Nikola RadoviÄ‡ Sometimes while iâ€™m working I feel I can rely on capabilities of a graphic tablet more then I could with some traditional techniques and other times I just enjoy charcoal and the way it crumbles in contact with the surface. They are both fun and intimate as well, I like it. My work is mainly focused on animation, illustration and concept art for games or film.
JUNG EUN PARK
“Talking to the wall”
“Nobody knows what’s happening on the other side of wall”
“Safe place to live”
“Too warm to leave”
“A woman wearing a red skirt doesn’t know where to go”
â€œGrasses are taking me homeâ€?
“Calm lake in the island”
Jung Eun Park is a visual drawing artist. She has focused on working on paper, especially Korean paper with pencil and thread. Since she moved to different cities and countries, she has been obsessed about home physically and psychologically. In recent work, â€œMissing Homeâ€?, she simplifies a shape of house and objects, and rearranges them in different situations. The embroidered houses are connected each other by thread and get joined with another object, which she found from everyday life or new environment. Simplified and symbolized objects, such as a house, a yarn ball, grasses or threads are altered conceptually in her drawing so that their meanings and original uses are re-purposed and make a story of what she wants to talk about. Her drawings are simply the record of her intimate life, but also imply the psychological narratives of human being living in a new environment.
“Grass grows where we are together”
â€œGrass is growing in my bathtubâ€?

My name is Leigh Martin and I am a fiber and installation artist based in Central Oklahoma. Inspired by small details in the natural world, much of my work revolves around the intricate textures of fungi and how they blend in to their natural environment. At a glance and from a distance, my fiber installations meld in as a part of the magnificent, self-sustaining cycle that transforms living plants to detritus and further into minerals that Nourish other living plants. When viewed from afar, the knitted pieces appear natural and as though they belong in the installationâ€™s setting; However, on a closer encounter one finds that the pieces are not real fruiting bodies at all. The delicate knit stitch stands out and draws the viewer in for closer inspection. The viewer is suddenly aware of the organisms that surround them in daily life, bringing their attention to phenology and various stages of growth.
With a background in urban forestry, my purpose and founding ideas for my work revolve around a common deficit of interaction with and awareness of the details in our natural environment. I am of the belief that connecting to nature in this way is a crucial element to living a fulfilling and present life. Through my work, I hope to encourage viewers to closely inspect the seemingly mundane elements found right outside their doors through a fiber art medium, thus encouraging engagement and contemplation of these ecosystems and cultivating a stronger connection to nature.

Born in Italy, 1977. Graduated in English Literature from the University of Padova. Currently living in Madrid, Spain. Visual artist. The title of this project is “Fiorile”, the Italian translation of the name of a month in the French Revolution. Here, the term is interpreted as a contraction of ‘fiore’ (flower) and ‘femminile’ (female). The series is formed by black and white self-portraits, where different parts of the female body are accompanied by different kind of flowers.

Jana Brike Visualize yourself in a place where everything is resolved â€“ there is no drama, there is no pain or hurt or health issues, no fear and no problems, and no need for survival based actions, and you are at home, and everything is pure. What would you choose to do to fill your days? What is your purpose beyond the struggle? That is what I look for. And live for. www.janabrike.com
