EK Interview: Christina Pettersson

EK_CP_MH
Christina Pettersson's black and white drawings portray a world where mystery still rules. Where the old gods and goddesses are alive and strong, without color she draws living, visceral pieces that draw you in, call to you, make you think of the world that might be, not see the world as it is. Her imagination runs deep and cannot be denied, nor resisted as it calls the viewer to dream with her. Check out her interview:

EK Interview: May von Krogh

EK_MVK_MH
May von Krogh's ceramics have a common thread, they're soaked in emotion, each a conscious and meaningful meditation on a theme. Besides that, each is an isolated incident, a standalone testament to her ability to create novel and nuanced work. Aesthetically they are deep and penetrating, most of her subjects are children, which makes their expressions all the more effective. Check out her interview
