<-- Born in Bogota, Colombia, lives and works in Washington, DC, USA. Since the early 1990s, Nelson Gutierrez's has focused on creating two and three-dimensional artworks, conceptual objects and installations, based on current sociopolitical issues. Through art he looks to better understand societal conflict and its implications psychologically and socially. His art addresses issues of longing, fear, grief and vanity. he juxtaposes materials such as charcoal, ink, wood, metal, blood, wax, water, glass, light and photographs that together also have symbolic relevance to the issue he is exploring. He uses a variety of different mediums to express these feelings and tell a story that is universally understood to us all but experienced more intensely by a select few.

began his professional career in a rather unorthodox way. After getting in trouble for drawing parodies of his history teacher in high school, Jason’s quick-thinking principle hired him to draw caricatures of different faculty members. A professional artist was born. Jason went on to study fine art illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago for two years before beginning his professional work in earnest. Jason’s illustrations and paintings have been featured as covers and interior pieces for Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Utne Reader, TIME, The New Yorker, Der Spiegel, Business Week, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Weekly Standard, MAD magazine, GOLF Digest, AD WEEK, KING magazine, Revolver, Guitar Player, The Village Voice, Penguin Group, Disney, The New York Observer, New Line Cinema, Universal Pictures, Aardman Animation, and Sony Image, among others. Jason also worked as a character designer on Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, helping to create such characters as the Red Queen, the Tweedles, the Bandersnatch and more.

lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. In 2003 she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from the Victorian College of the Arts. Khamara's practice to date has sought to disrupt photography's smooth, two-dimensional surfaces by building sculptures and collages entirely out of photographs. A flat image, usually figurative, is transformed either by slicing directly into the photographic skin and pulling features into three dimensional form, or by taking multiple shots of a single subject which are then collaged. Often evoking biological processes of replication while also engaging with notions of self-representaiton in an era of instant, endlessly generative (re)productions technologies, her work is best understood as a deeply psychological response to contemporary notions of being (in the existentialist sense).
