Other Represented Artists

  • Alex and Felix  (+)

    Biography : For more than 14 years, alexandfelix - alias the two artists Alex Gertschen and Felix Meier – have built their dream worlds together, bringing them to life in lusciously composed photograhic productions. One of their trademarks is the construction of dramatic backdrops. From initial ideas sketches are developed before the hard work begins: timbering, glueing, painting and constructing, up to the point where a small universe starts to take shape. With a complexity that is unique in their field, the artists craft every single detail of their various sceneries themselves. What follows are the costumes and staging of the models with colours and materials that come close to a baroque opulence. In an age of computer manipulation, this working method appears anachronistical, but much more than that, it comes across as refreshingly authentic.

  • Steur Patricia

    Biography : Patricia Steur has been a successful independent photographer since 1980. In her career, tattoo and rock and roll play an important role. She has worked for many magazines photographing celebrities as well as shooting CD covers. Her books include "The Rock Star Tattoo Encyclopedia" (1982) and "De Laatste Ridders" (1990), a book containing portraits of heroes who were decorated for their efforts during WW 2. This book was made into a documentary. A third book “Het leven is de Speelbal van de Tijd”, (1999) of black and white portraits of famous artists was also met with critical acclaim. “Made in Holland” (2004) was her 4th book about successful immigrants in Holland. Her photographic interests range from portraits of celebrities to tribal tattoos, from rock and roll to royalty. Her portraits include rock and roll legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, various artists including Andy Warhol and Dennis Hopper, politicians and royalty. Many of these photos can be seen in her book “Selected Portraits’ which was launched in conjunction with a successful traveling exhibition in 2005. Her passion however is in photographing indigenous people with tribal tattoos. She was able to work on a special project in this genre thanks to an invitation by Maori tattoo artist Gordon Toi Hatfield who is based in New Zealand. This collaboration has produced five successful exhibitions in The Netherlands. An exceptional book “Dedicated by Blood” portraying the renaissance of traditional tattooing in New Zealand was the final result. In November 2002 the book was launched in the Scheepvaart (Maritime) Museum in Amsterdam with an exhibition which was visited by over twenty-five thousand people. Since 1987 she has had numerous national and international exhibitions.
