A commitment to weekly creativity brings a new momentum and spirit of discovery to her work.

Minjae Lee is a young South Korean artist whose work expresses a semi-disturbing inner tension that is tough to ignore, even if you feel that you'd like to. It draws you in with its powerful colors, halting imagery and clever juxtaposition of beauty, innocence and fragility with brash, loud and aggressive. The 19-year old artist is mainly self-taught and uses old-fashion tools to create his illustrations - markers, pens, crayons, and acrylics.

Vernon Fisher - includes narratives in his artwork. "... I do know that when you read a text, you’re taken out of the space you’re in. I wrote a very vivid story about floating down the Ganges River. You feel the flow of water, see the stars wheeling overhead, feel fish sucking on the tips of his fingers. You come to the end of the story and find yourself suddenly staring at a piece of plywood. What interests me is having those two kinds of experiences available in the same piece. "

The Hurwitz Singularity - by Jonty Hurwitz. He creates a sculpture, then divides it and suspends it on different planes (which can be seen when look at it from the sides). Once viewed from the front, our depth perception is tricked and we see a full sculpture that appears as if the piece is one solid form! .......GREAT INSPIRATION FOR A HIGH SCHOOL SCULPTURE LESSON!!
