  1. Artist: Christian Maychack

    February 13, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    Squishing colored epoxy within wooden moulds supported by shims and tree rings, artist Christian Maychack creates some exceptional pieces of art. These playful sculptures resemble vivid formica that would be quite welcome in my home, in fact I would be very pleased to have Christian’s work adorn my walls.

  2. Artist: Garry Noland

    Equipped with tape, vinyl and contact paper artist Garry Noland creates these wonderfully colorful and textured pieces by including whatever happens to get stuck to the aforementioned materials. Noland presses tape to his studio floor picking up paint, old bits of tape and other floor debris embracing the unknown before collaging all of the elements together.

    Ancient Pleasures is a collection of collaged pieces from artist Matthew Craven masterfully combing black & white imagery, hand-drawn patterns and daubs of pink. Matthew transforms primitive structures into compelling graphic pieces of art.

    The collage work of Virginia Echeverria Whipple is awesome! Each piece feels like a still from a wild dream; confetti rain, spaces slowing collapsing inward, floating abstract shapes, cheetahs covered in fresco!

  5. Artist: Randy Grskovic

    Randy Grskovic transforms our perception of reality through his collaged work. Instilling humor, beauty and mystery into familiar imagery: landscapes, family portraits and candid photographs. Memory is tricky, when we recall a moment in our history holes appear in the story, so we use imagery as a guide. Through his work, Randy explores what can happen when this documentation is lost, how will we remember?

  6. Artist: Lena Wolff

    January 31, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    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.

  7. Artist: Claire Falkenberg

    January 24, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    There is something frustrating yet mystifying about the work of Claire Falkenberg. Massive hazy orbs appear almost illuminated and purposefully obstruct our full perspective, allowing only subtle hints of what may lie beneath. I feel compelled to stare, as if my gaze will break through the barrier revealing the hidden imagery.newday_clairefalkenberg dusk_clairefalkenberg winter_clairefalkenberg tree_clairefalkenberg

  8. Artist: Shaun Kardinal

    January 24, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    It should come to no surprise that I love the work of Shaun Kardinal, who so wonderfully combines my two favorite materials into his art: thread and paper.  Shaun applies thread with calculated precision, embroidering symmetrical patterns over collaged ephemera. His pieces are incredibly affordable as well, so be sure to stop by his shop.connotation29_shaunkardinal connotation38_shaunkardinal connotation36_shaunkardinal connotation37_shaunkardinal

    Shaun also offers the series Alterations, a collection of altered vintage postcards:

  9. Artist: Hagar Vardimon-van Heummen

    January 17, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    Simply put, artist Hagar Vardimon-van Heummen proclaims ‘love paper, love thread and adore the combination.’ In this lovely series titled Lonely HousesHagar expands from the familiar to extraordinary works of art. I particularly love how the angle of the thread mutually competes with the angles of the structures.

  10. Artist: Chris Duncan

    January 17, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    Chris Duncan paints such blazing and brilliant shapes of color amassed into circles, diamonds and starbursts. His inclusion of colorful dots shine like candy or crystals. Chris employs a wide variety of materials in his work, from photos to string to mirrors and light, all as a means to investigate perception and balance through repetition and reflection.
