Featured Artist – Maria Ivanova

I create “photos from different worlds” as I call them, and animated films. In my works I use photos, textures and paint a lot of fur and hair. Characters in my works don’t have names, and they are not animals, nor are they humans. They are what they are – different type of species from faraway. Every “photo” is provided with a very short story, sometimes just few words. It’s like as if you are walking down the street and some people are passing by, and for a brief moment you heard scraps of conversations and thoughts… the next moment they are gone. I love this feel of mystery and that something is left untold. I think there is a lot of freedom in open endings.
Sometimes when everyhting in life becomes overwhelming, I seek retreat, I seek shelter within myself. It is then, when it opens – a door, or a window… and I can catch a glimpse of something not connected to daily troubles. Some light, some shadows, something otherworldly. And if in that moment I am sensitive enough, these light and shadows can leave traces, they can transform, like in photography, into visual form, into images, into frozen moments of someone’s live and untold stories.

Featured Artist – Christian Aguilar

Christian Aguilar brings life back to Cubism with his bold use of Fauvist deep and exotic colors. Christian paintings incorporate symbolism that expresses more concisely the thought and story behind each painted scene. Nothing is accidental everything is predetermined. Each painting Christian pushes himself further than the previous painting had taken him, always venturing deeper into the uncharted beauty of the universe.
