Andrea Kowch, An Eclectix Artist Interview
There is a beautiful and surreal haunting quality to Andrea’s resplendent imagery, with an overall ambiance of frozen moments in time. Magical female personas share sisterly relationships confronting the viewer, and dominating stark landscapes. Feasts are prepared from farmed abundance while ominous birds flock and insects alight. Clouds of wild hair fly askew in a contrary wind and fields of wheat bow under pressures.
Featured Artist: Oscar Camilo de las Flores
Eclectix had the opportunity to view Oscar’s amazing work awhile ago at the ArtPad fair and we were amazed by their gigantic scale and never ending complex detail.

Featured Artist: Daria Endresen
A photographer, model and digital artist, Daria Endresen was born in Norway and currently lives in Paris. Daria’s subjects are otherworldly – resembling alien victims from a prison camp. With shaved heads and pale, ghostly corpse-like flesh, they are often stretched and pulled at, with roots or strings like a puppet or a suture. Her beings struggle – pulling apart or together, robot like and sedated with implied emotions.
