Christopher Benson / Interbang Press
Christopher Benson has worked for over 40 years as a realist painter with a sensitivity to the geometries of modernist formalism. After spending decades learning how to paint more classically, he has created a springboard from which a more powerful improvisational vocabulary has launched. “It was in the back of my head from the beginning that a more robust, expressive language and mark-making lurked within me.”
Columbus, Ohio-based artist, Christopher Burk creates meticulously painted landscapes of oft-overlooked urban environments. His works impart an engaging atmospheric quality, and encourage the viewer to look at the geography around them in a new way.

Alice Leora Briggs
It is Always This Way
No One Will Explain the Details
Sue Bryan's landscape drawings have a deep personal association and connection to her Irish roots. The work offers a sense of place and belonging and captures the ineffable; evoking a feeling, or a memory, the drawings invite the viewer to look beyond and beneath what they see.
None But Ourselves
The Memory of Trees
Tom Chambers is a photographer best known for creating photomontages that move beyond documentation of the present and seek to merge reality and dreams. By photographing separate elements and assembling them, Chambers creates scenes that evoke surreal fairytales. His images are imbued with magical realism, legends, mysticism, dreams and symbolism.
Marwari Stallion #1
Jon deMartin is among the leading figurative artists working today and has taught life drawing and painting for more than twenty-years at the most prestigious academies and ateliers in the country. His figures and portraiture are set in multiple contexts, and at times the intricate delicacy of the subject is placed in stark contrast to industrial landscapes.
Drawing for 'Faith'
Study for Magic Hour
Marina Fridman is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist who works in a wide range of materials and techniques, moving fluidly between drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and video. Her work explores our perception of time and space, reality and mortality.
Stephanie Inagaki is a multifaceted artist living and working in Los Angeles. Her content in drawings, sculpture and metal-smithing ranges from self-portraiture to mythological narrative.
The Mexican artist, Kikyz1313 creates beautifully intricate ink, graphite, and watercolor works on paper. From beneath the initially alluring, and understated, first impression of the works, emerge unexpected oppositions and abject tensions. Studies in the afflicted wretchedness of humanity, her work is neither despondent nor obviously gory, but rather presents an aestheticized nightmare of sublime abhorrence; ambiguously gorgeous despite its agonizing discomfort.
Some Days Feel like This
San Francisco Bay Area artist, Beth Moon, has gained international recognition for her large-scale, richly toned platinum prints. “By using the longest lasting photographic process, I hope to speak about survival, not only of man and nature’s but to photography’s survival as well.”
Flight of the Raven
New York City based Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri is best known for his large-scale cinematic portraits of distinctive young women in rich prodigious landscapes. With tinges of Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics, Ozeri brings an ethereal and uninhibited sensibility to his paintings.
Polixeni Papapetrou was an Australian photographic artist who explored the relationship between history, contemporary culture, identity and being. By focusing on the theatricality and face of childhood, she explored an unconscious realm between the real and the imaginary, archetype and free play, child and adult and photography’s capacity to bridge truth and fiction.
American figurative artist, Bob Richardson, creates works combining elements of abstraction with elements of place. Mostly self taught, his work strives to capture his initial insights when working with the subject. “When I paint", he says, "I work to seize an unrehearsed moment of someone’s life … a snap shot in time frozen with no context”.
