Kristina Lenzi & Marti Grace Ashby: The Self: Two Artists, Multiple Projections

Marti Grace Ashby : Multiple Personalities | “To the viewer, it becomes obvious the paintings don’t
resemble the painter. You’d be right regarding the
outward appearances. The work evolved into more of
what could be called “internal self-portraits.” I might
have made that up.” Read More.

Kristina Lenzi : The Self Important Artist | “These distorted self-portraits come from a humorous
place in me. While I draw, I laugh throughout the
drawing process at the idea of placing myself in a sort
of absurdity. I find little bodies to collage first and then
I add the drawing of the long neck and large, distorted
head with a specific persona in mind. But upon closer
inspection, after the process, seriousness emerges in
regard to the drawings as finished products.” Read More.

Amber Marie Peck: Paper Bandages

“I began work on “Paper Bandages” in my Brooklyn apartment, about a month after NYC locked down (2020). I wasn’t coping well with the sudden loss and limitations I was
experiencing as an artist, grad student, and mother. My school campus closed in March. I lost access to the space and equipment I depended on, the precious time spent with
my cohort, and the ability to make art away from my children. Our Thesis shows were canceled, along with graduation. For about a month, I felt so angry at the Universe, and so defeated by my circumstances, I had no idea how to move forward.” Read More.

Mckenna Anderl: Dream It Then Do It

Photo: BDAC

“Learning from my love of multimedia artwork I decided to use unusual materials such as cardboard, tissue paper, and packaging supplies for the backdrop of my artwork. Combining bold colors and small details I work to create a fun and carefree environment. My artwork reflects the changes in my life and the changes in my artwork as I have experimented with many different materials and processes from ballpoint pen drawings to multimedia paintings.” Read More.
