Jean-François DUBREUIL (France), b. 1956. Lives and works in Paris. Since 2011, he co-creates the international art movement Discursive Geometry.
Since the mid-1970s his works have been based on weekly and daily newspapers - regional, national and foreign. Each painting is a kind of transcription of the front page or the whole paper. The color scheme has remained unchanged from the beginning: red for edvertisements, black for photos, grey or white for the rest which is not signified by other colors. Each series is identified by a code.
In 2017 he received the Aurélie Nemours Award.
Rita Ernst (Switzerland), b. 1956. Since 2011, she co-creates the international art movement Discursive Geometry. She paints series of paintings inspired by architecture, both sacred and secular. The process of transforming an architectural plan into a painting is carried out primarily by examining floor plans and building geometry, and then reducing the elements, leading to abstraction. It does not exactly reflect the plans of specific buildings, but rather presents a structural order symbolizing the space of the building. She is the author of individual exhibitions and participant of collective exhibitions in European galleries and art centers. Rita Ernst has received many awards and distinctions for her work. She lives and works in Zurich and in Trapani, Sicily.
Gerhard Hotter (Germany), b. 1955. Since 2011 he co-creates the international art movement Discursive Geometry. He creates works on paper, paintings and objects inspired by Langford's mathematical system. The analysis of this system leads the artist to visual structures in which he transforms the zero-one notation of the system, creating a new, own visual language. Hotter believes that in this transformed form of communication there is an image of the universe. The infinite and non-repetitive sequences of the Langford system allow the artist a variety of configuration options, which may also be behind musical works, landscapes, poems, or parts of them. Author of numerous individual exhibitions and participant of collective exhibitions in galleries, museums and artistic associations in Europe. His works are in private and public collections. He lives and works in Nuremberg and Paris.
Josef Linschinger (Austria), b. 1945. Since 2011, he co-creates the international art movement Discursive Geometry. He creates works on paper, paintings, objects and computer animations. In his works from the "Bild aus Text" series, he combines two information transfer systems: semantic and visual. Geometry is the basis for the characters of the alphabet. Linschinger turns the alphabet into a visual-conceptual statement that, in the form of dualism, should lead to unity and harmony. His works deal with the culturally important issue of the original means of transmitting thoughts. Through their form, they often become an artistic transliteration and create a contemporary context for historical non-alphabetic writings. Author of over 50 individual exhibitions and participant of over 400 collective exhibitions in most European countries, Israel, Japan, Canada, Korea, South Africa, Russia and the USA. In the years 1990-2009, the organizer of the Gmundner Symposien für Konkrete Kunst. He lives and works in Traunkirchen.
Grzegorz Mroczkowski (Poland) b. 1966. Since 2011, he co-creates the international art movement Discursive Geometry. He makes works on paper and paintings inspired by landscapes. However, he does not reduce the elements of the observed fragment of the landscape, appropriate to the tendencies of geometric abstraction in the spirit of Mondrian. Rather, he creates an impression of landscape as a mental model based on mathematical calculation combined with intuition. In the technique of yolk tempera, he creates on canvas, bringing to the geometrical structure a chance resulting from a hand gesture, optical vibration and lightness of color. Author of about 30 individual exhibitions and participant in over 50 group exhibitions. He lives and works in Warsaw.
Grzegorz SZTABIŃSKI, 1946-2020, lived and worked in Łódź, Poland.
Artists and Professor of philosophy (specialization aesthetics). The forms of his artistic activity include painting, drawing, installation art and – occasionally - performance. His works thus far have been divided into thematic cycles: Logical Landscapes, Symbolizations, Objects, The Writing of Nature, Self-Quotations: "A self-quotation let you draw the same form many times using different means. But is it really the same form?"
Joa Zak (Poland), b. 1979. From 2013, she co-creates the international art movement Discursive Geometry. The artist illustrates selected social behaviors of people related to their movement in private and public spaces, based on simultaneous drawings or an original database. In her works, she poses questions about contemporary forms of visualization of phenomena and complex social processes. Joa Zak redefines the visual message and thus shows an alternative way of presenting information resources. The context of her work is also mapping and the related principles of building a work of art. She lives and works in Kielce and Warsaw.
Maria CUEVAS, lives and works in Madrid, Spain. Since 2015, she co-creates the international art movement Discursive Geometry.
Professor at the Complutense University of Madrid. Data artist. Exploring Data and Art Boundaries. The algorithms and programs used in Random Color Codes Series reflect formal language and systemic aesthetic thinking. In this project, everything that happens in the supporting structure of the painting does so according to a previously established, random order, which is constructed using orders with varying degrees of complexity. The proposal presented responds to a concept of reality defined by a model of thinking that includes chance, unpredictability and indeterminism.
Przemek SULIGA (aka Dr Przemysław Suliga), b. 1983, lives and works in Kielce, Poland. Since 2018, he co-creates the international art movement Discursive Geometry.
Intermedia artist. His art is based on the concept of Artificial Life. The works are created with the life function generators. These systems reproduce realistic collective behavior of various organisms.
