Fiumano Projects and Orion Contemporary merge to become Fiumano Clase
Herman Lohe, Evening, 2016. Oil on canvas, 80 x 60 cm.

LONDON.- On 7th November 2017, contemporary gallery Fiumano Projects merged with Orion Contemporary, to become Fiumano Clase. In recent years Andrés Clase and Francesca Fiumano have collaborated on numerous exhibitions and projects. The success of these collaborations, pooling over thirty years of combined knowledge and experience, resulted in the decision to form Fiumano Clase. The two comment: “After sixteen years as professionals in the art world, the forming of Fiumano Clase is our most exciting milestone yet. We see our role as continuing to encourage and support the very best ideas, techniques and practice, something which is crucial to the growth of our artists and the gallery’s programme.”

The gallery’s debut exhibition - which runs from 7th November - 8th December 2017- showcases two of their most intriguing contemporary artists: Nicole Wassall and Herman Lohe. British artist, Wassall, and Swedish artist, Lohe explore similar themes: the fragility and fallibility of man, our basic needs and our relationship to nature.

Lohe’s work is “really about conveying emotions. It can be a landscape painting or a video installation but it is about how to touch upon the eternal questions of joy, sorrow, life and death.” He has worked for approximately twenty-five years, exploring the tension between ‘classical’ painting and ‘contemporary’ video art. Similarly, Wassall describes her process as using “an understanding of neuroscience to push open the swing doors of hunches and blur the dotted lines between senses and perception.” She sees neuroscience as particularly exciting in its potential to push the boundaries of contemporary art. As well as paintings on canvas and sculpture, the show includes multiple video works, demonstrating Fiumano Clase’s commitment to supporting adventurous and varied practice. The collaboration of these artists for the launch exhibition simultaneously reflects the coming together of Fiumano Projects and Orion Contemporary.

The new venture represents a union of both a professional and personal relationship, an exciting juncture in both Andrés and Francesca’s lives. Each bring their individual qualities to the new partnership and both are equally energized and excited by the future plans for the growth and development of Fiumano Clase. Fiumano Clase will continue to build upon the longstanding relationships forged with both artists and collectors over the past 16 years.

Between them, Clase and Fiumano have worked with internationally renowned artists: Joakim Allgulander, Takefumi Hori, Sarah Lederman, Sam Burford, and Cara Mills, to name a few.
