Matthew Saba is a painter based out of Denver, Colorado who is obsessed with the frailty of light and the texture of paint. The rendering between his strokes tend to disperse or fade, which really brings out a peculiar incomplete finish to his work. "Sometimes things fall apart for the better." -Matthew Saba.

Timothy Hyun-Soo Lee's work is honest, revealing, and raw, and his interview is nothing less.

EK_EN_MH
Edie Nadelhaft's work may show the surface of things, but her content goes far deeper. Painting from a place that encapsulates the entire spectrum of emotion, Edie's work depicts how finite humans are, and how infinite the sea, a force beyond our control and lacking regard to our feelings, is.
