Rebecca Chitticks

 

These are some seriously flattering portraits! Rebecca Chitticks has a gift for painting away the imperfections that no one needs to see, while keeping the things that might be considered charming, like freckles. Each subject feels intimately familiar all while inviting the viewer to delve deeper.

Jessica Waterman

 

Jessica Waterman‘s wood and textile pieces make me want to visit Labrador and Newfoundland immediately! From colorful row houses to nature’s wilderness, inspiration comes from the surrounding areas, woods and textiles chosen because they reflect the land’s character. There’s no denying the beauty of the carpentry and art creations coming out of Jessica’s studio where she combines her carpentry skills with a costume design degree.

Alejandra Atarés

 

Barcelona-based artist Alejandra Atarés paints gardens and portraits full of color and life. I like to imagine just what these women’s expressions are as they gaze at the brilliant landscapes of her creation.

Jenny Holzer / Inflammatory Essays

 

Jenny Holzer‘s Inflammatory Essays installation was love at first sight. It consists of 24 short texts, each one hundred words long, arranged in twenty lines printed in Times Roman Bold Italic, each sheet measuring 17 x 17-inches. When first shown (1979-82), Holzer pasted them throughout the streets of Manhattan, choosing each location by subject matter and printing each in a different color for viewers to be able to tell the difference in messages. They were recently shown together as a group at Oracle in Berlin, Germany.

Alphacrete

 

Seletti is forever full of surprising, satiating designs – like Alphacrete. Concrete and glass are used to form the letters of the alphabet, brightening living spaces while also sending a message. Use the letters on their own or create words, these guys are designed for both indoor and outdoor use and can either be hung or stand upright.
