Richard Lapham- I have a passion for psychology,  and I focus my work on understanding human nature and our consciousness.  I’ve explored how we perceive and internalize visual information in the past, and I am currently interested in  Jung’s collective unconsciousness, specifically the idea of archetypes. Using myself as a tool of exploring the unconscious, I visually document how my mind shapes and realizes familiar archetypes in a mash of mixed media. This process usually takes me through cycles of building up a space/subject and breaking it down again. The closest I’ve come to understanding my own unconsciousness is in the moments of ambiguity between a recognizable subject and total abstraction.

Sarah Eisenlohr- “My most recent collages are based on themes that are specific to my personal life. They are the byproducts of the mundane, predictability of our days and the more substantial moments that leave an impression on our minds. By creating new context within old photos with things like floating rocks, over-sized feathers and wandering figures, they become nostalgia-inspired landscapes of quiet discoveries and daydreams.”

Title: Blue (digital art, 42x42 cm )

The Sequence Series, is a reflective process of continual constant sifting through ideas about city, environment, and inhabitants.  Through this process of daily photographing of my city environment, I reflect on the way these spaces are inhabited and influenced by  how people move through and are effected by their surroundings. By sifting through the photographical information, I can choose key areas of visual importance to recreate and communicate movement, tension, and emotion. These drawings, lines and color on a surface, connect a series of pieces that work together to create a storyline, dependent upon how the viewer approaches the works. The story is mostly left to the viewer to interpret based on their unique intrinsic experience with similar architecture and daily functions. Original photographs from the series that directly influenced these pieces have been left throughout Louisville for anyone to collect and have a piece of the larger works.

15inch x 15inch Oil, Ink, Aerosol, Photo, Canvas 225.00

Magda Dudziak - “I am a multidisciplinary visual artist working primarily in collage, mixed media, sculpture and printmaking. My recent body of work reflects my interest in fragmentation ( fragments of memory), displacement, human emotions, passage of time, loss of innocence and human relationships. It fascinates me that I am able to deconstruct and interpret already existing images to create new meaning(s).

I’m currently pursuing my BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.”

Albert Stern (Stickrust) “My paintings are not portraits. They are inspired from the work I do as an acupuncturist and body worker. As a healer I work with my clients’ bodies as well as their energy, spirit, and personal power. Through this healing work, I watch people transform, grow and find their Personal Light. Transformation is not always easy or pretty but it is always beautiful. It is a powerful journey full of darkness and light. My paintings look to capture the beauty of the journey.  These paintings are created with my hands, fingers, and minimal tools. No brushes are used. Albert paints, teaches, and works with clients in Denver CO." 

 Noah Jackson-The majority of my work revolves around finding the fundamental components of a landscape and then distorting those elements. I have always been fascinated by the process of perceiving dimensions, and how easily those perceptions can be skewed and fabricated.

Title: Barn (1) - 18" x 24" - $600

 

Cherelles Appleton - The images I make are a surreal take on the representation of the body through photographic media. Sometimes they are humorous, sometimes unsettling. I use cut outs from fashion editorials and adverts to create strange assemblages, with the body as its central subject. The body has been an enduring interest for me; originally setting out to work in performance, I used my body as material, influenced by the work of experimental dramatists like Meyerhold, Grotowski and Berkoff. Rather than working from the interior to produce believable representations of emotions, I was interested in working from the outside in, using exaggerated and sometimes bizarre movements and gestures to express emotion. I try to separate ‘the self’ from the body and focus on what is left. Reducing still further by using photography, my collages employ the flatness of the photographic print as a distancing tool, so whilst the ultra crisp fashion images suggest a depth, the cut edges remind the eye of their 2D nature. The body is cut, distorted, reconfigured and assembled into absurd beings, insect like or grotesque.

Title: Tristan, 2014- collage on board 42x59cm 

Kevin Corrado ”is a fine artist attending SASD for graphic design. His photography walks the line between lyricism and surrealism, never straying to far from either. When a piece calls for a model, he either uses himself or a close friend. His compositions are simple and elegant: The imagery could be best described as quiet and peaceful - at times seeming to transcend the boundaries of the image.”

Title: A Desolate Dream

Enrico Varrasso- “This piece is from a series of images i made a couple of years back. they were created digitally by combining layers of vector line art, scanned textures and painted surfaces. always get a great response from them.

this piece isn’t available just yet but you can pick up two others in the series from Pi Creative Art, they sell them in sizes ranging from 18”x18” all the way to 41”x41” on paper, canvas, metal and acrylic (the metal and acrylic are amazing to see, adds a new dimension to the pieces)”

AMEXXVPHOTOGRAPHY -I am student from the UK in my final year  of Film and TV production; although I am a photographer and a visual artist. With my images I want to create something completely different from the original ‘photograph’
