Nathalie Lagace creates hybrid creatures that convey the raw, inexplicable emotions of being trapped in a limbo between worlds.

Mark Bryan describes painting as a process rather like dreaming while awake: a direct link to the subconscious.
He very rarely plans his paintings out beforehand (except for the political work) and prefers to see where each one takes him as it goes.
His portfolio also contains numerous war related images. He states:
Although turning inward is my first instinct and love, I can’t always stay inside my head and ignore what’s going on in the world. When the circus turns especially ugly or when a good idea appears, I feel the need and responsibility to make some kind of comment. Humor and satire have been my way to confront serious topics which are often too grim to portray directly.
There is always some satisfaction for me in pointing out the absurdities of human behavior and making fun of the villains of the day. I don’t know if this kind of work has any effect on the situation, but at least it has a therapeutic value for me and others of like mind.
If you happen to be looking for someone to artistically desecrate the beloved pop culture icons of your childhood, James Flaxman can deliver!
His portfolio is rife with pale, sickly, decayed, obese, oozing characters.
I highly encourage you to step into the world of BAKEA (Juan Carlos Paz), and delight in all the strange monsters.
