John Constantin Brancusi Moore

Our friend, the English artist and photographer John Constantin Brancusi Moore (* 1934), died in his home near Paris in November 2016.  they created him as a ‘child of art’. He inherited his father in the passion for photography and art-technology. Never recognised officially by the titan born at Hobita, Gorj County, Moore lived in France with the still living memory of the times passing by. As a very close friend of Alain Bernadain he worked e.g. for and inspired the famous cabaret Crazy Horse.

Wolfgang Siemens, a great neo expressionist artist, we have accompanied for several years, died in February 2016.

Scion of the famous Siemens-family, he studied with Friedrich Vordemberge and Karl Marx at the Kölner Werkschulen, where he had lectured later on himself. He got widely known by exhibitions at the Kölner Josef-Haubrich Kunsthalle, and further solo exhibitions in NYC, Paris, Morocco. In 1986 he had destroyed his paintings to start again in 1990 with new painting.

ArtExpert - Vera Isler-Leiner

The object maker and photographer Vera Isler-Leiner (* 1931) joined us for many years as a friend and inspiring artist. She was an absolutly impressive and extraordinary person. Born in Berlin of Jewish origin and survivor of the mass murder of the Nazis, she was at home in Switzerland, but lived and worked as well in Nice and New York. Characteristic for Isler's multi-facetted oeuvre are self-contained artistic and thematic creative phases. Between 1978 and 1984 she dealt extensively with objects and Reliefs on the subject of genetics and genetic research. Later she moved to photography. At the center of Vera Isler's photographic work has been portrait photography since the 1990s, which brought her international recognition. Inspired by Heinz-Günter Mebusch, she developed her own style, creating large-scale portraits of famous artists consistently in their own environment. At the age, she rejuvenated anothermvery fresh group of works with video and stills: Bits + Pieces, where she set people of the infamous 42nd Street in New York a monument before it was cleaned on the orders of the former mayor, Rudolph Giuliani.
