Anke Carola Broeschen
Abstract & free painting, Mosaic/Set Designer
The artist Anke Carola Broeschen was followed by private tutoring in abstract and free painting from the stage designer (mentor) Andreas Szalla in Bochum, Germany, Zurich, Switzerland and at the Salzburg Festival between 2000 and 2007. In the summer of 2005, she travelled and held her first vernissage on the island of Menorca. The island promotes the creativity of the artist with its light and the intensive colours. Faces and figures carved in rock stimulate the imagination and additional impressive moments are to be discovered in nature, these then being transferred to canvas or paper. The works of art of the artist Anke Carola Broeschen have now been produced on the Island of Menorca and nationally and internationally exhibited since 2009. The opening of the gallery in Mahón now makes it possible to exhibit works of art on Menorca. The diversity and pastel coloured light in the sky and the ocean, the nature and the sea, combined with relaxation and serenity are what provide an enormous inspiration. Material that comes from the nature and the coast for example, are included in the collages, as are shards and ceramic included in the mosaics.

Sculptures, Painting and Fashion
Germany, France, Spain, USA, and UK are all countries that Italian Cristian Lanfranchi has spent time living in. His career has taken him from advertising and illustration to fashion working as a visual merchandiser, fantasy jewellery maker and stylist at Milan, London and Tokyo fashion shows. After settling on the beautiful island of Menorca Cristian unpacked his vast collection of diverse materials gathered over the years and began creating this new body of work that involves meticulous embellishment of everyday objects and inspired by the global sustainability conversation, he's reusing discarded clothes and hospitality textiles for a fashion collection made of unique pieces under the artworn label.
Alfredo Quintana Garay
Collage digita Tintorera
The collages by Alfredo Quintana Garay (1974), Tintorera, are debtors of Dadaism and Surrealism, as well as the romantic spirit of the nineteenth century, all of this agitated with the pop culture consumed over the years. Alfredo started making collage in the 90s, when he was studying Communication Sciences in Mexico. Originally, he worked in a traditional way, cutting and pasting images of different bibliographic findings. In 2001 he published the poetry plaquette Primavera de carroñas that he illustrated with collages; at the same time he began to assemble objects in the tradition of artists such as Joseph Cornell. Since 2013, after a period dedicated to the publication of a magazine, he took up the artisan collage and decided to experiment with digital. The reading of Poesía y fin de siglo and El arco y la lira, by Octavio Paz, led a young Quintana Garay to discover the surrealists and other determining poets for his vision of the world. Artists such as the Czech Jindřich Štyrský, René Magritte, the Dadaist Hannah Höch and Max Ernst have been permanent influences, as well as the music of Nurse With Wound and Pérez Prado. The –convulsive– beauty, chance and dreams are preponderant themes in his collages. In the same way, love and insomnia complement the daily torments that nourish the work of Tintorera. Among his future challenges is learning to apply painting, drawing and other materials in his collages, as well as giving more workshops in San Miguel de Allende, CDMX and Spain! For now, Alfredo works on two books of poems illustrated with collage, The Nine Muses of the Apocalypse and ABCDelirio. The first is a tribute to women inspired by actresses like Hedy Lamarr and Winona Ryder. The second is an alphabet with collage –accompanied by a poem for each letter– using words that begin with the letter in question. The collages of Tintorera have been published in magazines such as Tapas (Spain), Esquire Mexico and Latin America, Mens Health en Español and Forbes (Spain).

FLOR DA FER
I am Loris Farolfi, a recycled iron artist living between Romagna and Menorca. For generations my family and I have been in the world of auto repairs and parts. From here, from all the pieces that were replaced and thrown away, my passion was born. No longer just scrap or waste, but they take on a second "life" and a new shape. My journey started 25 years ago with the MUKA project with two dear friends, to then continue alone, arriving at new projects and new studies.
Emanuele Mattarucchi is an italian craftsman based in Minorca for almost a decade. His studies in the construction of theatrical and cinematografic sets have been complemented by his self-taught passion in the realization of puppets, automatas and all sorts of gatgets powered by mechanisms.
FISHING FOR JEWELS represents part of the artistic iconographic world of Xavier Monclús using jewelery as a means of expression. Thus, houses, boxes, trees, animals and everyday objects make up this suggestive constellation of works presented this in the Gallery BROESCHEN in Maó. Xavier Monclús, exhibits a wide range of jewels such as brooches, rings, earrings and pendants and in a manner consistent with the line of the gallery, much of these small and charming works are inspired by marine animals.
