Casey Weldon / Catharsis

 

Cats are liquid. Cats rule the world. Cats own the internet. Brooklyn-based artist Casey Weldon took on cat culture and its ever-rising popularity with his Catharsis series of paintings. By falling back on iconography of popular culture his works awaken nostalgia, humor, and the past.

Jared Small

 

Jared Small has always been captivated by the decaying homes and rundown neighborhoods of the Southeast United States. Despite socioeconomic shifts and exterior facelifts, their bones remain the same.

The center of each painting focuses on a painstakingly accurate image of a house or individual while the background dissolves into abstract elements that devise an emotional and dramatic interpretation of the subject. This technique allows Small to hypnotize the viewer into a dream-like state, caught between the realities of the obvious image and the possible mysteries that lay beneath the surface.

Vanessa Smith

 

Vanessa Smith‘s work definitely swings towards to the eerie end of the spectrum, and I love that. The way she combines her own paintings with elements of photography feels fresh and unexpected, full of life but also voyeuristic.

The interiors in Smith’s paintings bring together the mysterious and the mundane, whether it be a deserted cafe or dimly-lit living room, these spaces are imbued with an eerie tension. Devoid of people, there are suggestions of life or habitation – a smoking cigarette, a glowing light, a door left ajar – all hint at a fractured narrative.

Caroline Popham

 

Caroline Popham‘s paintings and collages act as a visual diary of sorts. Human habits, routines, and observations are denoted using abstract forms, gradations, and sequential rhythms while color translates mood and action. Popham is also a skilled graphic designer.

Ian Davenport

 

I’ve become increasingly fascinated by the effects of gravity on paint, in other words when an artist relies on the qualities of the medium and natural forces more than anything else in their creative process. Ian Davenport is a talented artist who flips and rotates his oversized works to achieve the desired result, whether that be streams of dripping and puddling paint or what appear to be perfectly shaped circles.

Anne Siems

 

The paintings and illustrations of Anne Siems feel like a big dose of ephemeral power laced with magic. I love the strange characters she creates even more when paired with an animal or three, while their delicate facial features leave you wondering what thoughts might be going through their minds.
