Every one of Rita’s artworks captures a unique feeling in a specific moment in time that she hopes to share with the viewer. Whether via abstraction or an impressionistic landscape inspired by the works of Claude Monet, Rita’s heavily textured oil paintings express a warm feeling of soulfulness and her loose brushstrokes leave the works open for spiritual interpretation.
In the age of migration and multicultural families, no one has to be one thing - Winnie straddles three countries of Indonesia, China, and the U.S where she worked as educator as well as artist. In her mixed-media works, tropical and botanical motifs are not relegated as an exotic backdrop but intermingle with human bodies. Some motifs are more pronounced, like figures sitting in the position of or making hand gestures of Buddha. But Winnie's playful collage uses these pieces to resist the sense of a fixed origin, fully giving in celebrating rather than resisting the confusions of having multitudinous identities.

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.
Speaking of the subtle ways environment affects a painter’s color choices, Beth’s choices scream East Coast. From the thick of acrylic paint emerges Beth’s impression of landscapes, styles alternating between abstract waves and naturalistic scenery.
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.
Fairytales exist everywhere people have desires and dreams - and Elody is ready to listen to it. They may take the form of more traditional iconography like dragons and damsels, or something specific to the modern city like ghostly, faceless figures in the crowd. Both ways yield the view of human bodies as they are molded by images projected onto them by ourselves and by others.
