HILTON ASMUS CONTEMPORARY IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE 
THE ARTISTS TO BE EXHIBITED IN 2014 
  

1.  PETER SOREL:  
We are excited and honored to represent photographer PETER SOREL,  who worked on films such as LIFE OF PI, FRIDA, EASY RIDER and ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST.  His works have been published in LIFE, TIME, NEWSWEEK along with many major magazines and newspapers abroad.  Peter's photographs have been widely exhibited in Europe.  Peter is currently a resident of Chicago and has recorded a series of Lake Michigan at various times of day that are frequently mistaken for original paintings. The Union league Club of Chicago will host an exhibit of his works in March along with an exhibit of his works at Hilton Asmus Contemporary. 

  
2.  FELIX ROULIN: 
Félix Roulin was born in 1931 in Dinant, Belgium.  He is best know for his monumental sculptures in public spaces and sculpture gardens throughout Europe.  Roulin resides and works in a 17th century farmhouse where he casts his sculptures in a foundry he built on the farm.  His unique method of incorporating classical human figures into modern columnar shapes as if they are a forest of bodies has enraptured audiences throughout the world with placements in China, Greece, UK, Korea, Australia and the US. As most of his works are one-of-a-kind unique works in bronze, cor-ten steel, and aluminum, they they have graced many corporate spaces, private gardens, museums and residences, both indoors and outdoors.

Roulin was a professor at the School of  Métiers d'Arts in Maredsous,  professor of  Metal Art and then professor of Sculpture in the High Institute of Architecture and Visual Art of "La Cambre" in Brussels from 1962 to 1996.  In 1961 he was awarded the triennial Prize "Young Belgian Sculpture" and the "Rodin Museum Prize" at the Paris Biennial.  After 1961, he exhibited at the Biennial of Paris, Biennial of Sao Paulo, Biennial of Middelheim, in Japan and throughout Europe.  His works have been exhibited at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Musee Saint-Georges in Liège and he was recently on a touring exhibition in seven museums (Changshu, Ningbo, Fujian, Suzhou, Xian, ZhaoYuan and Shanghai) in China.  Felix will be accepting a very limited number of internships at his farm later this year to teach his bonze casting process on his idyllic 17th century farm in Belgium.

3.  GAIL MANCUSO:
Beginning her career as a nationally known fashion and commercial model, Gail Mancuso uses skills honed from working on both sides of the lens to create abstract layered photographs that blend multiple images into imaginative and innovative compositions, printed on metal and acrylic surfaces. Focusing on architecture and design, nature and human forms, Gail's images present a stunning and optimistic view of the beauty of the simple and often unnoticed.

4.  SOPHIA COLLIER:
Working in her studio in Sausalito, Collier carves water surfaces from acrylic blocks using a process combining imagination, software and machine tools to capture wind crossing water and the light that results.  She developed software to model vast, turbulent, nonlinear date sets, learned precision milling, studied 3D modeling, developed a color palette in acrylic blocks where she uses a large "CNC" router to carve acrylic blocks from computer code she has written.  The results are mesmerizing sculptures of water that appear to move with each glance.  "I was walking across a bridge and looked down at the water and thought I wish I could pick up a piece of the surface and keep it forever. This idea became a compelling force."

5.  CANTSTOPGOODBOY:
A 23 year old self-taught Malibu based Contemporary Artist/Muralist.  With a meticulous attention to detail, utilizing mixed media (vintage comics) and various other techniques, his work has not gone unnoticed. Collaborations with companies such as Sony, Warner Bros., Atlantic Records, Coachella Music Festival, Absolut Vodka, Converse and TOMS Shoes to name a few, shows clearly you CANTSTOPGOODBOY.
