Adina Andrus
Adina AndrusImage: Path #5: following footprints, 2018.Adina Andrus is a mixed media artist, born in Romania, currently based in the New York area. Her work touches upon the fields of psychology and anthropology as well as history and religion, exploring themes that she finds herself attracted to in light of personal experiences and current events—women's representations in ancient and contemporary culture, the theme of "the outsider", the dynamics of human interactions. The pieces are semi-abstract, highly textural and multi-layered both physically and in meaning. Adina studied art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Art Students League in New York City and her work has been exhibited nationally, most recently at the St. Louis Artists Guild, Gallery 254 in New York, Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild and the Delaware Contemporary.adinaandrus.com

Noel Caban
Noel CabanImage: Do we really fit in?, 2018My work examines the textures and form of the urban. I am interested in distress, the faded and forgotten. The forms and textures I saw growing up in my Latin community here in Brooklyn, where often the result of failed social, political and economic policy. In the time I’ve lived here, much has changed, however; the disparity between the haves and have not’s has widened.I paint texture and form as placeholders and reminders of the work yet to be done on behalf of the underserved in this city. When creating this work, I use household materials: Latex, enamel, tarp, mesh, signage, the printed and found. I intend to connect the viewer with a lived moment and experience, as a reminder of the importance of not ignoring or turning blind eyes to conditions found in our communities.Noel Caban earned his BFA from the State University College at Buffalo and his MFA in from Pratt Institute. Currently resides in Brooklyn, has shown, curated and taught in NYC.www.ncaban.com

Elise DeGarmoImage: Family Portrait, 2016. 36 in x 36 inAs a visual storyteller and color enthusiast, Elise is fearless in the pursuit to find the perfect medium to tell her story. She has a fascination and a love for material and is constantly exploring different techniques to create art. Her favorite materials to work with include bronze, aluminum, plaster, oil paint, wood and found objects. At any given time, Elise has at least three projects in motion. Her longest running project, and current obsession, is illustrating a purely visual book as told through the eyes of a bird, a dog and a boy. With a non-linear storyline, the book takes the reader on a journey of enlightenment and discovery about the main driver of deforestation (animal agriculture). She hopes that through art she can bring a broader awareness about animal rights and environmental sustainability as well as to inspire action.elisedegarmo.com

Driven by a punk ethos, Todd employs a cut and paste method to highlight the tactility of his chosen materials, represent the construction of identity, and discuss the limitations of the photographic image.todddurm.com/

Christine Kim
Christine KimImage: wojak time capsule, 2018. Christine Kim (b. 1991) is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice includes installation, painting, computer animation, photography and video. Her work explores a liminal state of revealing and concealing cryptic narratives that require a certain humanness to activate. Kim’s process involves archiving and ciphering fragments of personal, collective and counter memories; scrolling through the daily inundation of images and information, she grasps bits and pieces to stow away and edit with — the results often emote a haphazardness or a sense of forcible construction. Propelled by a poignant feeling of loss and degradation in aging, her work serves to ultimately embody the Okinawan concept of ikigai, roughly translated as “a reason to get up in the morning, a reason for being.” To that end, humor is an important element in her work, as a way to balance everyday anxieties. Kim received her BFA at the Rhode Island School of Design, and is currently living and working in Brooklyn.christinekimart.com
Lara Atallah
Lara AtallahImage: Untitled, Beirut #11, 2017Lara Atallah (b. 1989, Beirut) is a New York-based artist and writer. Her practice is informed by her interest in the political nature of landscape, and the power it holds to reshape our perception of borders. Using an array of different image-making methods such as Polaroids, still life, sun prints, and digital collages to manipulate narratives, her work examines how the act of crossing a boundary or drawing one impacts the photographic image. She holds an MFA in Photography from Parsons The New School of Design. Her work has been exhibited in the US and internationally, and is part of the Onassis Cultural Foundation's collection in Athens. She was also the 2015 recipient of the Georgia Fee Artist residency in Paris.www.lara-atallah.com
