Curina salutes unruly women everywhere! This collection is inspired by women who defy control, from social constructs, from beauty norms, and even cancer.
20% of proceeds from artwork in this collection will be donated to P.ink, a non-profit organization empowering women to take back their bodies after mastectomies by providing tattoos at no cost.
Floating from Colombia, Texas, and now Chicago, Juan creates their own mythologies from narratives they encountered in these places - from cowboys in popular culture to the jungle that remains fond in their childhood memory. When placed in an alien setting like the jungle, cowboys no longer have the macho, confident air but look like tragic heroes and the clash between soccer players become more erotic than violent.
A video and book artist-turned-painter, Troy still hasn't lost the wonder of new materials like toys, molding paste, and most recently flower-patterned plastic bags. Rather than playing fixed roles in a prefabricated play, his works together explore a constellation of loosely related sentiments like serious absurdity, the ineffable scale of cosmic time, surveyor marks, and rat traps around New York. These moments when existential issues suddenly intrude into everyday life or vice versa are most pronounced in the contrast between the digital hot pink he frequents and the scratched, worn out textures like peeled subway ads that accompany it.
Many people confess to a feeling of awe at seeing remnants of old civilizations. But oh wait, Anna's paintings in neon and pastel wash don't just focus on the time that landmarks endured, but the original fantasy they must have inspired. Namely, these sculptures submerge into the ground as if they've grown out of it, echoing the Olmec and Aztec beliefs that rocks and other landmarks are already animate. Their gravity doesn't come from the fact that they represent higher spirits, but that they are converging points for human and nature - and for painting, representation and our "reading into" it?
Hanna Washburn’s soft sculptures sag and bulge in shapes that reference human anatomy. Their plush forms grow almost organically from clothing, furniture, and found objects. Hanna’s work is focused on associations; the materials she uses come from objects with previous stories told in fabrics that come from domestic interiors (upholstery, gingham table cloths, curtains) and the sculptures she creates blend the feminine, grotesque, maternal, modest, and sexual.
Is there something prophetic about Saskia Fleishman's name? Because...pardon us for the terrible pun but her landscapes are fully fleshy. In a twist of fate, fluid and ethereal things like cloud or waves of the sea have been built up with sand, while backgrounds of striking techicolor recede away from the material world.
