• Max Avdeev
    Where we live, how we live, what we do, what we believe in—these things become who we are. With an eye for scale, a chandler’s sense of shadow and color, and a winter-fire’s warmth, Max Avdeev captures us—his photographs are humanity: look upon our passion, look upon our struggle, look upon what we have wrought, and feel kinship, feel pride; feel wonder and feel understanding.

  • Hazel Lee Santino
    Intellect and emotion make humanity make Hazel Lee Santino’s works—irony, wry humor, thought made corporeal, or at least, semi-corporeal, the intersection of madness and genius, of mankind evolved and mankind of nature…it all feels terribly rich, paint heavy, shadow and spotlight strong, seeming vertiginously heightened, existing on some plane above the balance of its elements.

  • Kris Van de Vijver
    Like a string of smooth notes, black-polished shoes clicking staccato, élan and attitude; every one of Kris Van de Vijver’s photographs vibrates with a singular, signature feeling, simultaneously clear and mysterious like in the old noirs, style ratcheted addictively high.

  • Sam Vanallemeersch
    Two in one—dual visions, one of reality upon reality, wavy mental world collapsing on the physical, possibility becoming fact at the speed of thought, daft color swirling like the sounds at Symphony Hall, lines blurred bacchanalian and just steady enough for the sake of definition; one eschewing all that wonderful galloping madness to cut slickly digital, screen-ready colors poppy, well-defined polygons singing euphonically like well-practiced throats. Sam Vanallemeersch’s got one for each eye. Fantastic.

  • Nina Ahn
    Nature and our nature, soft light falling on her subjects like snow or the easy happiness of true romance, setting framed just so, but completely without remove—Nina Ahn’s work possesses a floating sort of precision; her complementary colors and analogous colors pierced by deep blacks and warm light making flickering human soul pop out of every photograph, singing at all the souls that take the time to look.

  • Natalie Foss
    Frosty primary colors as conductive as salt water, articulate faces and forms emoting brightly, Natalie Foss’ works, softly sharp and full of subtle complexities, feel refreshingly connective, straight channels for pure emotion.

  • Gabriella Rouiller
    Heat and color all brightly haute, like candied hot peppers swimming in cold champagne, Gabriella Rouiller’s photographs sizzle sharply, compositions salt-spray slick, bombastic color making natty bodies pop, bright light quality feeling festive and making you wish you were in the frame.

  • Marcus Butt
    Bold color, simple shapes and shadows twisting to clever complexities—Marcus Butt’s work, with its sliding sense of scale and icon-ready composition, feels highly narrative and storybook immersive.

  • Davis Ayer
    Multifarious tableaus feverish, hot color steaming like jungle air, bodies slack, relaxed—Davis Ayer’s works, diaphanous, feel full of atavistic reminisces rising like ghosts, transmitted through symbolist nymphs amid state of nature scenes…it’s a little magical, a little bit higher-plane, very cool.

  • Hossam Dirar

    Hossam Dirar paints incredible impressionistic pieces. His strokes are smooth, the control impeccable, and the result inspiring.
