These modular art pieces from Bend have been along for a bit now, but every time I come across them I’m reminded just how much potential they have! The metal wire pieces are sold as sets of two in both straight and curved formations as well as in various colors. Designing and creating your own personalized wall sculpture has never seemed so closely within reach!

Kyle Skor is an American artist and children’s book author/illustrator. He grew up playing in the prairie snows and forests of the upper midwest, which nurtured in him the spirit of the wandering mystic. At one point he went to Williams College and studied art history and psychology, and chose somewhat prematurely to enter a doctoral program at Harvard at the age of 22. As a graduate student, he spent more time skipping class to read poetry and sketch at the museums of greater Boston and Cambridge than not, an awareness of which ultimately led him to drop out of school and assume a variety of odd jobs, working by candlelight on his “soul stuff”. Between 2005 and 2013, the fruits of most of these efforts found themselves consigned to various landfills around Asia and California.

Portland-based abstract artist Megan Krzmarzick uses dramatic, bold colors and textures to get her point across and express deep and resonating emotions and energies.
Through her work, Megan explores healing and identity, the reality of time and beings in flux, and competing narratives that weave in and out of our lives shaping different forms and frames of reality. She is the author of a hand painted poetry zine “Running Away from Home,” a small press publication carried at Powell’s Books. Megan also leads creative workshops as the founder of “Humanities Dept.”

All of UK-based Little Prick‘s pieces are made by hand with pinpricks, then backlit when finished.
“I love the idea of starting with nothing except a blank piece of paper, seeing where it goes and creating something that uses nothing but the paper itself to tell the story. The portraiture pieces are a little older and were a little more pre-planned. I’m moving further and further towards the abstract patterns and forms.”
