My body of work is a visual journal, some accounts are pivotal others are simple. I work to present this personal subject matter with economy of action and integrity of personal expression. I enjoy searching for the moment in a painting when the least amount of detail meets the truth of my subject. It’s this truth and simplicity that allow the viewer to connect, ultimately relating my work with their own experiences.

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.

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. .

Kathleen Carr (@carrfineart)
Kathleen is an award winning contemporary representational artist. Her narrative paintings are radiant with feminine beauty; capturing the soulful expressions of her sitters and revealing their inner world. The viewer is also drawn into a narrative through stunning details such as the convincing rendering of birds, flowers, translucent and lace fabrics and damask patterns. The artist seeks to create work with a timeless aesthetic yet thoroughly contemporary.
I’m a self-taught contemporary, realist portrait artist. My mediums of choice are colored pencil, graphite, and charcoal. Even though my drawings feature my friends and family members they ultimately tell the story of me.
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.
