Caroline Kaufman‘s tactile treasures are based on found beauty and the quirkiness of small treasures, her garments are known for their experimental textiles, hand painted prints, use of color, and all around playfulness. So much personality!

Elisabeth McBrien

 

Even though it’s not officially summer until tomorrow, it feels like it’s already landed in full force. Elisabeth McBrien‘s oil paintings feel like perfectly encapsulated portraits of the season.

McBrien’s oil paintings reflect her interest in depicting the personal relationships that we share with nature, and the places that have had a part in shaping our identities. Preserving a simplicity in composition allows her to focus on the captivating interplay of light and color in her work, evoking a sense of presence and familiarity in the viewer.

Linden Eller

 

Linden Eller combines found fragments and personal elements to create floating abstract shapes sewn together with thread on paper. Themes of memory, its process, and layers of recollection are a central theme in her work, conveyed through the use of pale colors and tracing paper to create a hazy environment. Linden also communicates the melancholy in unresolved matters, like her brother’s autism, or natural losses.

Emma-Leone Palmer / Paint Play Series

 

Emma-Leone Palmer paints faces, but what she strives to capture are the deep wells of feeling and emotion that run beneath the surface of their expressions. Her latest work, the Paint Play series, uses paint, lube, glitter, and water, the mediums smeared, dripped, flicked, and splashed onto the subject’s face to trigger reactions and emotions. It’s not premeditated, rather hundreds of photos are taken and the paintings made as a result.

Lizzie Fortunato‘s Spring/Summer ’18 collection is inspired by a summer of love and full of the prettiest golden tones and statement pieces (naturally). It’s a smorgasbord of organic shapes, a 1960s vibe, and fringe – you can also get a peek of FW18 and pre-order!
