  1. Artist: Alyssa Pheobus Mumtaz

    December 13, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Utilizing simple geometric forms and a limited color palette, artist Alyssa Pheobus Mumtaz creates a stunning array of drawings by applying acrylic and dye to handmade papers. I love, love, love this work. Her drawings feel organic and primitive yet can stand simultaneously in a contemporary setting.


  2. Artist: Michael C. Hsiung

    September 9, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Bearded mermen, horned creatures and bears, oh my! The world created by the hand of Michael C. Hsiung is wonderfully skewed and filled with an odd assortment of mythical creatures. Each piece is paired with an equally charming (and sometimes lengthy) title, for example the last piece on the left: On the lesser known labors of Sir Anthony of Tuscany and how the exodus of the Lithuanian bears began counters the piece on the bottom right: On the Lithuanian bear’s revenge against the sons of Sir Anthony of Tuscany. And yes, he finds drawing hair to be therapeutic. 


  3. Artist: Jenni Rope

    August 17, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Jenni Rope works in various mediums taking color and shapes inspired by man-built structures and nature to create abstract landscapes. And if you squint your eyes, your mind begins to develop the scene. Throughout her work the same shapes begin to appear as if characters themselves, escaping the canvas and showing up in her drawings, sculptures and animations. The hand of the artist is apparent throughout her work creating movement and texture.

    See what happens when Jenni’s shapes come to life in this great little animation title Kiipeilypuu/The Climbing Tree.


  4. Artist: Liam Stevens

    Armed with a Pentel 0.7mm mechanical pencil, pile of colored paper and scalpel, Liam Stevens uses these basic materials to create images through expressive lines and shapes.  Liam’s impeccable skill at illustration and shading invites the viewer into these 2-dimensional worlds of whimsical realism.  

    Liam further explores his creativity by transforming his flat drawings into interactive scenes in this animated music video for My Robot Friend. 


  5. Artist: Jen Stark

    August 2, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Influenced by the wild and colorful culture of Miami, Jen Stark builds unimaginable, gravity-defying sculptures out of layers and layers of hand-cut paper.  Jen began working with paper when she studied abroad in France. Armed with two suitcases filled with clothes and no art supplies, she purchased a pack of assorted card stock due to its value and potential qualities as an medium.  She continues to redefine her work into new shapes and complex forms both as sculptural and animated pieces.
