Cows – Icons

At once regal and monumental, these hyperrealistic cows, like modern-day madonnas, are portrayed against a neutral background. They appear magnified, the object of our fascinated gaze, when usually they are the ones gazing at us as we pass.

auto-portrait 2


Sacha Schwarz pokes fun at himself in a series of self-portraits in the style of the great masters. Whether in the guise of St Sebastian, a Greek god, or simply as himself, an artist, standing against a gilt background, Sacha uses the self-portrait as an outlet for his boundless imagination, a trigger to push back his limits.



The power and beauty of men in movement against a gold-leafed background. Inspired by Eadwaerd Muybridge’s pioneering work, The Human Figure in Motion (1887). Grace, vitality, virility.

singe & chat fable de La Fontaine


Inspired by the Fables of Jean de la Fontaine, this series of paintings teems with clever animals, hand-written text, and precious flashes of metal and fabric. Reminiscent of medieval art, they deploy humour and simple imagery to convey a serious message.
