There is a sense of history in Shira's paintings. They are built up patiently like the hands of potters that their surfaces resemble, but left to be scratched and marked by some unknown force. Even the central objects are pressed into the thick layer of venetian plaster instead of sitting on top. In a world of polished surfaces, Shira's use of materials restores the power of time.
As a process-based artist inspired by Earths ever-changing surface tensions, Renee explores the manipulation of paint, and layering of color, to achieve sculptural like results that droop, ripple, crack and pool on the canvas. Further engaging the elements of heat, wind, water and gravity, she pushes paint to its limit, allowing each color to display its individual ‘signature effect’, which is studied, layered and re-worked to reveal highly tactile and seductive surfaces that characterize her contemporary color field paintings.
Ayane Kurai paints from the soul, rendering her subjects into soft abstraction. Painting is the most accurate form of her self expression. Marrying physical and mental she is able to emote with the world through her art. Ayane uses all senses available to her when working, combining all aspects of her subject to create a work that most accurately embodies everything about it.
Sarah Dineen holds a BFA from Montserrat College of Art and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. She has exhibited internationally and has been featured in art publications including Hyperallergic and New American Paintings.
Rebecca has a MacGyver-like talent when it comes to painting, using a blend of different textures, patterns, colors, and handmade brushes to create her complex landscapes . Her work balances a hyper-intelligent sensitivity with a free flowing and spontaneous expression. If Rebecca’s paintings were school children, they’d be in the gifted and talented program (but then probably be kicked out a week later for using shortcuts to do long division).
Suzanne’s work balances itself on a non-linear timeline, reconciling the past, present, and future through unexpected shapes and colors. Through her willingness to embrace emptiness, Suzanne is able to create a sense of wholeness and harmony which settle her paintings, yet still allow them to sit just out of reach. Her approach to abstraction is mysterious and elusive, but is punctuated by an overwhelming sense of optimism, as though they are pulling us towards the future.
Nature and geography have something in common: their boundaries are put in place by humans and are all but made up. Takashi Harada dissolves these natural and geographical boundaries in his artwork. For Takashi, all natural things have a common and equal value. When in nature, he believes, you connect back to it one atom at a time. Born in Japan, Takashi’s international existence made him face his Japanese identity as well his identity within the natural world. His art reflects that feeling, blurring natural light and color in ethereal paintings that merge harsh divisions and avoid representation in favor of capturing feeling.
Expressive and vulnerable, Molly’s paintings read like an unpredictably eloquent dream journal. A cloudy haze of bright colors are expertly synthesized to evoke memories of a time and place which feel familiar, though ultimately unknown. As a skilled colorist, Molly creates abstract moments of nostalgia and sentimentality. Molly’s pieces are made up of experiences, both lived and imagined. She is able to capture small moments and transfer them onto canvas.
Debbi's works are sneaky in a sense that, instead of denying the existence of a frame, they subtly push against and peak out from it (have you noticed the pairs of eyes in some of her paintings?) Neat square pieces on the outer boundaries of the frame devolve into patterns, curves, and patches of sprayed paint. Some of Debbi's paintings actually look like puzzles, challenging you to play an active role - only to reveal that, in the end, her puzzles yield fun for the sake of it rather than a finished picture.
Petra Nimtz rarely works on just one piece at a time; applying the next layer before the last has dried, she composes pieces with both care and spontaneity. Petra paints bold gestures, spreading the newest streak of paint with a brush, palette knife, and even her hands to create semi-translucent layers that distinguish each stroke as their own unique statement. Her large scale, earth toned works are resolutely abstract. The bold composition is the star of the artworks, creating a feeling that is as grounded as it is exciting.
