Rebekah Corah - Is a former Denver artist now based out of Tulsa, OK. The use of symbolism in my paintings such as butterflies, birds, keys, and locks, are imperative in communicating my ideas. I also represent the figure in my paintings because fear is very controlling of the body. Fear is direct and can surround and engulf us at times. Another reoccurring symbol in my work is red string that is wrapped around the flesh to indicate how one can become stripped down and clothed by the ugliness of fear. We then tend to view our identity and our fears as one in the same. The anger and frustration regarding fear usually is internal for me, but I chose to represent it externally because it exemplifies a better understanding of fear.
Julia Linova - Is a Ukrainian artist currently based out of Salt Lake City, UT. Her style touches different topics of today’s life including religion. Her earlier works were inspired by the people she met during her study in Lviv Franko University. In 2016 she spent a few months travelling former CIS countries (Georgia, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan) and Indian Mumbai and Goa. During her travel she stayed in monasteries discovering the taste of life of a religious novice and some of the indecencies of people claiming to be extremely religious and righteous. This experience influenced some of her later art works through which she is telling the stories of various human vice expressed in form of silhouettes and darkened colors. In her latest pieces she is experimenting with colors, using them to reveal true emotions of portrayed beings.
Amy Lee Lummus - My work explores my emotional mindset and feelings toward a concept or construct such as growth within human relationships, interpersonal and otherwise, and the constructs of society, such as the highly sexualized feminine experience as it pertains to the human relationship. I want my work to evoke a relatable feeling for the viewer; I want the viewer to understand his or her own human experience better by viewing my work.
