Olma Trade Fairs St.Gallen
St. Gallen, ,
ART & STYLE St.Gallen Switzerland is the international fair and trade show for artworks and design-products in the region of four countries between Switzerland - Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein. The Art Event ART & STYLE is a trade and public fair and a Swiss and International Forum for galleries, artists and designers. The fair offers a forum of exchange for art dealers, artists and designers on all levels, the theoretical, the practical and the direct. Many international exhibitors will show their work personally to the public of St.Gallen, so the visitor can get the personal contact directly to many of the producers and artists. Exhibiting this year is Greg Gierlowski, who works in glass, both two and three dimensionally, as well as creates oils which are inspired by the luminescence of glass. Gierlowski has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2001.
The visitor can acquire original works for its own collection or to furnish their living spaces and will discover both quality and variety in the represented styles, with exhibited works of consistently high standard in a surprising number of new artistic forms of expression. A large scale of styles, a high level of exhibited works with many new forms and a fresh spirit will attend the visitors. All products can be acquired at the fair.
The fair aims to promote communication, sales and contact between the exhibitors and the business, media, collectors and the public. Art lovers, Collectors and Gallery owners will find a new platform for trade and contacts.
Greg Gierlowski comments about his work, "Light has always played important role in my creations.
Light coming through translucent artwork interests me and fascinates me the most. Therefore I turned to glass and started to experiment with translucent creations. My admiration for Art Nouveau artists who created beautiful everyday-use objects of art - resulted in the creation of applied arts' objects such as art-lamps.
When one has backlight at ones disposal, there's whole new field
of artistic expression - not only on one front surface of a glass panel but on two, or even four or more, when two or three layers of glass can be used as a kind of sandwich that builds deeper into artwork for 3D effects. That's what I'm currently exploring."
