Tom Holmes is an artist, sculptor and musician living and working in the NEPA valley. “I am drawn to working in the six elements of stone, metal, wood, light, ice and water. It gives me the ability to work intuitively. All possibilities can exist briefly before I impose parameters with regard to my emotional and intellectual contexts.” The undercurrents of natural decay,unity, duality,symmetry, space, time and dimension are at the heart of Tom’s creative energy. “I work seasonally, tracking the weather. Different temperatures demand independent responses to materials and approaches. “Ice follows the freezing mark of winter, stone and steel the exterior work space of summer. Spring begins the search for materials and fall settles all debts, emotional, physical and intellectual. ” My work is my life and I thrive on long days. There is only the transcendence of the everyday. Cooking, friends, love becomes the sublime witness of doing. Process for me is the essence of my day.”

” We spend so much of our lives navigating a sea of complex and conflicting signals, distracted and frustrated by random obstacles to understanding; doing our best along the way to avoid the conflict and sadness that combine to defeat our best intentions. Our task is a harvest of confusion, winnowing kernels of value from the cascade of screaming chaff – finding in the residue a hook to hold memory, an anchor to slow loss.” – Wes Christensen

Louisiana-born Scott Campbell is known throughout the world as being one of the most talented hands in the world of tattooing. After abandoning a career as a biochemist at the University of Texas, he fled to San Francisco, and began tattooing. He learned the craft at Picture Machine, one of the oldest shops in California, rich with stories and nicotine stained flash on the walls from it’s heyday in the 60′s and 70′s. He now owns and operates the legendary Saved Tattoo in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, whose client list includes New York’s art and design elite, fashion designers such as Marc Jacobs, and a long roster of celebrities including Heath Ledger, Josh Hartnett, Orlando Bloom, Helena Christensen, and Penelope Cruz. In recent years, he has gained much acclaim from fine art communities worldwide for his work in mediums other than skin, including intricately carved sculptures made out of US currency, a series of watercolor paintings based on his experiences during a 6 week stay in a maximum security prison in Mexico City, and graphite drawings done on the insides of eggshells. Campbell has only shown in galleries for a few years, but his work is already seen in some of the most revered collections and museums worldwide. He is celebrated as one of the brightest new voices in the New York art scene.

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s oil paintings focus on fictional figures that exist outside of specific times and places. In an interview with Nadine Rubin Nathan, Yiadom-Boakye describes her compositions as “suggestions of people…They don’t share our concerns or anxieties. They are somewhere else altogether.” This lack of fixed narrative leaves her work open to the projected imagination of the viewer. Her paintings are rooted in traditional formal considerations such as line, color, and scale, and can be self-reflexive about the medium itself, but the subjects and the way in which the paint is handled is decidedly contemporary. Yiadom- Boakye’s paintings are typically completed in a day to best capture a single moment or stream of consciousness.’ (Continue reading here..)

Alessandro Ripane was born in Genoa (Italy, but he’s lived and worked for a period in Sweden) exactly in the middle of 1989. Due to the lack of wild animals in the city of Genoa, Alessandro bought a lot of books about it. Due to the lack of superheroes in the city of Genoa, Alessandro bought a lot of comics about it. Needless to say, soon became an expert in both categories, even if now draw a little bit of everything, except the aliens, because it is not sure how they are dressed. Now he’s engaged to fight the fall of his hair, to compose sophisticated music of the future, to learn how to draw aliens and watch a lot of movies about monsters and zombies that he has not seen yet.
