Iamiaa Ameen

 

Illustrator Iamiaa Ameen has a fun, loose drawing style with which to convey the deep feelings she favors. But I’d say that her artistic style very much includes the palettes she chooses and the way she mixes colors. It takes her art and all of that emotion to the next level.

Haylee Ebersole

 

I’m really excited to share the work of Pittsburgh-based artist Haylee Ebersole with you because she uses an unusual material – dehydrated gelatin. Four years ago she bought 100 pounds of the stuff, learned about its chemistry, and has been using that same quantity to create her sculptures over and over again. Different additives create different textures.

Naomi Vona

 

An Italian artist working in London, Naomi Vona‘s work combines the things she’s drawn towards – photography, collage, and video art. Her latest creations are collages featuring vintage found vinyl covers, photos, and postcards. Vona creates an interpretation of the originals by using pens, paper, colored tape, and stickers to create a new life.

The Mattress Factory

Vanessa German, sometimes. we. cannot. be. with. our. bodies., 2017

This past weekend I visited the Mattress Factory here in Pittsburgh for the first time in years. The non-traditional museum was founded in 1977 in an old mattress factory by artists to support artists, working in residence to create site-specific installations. Since then the museum has presented and commissioned new installation and performance works by more than 750 artists, and grown to take up three buildings in the city’s Mexican War Streets neighborhood. The museum supports established and emerging artists through a residency program that provides leadership, guidance, resources, and opportunities to create artwork that is unconventional, challenging and thought-provoking. The flexibility and inventiveness offered allows artists to respond to developments in technology, explore audience interaction, and challenge traditional artistic ideals and practices.

Through the creation of interactive, performative, and multi-sensorial environments, he considers the boundaries of becoming and our relationship with technology.

Doucement

 

Doucement is an independent textile art and design studio helmed by Monica Hofstadter. The textile objects she creates from natural fibers and radiant plastics blur the line between minimalist art and over the top creature comforts. Each piece is inspired by the love of being home, creating serene moments for the senses, and the magic and spirituality of the tangible world.

Cj Hendry / Complimentary Colors

 

Just some artfully smeared blobs of paint, right? Wrong. (Of course.) Cj Hendry‘s Complimentary Colors are actually a collection of hyperrealistic colored pencil drawings. Layer upon layer mimics the sheen of oil paint for the series commissioned by Christian Louboutin for Art Basel Hong Kong. What surprised me most, after the unexpected medium reveal, is how Cj was able to achieve such a consistency in color throughout each piece.
