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.

Created with equal parts deliberation and experimentation, the results are rainbow-hued, architectural, fantastical compositions that take on a psychedelic life of their own.

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.
