    Pow Pow Pow! Watch out, this girl does not mess around. This feisty goddess of hunting, wilderness and a protector of fellow women will really stand her ground in a fight. The subtle pink blush in her cheeks suggests a softer feminine side, but her fur vest hints at her last prey. Be drawn in by her piercing gaze, but not too far, we think we both know who would come out on top if things turned sour, it could be your skin she wears as a vest next.

    This series of twelve poppy, colourful, digital collages sees gods and goddesses reborn through a combination of previously produced photographs.

    Sally Fuerst’s paintings skillfully combine the contemporary with the classical. Inspired by popular culture and appropriating the style of fashion photography, Fuerst meticulously paints images of beautiful and confident women in playful fancy-dress costumes, such as Batman and Robin, or women posing with props, such as rainbows, Mickey Mouse balloons, a space hopper and a giant, inflatable zebra. Fuerst’s approach is cheeky and humorous, but the figures are rendered with such skill and diligence that, from afar, they seem photo-realist.

    In his Bookscapes series, artist Max-Steven Grossman creates libraries that exist only in his photographs. The purpose of these works is to register bookshelves from various backgrounds, reorganize them through digital procedures, and create a vast archive of ideas, concepts and titles that any connoisseur of a specific field of study, should have.

    The relationship that each viewer develops with these libraries is completely personal and occurs exclusively in the realm of his imagination. Like Walter Benjamin, who once narrated his personal friendship with each of his books while unpacking them from a trunk, Grossman creates a work where each individual will develop a personal dialogue with the image. This dialogue will originate from their past readings, their desire to read the unread, the admiration for the sea of knowledge contained therein, or the fear of facing the great unknown. However, what is truly important is that the viewer-image relationship is one of contemplation and awe before the impossibility of accessing all the real yet unattainable knowledge presented in these photographs.
