    These illustrations from Devin Rutz are indeed illustrations and shouldn’t be mistaken for marbled paintings. Through these collaged ink drawings, Devin creates such a likeness to marbling. He even captures the dreamy, ethereal quality typically seen in marbling.

    The illustration work of Sarah Burwash makes me so happy. Her drawings are so delicately executed, displaying a bundle of whimsy and beauty. Her ceramic work is equally intriguing and was recently featured on Buy Some Damn Art

    Memory Palaces from Edie Fake is a series of pen, ink, and gouache drawings re-envisioning Chicago’s queer history (both real and unreal). Edie’s work centers around creating a queer utopia through his series of drawings, performances and zines. The Memory Palaces series is particularly fantastic, the decadent and art deco-esque facades are quite captivating.

    Marina Muun states that she is inspired by the natural, unnatural and supernatural; a perfect combination that spawns into delightful works of art. I am particularly fond of the piece above, DepartureNot only becuase it reminds me of the Mook creature from My Grey Sky, but Marina captures death in such a poetic manner. The life slowly unraveling from the body. 

    But she swept my heart with her work Collecting, a simple artist book with a series of painted vitrines.collecting-marinamuun raindeity-marinamuun littlefriends-marinamuun

    The work of Valerie Hammond is so delicate and lovely and shrouded in mystery. I especially love her sculpture work, it reminds me so much of the earlier sculpture work of artist Petah Coyne. Valerie draws from her great fascination and mystery of ancient religious visuals from Tibetan medical drawings to Buddhist sculptures; working across various mediums from painting to printmaking to photography.

    Sabine Finkenauer’s artistic talents spread across several mediums from sculptural work with wrought iron and wood to drawing, painting and collage work. Her art is clean and simple, yet challenges our perceptions of layout and space.

    Inspired by the shapes in traditional American quilts, Lena Wolff collages each piece with paper and hand-cut painted pieces of watercolor and gouache or simply designs them with pencil. The triangle is commonly used in quilting, in Lena’s case the triangle successfully carries the eye through the design.

    My heart swoons for the work of Mario Kolaric. In his series, Diary Fragments, Mario takes pen to paper as a daily exercise, allowing his moods and emotions to flow into each piece. I love the abstract quality of each drawing; appearing like a topographic survey of the mind.

    Hollis Brown Thornton plays with memory and time by fragmenting nostalgic imagery. Hollis uses acrylic paints, markers and photo transfer to control the amount of visibility and degradation within each image, playing with how pop culture, world events and outdated technologies languish as time moves forward and memory fades.

    I think it’s fair to say that I have an obsession for triangles, so these drawings from Alyson Fox are like candy to my eyes! In this series titled Quilts, Alyson combines marker, paper and watercolor drawings to form these pleasing designs.
