Atlas Moon Rodígruez-Decker

Painter, Performance artist, Maker, Ceramicist, Installation Artist/Sculptor

Inspired by the natural textures and island-rainforest landscapes of Puerto Rico, my decorative work often features robust colors with a maximalist approach. The porcelain ceramic work as well as the oil paintings, challenge the sanctity of the historically elitist materials with abstracted sceneries and asymmetrical design elements. My performance and sculptural work tends to focus on my path as a transgender latinx person. Using ceramics as a main medium, I aim challenge my viewers perceptions of others and themselves.

Soyoung L Kim

 

Painter, Writer, Installation Artist/Sculptor

Through my art, I seek to convey a place that exists in all our unconscious, a place where we are free to feel, to express, to be accepted. Because of the many displacements in my life, home is something I have had to carry within me and is expressed through my art. With the marks I make on the canvas with a paintbrush or the marks I make on paper with a pen or a pencil, I hope to not only remember all the places I have lived in so that I have a sense of home in my own memory, but also to leave behind something of myself for those places to remember me.

Ally Thatcher, Fallen Cargo

Photographer, Illustrator, Graphic Designer, Installation Artist/Sculptor

I'm an independent designer that has dedicated my art + design practice to protecting and preserving black culture. So much of our history is whitewashed and I find that to be a form of violence. The work I do for Fallen Cargo is designed to peel back the layers of whitewashed history in order to understand our truth. We must look into our past and our present to understand our future.

Nina Miller

Painter, Collage artist, Maker, Installation Artist/Sculptor

In my practice I work within a rigid framework combining organic form and color to evoke playful moments of time. Materials that I find on the street and natural, strange found objects particularly interest me. My work involves experimenting with combinations of discarded materials and fabricated form. By using color and surface treatment on these collected forms, I create compositions focused on memory, nostalgia and childhood. The marks and colors applied to forms and canvas are thoughtful yet come from an intuitive place. This approach brings curiosity through mark making and results in unexpected moments that inspire the work. The multiple mediums used within a framework begin to interact and blend inside those moments.

Jaina Cipriano

Photographer, Maker, Writer, Installation Artist/Sculptor, Director 

Jaina Cipriano is a photographer, set designer and director. She is creating visual metaphors for emotions she has trouble defining. Without the help of Photoshop, she builds physical environments that open her subjects up to become part of something bigger. This primes the space for an authenticity that is so visceral it brings the viewer back to their own memories. Jaina's work takes the shape of a dream you wake up already forgetting, tasting only the vivid edges while the center dissolves. Her work can be seen this summer at The Griffin Museum of Photography, and was recently published in GRLSQUASH, Gastronomica and The Boston Herald. Jaina is has just wrapped on her first short film, "You Don't Have to Take Orders from The Moon," a magical realism story about darkness inside and outside us.
