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

4. SOPHIA COLLIER:
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."

Records, Coachella Music Festival, Absolut Vodka, Converse and TOMS
Shoes to name a few, shows clearly you CANTSTOPGOODBOY.
