Jolynn Krystosek

Jolynn Krystosek was born in California and earned her BA from San Francisco State University and her MFA from Hunter College in New York. She now lives and works in New York City. Her work with wax floral relief carvings and large-scale, site-specific paper cut-outs denote a reverence for traditional craftsmanship and make reference to Dutch still life painting, botanicals, and Victorian cameos. Both media demonstrate Krystosek’s mastery of materials and her ability to evoke beauty and delicacy from her compositions. Simultaneously, due to the vulnerability of the media and temporal nature of the subject matter, the images that are produced also hint at impending decay and the fragility of life.

Jim Lind

Taken from the artist’s website:

” I’m Jim Lind and an entering senior at Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. I strongly believe that each person is made up of a collection of the stories they tell. For this reason I’ve always felt compelled to share my stories with others. Whether real, somewhat real, or entirely fictional, these events expose that which is truly important to me. Often the images illicit fabricated narratives that are deeply rooted from the stories I experienced as a child. My photographs are a window into the realities and fantasies that I immerse myself in every day. There is a need to create new work that visually excites the imagination much in the same way a book does. While a picture may be worth 1000 words, a great picture escapes words and enters the imagination. ”

Masakatsu Sashie

Masakatsu Sashie’s works are often called “orb paintings” since he paints details from his youth as very detailed, compact spheres. Hailing from Kanazawa, Japan, his art captures the scope of his youthful activities and the orbs often represent memories that fade away from the world. His previous works were full of dark imagery, but his more recent pieces include vibrant, often colorful details such as vending machines, fast food signage, and videogames. He cites Mobile Suit Gundam as an influence, and enjoys art by Yukio Oscar Oiwa and Antonio Lopez Garcia. Currently, he teaches at his alma mater, Kanazawa College of Art. ‘ (via Art Info)
