Featured Artist – Chenyi Sun

Chenyi Sun (1991, Shanghai, China). He has studied painting for many years. He is skilled at oil painting, water media, acrylic, sketch, pastel, printmaking, mixed media.Sun is using artistic languages to present his perception of a three-dimensional world in a two-dimensional picture while at the same time expressing ideas surrounding the feeling of isolation and loneliness. He is interested in exploring the relationship between people and the world in which they live. Relationships are always complicated, and everyone has their own perspective on the world and their relationship to it. Through isolation, He explore the sincerest version of the person inside. He found that using different reflections of mirrors and glass helps to increase space. The rooms or spaces he paints a narrow world where the feeling of isolation can be exaggerated. Whether alone at home or a crowded subway car, people can feel equally isolated. Meanwhile, most of his work will connect time and space to contrast the feeling of isolation between vagueness and reality. He presents this movement in his subway series.

Featured Artist – Paul Pinzarrone

This work is a series of updated versions of The Penitent Magdalene. It is a study of sorrow, shame, seduction, sensuality and sadness. They are other-worldly, suggesting a religiousness but with fractal tattoos of sensual vixens [or are they saints?] and bilateral symmetry often witnessed in churches. These are all digital, built with digital photography, fractal, flame and painting software, printed on metallic paper on plexiglas. Each of these draws from the Magdalenes of Titian, LaTour, Perugino and Caravaggio.

Featured Artist – IRENE VÍQUEZ

Figuration is part of the pareidolia of our human perception, when we see clouds or plants with faces, they are the recognition of our being in nature. Therefore, this is my sense of figurative art.
The two paintings I am submitting, represent two ancestral aboriginal plants that appear as human beings when they are seen. And also I am submitting two portraits of our Earth planet, called IRÍRIA by the bribri aborigins and the other one, SULARÄ SEED GIRL, called like that by the cabecar aborigins, both from my country Costa Rica.
