Charlotte Keates

 

London-based artist Charlotte Keates paints from inspiration gathered on a trip around the United States and Canada, as well as a mysterious set of slides indirectly acquired from a wealthy American family which documents their travels in the ’60s. Her paintings are a most welcome respite on freezing cold December days when you can project yourself right into her work – I’ll be in the jungle home!

Hilary Pecis

 

So often we take the everyday moments in life for granted, we take ourselves out of the present to think about something in the past that’s nagging or what’s to come in the future. Hilary Pecis paints these moments from her life and gives us permission to stop and think about our own.

Josie Lewis

 

Multidisciplinary artist Josie Lewis creates works that make me – and I’m guessing lots of others – insanely happy! Winding trails of graduated colored circles that travel over and under themselves on their journey, abstract moments caught forever in resin that remind me of the prettiest petri dishes, and so much more.

Sylvie Fleury

 

Cosmetic cases are small artworks unto themselves, just looking at all of those little compartments filled with saturated color leave me ready to create. But Geneva-based artist Sylvie Fleury takes them to another level by painting shaped canvases that recreate their beauty on a larger scale. When it comes down to brass tacks, an artist’s palette and a makeup artist’s tools of the trade aren’t much different.

Ewa Juszkiewicz

 

Ewa Juszkiewicz’s art lives in the space between creation and destruction. Her inspiration is drawn from female portraiture originally created between the Renaissance and the 19th century. Juszkiewicz transforms, fragments, or changes the context within these familiar portraits of the wives, mothers, and daughters of influential men. By destroying and recreating, Juszkiewicz deprives the women of their faces – essentially taking away their existence.

Dessie Jackson

 

Los Angeles-based artist Dessie Jackson rotates between using mixed media, painting, and paper to create her wildly expressive portraits. With a swoosh of paint around the eyes or a whirlwind of color around a mouth, Jackson turns the everyday into the questionably extraordinary.
