  • Holly AddiSalt Lake City, UT

    Holly Addi (b. 1973) is a Salt Lake City, Utah-based painter. Her works examine energy, space, and landscape through tempered abstraction. Holly’s paintings employ color blocked neutrals with pointed pops of color that navigate the viewer’s eye around the canvas with meandering linework. An exercise in the renegotiation of inclusion and omission, acceptance and refusal, Holly’s paintings are dynamic explorations of formal paint language and intimated environments.

  • Chloe FieldsPortland, OR

    Chloe Fields (b. 1987) is an artist and designer living in Portland, Oregon. Working primarily with soft pastel pencils on textured paper, she explores forms that feel unique yet familiar, simple but thought-provoking. She is interested in the representation of juxtapositions in her work, such as humor and restraint, minimalism and maximalism, color space and vacant space. Her experience in writing, letterpress printing, and design all inform her approach to process and composition. Her work has been noted by Sight Unseen and Man Repeller.

    Hyun Jung Ahn (b.1986) is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist, from Seoul, South Korea. Through her work, she investigates enigmatic abstract forms which she references as “shapes of mind”.

  • Kimmy QuillinBrooklyn, NY

    Kimmy Quillin (b. 1983) is a painter who draws from symbolic color and narrative in her abstractions. Her works are partially informed by her visual experience of the world unaided by corrective lenses - after she ran out of contacts in 2008, she discovered a preference for her less-than-20/20 vision of the world. This color field reality is reflected in her painting. Quillin lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

  • Kristin TexeiraBrooklyn, NY

    Kristin Texeira (b. 1988) is a Brooklyn, New York-based artist who creates painted abstractions of her interactions with both persons and places. Culled from decades of journaling and sketching, Kristin’s paintings create a lexicon of carefully crafted forms with a finely attuned sensitivity to color and surface. Kristin captures memories through map-like geometries that serve to reflect and record the world around her.

  • Karina BaniaSan Diego, CA

    Based between San Diego, California and Baja, Mexico, Karina Bania is a mixed-media painter whose works relate to landscape and geography. Karina’s paintings feature pale hues and layers of subtle texture, often incorporating traditional pigments and dyes in stains and washes. Focusing on harmony between spontaneity and intention, each discrete shape in her paintings provokes a conversation between visible and unseen landscapes.

  • Senem OezdoganBrooklyn, New York

    Senem Oezdogan (b. 1980) is a Brooklyn-based mixed media artist whose works meditate on the visual phenomenon of optical illusions through color and form. Smooth gradients give a sense of volume to the bold shapes depicted in Senem’s work that are subsequently flattened by her illusionistic use of spatial composition. Her color palette is equally beguiling, disrupting foreground and background and constantly forcing the viewer to reorient their sense of perspective.
