In order to understand a thing’s relevance, we need its adverse or adjacent-other to compare it to. My paintings reside in this flux - romanticism overlapping progress - in order to understand how the photo functions as cultural memory.
In my paintings, I reappropriate traditional techniques by deconstructing current understanding and meaning to better gain new and different usages.
Echoing the printer, I use only four colors: cyan, magenta, yellow and black. The work develops in the same manner as a print, left to right. The finished product hangs like a movie screen, slightly swaying when a person walks by, disrupting its ether.

Her narrative paintings are radiant with feminine beauty; capturing the soulful expressions of her sitters and revealing their inner world.

Since her graduation from the National Academy of art in Sofia, Tanya Atanasova has worked in several different media: painting, ceramics, sculptures and installations… She grew up in an environment where different artistic disciplines were in constant interaction. But although she has been drawing and painting all her life , she has only discovered her great passion for oil painting in 2016. Inspired, after visiting the studios/taking masterclasses by some of her most favorite contemporary artists - she decided to become a full time painter. .

My paintings are emotionally-based psychological narratives where the details lie in planes of color. I choose to exaggerate color, in a sense break up a color field into its constituent colors, directing the viewer to particular areas by applying juicy bits of heavily saturated color. I strive to capture emotional states more than anything else, purposefully laying strokes down to create the illusion of an outer physical topography that houses an inner one of the soul. Though it is a cerebral concept that motivates me, the process of painting is superior to all else.
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.
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.

Alex J Dewars (@ajdewars)
Alex is a Scottish, figurative painter working almost exclusively in oil paint.
His work explores identity, hierarchies, patriotism and body politics .
The result often depicts romantic and nihilistic conclusions in a single suspended moment.
He works exclusively in oil because it ties him to 500 years of figure painting. In this rich history you can see themes which are repeated, are continuously relevant in modern civilization, and ripe for parody.
He has exhibited extensively in galleries throughout Scotland for over 10 years, including at the Royal Scottish Academy Annual Exhibition.
