Another November, Photography by Laura Stevens
Laura Stevens’ narrative portraits are powerful documents of the emotional chronicles of women. Often set in domestic landscapes they are highly dramatic, beautifully lit and composed. Full of heartbreak, loneliness, isolation and alienation – the imagery is intensely personal yet so full of humanity that we all can relate.
Not Just Architecture, But Artitechture
Street Art: CRYPTIK
Cryptik creates mesmerizing mandala-like designs, calligraphic iconography painted with crisp precision and mind bending detail. His inspirations are compassionate and spiritual in nature, pulling from Zen teachings, Buddha, Ganesha, Eastern philosophies and iconography – in a palette of earthy browns, golds and black.
Northern California artist Deborah Oropallo deconstructs just about every riveting image she constructs, leaving us with a fresh, powerful and unfinished feeling. Her works strike with life’s immediacy – fragmented and torn with upheaval and finished with graphic layered grace.
