Katie McCann

 

Katie McCann‘s intricately cut and pieced together collages appear to be antique, vintage, and forgotten though they’re far from it. The creatures she creates are from a childhood world of faeries, witches, science fiction, and botany living in their own unique habitat. I’d rather like to have a conversation with each of them.

Lisa Vanin

 

Lisa Vanin‘s paintings combine the natural world with a touch of the macabre, usually through the presence of a snake or a skull or three. Each piece sets a melancholy tone that leaves me wondering more about the circumstances surrounding it all. Don’t miss Vanin’s (super affordable) ceramic snakes or metal pins either.

Tin Can Forest

 

If you’re at all fascinated with the occult – whether just during the month of October or more – have a look at the work of Tin Can Forest. Canadian artists and publishers Pat Shewchuk and Marek Colek work collaboratively to create art, video installations, films, and books inspired by the the forests of Canada, Slavic art, and occult folklore. Their pieces are darkly beautiful with stories to tell.

Yu Maeda

 

Artist Yu Maeda was born in Kumamoto, Japan and now calls Southern California home. Subjects like skulls, knives, brains, and blood usually have a sinister air about them, but Maeda’s brightly colored, gape-mouthed creatures seem way too energetic and happy for any of that nonsense!

Alberto Ortega

 

Alberto Ortega‘s landscape paintings depict homes and streets where people live their everyday lives, though their presence is only hinted at through parked cars and glowing windows.

As an immigrant to the United States, I am intrigued by American suburban life as depicted in film, literature, and visual art. Through the images I create of American homes, buildings, and man-made environments, I seek to portray society and some of its contradictions. These scenes represent hopes and dreams, the threat of their failure, and alienation. I hope that my paintings set a stage that allows a drama to play out within the viewer.

Jeremy Miranda

 

Over the past few months I’ve come to the realization that much of the art I find myself drawn towards includes a crossover between reality and memory. Jeremy Miranda‘s acrylic paintings hit the sweet spot, so much so that I’m struggling to put my thoughts into words. I want to walk through the doors of these buildings, sit at the tables, and pickup a paintbrush myself.
