Mary Manchin

I create beautiful macabre pieces to make you rethink the past and how it is perceived. Almost all of my photos are original images from the early 1900s that I collect from estate sales and oddity shops around Los Angeles. I scans my found photos to preserve the original then photo manipulate and digitally paint them in Photoshop to make them a past you've never seen.

Njideka Akunyili Crosby

Akunyili Crosby was born in Nigeria, where she lived until the age of sixteen. In 1999 she moved to the United States, where she has remained since that time. Her cultural identity combines strong attachments to the country of her birth and to her adopted home, a hybrid identity that is reflected in her work. The artist populates her work with images of family and friends, in scenarios with details derived from everyday domestic experiences in Nigeria and America. These include recollections from the formative years of her upbringing, as well as more recent relationships and experiences. Her work often features an element of self-portrait, as in a series of intimate scenes of the artist with her husband made in the early years of their marriage.

Joanne Nam

"I was born in Korea and spent most of my childhood in the middle of a forest. Most of the subject matters of the paintings I created were from those memories in the forest. However, I avoided reproducing simple images of the memories, but I wanted to express the impression of them. The visual images of memories in my head are vague and most of times hard to tell, but the feeling of it is the thing that lasts. If you look at my painting and feel something from it, that is what I tried to convey." - Joanne Nam

Katinka Lampe

Katinka Lampe paints portraits. Or at least, you can clearly recognise the representation of a person. Yet, this is not the main motive of the painting. The portrait merely serves as reason to make the painting. The portrait is the imagery concept. Her paintings greatly appeal to the beholders.
