Raku-Cat by Sally Aldrich

Working in two spontaneous, wet media – watercolor and clay – and most recently in acrylics, I like to search for the essence of things, whether it is in an animal or landscape. With watercolor, I soak 300lb Arches paper with water, letting the color speak to me as abstract shapes take form. Often a landscape emerges or a simple rock form, which I hint at definition with a few lies with the brush, stripping away non-essentials, expressing the simple beauty I find in a bold way.

When I work in clay or paint, I try and feel the gesture of the form, drawing or shaping it without excess. When I struggle with it, it loses life. When I allow it, the piece speaks to me, and intuitively I see a fresh design more exciting than one planned in advance. Bouncing ideas off each other in these different media in a playful way becomes an interplay revealing the landscape of my mind.

Sascha Mallon

Installation (Ceramic and Wallpainting), Sculpture, Drawing

Sascha Mallon headshot.jpg
Sascha Mallon The Test of Time.jpg
Sascha Mallon Temporary Constellations.j

I make ceramic sculptures representing female figures, plants, and animals and group them mostly on the wall in site-specific installations and freestanding sculptures combined with Wallpainting. My work is predominantly about the cycle of life, and within that context my sculptures serve as pictograms, carriers of hidden messages, and memento mori. I create dreamlike worlds whose narratives illustrate relationships, transitions, and dichotomies such as life/death. My approach to making work is intuitive and spontaneous, and my inspiration comes from the world around me as well as from my thoughts and memories.

Kingfisher #3 by SG Schuman.jpg

I am a graduate of SUNY Purchase, School of Visual Art / BFA.

Although I have a few different visions, they all have one thing in common; they are inspired by the natural world, ancient cultures, and landscape.  Sometimes I will work more gesturally, and other times, more direct.  

I spend a lot of time outdoors, and some of my views are a culmination of what I see, along with my memories.  I also devise works that arrange shapes and silhouettes.

Oswego Sunset by Shelley Dell.jpg
Equinox by Shelley Dell.jpg

I make images with watercolors and colored pencils on paper. Catching moments of beauty, observing sunlight as it changes and passes through and around objects is a fascinating thing to observe and try to catch on paper. I graduated from NYU with a degree in studio art. Studies include classes at The Art Students League, and The School of Visual Arts. My current projects integrate classic painting and drawing techniques with the digital world.

Recently I have finished a year long series titled “Analemma” about the angle of the sun and my visual relationship with the path of the light. This year long series of paintings of sunsets, sunrise, midday landscapes tracked the sun and the weather in for 2020, paring away the politics and covid -19 to remember that the earth is still going around the sun and that we are a very small part of eternity.
Capturing a second of magic in quotidian subjects is what my best paintings attempt to share.

Shira Toren

Cactus-SML-36x36 by Shira Toren.jpg

Shira Toren is an American-Israeli artist. Born in Tel-Aviv, She received her BFA from the Pratt Institute and currently working in Brooklyn NY,

My work is to make unconscious emotion visceral. I implement a process-oriented approach in my practice, which uncovers the works' themes as much as establishes them. I apply Venetian plaster, graphite powder and mineral pigments, accumulating these materials to achieve a nuanced sense of texture. Layers of material converge in abstract monochrome forms, creating a liminal space where pigments build and collapse. The various built surfaces in my work seemingly excavate elusive memories and their very nature. The final compositions embody this subtle conflict: a latent tension lingering between presence and absence, the rigid and the malleable.

In the the field of “Environmental Art”, I’ve kept on installing installations of the photos of flowers, for people all over the world who have suffered diverse catastrophe. I’d like to continue to do this art project as one of my life’s works to “pray” whenever “COVID-19” has been settled.

Within the human subconscious mind lies a world of experiences; a wealth of memories and connections that are built layer upon layer. It is my personal journey to rediscover the spiritual dialogue between the mind, body, soul, and actions. I render these ideas that have been ignited by my curiosity and inspirational quotations, into visual images. These images are woven and encapsulated with the essence of line and of beauty.

Twist a bronze sculpture by Sondra Gold
#43 a steel sculpture by Sondra Gold

When I first saw the sculptures of Brancusi at MOMA I was captured by his total comprehension of the subject and being able to relay it using the simplest form. Since then finding the essence of the subject has engaged me.

I am also interested in dance and many of my sculptures grow out of dance motions. I abstract the body, leaving the motion. 

The advantage of bronze is its ability to hold the weight of a piece on a small footing and its long lasting beauty. With bronze you can make shapes that start as sharp and become round, a straight line can curve and solids can turn into negatives. I can decide the outcome.

I also work in steel sheets and here the material dictates what I can do. I have at times limited myself to only using triangles. Two triangles are welded together and then I add others until the shape of the sculpture is completed. The decision on the finish, color or rust comes next.

Attention is paid to the way the positive and negative spaces slide into each other and change places as the piece is turned. The shadows it casts become part of the sculpture.

Stacie Flint

Oil and Acrylic Paintings and Commissioned Portraits on Canvas

Smell of Roses by Stacie Flint.jpg

What is most notable about my oil or acrylic paintings and portraits is the vibrant color and energy. I use imagery of people, places and objects from life and imagination and reinvent them through the creative process alive in me as 
a joyful expressionism. The mood may be quirky, laugh-out-loud funny, or harmonious. I want to contribute to upliftment in the world, and I call it Love Through Art.

My work pushes to be a catalyst for discussion around Social, Political, and Environmental themes. I create using ‘theatrical’ visuals that invite the viewer in. Because of the almost Carnival feel of my work, people feel free to explore and respond. Opening minds, creating new questions, or leaving the viewer with something to ponder is the goal. I celebrate us, and our absurdity. We are beautiful, horrid, tragic, and profoundly funny.

No Strings Attached by Susan Lisbin
The Unfolding by Susan Lisbin

Profoundly hard of hearing since age two, I have spent a lot of time silently observing others and my relationship to them. Discovering abstract expressionism at twenty seven freed me as an artist. I found an intuitive process that made incredible sense to me and helped me develop my own artistic vocabulary. By exploring tension, sexuality and humor in my art, I illustrate how people interact, flee from confinement, or stand their own ground. Each piece becomes a unique scenario to discover juxtapositions and identity in this world we all share.

Susan Sinek

Mixed Materials, Acrylic, Charcoal, Ink, Graphite and Crayon


I was born in London, UK where I studied art at Twickenham Art School and fashion design at Chiswick University. I attended Hong Kong University Art Faculty, where I studied fine art, Chinese brush painting and photography.

I create feeling and expression with the use of line, that is the essence of my work. Painting, drawing the female figure transforms the figure by using beautiful and sensitive lines with bold black or coloured passages. The balance between space and figure reflect my study and appreciation of Asian art. Energy and vitality, allow the figure to emerge from the space.

Flow and Filtration by Suzy Sureck
Mourning Ritual by Suzy Sureck

Suzy Sureck is a multi-media artist whose sculptural installations, videos and drawings involve physical and metaphoric qualities of wind, water, light, shadow, and the poetics of luminosity. Fluidly cross-pollinating disciplines, she merges technology and traditional media. Working in an expanded field of experiential interaction, she draws with light through projection and spatial layering. Merging aerial views of rivers, branching systems of the human body, bee colonies or microscopic images of plant cells, her works applaud the interdependence of our diversity, earth’s inherent complexities and cycles, and acknowledges the increased vulnerability of our planet and ourselves.
