Andie Dinkin


Andie Dinkin‘s paintings and illustrations sit firmly on the line between traditional and modern in her very own distinctive style. The faces with shallow features and little detail, the garments that are difficult to assign a time period to, the color palettes that make you study each piece rather than simply view it. My favorites are the crowded scenes, a sort of Where’s Waldo on a considerably elevated scale.








Ian Palmer


After years working as a graphic designer, Ian Palmer turned his attention towards being an artist. Precipitated by his family moving from England to a 200 year old barn in southwest France, Palmer found himself surrounded by beautiful mountain and countryside views full of inspiration. I really like his ability to layer colors and when he uses a heavy hand with trowels and drips.








Alessandra Genualdo


I’m having a moment with the work of Italian-born, London-based painter and illustrator Alessandra Genualdo. Each piece feels so very melancholy and introspective, even when filled with bright saturated colors. As you’ve probably noticed by now the time of year drastically affects the kind of art I’m drawn to, and Alessandra’s work feels perfectly suited to how I spend Januarys.

Mark Thompson


Mark Thompson‘s grayscale paintings feel exactly like January. It’s been frigid and full of snow in many parts of the U.S., making everything feel washed-out and salt covered. Thompson says of his paintings that they are works of memory, not of any one time or place but a world distilled.








Andy Welland


British artist and art director Andy Welland creates painted collages rooted in contemporary fine art and commercial graphic design. Welland explores shape and form, familiar motifs, and cultural totems while blurring the line between handmade and digital.

Andrew Myers


These incredible paint and torn paper creations by Andrew Myers have me straight up mesmerized. They also have me thinking I really, really wish I’d thought of that! So I guess what I’m really saying is that I’m completely inspired, which is what most art aspires to do at the end of the day. (A+++)








Kirstin Lamb


Kirstin Lamb collects skulls, taxidermy, ribbons, fabric, vintage photographs, and paper ephemera, then organizes it into staged settings to capture in paintings both large and small. I love these miniature worlds Lamb creates with inspiration flying at her from every direction. Have a look at her artist statement to get a better understanding of her vision.

Carlo Cane


At first look Carlo Cane‘s paintings resemble destruction happening mid-tornado, but what he’s creating is vastly more cerebral. As a lover of nature, evolution, and Darwin, Cane opposes humanity overtaking the environment. His art puts forth undefined spaces where lush vegetation and nature attempt to repossess their lost spaces.






Christina Graham / Ridgewood Reflections


Christina Graham‘s paintings are intriguing, and her Ridgewood Reflections site-specific installation in a DIY space in Queens, New York this past summer is both bright and curious.

The walls and molding are Agnes Martin variations on white paint, caked on from years of layering, a radiator, mirrored closet doors. Everything in the room has character — a sort of proud outer-borough minimalism.

It seemed important to respond directly to the space and not pretend it’s a white cube. I used the windows, doors and radiators as armatures, but let textures from my day-to-day seep in. The mirror and concrete sculptures are supporting acts for the paintings, a way to see the room from unexpected vantage points.
