Bernard Bouche gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition featuring works by:




Carlo Guaita born in 1954, Palermo, Italy works mainly on paper, as well as sculpture and painting. The artist looks for a new iconography of the modernity. Landscape representation is also an important source of inspiration for his work. Carlo Guaita ponders upon the relations between the work and the elaborated materials, adding conceptual and historical references to it.

Jorge Molder is a prominent representative of the mid-generation of Portuguese artists and an outstanding exponent of contemporary photography. The most important theme in his work is the absurd metaphysics of everyday human life. Most recently his work has revolved around the self-portrait, emphasising light and shadow, extreme angles and off-centre composition in an elegant visual language. Faced with a series of enlarged photos the viewer is confronted with intimacy at both the psychological and physical levels.

John Murphy’s practice can be characterised through his use of existing material, such as post cards, books, film stills, painting and poetry. His work often communicates themes of nostalgia, absence and sexuality with a subtle and exquisite gift for exactitude. The artist is preoccupied with the relationship between vision, things and language whilst playing on the theme of similarity and difference.
