    Chrity Lee better known as CHRISTYBOMB - Installation Artist
    Installation Artist
    Biography : I am Christy Lee, better known as Christybomb, a visual artist based out of New York City and Charleston, WV. The "Christybomb" moniker was given to me by friends because of the energy and vivaciousness embodied within my art. I was born in Louisville, Kentucky and graduated from the University of North Florida with a bachelor's degree in biology and a minor in public health. In spite of my research biologist training, I ultimately came to the realization that creating art could be more than a hobby. Exhibition : TBA. Giggle Gallery at FAO Schwartz NYC.

  • Maja Bosen

    Maja Bosen

    Maja Bosen - Mixed Media Artist
    Mixed Media Artist
    Biography : Maja Bosen, artist, dreamer, walking poet whose present encaustic work weaves wax, pigment and various materials – both manmade and of nature – into potential moments of reflection and a shared intimacy with nature and time’s passage. “Observing the interconnectivity of nature and humanity, I attempt to create an intimate space to reflect upon our shared cycles – the rise, fall, ebb, flow, evolution, fruition and ultimate dissipation. These quiet moments of grace are a celebration of what is, was and remains but is not yet gone. This journey influences my drawings, paintings and sculptures.” As well as having received her BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago, Maja has pursued studies at Parson’s School of Design, the NewSchool for Social Research in NYC and the San Francisco Art Institute. She has explored many artistic channels in an attempt to find one that most clearly resonates with the message at hand. Maja has exhibited and performed in Chicago, San Francisco and New York in both solo and with group exhibitions at various times throughout her creative career. At this time, she is proud to call the Zhou B Arts Center in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood, home.

    Detailed Description : Claudia Caffarena, artista peruana, desde sus comienzos hasta la actualidad en el contexto de las artes visuales ha seguido una línea estética y conceptual basada en la exploración de la cerámica; producción muy personal e íntima que reflexiona en torno a la identidad, al pasado y presente, a la tradición y a su historia. Su mirada, desde la contemporaneidad, nos traslada hacia un mundo antropológico y mágico-religioso, es un nuevo imaginario construido para dialogar y hablar sobre el ser latino, lo que somos y nos hace únicos y diferentes. Su obra es toda una producción visual que presenta su sello muy personal que la hace inconfundible en el contexto del arte peruano, su modo de trabajar, de colocar cada pieza y elemento en el lugar que le corresponde y el empleo de una iconografía típica del continente latinoamericano adaptada a sus necesidades creativas. Entonces, apreciamos como grandes paredes se convierten en su lienzo en blanco, un espacio en el que Caffarena interviene, cuenta una historia y genera un rico intercambio con el espectador. Son enunciaciones de nuestras raíces que nos marcan como diferentes y que constituyen una prueba fehaciente de una nación capaz de tener voz propia a través del arte.
  • Lori Cuisinier

    Lori Cuisinier

    Lori Cuisinier - Interdisciplinary Artist
    Interdisciplinary Artist
    Biography : Lori Cuisinier was born in Dayton, Ohio and has been a longtime New York City resident. As the daughter of an Air Force officer, she grew up in Albuquerque NM, Cape Canaveral FL, San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA and Boston, MA. Cuisinier emigrated to Canada with her family and received a B.A. Honors Visual Arts from the University of Ottawa. Following her return to the United States, she participated in the Hunter College Master’s Degree program and received her Juris Doctor from The City University of New York at Queens College. While working a full-time “day-job” as an attorney, her art evolved from painting and drawing to include photography and multimedia installation. She is known for her large-scale imagery where her body serves subject/object/still life. From the perspective of the female gaze, Cuisinier channels historical and mythological female archetypes while she confronts the viewer’s conceptions and preconceptions of female strength and vulnerability. Cuisinier’s photographs and installations have been exhibited in New York, Miami, France and Italy. Detailed Description : Multidisciplinary Artist

She grew up in the city and north suburbs of Chicago and now lives in Chicago. Sally attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art. Sally works in a variety of styles and media but is especially known for her style of pouring and manipulating paint to create the loose, yet controlled sensation of her paintings. The organic patterns and appearance of this variety of her paintings reflect not only the actual theme or content of the particular painting in which they appear but also the mental process that gives life to the work. Sally’s work is widely appreciated and can be found in the personal collections of a variety of clients that includes everyone from teachers to producers, executives to restaurateurs and several prominent national and international names. Her works have been featured in various magazines and have been displayed in organized shows, art fairs, corporate spaces, hotels, fashionable restaurants, galleries and international museums.

    Diana Leviton Gondek - Visual /Mixed Media Artist
    Visual /Mixed Media Artist
    Biography : Diana lives and works in Chicago, IL Detailed Description : Artist Statement: Art is created in stories. Stories are created in art. My paintings have their foundations in stories of my life told in bold, engaging one act plays. They draw the audience in and holds them in the theatre of canvas. How each tale is received and meaning conveyed is left to those experiencing my work. Years of water color influence have welcomed new freedoms created by the addition of thin layers of oil - as all of our life stories are ingrained with many layers. Original. Individual. Unique. Our past and where we may go.
  • Faun Manne

    Faun Manne

    Faun Manne - Mixed Media Artist
    Mixed Media Artist
    Biography : Faun's work over the last several years has focused on exploring figurative narrative while utilizing mixed media in order to create texture in painting and drawing. Color and form translate content, thereby revealing the multiple facets of female identity in the context of the sacred and the secular. While some work is a commentary on the experience of memory, social relationships, sexuality and fantasy, other work focuses on the nature of the deity, culture and mythology. Experimenting with the application of paint, ink, charcoal, crayons, poster markers, fabric, antique papers, fiberglass, acrylic , oil and collage, Faun engages in a visceral and tactile relationship by using medium to communicate her deepest feelings. One could say Faun speaks through her work by auto-biographically sharing her “story”. Faun's goal is that through sharing, her audience will recognize the common thread that unites us all.

  • Rashelle Roos

    Rashelle Roos

    Rashelle Roos - Painter/Mixed Media Artist
    Painter/Mixed Media Artist
    Biography : Rashelle Roos received her BFA in Painting from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her MFA in Painting from the University of Illinois. She also studied at Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey, while teaching art at Copadam Atolyesi. She then got her MA in Middle Eastern Studies while doing research for her thesis on Middle Eastern contemporary art in the United Arab Emirates. She received 8 fellowships, 6 artist and travel grants, and 3 international artist residency awards. Roos has taught art in various capacities, from the university level to elementary schools. Roos then went on to earn an MAC in Art Therapy, and served as an art therapist for adults with chronic mental illness and youths in juvenile services. She has participated in over 50 exhibits, nationally and internationally. Recently, she received Tony Karman’s Juror’s Pick award at Art for Life Chicago. Rashelle’s studio is in Miller Beach, IN, overlooking Lake Michigan, where she gains much inspiration. She also loves to make art while traveling to various locations, especially Palm Springs, CA in the winters. Detailed Description : Statement: The RHYTHMS series is made up of expressionistic brushwork and colors found in nature. They are created through ecotherapy in the great outdoors. I am happiest when I can paint barefoot in the grass. I strive for purity in creativity. I take risks with wild brush strokes. Sometimes the process, when left to chance in a stroke, splatter or drip, determine the uniqueness, character and beauty of a painting. I relish the risky moments of flying paint because it reminds me of what it is to be human and part of nature. It is within the flow of authenticity, that character (and original art) surfaces. We are literally biologically dependent upon nature. Healing energy is in the sun, the wind, the rain, the cycles… I strive to stay connected to nature and capture an interpretation of nature (both subject matter and process) through this work.
  • Galina Shevchenko

    Galina Shevchenko

    Galina Shevchenko - Multimedia, video, installation artist
    Multimedia, video, installation artist
    Biography : I am a Moscow born, Chicago based multimedia artist. My practice encompasses multiple modes of expression and image processing: I am experimenting with precision of digital fabrication, visceral materiality of printmaking and fiber production, drawing, animation and video matter. My work is preoccupied with creating and processing the image of a body: body in its beautiful disobedience. I am interested in its multiple iterations: as a vulnerable, magnificent life giving entity, body in transition, androgynous, animal body, non-human/post human body. A grotesque body of a Monster >> Mother/Other: distorted, powerful, vulnerable, loving and procreating. My work has been shown at numerous venues nationally and internationally, including international Art Fairs in Miami and Chicago, Berlin’s Director’s Lounge Video Festival, New York’s Red Shift Film Festival, Chicago’s Motion Graphics Festival, Media ART LAB segment of Moscow International Film Festival, where my work took a second Prize in 2007; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Art Institute of Chicago and numerous Chicago Art galleries.

    Rachael Zur - Mixed Media/Installation Artist
    Mixed Media/Installation Artist
    Detailed Description : Statement: Texture becomes a way of communicating touch—my own touch held in my work, and what my viewer imagines feeling with their own hand. By not concealing my touch, I invite my viewer to be close with my thinking and process. Conflating an assortment of materials, those materials become less recognizable as their former selves, and new relationships are forged between disparate items. Bright colors convey a sense of optimism; after all, these are paintings that have been torn apart then stitched or plastered back together. Taking forms that seem to have order—a grid, a number, a hand, or a room—I deliberately lose accuracy and allow for imagination to run rampant. Negative space in my work is created not just through how I apply paint, but by cutting away at the work, resulting in paintings that have irregular sculptural qualities. I make images that have a logic that can only be held in painting, in pursuit of depicting wordless ideas and adding to the visual vocabulary of an ancient art practice.
