Cristina-Troufa_web1
Cristina Troufa is an artist based out of Porto, Portugal who creates acrylic on canvas paintings, however, her approach to her work is quite unique. Troufa very carefully and selectively renders specific areas of her paintings while leaving significant amount of negative space for her subjects to occupy within. If anything, it seems as if the negative space and unrendered portions in her work is what breaths life into her subjects.

“The truth will set you confused.”

Scott-Scheidly_web1
"At age four, I attempted my first art project by devouring a 10 pack of crayons, thus turning my diaper into a Jackson Pollack. At age six, I was introduced to the sweet nectar of school paste. At around this same time period, I began producing turkey drawings by tracing my hand. At age seven, I lost my thumb in an unfortunate Big Wheel accident ending my successful 'Hand Turkey Period'. At age ten, I ate more paste, however at age eleven, I switched to water based paints & modeling clay. Between age twelve to sixteen, I was in a daze from the paints I had eaten which I found out to be oil based. I did not produce much art during this time which we will call the 'Your Sons Not Quite Right Period'."
