Geordie Shephard

My art practice is inspired by things experimental, humorous, speculative and introspective, weaving narratives or extracted snippets into new combinations that explore the grey-zone in-between the real and the unreal, nothing and something, memory and history, and craft and art, ultimately striving for an uncanny balance of double vision. My range of influences is broad […]

Golly Peeters

My devils are as human, as humans are devilish. There is nothing unknown about one “species” to the other. Devilish in appearance, they are human in feelings, dialogues and actions.

Calvin Ma

I utilize the action figure form in my sculptural work to explore personal issues and struggles with social anxiety. As an adult, I face difficulties in the social environment. Meeting new people, being in the company of strangers, crowds, peers and intermittently among friends and family brings about a heightened nervousness that takes over and […]

Cathy Feiss

In my artwork, I am interested in expressing what I can’t express easily in words. When I was younger, I was very interested in poetry and I feel that my interest in the visual arts comes from the same source, involving the construction of a kind of visual poem. Much of my work process is […]
