KILEY AMES "Fragments are defined as “isolated and incomplete parts of something.” I view fragments as the ceaseless amount of ideas and emotions in which people originate and through which relationships are formed. Some pieces come together easily, some overlap creating layer after layer of complexity, while others pieces break apart. But it is precisely that fragmentation which allows for new possibilities and concepts to emerge.

ANA MARIA FARINA Ana Maria is a Brazilian artist and educator based in Brooklyn. She received her Master of Arts degree in Art and Art Education from Columbia University in 2016. Her work has been exhibited in galleries in New York City and São Paulo, and she works as an arts educator in many different settings; from a progressive preschool to one-time workshops for adults. Her practice is process-based; a yogini herself, she draws and paints as meditation, a spiritual act. Her work is mostly abstract and focused on the experience of creation; she uses lines, textures, colors and movement to explore her deepest thoughts, feelings and desires at the moment - conscious or unconsciously.

ANGELO GIOKAS As an artist coming of age at a time when the distinctions between modern art, street art and traditional art seem to be irrelevant, Angelo’s paintings embody an energetic clash of aesthetic paradigms. Collage elements and painterly textures blend with heavy-handed abstraction and landscape references. The works embody his desire to cultivate raw, self-taught talent into something romantic, passionate and successful.

ERIK OTTO Otto is a mixed-media artist who brings together multiple disciplines spanning from traditional paintings to light sculpture and site-specific installation to express fleeting moments of change and discovery. Following a personal pursuit and study to the state of being and becoming, the source of his work is often autobiographical yet void of being overly representational or literal resulting in open-ended visual metaphors that capture our minds and spirits.

KOO SEUNGHWUI  Seunghwui creates her works drawing inspiration from the daily happenings and intricate moments of her life in NYC.  Her work is a commentary on the lives of New Yorkers as she has witnessed.  She was born in South Korea, where she first had the idea of combining the pig’s head and human body. The significance of the pig’s head lies in the different symbolic meanings from the Eastern and Western cultures. Good fortune (Eastern) and greed (Western), two very different connotations of the pig, are themes that are a part of her works. She uses resin, acrylic, plaster, clay, and mixed media to create her works.

KIRSTIN LAMB "I create abstract pictures and portraits, large and small, to add to the still life objects staged in space.  My recent work features both acrylic prop-paintings and miniature gouache paintings informed by the arrangements of these props.  I am interested in how paintings retain their relevance by taking on ideas of death of painting or a kind of comedic curation-as-painting."

AGGIE PAVLIDIS "I make and create as a means to better understand myself, and the world around me. My work focuses on the ways in which we process and internalize our surroundings and experiences. It's a balance of control and chaos, of making sense of what's out of our hands, and defining what we don't fully understand. There's a tension in those moments when we're moving through a metaphysical fog, unable to act with any certainty, or know if our next step will land."

RICHARD VERGEZ Vergez is a Cuban-American visual artist. His background in graphic design and audio/visual collaboration is reflected though his hand-made collaged works on paper and mixed media. Imagery which combines both human and technological elements relates to ideas surrounding an ever-evolving modern dystopian identity. "I’m interested in the absence of color and the space between sounds. Objectively, the emotions of fear, humor, confusion, and nostalgia impact my work. Each of these emotions can be illustrated by the idea of some­thing missing through as little design as possible.

CHARLES WILKIN “My work is a loose collection of thoughts and observations in many ways and less about one specific theme. I see it as being a reflection of the world we live in, with all its ugliness and cruelty. But from that, I strive to extract the beauty and empathy hidden underneath and within us all, revealing the unknown, the unspoken and intangible things that make us truly human. For me, collage as a medium replicates this frenetic and inherent collision of people, culture, and emotions we all experience. I believe the true meaning of my work is derived directly from the intertwining of these associations, and the spontaneity of my creative process. This gives my work the freedom to live creatively in the moment, and the ability to respond to current events, despite my imagery being derived primarily from vintage magazines.”
