I hand- pick photos from a variety of sources and carefully craft them into a single image. I frequently search the internet, magazines, books, and blogs among other methods, for materials and inspiration. In addition, I use my own photographs in some of my more personally significant pieces. My work is most greatly influenced by members of the surrealist art movement such as Man Ray and Hannah Hock. In addition, I follow contemporaries such as Ryan McGinley and Stanley Kubrick. Each piece features different moods and energies that reflect my innermost desires, fantasies and dreams around the globe. My traditional East Coast upbringing clashes with the time I’ve spent on the West Coast in the past decade, which creates juxtaposition in my art. I occasionally include myself in my artwork as the darker shapes, while my musical influences are brighter. Each piece I create serves as a temporary escape from my reality. I always give viewers clues in order to get their bearings, yet leave room for creativity in the details. I find the digital art world to be misunderstood, and hope that viewers can use my work as temporary vessels to embrace their desires fully." - Lindsey Price  photo world_zpsefm564kj.jpg  photo oasis_zpsdot3bvjh.jpg

Martin Tomsky

 photo forest-dragon._zpsrw8mxeyp.jpg  photo meeting._zpsfj1jqvro.jpg  photo mouse._zpslvhrk6ni.jpg London based artist Martin Tomsky creates illustrative, relief pieces built up from layers of laser cut, stained plywood. These range in size and shape from very small items of jewellery to much larger, bespoke artworks. Each piece is hand assembled to create an organic object that bridges the gap between craft, illustration and sculpture. Martin grew up in South London as the youngest of seven children. His childhood was spent surrounded by books – relics from his parents' past as Czech publishers and book smugglers. Amidst the chaos of his large family, Martin's drawing habit grew unchecked until it developed into a full blown addiction. Since graduating from Camberwell College of Arts Martin has translated his art from the page to the physical by creating intricate works of art which both are both decorative and narrative. Though he is no longer a compulsive doodler he is still frequently distracted by events that didn’t happen in places that don’t exist.  photo angel._zpseyii91jl.jpg  photo stag-geo._zpsbreg2day.jpg  photo moving-castle._zps9zemasbv.jpg

From an early age picture books devoted to 19th and 20th century painting were more valuable to him than toys. The Impressionists were his idols and museums were his arenas. This naive fascination with art and its history would persists in varied degrees throughout his adolescence, contributing to a full-blown vocation in adulthood. He graduated from Illinois State University in 2011 with a Master’s degree in Visual Culture, a discipline with a multi-pronged emphasis on art history, visual theory, and philosophy.  photo Sculptures-of-a-Boy-and-Girl-With-Paint-Tests-Diptych-1-and-2-paint-on-found-ceramic-2014-11-x-4-x-3-003_zpsggp8j7j9.jpg  photo Bust-Of-A-Boy-With-Spots-1-paint-on-found-ceramic-2010-10-x-6-x-45-005_zpsgw77padr.jpg

Dustin Yellin

Now living in Brooklyn, New York, Yellin’s works include paintings, drawings, installation, performance, and sculpture, comprised of clippings from magazines and books, paint and paper. Taken together, his work forms an archive of both gestures and images completely accumulative, yet never totalizing. Yellin archives material/images/gestures by including them in his malleable, shifting subjects, redefining what is “important” (what is thought to somehow define the subject) by including images of all kinds: sports stars, works of art, domestic objects, plants, animals. There is no privilege conferred on one image over another. Rather, they are set into place by an internal logic to each piece that dictates that all images are somehow related within his fragmentary, distended figures. His large glass blocks recall, in their extreme hermeneutical diversity (forms within forms within forms, images within images within images) both a past in which the representation of the human form was art’s most recognizable enterprise and a future in which that enterprise is deeply complicated by the fact that the human form has been shredded, reformatted, revised, redesigned, and made precarious and permeable by technological and ecological shifts. Yellin’s work refers to particular art historical periods, Modernist collage and the redefinition of spatial relations via Cubism. They also evoke science fictional futures in which we cryogenically freeze ourselves to be shipped to some other, lusher world.

Previously, even as a child, I'd held very little interest in painting and drawing. I admired an artist's skill with the sort of mysticism that comes from the myth that art related talents are ones that you are born with. I started painting by chance and quickly learned that it was a skill that could be acquired like any other. I have been painting every day since. My work begins with ideas. When working with clients, I form ideas around detailed research and consultation, making concept sketches that offer a vision of what the final result will be. Once painting begins, I outline in white or blue and design lighting through shadow guides, then I paint corner to corner in complete detail as apposed to in layers." - Kemi Mai  photo tumblr_nttu5n29Nh1smml5ro1_500_zpsa8nt3b6s.png
