Thomas Roth | Santa Fe, NM
Showing in the National Museum of Art in Sweden at age 20 was an early accomplishment. Spending many years in advertising as an Art Director and Creative Director gave me daily creative work experience. My Scandinavian approach was always to clean up and make the work as minimal as possible. Clients would ask to put in more and more stuff. I believed that my job was to take out as much clutter as possible. Because of that, I won more than 300 industry awards for my effective work. That has lead quite naturally to what I’m doing now; Abstract, Minimal and process-based.

Sara Pittman | Charleston, SC
Art has always been an intrinsic part of my being. Growing up in an artistic family, I was always surrounded by those who shared the desire to simply create, whether that meant watching my mother create encaustic works or finding my grandfather carving a piece of wood in a cloud of cigar smoke. Constant support and inspiration from my loved ones, I naturally began evolving as an artist and spent much of my time painting as a child. I found myself trapped in the world of art, a world that made the most sense to me and a place that spoke my language. And I've been delightfully trapped ever since...

Bronwyn Strickland | Dolores, CO
I'm a nonrepresentational painter working in mixed media. I create minimalist visuals for those who want to view art in order to feel present within them, to feel spaciousness and connection. My own journey is a tale of nonconformity sprouting from my parents' stories that they shared with me as a kid. Stories of their travels, the people they met, and the decisions they made. I needed to understand different cultures away from the mountains of North Carolina where I grew up. So from earning a degree in Mandarin Chinese to holding office jobs to embracing my synesthesia to doing the internal work of facing my personal shadows, I realized that my art was quietly evolving with me, refining it into simpler yet bolder expressions.

Charles Magallanes | Oxnard, CA
Ever since I was a child, I have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of relationships. What starts out as contemplation and disambiguation, becomes finessed into a carnival of color leaving only a sense of depth and vibrancy that layers hidden meanings.
Sunyoung Lee | Syracuse, NY
Approaching abstract painting in a way that uniquely reflects Sunyoung Lee (Korea)' s cultural heritage and painter's painterly brush marks, but process to explore the use of other approaches of thoughts such as sculpture, fashion, architecture, and writing. Sunyoung’s paintings consist of marks that make-up a painter’s vocabulary, a language of hand-made marks, erased marks, impasto drag, and thin pools of color that play out within the structure of the canvas.

Lara Nesser | Brooklyn, NY
Having grown up in Beirut Lebanon, I am fascinated by failures of conflict management. Institutional and social frameworks protect us,
but can also generate anxiety. These structures can feel confusing, excessive, or silly, like standing in front of hundreds with your arms up in the airport X-ray scanner. They can save us from embarrassment. They often cause it.
Combining organic forms with materials taken from social scripts and architectures of contemporary public life, I am playfully replicating glitches in the machine: Habits, Miscommunications,
the moments before a tiny breach in code.

Steven Long | Fontana, CA
Saritha Margon | Santa Barbara, CA
I am an artist living and working in Santa Barbara California. Artists that have strongly influenced me are first and foremost Virginia Woolf. She was hard headedabout form in her writing but talked simply about everyday life. Jasper Johns for his love of the painted surface. Robert Rauschenberg for his invention and playfulness. Mark Rothko for his emotion and beauty. Louise Bourgeois for her honesty and invention.
Linda O'Niell | Lafayette, CO

Paula Wiggins | Cincinnati, OH
"Everyone wants a place in this world. Not on the sidelines, but a true place, with meaning and substance and beauty. A place where one feels the ground beneath one's feet, and where one can still look up at the stars and sense the earth turning. There are days when this place feels assured, when nothing can shake our confidence and strength, when we walk with boldness, unafraid of the path we have chosen." -MP Wiggins
