Nina Mattila / Finland
As an visual artist and a photographer the work presented is emotional and touching, but still everyday things. The stories and emotions one feels in the artwork depends on the mindset of the viewer. Someone finds a piece of their childhood, others may see glimpse of present.

Joan Marie Kelly / Singapore
Joan Kelly paints portraits of the dispossessed of the new economic order of globalization. Sex workers, blue collar migrants, the mutilated from China’s factories: neoliberalism’s losers stare at the viewer. Kelly operates in zones of contact, places where competing narratives of power compete, where silences speak to unwritten histories.

Kirstin L. Bruner
Kirstin L. Bruner focuses on an exploration of language, bringing words to life on canvas through geometric abstract painting, in essence defining words through art.
Sculptor & designer working in a variety of materials specific to each artwork and site; including steel, natural stone, composite stone, wood, and glass.
My work is a cumulative process made of my life experiences and my desire to sculpt the human form. I can see in each of my pieces the evolution of learning and the discovery that takes place when I develop the soul and likeness of my subject. The finished piece hopefully reveals my thoughtful study of the subject and the energy of the creative process.
M. M. Dupay
Collages that explore desire, gender, and the in-between spaces of being the other.
A painting with heart should come from the gut, expose a piece of the artist in a very raw way.
I am guided by feeling, not a specific image in my head.
My works are expressions of the human condition, all of its emotional crags and crevices, what we want others to see and what we hide…who we are when we are alone.

Artist and abstract painter she has a sampling of her mixed media paintings and exotic collages exhibited on her website.
Like the vanishing Great Plains, my aesthetics lend to simple forms in conjunction with an agitated surface, the rhythm of difference and repetition, and a subtle tension from integrating structure with the unplanned.
Embedding archetypal symbols and fragments of image and text in multiple layers of texture and meaning, Krause work includes large scale mixed media pieces, artist books and book-like objects that bridge between these two forms.

With her captivating images of everyday objects like glass, fabric and metal, Wilda Gerideau-Squires elevates her raw material from its conventional context, strips it of its associations and turns it into a pure visual dialogue between textures, forms and light. Using both film and digital photography, she explores the essence of her objects and creates pictures that are powerful due to their themes of visual contrast, especially the interplay of light upon fabric of varying thicknesses and colors.
