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.
Alexander Hayden (@alexanderhayden)
Alexander Hayden's work grows from a fascination with questioning human perception and how emotion can influence experience and behavior. Born in Texas in 1993, Hayden moved to New York City (where he now resides) in 2017 to pursue involvement in the thriving environment of figurative art. Hayden is self taught, preferring to approach education independently through books & the internet. His works in charcoal and oil use the figure to analyze the difficulties of managing human experience and the ambiguous and often contradictory thoughts & emotions that come with it. Alexander draws deeply on and directly from the events of his personal life as inspiration f

Lauren Bergman (@lauren_bergman)
Lauren Bergman grew up in Washington, D.C., before relocating to Manhattan to study painting and design at Parson’s School of Design and The Art Students League in New York. Bergman's work probes a loss of cultural optimism and the ongoing irresolution of such post-feminist issues as sexuality versus intellectualism, passivity and acquiescence versus ambition. The work courts irony and the inner narratives are playful, yet confront the conflicting expectations of contemporary culture and the intricately complex ways in which we form our identities.
Bergman currently lives in Manhattan and her studio is at MANA Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ.

Jodi Gerbi (@jodi1234)
I paint resilience but not always through the depiction of the figure. My oil paintings are realistic portrayals of the garbage, trash cans and drain pipes as a way to convey the idea that humans are often required to find something beautiful in a hard situation in order to keep going. The ability of a human being to do this is the essence of resilience.
