This work is a study of how nature and power rhyme. It is an exploration of candy-colored sensual puzzles printed on metallic paper on the back side of clear plexiglas. Viewers are drawn in closer to feel comforted yet disturbed, to wonder if it is science fiction or science illustration, mythology or an updated version of Titian’s master paintings. Tensions are created with hints of sensuality but paused at the detachment.Read More Featured Artist | Paul Pinzarrone
I am an expressionist artist and my work is concerned not with objective reality but is metaphorical — telling a story through the symbolism of life. I strive to evoke reactions either positive or negative. Distortion, exaggeration, and fantasy are the filters through which I paint the modern world. My work is not conventional, academic, or the new modernism. I am creating a new avant-garde.
I believe in equality and I want my work to reflect that. The stories in my paintings are situations that everyone faces equally, I paint them from the female perspective because, unfortunately, women are still targeted unfairly so I put them front and center to, in my way, show that we are all equal.Read More Featured Artist | Ric Conn

My heritage, my travels and life experiences so far have given me the opportunity of exploring and expressing my ideas and emotions through the media of painting and photography. Through them I hope to visualize and create what I may not be able to communicate through actions or words. I hope to create something unique from the mundane, to celebrate life and share my culture and art with whoever is willing to see and appreciate it.
I present a portrait to my viewer and hope that they see in it what I saw or something completely different and maybe unleash the same emotions in the mind of the viewer, emotions that I felt and enjoyed.Read More Featured Artist – Sudyut Sinha

My creativity often leads me to the edge of the figurative and non-figurative abstract worlds, luring me back and forth across this delicate divide on my artistic journey.
Abstract is the art form which speaks to me the loudest; while it requires an undeniable form of self-discipline to control flow, rhythm and energy, it abides to no rules and it stands alone as an art form which allows anything to come to life. Abstract art leads the viewers and painters alike on a thrilling path of discovery where the rational mind no longer dictates how things are or should be and where everything is palpable and resonates if only we allow ourselves the freedom to stop thinking.Read More Featured Artist – Helen Canetta

“I am a realist through and through, apolitical and not moralizing. This realism, which tends less to represent reality than to establish reality, rejects any emphasis and any dramatic sensation or satirical intention in a work of art. They are authentic creations, separate from the abstract and from what could be contemptuously described as illustrative. The supposedly realistic pictorial designs are not simple representations of a depictable reality, but always reconstructions that transcend mere experience. I try to represent the found or invented motif in such a way that as an artist I give the viewer the feeling of encountering a new reality that has more weight than just an image.Read More Featured Artist – Anton Hoeger
I LIKE TO NOTICE THINGS: patterns of cracks on the street, colors of sprinkles scattered across the white icing on a doughnut, the texture of peeling bark. I try to use my brush to capture the tension between patterns, colors, and textures.If I am successful, those who view my work will feel the same joy I feel when creating it. As a self taught artist I have spent over 20 years exploring painting and wood sculpting. My work is abstract featuring bright colors, unusual geometric shapes, and various textures.Read More Featured Artist – Robert Frankel
