FRESH! was initiated to provide a platform for emerging artists to showcase their work, as well as a venue for young collectors to explore pieces to add to their imminent collection. This year, FRESH! is returning with a group larger and more varied than the last, ready to reveal their take on the “contemporary portrait.”
In this call, artists demonstrate their artistic approach and interpretation through the presentation of self-portraits, portraits of a person or groups, animals, or objects. An intimate view of the depicted subject presents an exploration of the character, sentiment, or identity of an individual or place. Said visual clues are presented through the employment of a particular technique or the implementation of a distinct concept. The show is a diverse exhibition combining photography, classical painting, prints and collages, produced by artists from all over the world.
