ALISA SHEA
@alisa_shea
alisashea.com

Alisa was always an artist.  Encouraged to be more “practical” in her choice of careers, she took a detour to study occupational therapy and public health before finally landing back to her first love: art.  Now working primarily in watercolor, she says: “I paint in watercolor because it scares me.  I love its quirky unpredictability.  I love the twinge of anxiety I feel every time I put down a color, knowing that I’ve often only got one shot to get it right.  Piggybacking on my Instagram addiction, I paint from my own photographic reference material. I typically pick my subjects based on perceived level of difficulty; if it’s something that I’m not sure I can successfully reproduce in watercolor, then that’s the one I want to paint next.  I am a control freak, and it’s this combination of subject matter and medium that make for an overachieving, perfectionist’s dream, providing just enough of a challenge to make the whole process a tension-filled whirlwind of creative excitement.”

EILEEN NOVACK

Eileen started in photography. She had an extensive darkroom in her parents’ home and spent many hours there honing her craft. She was a budding product/advertising photographer, whose first client paid her with vegetables from their garden. Eileen did eventually find additional clients who did pay in non-vegetable currency. She also participated in a group show at a New York City gallery with work involving Kodachrome slide manipulation. When a fire destroyed most of her work, she decided to pursue other career paths and spent many years in the software world. In 2012, she found renewed interest in photography and started working with digital imaging. “I have been influenced by a lifetime of being bombarded with images. Advertising has affected us all and it is certainly one of my main influences and inspirations,” she said.

ALEX FERRONE

Aerial photographer Alex Ferrone explores her environment from different (and very high) vantage points. “Photographing from a helicopter, draws me to the genuine designs within the vast landscapes over which I fly. Generally excluding representational elements from my photographs, leaves viewers little or no reference to reality, excites their imagination and interpretation, and challenges their perception of light, shape and form,” she notes. “My images disconnect viewers from present technology as they are not created within the realm of digital design manipulation. Leaving daily discord behind, the viewer is engaged to contemplate the tranquility of nature as they meditate on the forms, texture and colors within the scene. At the same time, a new awareness and appreciation for our fragile ecological systems may be created for them.”

TOM SENA

YouTube Channel

Tom Sena’s work is a combination of digital manipulation, printmaking, gesture sketching, and collage. Highly influenced by hip-hop culture, Sena works in large-scale formats as a way to “continue that ‘in-your-face’ mentality that makes hip-hop so unique and rebellious. My hope is that it can be appreciated not only by those directly involved with hip-hop, but those who can appreciate art in all formats.” His series “The (Street) Kids are Alright” captures the energy and spirit in images of today’s hip hop youth.

NAOMI GROSSMAN

Whether using wire to create drawings in space, mixed media on paper or oil paints, Naomi Grossman’s work is about self-examination. “My work brings up issues of change, loss, displacement, isolation, insecurity and the desire for connection and love,” said Grossman. “Looking in the mirror to create a self-portrait gives me a chance to really examine my face and embrace all the conflicting feelings I have of pride, love, desire, loneliness, fear, loss, and uncertainty in a constantly changing landscape of home, country and world.”

MARGARET MINARDI
@margaretminardiart
margaretminardiartist.com

Margaret Minardi’s work tells stories, approaching subjects such as infertility, Bi Polar disease and politics. After becoming allergic to oils, Minardi has made a concerted effort to make colored pencil a more acceptable medium, also using collage and acrylic as adjunct textures. According to Minardi, “A subject for a drawing might also be as simple as a fascination with a bird or animal. I start with a realistic portrait which lends itself to the story. I work in a stream of consciousness. I usually don’t know what a work is about until it unfolds in front of me.”

JEREMY CHANCE

Jeremy Chance makes paintings, predominantly by way of digital collage, imaging, and drawing. Layers of computer files are built up into developed works and are then produced. “Never simply “printed”, the process of extracting an image from a computer and rendering it into physical material is a fundamental part of the process, where noise, imperfections, and error form types of mark making in their own right,” said Chance.
