Gemma Di Grazia (@gemmadigrazia)
My representational paintings are a celebration of color, light and form. The compositions exhibit formal aesthetic elements, and using soft pastels, I use a luminous and vibrant color palette that transform the formal foundation into an exciting and dynamic rendering. The work seeks to evoke the life-affirming beauty inherent in the natural world, and reveal what is extraordinary in the familiar. Ultimately, it’s not the subject matter that interests me, it's the tone, the gesture, color, light, scale and composition, that continue to absorb and inspire.

My name is Elizabeth Selby and I am from southern Alabama and currently work and reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I have been painting most of my life and am primarily self-taught. In the recent past I have begun painting with oil colors, after taking classes taught by painter Brett Andrus. My paintings are typically large scale works of portraiture inspired by dreams, idealism, and the playfulness of girlhood. Painting partly for aesthetic reasons, partly for emotional ties to the past; remembering a moment either had or dreamt of, or maybe read in a book. Utilizing elements from my childhood that don’t ask questions, rather just bring feelings, my wor

Often inspired by photography found on the internet, she strikes a cord with the strangers she depicts; her figures connecting with the viewer through a combination of confidence and vulnerability.

Maryam Gohar (@maryamgohar)
I am Maryam Gohar (a pseudo name I have made up of my real name “Maryam” and my Grandma’s “Gohar” (means gem) who was the very first unorthodox feminist I knew). I am a female artist currently residing in Iran. For many years I have been working as a children's book illustrator while having this more feminine and sensual part of my artistic-self hidden from the world. Being a woman artist in Iran and the nature of my works combined, made it harder to work in larger scales and I started with sketchbook pieces first. This enabled me to work on subjects near to my heart with less fear of exposure.

Francien Krieg (@francienkrieg)
Krieg paints older women as beautifully complete nudes. She acknowledges the marks time has made upon the physical body and focuses our attention to a place where physical and spiritual beauty intersect. Imagining a world in which societal pressures lift and current narratives around physicality and the female body broaden. When viewing Francien’s nudes it is hard not to feel moved by their unflinching realism and stark depiction of female beauty.
Krieg’s personal vision is consistent and committed. She expresses herself through her art in ways that give her a unique point of view on the human condition.”

My current work depicts moments and tattered landmarks from my commutes on subways in New York City using oil on canvas. By depicting elements that have weathered and decayed, at times with the figures that live amongst them, I strive to express the vulnerability and resilience that coexist in people and objects.
