014. "Conforming to Lines" features work by artists Leonardo Gambini (IT), Cecile van Hanja (NL), Heidi Lanino (US) and Nina Raasch (DE). Collections are available for purchase online.

Leonardo Gambini is an emerging sculptor and wall object artist based in Milan, Italy. Since 2014, his artistic research has focused on the minimalism and the study of the form created through an overlap of Methacrylate plates assembled inside a theca. Leonardo started as a figurative street artist, eventually transitioning his practice to a conceptual investigation of light and shape. His series for Spotte's "Conforming to Lines" show shares an appreciation for form, color, and sculptural space.

Cecile van Hanja is an artist based in Netherlands. She is known for creating modernist paintings reflective of De Stijl's design. Her images of modern architecture are based on a rhythmical pattern of verticals and horizontals, where a multi-colored labyrinth of spaces and look-throughs is created. Thin layers of acrylic and oil paint allow the colors underneath to shine through and the transparent layered structure intensifies the depth of the composition.

Juxtaposing straight lines in the works of Cecile van Hanja and Leonardo Gambini, SpotteArt's current exhibition also presents gestural, soft contour works by artist Heidi Lanino and photographer Nina Raasch.

Heidi Lanino is a figurative abstract painter with a strong base in gestural drawing influenced by the transformative nature of the movement. She creates work that embodies the freedom and sensuality of her subject with an intuitive immediacy. Her artistic practice includes drawing, sculpture, ceramics, and community installations. Her series for Spotte constitutes a collection of large and small-scale acrylic works on canvas and abstract charcoal drawings on paper.

Nina Raasch is a German photographer based between Berlin & London. Getting her inspiration through travels resulted in Nina living in New Zealand for 6 months, after which she found herself wondering through jungles of Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Laos, Indonesia, and Japan. Her work is mostly inspired by personal topics and impressions. Her collection for Spotte reflects on her recent documentary trip to Morocco. It reaches from portraits to landscape photography while focussing on what's behind the surface and trying to create certain emotional moods. 

Since launching the site in March 2014, Spotteart.com has become the leading independent online exhibition platform, offering more than 700 original works of art & design by 80+ contemporary artists in a wide range of mediums, from photography to sculpture. The web-only gallery exhibits contemporary art & design collections online seasonally. Participating artists select or create a compact group of works available exclusively at Spotte. These collections are accompanied with biographies and statements by the artists, as well as updated with weekly blog features dedicated to artists’ backgrounds and aesthetics.
