Sprung from the depths of the metropolis, Ivy is influenced by the juxtaposition of natural world, forged natural material and technology. A need for worship and appreciation of our natural habitats she creates works with metal, glass, wood, and found objects i.e. seeds, flowers and bones to show our cycle of life and death. In an altar based way of creating, every material and object is important to the experience of the work. Asking questions about sustainability and truth behind waste, works are birthed from inspiration for change.

An artist trained by the woods of Maine, the work of Logan is best described as fusion of life and death with a notion of time as the ultimate orchestrator of all things.  Drawing from the mysteries of the past; from the desiccated roots of a great first growth tree, or the corroded vertebra and skull of a deer that died winters past, he works specifically with the anatomy of what once lived.  Creating relics of organic systems that mimic concepts fossilized within our cultural zeitgeist he generate questions about how we live and die and what it means to be human.  The visceral way Logan works is purely reactionary to the materials being worked, growing and dying in each moment to be transmuted in a constantly evolving cycle of the unending process that we are all subject to.

A tattoo artist originating from the rurals of Connecticut, Chase has cultivated relations throughout New England over the years as well as a few distant regions of the country. His personal work is primarily an emotion based abstraction of the photonic realm. Inspired by the most ancient of cultures while simultaneously being motivated through modern technological pursuits; Chase works within a melting pot of mediums that is ever growing from living flesh, decorative glass paintings and furniture fabrication to functional utility prototypes.  For the sake of sustainability, Chase has continued to re purpose glass and other usable material that would otherwise be deemed garbage at the mercy of various corporations and construction companies. Through this randomized pallet he orchestrates symmetry and organization through patience and an open mind. The majority of his creative process revolves around the design of the microverse and how it translates into human perspective and the latter. Art is essential to our evolution if we wish to be effective in the realms of innovation and change. Without stretching our imagination beyond its limits there is no hope for improvement.
Visualization. Intention. Conception.

An engineer of imagination, Mary “Murph” is a New England native studio artist and live painter who uncovered the creative outlet of painting in her early years. Seeking to articulate the ineffable, the dark interstices of dreams and what may lurk in those fabled precincts, beneficent or inimical, her main focus in art has always been to make her audience ask questions and revel in the unknown. Her work brings a contemporary and often dark twist to surrealism and transcendentalism – honoring the complexities, simplicities, and dualities of the worlds we inhabit, nebular environments where forms are summoned to speak from the chaos. Working in oil, acrylic, and watercolors, each piece she spawns seems to come together unplanned, allowing her visions to nestle into their new homes on the canvas. She finds inspiration in bizarre occurrence, oddities, and all things eldritch, uncharted, and unanswered.

Soyoon means a “bright light” in Korean. With every light, there lies a shadow, and it is within the shadows Soyoon’s affinities lay.  There is polarity in everything and beauty can also be found in the decay, the broken, and the damaged. 

To her, nowhere and everywhere is home all at once. “Home is a place that once you leave, you can never go back”. Everything stays exactly the same but changes at the same time and home becomes but a memory. This transience and nostalgia is apparent in her work, as she rearranges fragments of time and places them onto one canvas or screen, aiming to create a space that is unattainable, just as “home” is unattainable to her.  

Soyoon is inspired by and appreciates what is overlooked and corroded by time, recognizing and embracing her demons to create work that reflects the mania within.
