By Naives and Visionaries

Naives and Visionaries are proud to announce the publication ‘Painting Regarding the Present’, edited by André Hemer and designed by Anne Büttner.

This intimate publication includes twenty-seven painters, each represented by a single painting made during 2016. ‘Painting Regarding the Present’ is a collection of paintings that can best be described as an esoteric yearbook of painting practice.
Designer Anne Büttner has conceived an original design that captures the experience of how we look at painting in the contemporary world. Whilst artist André Hemer contributes a piece of writing that playfully reflects on painting as a representation of its time of making.

We love painting, and we believe that the featured painters each hold a strong and independent position of what painting can be in 2016.
Included artists:
Cornelia Baltes, Martin Basher, Ry David Bradley, Alice Browne, Catherine Clayton-Smith, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Dejan Dukic, Joanne Greenbaum, Kate Groobey, Ziggy Grudzinskas, Sebastian Haslauer, Flora Hauser, André Hemer, Celia Hempton, Ridley Howard, Judy Millar, David Ostrowski, Michael Pybus, Josh Reames, Titania Seidl, Travess Smalley, Yorgos Stamkopoulos, Kate Steciw, Kristian Sturi, Russell Tyler, Letha Wilson, Guy Yanai

Naives and Visionaries also invite you to attend two forthcoming international launches for the publication. Occurring in both Berlin and Sydney these launches will provide a first look at the publication and an opportunity to meet some of the artists involved.
