Jason Bryant Brooklyn, NY bryantpaintings.com @Jasonbbryant A photo, a fingerprint, a signature, and DNA are all methods we use to identify a person, but they are just a means to match a name or face to an individual, not to describe who they are or to translate their identity.

Artistically, I task myself with finding a new genre of visual expression that is representative of the contemporary Asian geopolitical psyche without the influence of Western stereotypes.The two main strands of my work include taking the imagery of traditional Asian tropes and questioning it on the canvas in a humorous or insouciant way through physical manipulation of paint. The second strand involves extensive research comparing contemporary popular images relating to classical Asian culture and classical Chinese paintings. I believe classical Chinese culture and art are formed with a particular state of consciousness that brings us a unique aesthetic experience that in its essence is also a philosophical state of being.I attempt to use the re-presentations of the classical sensibility to create images that generate a moment of absorption in which we can reflect on our shared state of being. This image is dualistic and reciprocal in nature, the lineage and the state of the image are constant and eternal, but as the receiver of the image, the audience is constantly changing and reflective. Within these dualistic relationships, we reflect upon our state of being.Read More Featured Artist | Xuanlin Ye
Roggenbuck’s art deals with the disconnection women can experience to their bodies by complying with standards of beauty and acceptability that are imposed upon them in western culture. These standards are determined by the dominant culture and problematize bodies that don’t satisfy these standards. This failure to satisfy these standards are then remedied with modifications to the body. These modifications come in the form of consumer products that require time as well as money to execute.Read More Featured Artist | Lisa Roggenbuck

As an oil painter, I focus my attention on the humble everyday objects that we can so easily overlook. I attempt to shed light upon the beauty of the food in our kitchen, the quiet flowers in a vase, and the charming reflections of a simple teapot. I also have an affectionate draw to the humorous and the whimsical. This theme can be seen scattered across my portfolio; cheeky rubber duckies, goldfish in light bulbs and anthropomorphized inanimate objects combined with smooth gradients that play with light and shadow create for a more interesting and fun piece of work. I normally don’t have a solid intention with my works, preferring to display things as they are, but in a different light. I do hope, however, that the simple fusion of humble beauty, tactile softness, and bright energy of these simple objects can bring a smile to someone’s day.Read More Featured Artist | Lauren Pretorius
